Best Clash Royale Cards


The Top Ten

1 Prince

The prince SUCKS. The prince is only good if your opponent is a noob and uses the royal giant (The prince will kill the royal giant easily and then go attack your opponent's tower,) The prince can be countered so easily with cheap troops, it costs 5 elixir and does not have that much health. It may seem good in arenas 1-5 but he is so easily stopped. The mini pekka is a lot better when used properly

When first starting the game, the prince might seem great but in arena 6 and above he sucks.

Understand that the prince is an epic card and EPIC CARDS ARE 20 TIMES MORE RARE THAN RARE CARDS. When starting off, common and rare cards' level will be quite even to prince's level but its practically impossible to get prince to lv 3 before you reach the point where the prince just sucks

When your below 1500 trophies this card is good. But when you get above 2000 this card is super easy to counter. Shouldn't be number one. Sparky should be number one definitely - TheHabsFan

He's good if you know how to use him. Yes, he can be countered easily, that's why you have to put splash damage troops in front and behind him. - Oliveleaf

The singer is great this card sucks... - Lazo419

2 X-Bow

This is a horrible card. Super easy to counter. Not much health. And it costs six - TheHabsFan

Its really hard to get X-bow to target your opponent's tower. it can be used to snipe a bomb tower or inferno tower but mortar in cheaper. In my opinion this should be number two on the list as worst cards

I got to agree with you. it's the worst unless used right or the other guy isn't trying

3 Baby Dragon

This card is not horrible, but it isn't the best. It has moderate everything but once up to arena 6 to 9 it's pretty useless if not played correctly

Baby Drag is useless in arena 4 and above..

This guy can be an awesome airborne tank which is very helpful against hordes or giants. Combine this with a (Mini-) P.E.K.K.A. behind it and the tower is done for.

4 Witch

A level one witch summons level 6 skeletons. Deploy her to counter a prince, after that the witch will still survive and would only take one hit from a prince, no you can deploy a giant in front of her after countering the prince

This woman is not bad as it seems. When played wise, together with hordes or something like that, this can be very useful. Also, never underestimate her Skeletons she spawns, they can be very nasty.

They are good at countering troops, but they can be wasted when opponents use bombers or the valkyrie to kill it. - Oliveleaf

The witch is so good but underrated. the witch's skeletons can do a lot of damage if nothing is shooting it. When play properly you can use the witch for both defense and offense, and it you can get a witch to stay alive after stopping your opponent's attack, you can stick a giant (or giant skeleton)in front of it, that's how some people got to arena 6 as a level one, yo

5 Zap

One of the most useful cards, and most used cards in the game.

6 Hog Rider V 4 Comments
7 Mega Minion
8 Giant

This card is pretty great for lower arenas, but if you kill the troops behind it quickly, almost anything could counter it. Though its still pretty great, but its brother -Royal Giant- beats him to it.

Try to counter prince with witch, witch survives, stick giant in front of witch. Then watch what happens to your opponents tower.

Really good card. Good for using it like a wall and putting troops behind it and does good damage to the towers - TheHabsFan

9 Elite Barbarians

It's now the best card in the game. They're very fast, strong and they have a lot of hitpoints. It's such an OP card

10 Golem

Definitely not the most effective, but also my favorite. I use Golem, Princess, Wizard, Goblins, Spear Goblins, Fireball, and the pump.

In my opinion Golem SUUCKS, but I keep getting golem from chests, I could almost get it to level 3 but I never want a level 3 golem

I've never lost against a golem and iv played them 7 times. It doesn't deserve to be 7th - TheHabsFan

The Contenders

11 Dark Prince

The dark prince is good with the prince because if troops like skeleton army's come in the dark prince will destroy

Much mor ersatz or than the price, and is cheaper. Offers less performance though.

Dark prince is usually pretty bad but it can be used quite well - TheHabsFan

12 Skeleton Army

This army great can attack prince,giants,cannons,and giant skeletons

13 Graveyard

I love this card. This can be a card to attack and defend. Can easily take out a tower.

14 Knight

The knight is an extremely cheap tank. For 3 elixir it can destroy any splash damage card

This is a horrible card so easy to counter. It should be in the top ten worst cards - TheHabsFan

15 Sparky

No doubt that sparky and princess are the most effective cards. The only easy way to destroy the Sparky is using Minion Horde. Prince is just good for arena 1,2,3,4 and every good player knows that X-Bow is almost the "Worst" card in the game. (Skeletons are even more useful)

Sparky sucks. Zap is a simple easy too recharge his charge, and you can surround sparky with skeletons, as it will need to use 3 shots (the Sparky's radius is not that large) a simple Goblins Zap, Mini PEKKA zap, Zap Megaminion can all take this card out. Sparky is the world legendary. Ice Wiz and Miner are the best, in terms of usability.

Sparky is legendary and does a lot of damage. - DynamicDuo

Just because its op does not mean it's the best card in the game. I think it should have a big balance change. and stop calling everyone a noob damnit, you're making yourself look like your 5. To TheHabsFan

17 Princess

The best legendary the princess so good the prince so bad

18 The Log

No just no, the log is OP in the current meta everybody used ground hordes like skeleton armies and do you know what happens when you put down the log? I think you do. It is also a very versitile and cheap card because it can improve your deck for just 2 elixir - Lazo419

Should be in top 5 since it is in EVEry meta deck

Outclassed by Arrows, Fireball and Zap.

Seems pretty bad, but really useful. Very underrated. Also my first legy

19 Valkyrie

Should be number 1-5 on this list, so good

I once used a valkyrie to stop two pekkas and two ice wizards. (but they already had locked targets) It's quite good! - Oliveleaf
