The Barbarian Barrel is the second spell and epic card released in Arena 10 - Hog Mountain. It acts like The Log but pops out a single Barbarian towards the end of its roll.

The Barb Barrel has the same width damage as The Log but its range can not reach the Princess towers before it bursts to a Barbarian. Since this is only an Epic Spell card, it can not knock back the big boys such as the Giant, Bowler, Prince, etc.

It is an Epic card and not a Legendary card so it is easier to get in chests. Just like The Log it can effectively crush ground swarms. It can also have the ability to tank.

Since the Barbarian Barrel is a spell card, it may be tough to counter it but if used as a tank, you can use the following:

  • Ice Spirit - If the opponent really tries to use the Barb Barrel as a tank, you can easily use the Ice Spirit or the Skeletons to lure him in the middle of your base.

Decks that may counter the Barbarian Barrel:

Inferno Hog L-Jack Cycle Deck for Arena 8 to 12 No Legendary Giant Bowler Ladder Deck for Arena 8 to 12

No Legendary Giant Prince Deck for Arena 8 to 12 Valkyrie Bait Deck for Arena 8 Tournaments

As of this writing, the Barbarian Barrel still has that Crown Tower Damage in its profile even though it doesn't reach the Princess and King Towers. With his addition in the game, you may see a lot of bridge spam, bait decks, and even control decks in the meta. Even with the single Barb, he can still support units behind him.
