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

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

The baby dragon is a great card, I mean what can counter it?

Baby Drag is useless in arena 4 and above..

Use it behind a giant and add some weaker troops and supply them with a rage spell and that GG

3 Zap

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

4 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

5 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

Golem x bomber x balloon is so fking op - Yatagarasu

6 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

7 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 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.

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

This Cards Is the most OP card in the game!

10 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

The Newcomers

? The Executioner

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)

The new executioner card is a little over powered, which is why it is the best card. it can attack both land and air, it has a double attack, and has an attack like the valkyries but it throws the axe and comes back and does more damage. It can even take out minion horde with one throw.


The Contenders

11 The Log

I have it, it's very useful. My second legendary. Does lots of damage and has a great range for a card that is 2 elixir. - Powerfultekin

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.

14 Mini P.E.K.K.A

I think most of the people here are on crack, this card is beast. 10X better than the PEKKA. I'm in legendary arena with this card, so anyone that is not in legendary arena has no room to speak. If you want to get to legendary arena than here's my deck: Ice Wizard, Prince, Hog Rider, Mini PEKKA, Rage, Arrows, Musketeer, & Skeleton Army. You have to know what your doing in order to use this deck, don't just place the skeleton army at random points or don't put a Mini PEKKA on the other side of the field when you know there's a prince or giant skeleton on the opposite side (That's just common sense.), don't place the Rage on random troops or on low-health troops, don't throw arrows at Princesses, use them on Minion Hordes, etc.

This should be in the top tens because 1. It can take down anything except skeleton army 2. It is more active than a pekka and 3. It does loads of damage

I guess this is good with arena 5 and under

15 Graveyard

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

16 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

17 Skeleton Army

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

18 Ice Spirit
19 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.

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