Clash Royale Card Power Rankings (June 23rd)

Screen-Shot-2016-04-06-at-10.09.24-PM-1

After being on hiatus for a week (sorry everyone!), the Card Power Rankings is back this week with a bang!  As expected, another round of big balance changes means a lot of deck changes, and different usage rates of cards from the games’ top players.  Here are this week’s top 10 cards:

Clash Royale Card Power Rankings (June 23rd)

Rank Card Last Week’s Rank
1 Elixir Collector  elixir_collector 2 (tied) After 2 rounds of nerfs, the Pump was finally left alone in the latest round of balance changes, and now sits atop the top spot in the Card Power Rankings.
2 Zap  zap 1 While Zap wasn’t nerfed, it’s partner-in-crime Hog Rider was (note: Hog Rider is out of the rankings this week).  Still, the 2-elixir spell’s 1 second “shock” is a great combo with just about any other card.
3 Princess  PrincessCard 9 You really can’t go wrong with having Princess in your deck; as top players are trying to adjust to the new meta, many have opted to put Princess back in their decks.
4 (tied) Cannon  CannonCard 2 (tied) Once again, the Clash Royale team has tried to encourage players to use less Cannon and more Tesla, but from what we can see their efforts have fallen short again: Tesla is the 4th most used card by top players this week, while only 1 of the top 30 players have tried going back to Tesla!
4 (tied) Mini P.E.K.K.A  mini_PEKKA 6 (tied) A suggestion was flying around on Reddit that Tesla should do additional damage on P.E.K.K.A and Mini P.E.K.K.A because they are wearing metal armor; given Mini P.E.K.K.A’s popularity nowadays, maybe that isn’t such a bad idea!
6 Skeletons  skeletons 8 Despite the fact that we are now down to 3 Skeletons (RIP Larry), Skeletons the card actually moved up in this week’s rankings!  Guess nothing beats a one-cost card for fast cycle decks!
7 (tied) Poison  PoisonCard 6 (tied) Poison is becoming increasingly popular in fast cycle decks.
7 (tied) Minions  minions 8 The annoying little flyers are still as effective as ever in dealing with the likes of Barbs/Royal Giants/Hog Riders/Mini P.E.K.K.A/Valk/etc.
9 Miner  MinerCard NEW And another Legendary card finally makes its debut on the rankings!  Be sure to check out guest writer Cory’s Miner Strategy Guide to learn more about how to play with or against the Miner!
10 Spear Goblins  T11 NEW And they’re finally back!  Perhaps seeing the need to deal with more Minions, many top players are opting to play Spear Goblins over Goblins again.
