Here are some of the ways you can counter the LumberJack in Clash Royale!

Overview:

LumberJack is a new legendary card attainable at the new Arena 8, the Frozen Peak. It is a unit with quite a bit of HP and huge damage like the Prince. However, once it dies, it drops a Rage spell, which will make the remaining allied troops attack and move faster. Lumberjack is a single-target unit which makes it vulnerable to luring and distractions.

LumberJack Card Profile:

LumberJack Strengths: =

Lumberjack deals huge amount of damage on a single target. Once it gets to your crown tower, it will chunk damage in a hurry. Having a decent amount of hit points and leaving a bottle of rage once killed, it will be pretty tricky to counter this legendary card.

This legendary card is pretty flexible because of the rage spell it leaves when it dies. Like the Rage spell, it is compatible with any kinds of attacking cards; you can use this card with various attack combinations. It can play well with your swarm cards, or if you prefer, tanks like Giants, you can too!

How to Counter the LumberJack:

The most menacing effect of Lumberjack is the rage spell once it's killed. However, since it is a single target unit, you can easily distract it by using Spear Goblins, Goblins, Skeletons, or defensive structures like Canon. Just put a unit at the center when you are defending and it will be lured easily, forcing it to leave the rage spell on the "not so ideal spot".

Aside from being a single-target unit, Lumberjack also doesn't attack aerial units. Making it an easy target for Minions. Also, Lumberjack has pretty decent hit points. However, it's not that great, making it pretty vulnerable to a high damage unit like Mini P.E.K.K.A.

Just keep it mind that it will leave a rage spell once killed. This means there are usually support troops at his back.

Utilizing the rage spell effect once it dies gives you plenty of attack and defense options. It makes a great role card which prepares your attack or counter attack.
