Best Clash Royale Cards

CPT.NERDO

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

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. - RisingMoon

I don't know why this is number 1. a lot of cards can take him out. My mini account recks the Prince as I have a level 10.5 main and know how to counter almost everything - CheesyNachos

This card is really bad and in arenas 7 and up, no one even looks at the card when they are building new decks. What is this, a joke website?

Prince is trash. Too easy to get countered. In my arena, Jungle arena I haven't played anybody with prince.

2 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

This card is pretty good, especially if you can use it right. - SagieBoi

The most versatile card in the game. Useful anywhere. - c3230

Baby dragon is OK. I'm in arena 2 so I use it a lot, but 1 of my friends thinks it's crap...

3 Hog Rider

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

Awesome, many battles at the last second I put hog rider. And I win the game

I like the hog rider because its versatile

Hog rider is Op should be a epic, way better than prince

4 Electro Wizard

So annoying against sparky and inferno dragon and he stops EVERYTHING he's even becoming more annoying than elite barbs he needs a nerf - stoner69

His attack are zaps so it stops everything wish I had it - MChkflaguard_Yt

BRUH, HE STOPS EVERYTHING! It's so annoying when your making a big rider push and he just stops it in its tracks. This is by far the best defensive card and is also good for attacking.

Time to electrify!

5 Skeleton Army

Good in defense, but unreliable as can be killed in one zap or log - Oliveleaf

Best at defense

Skeleton Army's are great! They are good against Prince, Mini P.E.K.K.A, Giants, X-Bows and Giant Skeletons. - micahisthebest

Most elixir efficient. Can take down two P.E.K.K.A.'s that's a positive 11-elixir exchange. This alone makes it the best card. It handles all pushes but pushes with splash damage. Best card ever EXTREMELY UNDERRATED and is the most used card ever at 44% of all decks, beating wizard
by 7%.

6 Zap

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.

Zap is Just OP you can't be good in clash Royale if you don't use zap

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

Awesome too bad it was nerfed

7 The Executioner

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 is OP it is like an air bowler or mix of bowler and wizard together. Bowler and wizard are great,so executioner is OP ( I am arena 10 so I have experience)

This would be #1 if all those op glitches were still present in this card.

Its #1 no #6 in my opinion

8 Golem

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.

Once it is level 4 and up, it's fantastic to use (In my opinion) - CheesyNachos

Golem is good and it kills skeleton army easily with their golemites

9 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

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?

The problem with this card is the fact it can't attack minion horde. - RisingMoon

OOPP.
great in builder workshop to jungle arena

10 X-Bow

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

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

It used to be OP, but after the update, it just sucked. - RisingMoon

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

Well pretty much if you know what your doing or your opponent is too slow or has no elixir the xbow is quite hard to deal with. - SagieBoi

The Contenders

11 Inferno Dragon

Tanks and crown towers die instantly with this. - MChkflaguard_Yt

What the heck it does so much damage

I have one, it is so overpowered!

Awesome card! Wish I had it!

It used to be the rarest legendary card in the game but it is easier to get it after the june 2017 update. - MChkflaguard_Yt

12 Elite Barbarians

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 - stoner69

Elite barbs are not a card you want to leave alone, however I know a few cards that counters them quite well.

1: Valkrie: Make sure they are in RANGE of the archer tower/s so they can chip them down, her spin attack will most likely kill them or severly wound them to the point of being a one shot.

2: Prince: Same with valkrie, MAKE SURE THEY ARE IN RANGE OF THE ARCHER TOWER/S

3: Skel army: If you know your opponent already used their zap/log skel army will destroy elite barbs.

4: Barbarians: Yeah ikr? these 4 guys can actually take elite barbs out haha

5: Bowler: Kinda obvious but his high health and cheap ish cost and his ability to knock both elite barbs back pretty much spells death for them.

6: Tornado + Fireball: It costs 7 elixir but it can work at making them severly weak.

i'm sure there are more but atm that's all I got. - SagieBoi

13 Balloon

The balloon is the ultimate comeback card, anyone who says otherwise can eat my socks.

Extremely OP they do loads of damage in a hit once I take out a tower in 30 sec because of this! - MChkflaguard_Yt

Its pretty good but you can't just leave it alone, I'd recommend zap or arrows to help defend it. There is also the lavaloon combo or the giant+Loon combo (Is that a thing? ) But leaving it alone is incredibly risky. - SagieBoi

Balloon + Lava Hound = Win - RisingMoon

14 Ice Wizard

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.

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. - SagieBoi

Not good defense. Two hits a level 3 skeleton army at level one. Better for slowing stuff in an offensive push - Yatagarasu

This card should be at least in the top 10, it is one of the best legendaries used for defense. Why is it so far back on this list? Other cards like X-bow and prince should be around the 20s on the list.

15 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

You can use the witch to help you defend your opponent's attack, and try to keep the witch alive after the witch stops your opponent's attack, stick a giant in front of her. the skeletons she summons do a lot of damage actually.

for example: your opponent deploys a prince and barbarians, you can deploy a bomber and a witch to kill those troops, the bomber and the witch would remain alive ( with full health) when played properly so you can stick a giant in front of her, your opponent wont have much elixir to defend because he/she just wasted 10 elixir with the barbarians and the prince

16 Princess

The best legendary the princess so good the prince so bad

Range is amazing- so much value!

Ultimate clash royalee troop. Good for attack, defense and offense

Princess is amazing, for 3 elixir she can anihilate minions+hordes, skel army, take out a building from YOUR side of the arena, chip down troops supporting a tanky troop, can usually damage the crown tower very well, excellent bait for log or arrows (Bonus points if they miss them or if the arrows aren't a high enough level :D), can be a very useful support for pushing tanky troops or hog riders and many more. I'm nearly on arena 10 with her in my deck and have been using her since arena 7. She is so amazing.

17 P.E.K.K.A.

Pekka is a great card, its dangerous if left alone, is good on defense agaisnt hogs, golems, princes, wizards and can be your entire focus in a deck. However be careful and don't spawn her if you can't support her. Its almost as bad as fireballing a king tower instantly. - SagieBoi

Pekka is WAY better than Mini Pekka. Although it does cost more elixir. - micahisthebest

When used with wizard and zap and loon it is so op and unstoppable

I got into the leagues with this card

18 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.

Destruction everywhere with sparky on the field. It's easy to counter but not everyone with have a counter for it. Love using sparky.

I have it and use it, but it is a huge risk with the 6 elixir cost. - DynamicDuo

19 Mega Minion

Weakness? Electro wizard and any other air troop attackers. - Rayman56

Mega Minion Is the best High damage- low elixir card. I use it. It has a lot of health making it great for countering tanks like golem and RG. If you are to counter it only 2 cards stop the mega minion with a positive elixire trade, bats and skeletons. but if you don't counter it, it does 200 issh damage to the tower. Mega minion is the best defense card

Awesome card I loveee it its used in

almost all my deck and is great in my lava hound deck!

20 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.

I think Giant is the best card once you get to a higher level and upgrade it because it can do so much damage meanwhile it's almost impossible to kill because of its HP. Sometimes I do a big push and there killing all of my guys and suddenly I win and there tower is down. I think how did I win and then see the giant still alive punching the tower.

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

Still needs a nerf
