Clash Royale Card Power Rankings (Feb. 23rd)

Clash Royale icon

Another Tuesday, another edition of our weekly Clash Royale Card Power Ranking!  For the first time since the game’s launch, it seems the game has finally found its balance, with no single card being an essential in each deck.  With all the different mixes in decks that are now being played, which cards will stand out?

Clash Royale Card Power Rankings (Feb. 22nd)

Rank Card Last Week’s Rank
1 (tied) Hog Rider  clashroyale-icons-hogrider 1 Hog Rider hangs on to its #1 spot this week, but has to share the spotlight with another card.  While almost every top player played Hog Rider last week, only 13 out of 20 are playing it this week – the lowest number we’ve seen for a number 1 card.
1 (tied) Baby Dragon  clashroyale-icons-babydragon 2 With no particular cards being overpowering, it make sense that the cost-efficient and versatile Baby Dragon is being played by most top players.
3 (tied) Spear Goblin  clashroyale-icons-speargoblins 3 Looks like the Skeleton buffs didn’t affect Spear Goblins as much as anticipated.  The cheap trio retains its 3rd spot this week.
3 (tied) Tesla  tesla NEW With Inferno Tower taking a further nerf, Tesla has now become the go-to defense tower for most decks.
5 Goblins  goblins 8 (tied) Who needs spears when you have knives? Once a card that was hardly played, the cheap and fast Goblins are now being played more as both a last line of defense and a sneak attack pairing option.
6 (tied) Arrows  Arrows NEW And with so many Goblins in play, it makes sense for players to pack their decks with Arrows.
6 (tied) Mirror  mirror 4 Dropping a little in popularity this week, Mirror remains a popular card for players that need that element of surprise in their decks.
8 (tied)  Prince  prince NEW The mighty Prince finally makes its way into the Card Power Rankings!  Prince has found its way into many decks for both its blistering offense and ability to take out Teslas.
8 (tied) Zap  zap NEW Again, with so many Goblins in play, Zap is a great way to take out small troops and cheap enough to allow you to rotate your cards faster.
10 (tied) Barbarians  clashroyale-icons-barbarian 5 (tied) The iconic Barbarians are still hanging around the Power Rankings this week, this time at the no. 10 spot though.
10 (tied) Lightning

 

 Lightning NEW Not as powerful against towers anymore, but still pretty effective at blasting troops and towers (especially Elixir Collectors).
