That’s right, the new hotness, Golava and Shattered Lavaloonion attacks! I’m Clash Without Gemming, and in this thread we will learn how to use them. This strategy is for town hall 9s and 10s. First lets go over how to use the Golava Strategy.
This attack is a 2 stage attack: Ground raid then air raid.
Goal of Ground Raid:
Take out 1 air defense
Take out enemy Queen
Take out enemy Clan Castle Troops
Goal of Air Raid: Sweep the base
This video covers how to use the strategy effectively (watch at 1:20)
As you can see, you pick the side where the air defense and queen is closest, deploy your Golem, then archer queen behind. Then spread out your wizards, and drop the Wall Breakers, make sure to time them so the mortar won’t take them out. Once the wizards destroy the surrounding structures, drop the Barbarian King so he goes towards the center of the base. Once the clan castle gets activated and approached your troops, activate the kinds ability to take them out.
Once the Enemy queen, air defense, and enemy clan castle troops go down, it is time for the air raid. Drop each lava hound on an air defense, then drop the balloons in packs of 2-4 on the defenses that are being distracted by the lava hounds. Once the balloons get close to the air defenses, drop a rage spell. (You have 3 rage spells for each air defense). After the balloons use the rage spells, they should be grouping around the center, now would be a good time to use the heal spell. The Lava Pups should be able to clean up the base.
Exceptions to GoLava strategy:
If a base is too weak, replace a Lava Hound with 15 Minions, otherwise the Lava Hounds will not break and you will run out of time to 3 star the base.
Ground raid not going to plan? It is OK to use a healing spell if needed.

Shattered Lavaloonion Attack Strategy
Mastered Golava? Now may be a good time to test your skills with Shattered Lavaloonion. It is similar, but has a few differences.
As you can see, the main difference is that Shattered Lavaloonion leans more to the ground raid side than GoLava does. It uses 2 Golems instead of one, but now you need to take out 2 air defenses instead of one. Here is a video that covers how to use Shattered Lavaloonion effectively
In this video you can you can see that I used one of the “exceptions” which was using the heal spell in the ground raid. Raids don’t always go to plan, so be ready to react quickly!
For ground raid you spread your Golems, put 3 wizards behind each one, then drop Wall Breakers. Then deploy your heroes in between the 2 golems, and they will head to the center. Once the enemy clan castle is gone, along with queen and 2 air defenses, start the air raid. One lava hound per air defense, then balloons on distracted air defenses. Use rage spells on each air defense area when the balloons approach, then drop a rage spell around the town hall area when the balloons get there.
For Town Hall 10s : Use freeze spells on inferno towers when balloons approach, or if a single target locks onto a lava hound. Try to freeze as many air targeting buildings as possible!
