Best Clash Royale Cards

The Top Ten

1 Prince

Prince defiantly is very good if you are playing a noob. But, otherwise not great

I disagree with this whole list, its like it was written by arena 4 players

Yes I have one so many games with him it took me from challenger 1 to Master 3

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

I'm in Arena 8, but I still use the prince. My prince is level 3, mostly because of an Epic Chest, but still. You can easily kill cheap troops by placing a log or using a Prince+Valkyrie combo.

2 Hog Rider

Great for log and skarmy bate and then use zap to clear skeleton and get few hits.

The legit best card in the game. Prince sucks Hog Rider should be first

Doesn't get distracted by other troops. Has won me several battles.

Best for counter attacking. It targets building and has good speed and devastating damage.

3 Electro Wizard

I think that this card should be first. Can you out of SO many situations.

ELECTRO WIZARD IS TRASH MAN! Why is he damn third?! He does a low amount of damage and hitpoints.

Very good if it is behind a tank as the inferno dragon and inferno tower are useless

If the stun was a tenth of a second more the electro wizard could beat almost all tanks in a 1v1

4 Baby Dragon

It can take out swarm troops, it is affective against tanks. It can be used with tanks. It is just so good and versatile. It will always be effective

Deals with swarmies so well, and can tank
great all around card

The prince is so bad. I use this in every deck. And if you use it with a tank card it's op

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

5 Inferno Dragon

It is so useful that you can kill most of the cards using 4 elixir. It is the best card ever!

A legendary I got from a magical chest as my first legendary, it used to be not as good, but now it's great. It can stop mega knights, golems, giants, and a lot of tanks. Plus, if it locks onto the tower, the tower is dead

What the heck it does so much damage

This is the best card for most decks, but it is not as good in higher arenas like arena 11 because everybody has a electro wizard.

6 P.E.K.K.A.

I think P.E.K.K.A. should be more like 9 elixir. Lives up to it's expectations

Great offense and defense card. Breaks up massive formations.

Potential to get value on the defense and play a very tricky offense on the roll. Place support cards and spells to rid of the counters and the pekka Blitz' past anything in its path

P.E.K.K.A is so much better than Mega Knight. The best counter against Mega Knight. They both cost 7 elixir

7 Zap

Cheap, and can weaken a decent sized group of troops, and resets x bow and troOps that target towers

This is good for skeleton armies, goblins level 6 or under, and minions level 5 or under. It's also good for towers with barely any damage. Beats the poison. It's got shocking results.

The zap is the zap of destruction and usefulness. It’s so good to take down a skeleton army. Costing only 2 elixir, a skeleton army will be zapped to death. It’s practical to slow down enemies and to take down a swarm of enemies. The zap is an amazing, overpowered and astonishing card in every arena and every level. Hail the Zap!

You like Electro-wizard huh? Well here is a spell for half the price and is a common so you can upgrade

8 Mega Knight

Can be dropped to do so much damage and the area splash is amazing

Should be #2 with the area damage and the enter arena ability! Best card behind Barbs

Use sparingly. The splash is a great counter to pushes, and he tends to make powerful pushes with a mini peka or a. Inferno dragon

He's really good at attacking skeleton armys due to area splash tho

9 Skeleton Army

best card ever legit can kill almost any thing except like Valkyrie and spells and splash damage troops

Ya know, takes out giant, royal giant, hog rider, prince, pekka, mini pekka, golem, all of that tanks and many more. Can do a lot of damge to a tower if left alone. Only weaknesses are spells and swarm troops.

Counters so many things & is good on the offense with other cards!

Easily can be countered, but still is the best card in the game

10 The Executioner

Overpowered damage now paired with torney
Also play mine craft and splatoon 2

I use the Executioner quite a lot and he is awesome. He may be five elixir but he makes up with the awesome axe that when used properly can be seriously OP.

Executioner is OP as it can hit a mega minion 1 tile behind a giant while a wizard couldn't. Plus he can't be killed by lightening.

The Executioner axe can also pass through the targets like magic archer, it can also back to his hand without losing an arm, which is also a miracle

The Contenders

11 Princess

OK so princess is great for swarms goblins minions no probably and she has insane range. Play it with golem and prince mega knight is dead

It is the only card that can take a tower without taking damage

This should be top 5 or even top 3 at least. Best legendary in the game. As it's range is insane and hardly anything can hit it without being out of its range (only spells can), and, if your Princess is old level 3 (new level 11), it won't be one shot by it's main counter, log, as it is too much of a level.

Range is amazing- so much value!

12 Balloon

Such a beast card. If paired with lumberjack and then you have zap or arrows it is practically unbeatable! Best to play a valkyrie behind king, then lumberjack behind that, then balloon behind that! (Then arrows.)

It's one of the things things pros use most. Just get lumber jack + balloon and you'd get a better force than hog rider + freeze + goblin barrel.

If you can use this well you can easily take out a tower instantly and win the game. I've done this many times. This is effortlessly my favorite card to attack buildings with.

Bro, the damage is insane, pair it with freeze and it will get at least one hit, which is like half a towers health.

