The is the latest addition to the legendary collection in Clash Royale. It is a troop card that drops  spell in the area when it dies. Compared to similar that has an effect when killed ( and that splits into weaker troop, and that drops damaging bomb), the is the first troop that affects allies’ stats when killed. This card is simply unique, amazing and extremely fun to play.


The is a Legendary card that costs 4 and obtainable in Frozen Peak (Arena 8). He is a melee troop with strong damage and good hit points, similarly like a with stronger damage but less hp. He somehow resembles a Barbarian appearance but with a bottle of , cap, an axe and a yellow/golden beard. When you deploy him, you’ll see him drinking the spell.

According to his Clash Royale description, “He chops trees by day and hunts by night. His bottle of spills everywhere when he dies.” The and has a connection which obviously makes him the person responsible of creating it.

As for the  cost, is cost efficient. The spell card costs 3 elixirs but with 1 more you can have a  with good attack and hit points. Plus, a troop card is always useful to defend or distract enemy troops and to use as a front line of your attacks.

Advantages & Disadvantages


Cheap and cost efficient

Unique effect for a Troop

Works well with many combinations

Decent attack, speed and hit points

Can be used offensively and defensively


Requires a good set up

Not strong alone and must have good combinations

Doesn’t excel much anything except for his spell

Cannot target flying units

Can be kited and killed easily

Base on the pros and cons above, the is the type of troop who sacrifices himself for the benefit of his allies. His main purpose is to take all the damage and provide a powerful spell. If he is not placed well, the cost of the is wasted on the ineffective spell combo.

Always place your in front of your attacking line so that the troops behind will get the most out of the spell. The duration of the spell is long and has a lasting effect so it’s really a must to keep your other troops alive.

If defending, you can use the near your Tower and buildings for them to benefit from the spell.

The ’s strength relies with his allied troop. Although you can combine any troop with the , here are some of the good that really works well with the :


and is a good combination. Compared to other low hp troops like , Spear , and Archers, are flying troops and have slightly higher hp from getting one shot by the Zap Spell. Plus they have strong damage that benefits well with the Spell.


This is one of the strongest combo because the will take the damage from the Crown Tower while the goes behind. Once they get close to the Crown Tower, the death of the will create a spell in the area and the will destroy the tower effortlessly.


This is a cheap and better alternative than a + + Spell combination. As usual, the should always be in front while the reaches the Crown Tower. When the spell activates, you’ll see how fast the can take down the enemy tower.


The definitely love that spell because it also boosts her ability to spawn her to deal damage, plus her Skeleton will benefit from the speed increase! A great combination with this combo is by adding the  after the is killed so that the Tower won’t target the immediately.


This combination is one of the best I’ve seen. A with a spell is deadly, making the and combination a strong offensive push. Regardless if  or goes first, it is a pretty decent push. Either the will benefit from the Spell after the dies or the ’s attack can hit hard to the enemy tower while the takes the damage.

Special Mention:


At first, I’ve never thought that this combination will be good since the is a high risk card because of its high cost and known many counters (ie. , and Spell). But I’ve seen games where this is, I must say, hands down the strongest combination with the .

The and the can destroy the Crown Tower to King’s Tower real fast and get your three crowns. Especially when your opponent plays aggressive at first or doesn’t have a good counter the , he will be having a very hard time dealing with this combination.
