Hi guys, this attack uses only 2 units. Balloons and Minions. Its often called Ballonions and variations off that. It can be effective at both fairly low levels and high levels. Its a high cost/high gain method and tends to result in 2-3 stars and plenty of elixir.

Most bases are good for an attack. Look for bases with lower level x-bows (or ground only), lower level wizard towers and weaker air defenses.
[optional] use a minion to draw out CC troops and to try and target air bombs if you think you can guess where they are. Destroy CC troops with your own CC troops or with minions/heroes.
Choose the side of the base that has the strongest air defenses. The quicker they are taken out the less damage done. Target wizard towers & air defenses first.
The first units you put in to the main attack should be balloons. The only exception is if you want to put down heroes to try and take out/tank defenses.Spread out or in two groups along one side of the base. As soon as they are attracting fire spread the minions behind them and they will clean up. Wizard towers will eradicate them so keep them away from those.
A rage spell or a healing spell can be used if you are taking lots of damage to the balloons. Typically its best to use the rage spell first (to take out the brunt of the defenses (2 can be used if you are attack in two groups) and then a healing spell or 2 as your balloons begin to lose large amounts of health.
(No execution notes)
This is a powerful attack and it costs (both time and resources). So only attack rich targets. Its both effective for farming (providing you attack rich well protected targets) and for trophy hunting.
Footnote 1: this can be adjusted to troop capacity by having no less than 30 minions and no more than 40 with the rest taken up by balloons. A minimum of 25 balloons and 30 minions is a must.