13 The Log

I love log so much, such an exceptional card against hordes if enemies, and for 2 elixir, that's extremely good. It's also a good card to knock back enemies from hitting your tower. It also does a decent amount of damage for 2 elixir. Definitely deserves to at least be top 10.

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

Once joked to be a joke of a card, the buffs made it the meta. Skarmy, princess, goblin gang, goblin barrel, or badly damaged troops get wrecked by it. It can knock back ANYTHING. If it could hit air it would be insane but we all know that's why arrows exist, right?

Log is my third legendary and I have it level 2. I can destroy wizards and witches with it. OP

14 Mega Minion

Weakness? Electro wizard and any other air troop attackers.

I used to have the knight in my decks but when the mega minion came out I swap the knight for it now I use it in all my decks! This shouldn't be here. Very weak against baby dragon, minions etc. Main disadvantage: Less health!

This card sucks no one should like this card

15 Valkyrie

easily deals with ground swarmies and is good at helping tanks get to the tower

I've won so many games by counter attacking with Valkyrie. Most people counter her using air troops but I freeze them along with their tower and Valkyrie just walks right up and starts swinging.

Ohh...she is so beautiful & her voice is so AWESOME! She can attack anyone & has more heath. The only card which can finish skeleton army in a FLASH!

I have been using Valkyrie since Arena 1 and haven't swapped her out since. She is just too good.

16 Lumberjack

250 damage per second and it drops a rage definitely a top ten contender

This is an improved Elite barbarian.
It does a lot of damage to the tower if left alone, one-shot goblins a miracle that supercell didn't give him splash damage as well.
200 damage / 0.7 sec on level 9.
This can hardly be stopped with a mini-PEKKA.
And so a rage too, everything for just 4 elixir.

You guys are sad. The lumberjack can take down any other Melee troop in the game under 5 elixir AND drops a rage spell after death. A 6 elixir value easily, the lumberjack is hands down the best card in clash royale.

The lumberjack should be number 1 they should make the elite lumberjack but it would be to over powered

17 X-Bow

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

It also takes six seconds to start working once you placed it down - Thecyanryan

Once, this card unlocked and I added it to my deck. I placed it in a battle and as it started attacking the enemy launched a rocket & it's done!

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

Hard to use, but super effective at literally everything

18 Minion Horde

This card sucks! It can get arrowed so easily or beaten by a wizard.

like a air skeleton army

It is good

Really? It can instantly destroy balloon,lava hound,baby Dragon,inferno Dragon,inferno tower,tesla,many ground troops and rarely has counters,and can devastate a tower if let unattended.

19 Royal Giant

Royal giant is a good card because he can be under-leveled and still destroy level 13 towers.
He is also very cancerous!

Royal Giant with witch and electro wizard
My worst nightmare and my best friend

The best tank in the game tied with giant.

I diss the royal giant every day.

20 Golem

Really good for start of game to see your opps defenses as well as to get damage into a tower

I'm a Golem user in the 4800 trophy range who has played golem for 9 months straight as my main deck. This card is amazing but requires a deck that maxes out its potential. Best used in a deck that mainly defends then uses the the defense to counter push. It doesn't become a great card until at least lv 5. Recommended mini Pekka, poison, elixir pump, and zap as support cards.

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

This card is overrated, it has a very high cost and can be killed easily. Once I killed one using inferno dragon alone, counter pushed and I got a crown.

21 Witch

Witch is good against low health horde troops and low health sky troops. Awesome against inferno drag.

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.

22 Clone

VOTE FOR THIS CARD! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND FUN! Two of the same card is wonderful and incredible to have.

It is a good troll card

Clone is the best!


23 Elite Barbarians

Whoever put this on the list does not know their Clash Royale.

Yes elite barbs badly need a nerf these should be #1 not prince

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

Yes they need a nerf every other person you fight will have elite barbarians in your deck plus it so annoying if you don't have bowler theyll use these guys then put fire spirits behind them

24 Ice Wizard

Absolutely terrible in CLASH ROYALE, Incredibly Amazing in CLASH OF CLANS

What's the ice wizard doing so far back on this list! You see, the ice wizard is an extremely useful and devastating card when used correctly. The card can not only do splash damage to large amount of troops, it also freezes them to make them hit and move MUCH SLOWER! It can be used in defense and offense and is extremely useful. Although you should not be putting the card down before troops such as the Giant and Prince, put the higher damaging cards first and then put in a Ice wizard to destroy the pesky troops your opponent puts down in defense. Also the ice wizard only cost 3 ELIXER! I think that's a pretty good return for someone who is this low fdown on this list. Only thing which could be better would be damage. Overall, it's probably the best card in the game of how useful it is, along of how cheap it is, the card is way to underrated and should be much higher.

This card does splash damage and is extremely useful when I put it paired up with an Electro Wizard behind a Snow Golem. When you get to Electro Valley, it is even more useful, since your opponent has high leveled towers, for example, a level 6 X-Bow. Ice Wizard needs support, though, and Spells can kill it, since it has a moderately low health compared to other ranged troops in Electro Valley.

Damn Ice Wizard is now on number 14, it's a shame as this card is really excellent. I do wish however he did a little more damage but for the most part he is a great Legendary.
