    Keep a building and a hard hitter in your deck
    eg. Tomb and mini pekka (or lumber jack).

    In terms of cards:
    1) Barb hut is very annoying to hog users

    2) Valkyrie is good, she clears the support very effectively

    3) IT is good, as he doesn't have zap, but he can out cycle your IT fairly easily

    4) Graveyard is quite good, especially when his ice golem is out of rotation

    5) Elixir collector is good if you have other fireball bait troops

    6) Overlevel fireball is a nightmare to hog cycle users, because musketeer is his most important card

    7) Prepare multiple counters to stop hog (1 building & minipekka/ebarbs/bowler)

    8) Have a cheap answer to a lone musketeer

    9) Make yourself unpredictable, do not use skarmy/barbs to stop hog everytime, prediction log/fireball+log is easy for him

    10) Do not give them value fireball, hog cycle deck can also be played as a fireball cycle deck.


    In terms of deck types:
    1) Big beat down deck: Do your best to survive the first two minutes, have a pump, end the game with one big push, have a fireball/lighting ready.

    2) Spell bait: It is quite good against hog cycle, if he saves fireball for minion horde & log for barrel, princess/skarmy will then cause trouble

    3) Lavaloon/heavy air decks: It is quite good against hog cycle as musketeer is the all important air defense

    Hog 2.6 cycle got me 150 trophies higher than my previous trophy high in on day and it is amazing. I got to 3998 with a level 7 hog and ice golem and level 9 skeletons and level 9 ice spirit...

    I'm actually uploading a video in a couple hours to YouTube on how I play against a quick cycle hog deck. Golem defense is going up now and the hog is next.

    I don't use any buildings, but I keep my barbarians on hand to deal with the hog. I try to get ahead of the hog deck quickly and play defense. If I'm not able to get ahead early, I play defense until the one minute mark, when my more expensive deck isn't as much of a liability, then I'm able to get some attacks in.

    I use Knight, Barbarians, Wizard, Arrows, Balloon, Freeze, Princess, Spear Gobs

    Would fire spirit work better than ice spirit?
    using ice spirit for faster Cycling is it?
