This strategy is for Clan Wars and for push because of the expensive cost and the train time. BUT it is useful and will punish everyone that have anti-dragon base. (And it requires some luck--3 air bombs next to each other can ruin everything)
Take the barb king if you have it. If there aren't any CC reinforcements, change 20 archers, 3 barbarian into 3 balloons and 4 minions. Clan castle troops: 1 dragon or 4 balloons.(You can check for whether you want to bring balloons or a dragon in the next section) Level four healing spell is highly recommended-- But if you don't have them, that's OK.
Minimum Troop Housing Space Required: 190 Minimum Spell Housing Space Required: (not specified)
If there are any CC troops, lure them( you can check whether or not if there's any CC troops on scout)(If they are anti-ground then don't lure) to the corner and kill them. Use all 20 archers and 2 remaining barbarians(and if you have it, the barbarian king). If the enemy CC troop is tough enough to even survive, then call your dragon in CC.
After the CC troops are killed, spray your balloons on one side of the map. Be sure that balloons will not be pushed by air SWEEPER. They will push up the defense line slowly but steadily... Also you can also use CC dragon as a meat shield for air defense, archer tower and etc. You may also use reinforcement balloons to let your job easier.
Deploy the minions for clean up. Put them on the same place as where the balloons were.
Deploy the barbarian king either after all minions are deployed or after most cannons are destroyed.
When a group of your balloons are lower than half health, place a healing spell. The balloons don't have a lot of hitpoints and they will be healed up quickly.
Place a rage when they get close to an air defense or if they are getting pushed by a air sweeper. They will really speed up!
Place your second heal when they are close to an air defense or if there's another group of balloons are severely damaged.
Enjoy the war bonus loot!
(No execution notes)
This is a 3 star balloon strategy because if your balloons are completely destroyed, there maybe won't have enough timefor the minions to take down the town hall. So it is likely to be a 3 star or a 1. You can be a master if you really study your opponent's base correctly!
