Golem deck is something players either love or hate. Because of its slow speed, it can easily be outmaneuvered by faster cards like Executioner and Barbarians. Even though those two cards mentioned were nerfed in 2017, they are still powerful way to neutralize the Golem deck.
All is not lost though. When combined with hog rider deck, Golem deck can unleash major pain on the battlefield. Without having to log into hacked server, you can assemble a legit deck that can compete against all the Clash Royale cheaters who has unlimited gems at the disposal.
Getting the gem efficiently without spending hours of farming is what separates the good Clash Royale players to another. Hog cycle must be monitored careful and unleashed in right timing.
