Clash Royale Card Power Rankings (April 20th)

Apologies to all our readers for being one day late again with our Card Power Rankings!  I’ll simply note that yesterday happened to be 420 and our productivity may or may not have been affected on that particular date… anyway, on with the rankings!

Clash Royale Card Power Rankings (April 20th)

Rank Card Last Week’s Rank
1 (tied) Arrows  Arrows 1 Looks like the top decks have not changed very much since last week.  Arrows retain its #1 spot in the rankings..
1 (tied) Elixir Collector  elixir_collector 2 … along with Elixir Collector.  With close to 80% of all top players using the pump, it makes you wonder whether this card requires any balance changes moving forward.
3 Princess  PrincessCard 3 Same spot for Princess this week.  Ironic that Princess shoots out arrows, but can also be countered by Arrows.
3 (tied) Freeze download 4 (tied) Freeze is one of those cards that favor high ranked players, because the Freeze duration is a lot longer at higher levels, and the troops can hit a lot harder while everything else is frozen.  Keep this in mind before you start playing Freeze and expect to see the same results.
5 (tied) Dark Prince DarkPrinceCard 6 (tied) Molt noted in his tweet yesterday that almost every deck he sees are Double Prince/P.E.K.K.A.  The Power Rankings reflect that with both Dark Prince…
5 (tied) P.E.K.K.A  PEKKACard 8 … and P.E.K.K.A for the #5 spot.  Random fact: Pekka happens to also be the name of my new puppy.  We do not know if it’s a boy or a girl.
7 Minion Horde  clashroyale-icons-minionhorde 4 (tied) The pesky little fliers drop down slightly in this week’s rankings.
8 Prince  prince 6 (tied) The third card in the Double Prince/P.E.K.K.A combo.  Interesting fact: a deck consisting of the top 8 cards this week would actually make a very decent deck!
9 Cannon  CannonCard 9 (tied) The cheap defense building finds itself at the same spot in this week’s rankings.
10 Spear Goblins  clashroyale-icons-speargoblins


NEW A strange dip in usage for Goblins this week, but its cousins with the spears find themselves back in the #10 spot this week.

      Rankings are based on the cards used by the Top 30 players of the week. Looks like many top players have opted to play Dark Prince nowadays.
