Here are the best Skeleton decks and statgies for Clash Royale Larry and his buddies are free and can be used without their summoner! Never underestimate what they can do in your deck, Chief!


The Skeletons card is obtainable in Bone Pit - Arena 2. This card summons 3 single target, melee Skeletons with very low HP. Just like the Goblins, it is a low-cost card and can damage pretty well when it levels up.

As these Skellies are easily Zapped, Arrowed down, or countered, they are not used for offense. They are great in supporting though. They can put a stop to any counter cards facing a tank. Players can also use it to distract the Inferno Tower and probably bring it down.

On defense, players can use the Skeletons to lure units in the middle of the arena to activate both tower archers. It can even counter the Wizard if he is already distracted. Skeletons is the card of choice against single target units.


New Skeletons Decks:

The Skeletons are a great addition to any kind of decks. It can be a Cycle, Zap Bait, or even heavy decks with the Golem or P.E.K.K.A. They can be used as a cycle card or a way to chip damage. For just 1 elixirs, they are truly worth more. Check out the newest decks with Larry and the crew.
