guards.png Overview
Skeletons are here to stay and this time, the Clash Royale Guards are equipped with shields! Since they have that protection in front, they won't be killed that easy. This is an epic card with 3 elixirs probably because they come in threes! The Guards Card is unlockable from the Royal Arena - Arena 7.

Strength:

Due to their shield, they are perfect against an incoming Dark Prince! Supercell probably created them for this specific counter and gain you an elixir advantage.

Since the Double Prince push are becoming too popular, here's the card to even the playing field. This will create new strategies and decks!

Weakness:

This troop comes in threes. Like the Barbarians, the weakness of this group of shielded Skeletons are AoE units such as Bombers, Magicians, Bomb Towers. [[Firebal]l doesn't work on them since it will just take out their shields and they'll continue walking. You can deploy a Musketeer to get rid of AoE troops.

How to Counter:

The best counter card against them will be the Wizard! Due to his heavy AoE damage, he can take them down in a snap. But if your opponent whipped out a Wizard, you can drop your Guards on top of him and he'll be dead before he casts another spell.

Another counter troop will be the Bomber. AoE troops are definitely their nightmare along with other group troops such as Barbarians. Make sure to not leave them alone, partner them with ranged troops or shield them with a tanker to make sure they can cross the bridge safely.

Overall:

With just three elixirs, the Clash Royale Guards are great against countering big heavy troops such as the Dark Prince, Prince, and Mini P.E.K.K.A. They might outshine the Barbarians on being the most used defense card there is!
