How to Counter the Bandit:

You can counter the Bandit by using cheap cards like the Skeletons and the Goblins. These cards are the best so far fo a positive elixir trade. Though the Bandit's dash damage is strong to take one of these units quick, her normal damage will need two strikes each to kill the others. You can also use the Archers or Spear Goblins in taking her out. Make sure to drop these troops in the center of your base for both towers' support.

One of the best spells to counter her is the Tornado Spell. If she is alone, dragging her to smash your King Tower is easy.

You can also take her out by using the Tombstone. This defensive building's spawned Skeletons will surely keep her busy in seconds.

If you are running a deck with the Ice Golem, using this monster will surely distract her. Guards will also be a good equal elixir trade counter for the Bandit.

Some other popular counters are the Skeleton Army, Goblin Gang and other spawner/medium-tier list units like the Mini P.E.K.K.A and the Knight. The Battle Ram will also be her problem once you used it. You can also cast the Zap Spell to reset its possible dash attack.

Overall:

The Bandit is a great support to almost all decks in the game today. If compared to the latest meta, her power is fairly suitable. Her sneaky attacks can wreck a tower down in the unexpected moments. She might be easy to counter, but playing her a lot will help you win more in the near future.
