Basically this is a instuctable to help you protect your dark elixir you have worked so hard to gain. Remember this is not a perfect design none are, customize it to your needs.
Step 1: Dark Elixer and Mortar
First stick your dark elixir vat in the middle surrounded by your best walls. Then place a mortar under the box made with it.
Step 2: Air Defences
Place your air defences 2 squares next to the mortar.
Step 3: More Mortars
Add 2 mortars next to the air defences. Then wall them in.
Step 4: Wiz and Castle
Place your clan castle above the dark elixer. Then place two wizard towers next to it then wall it in.
Step 5: Barb King
Put yout Barbarian King at the bottom of the existing village (oh yeah got my Barbarian King) and 2 hidden teslas.
Step 6: Archers
Add 2 archers towers then wall in.
Step 7: More Defences
So now add a cannon at the top then flank it with 2 archers towers then add walls.
Step 8: Much More
Now place 2 cannons on both sides with a gold storage, wall in. Then below that add your last cannons and elixir storages.
Step 9: Ending
