How To Counter The Clone Spell:

Countering a Cloned Unit is easy due to its 1 HP count. Meaning, Splashers or Spells can quickly wipe copied units. These are some of the cards you might want to use against it:

Spells:

Spells are essential while dealing with cloned units. Though Zap is the only positive elixir spell in these cards, all spells can swiftly annihilate big threats. Also, these spells can deal with aerial and ground units making them viable at critical situations. The Log or Poison Spell can be helpful against ground troops if needed.

Personal Pick: Zap - Cheap and can reset the units' target/charged attack

Splashers:

Though a lot of splashers are available in the game, these are some of our top picks against cloned units. We recommend you to use a Splasher Unit if the Clone Spell is used to tank units (e.g Lava Hound, Golem). Players will likely use further units that will bring difficulty in your part. Though Spells can wipe out cloned units, expect cheeky players to support their main units with additional troops behind. Use any of these cards accordingly. 

Personal Pick: Ice Golem - Cheap and can surprisingly distract incoming units. Will slow original units as it kills the cloned ones.

Buildings:

Defensive buildings are also useful in countering Cloned Units. If you your enemy is pressuring you, let your building grab the troops’ attention. Make sure to have a great timing in dropping these kinds of cards to extend its ability. If possible, plant a building in the center of your base. This will activate your opposite crown tower making it easier to defend. Personal Pick: Tombstone - Cheap and can spawn Skeletons quick. This can be a distraction to any other incoming units.

Clone Spell Deck Strategies:

Overall:

Clone Spell is a great card for a buzzer beater game. It can do wonders, depending on how the user will use it. Using it might be hard at first, but knowing how to play it help you win trophies in the future. If you plan to use it for a long period, try to make a tricky deck where you can sneak and make a full extent strategy. 

If I will be asked, I will try to mix this card in a swarm/low average elixir deck. Overwhelming the opponent, especially in the last minute will destroy their own strategy if you play it cool and wisely.
