The Magic Archer is available in Arena 11 - Electro Valley and above. He costs 4 elixirs and a Legendary rarity. With his 7 tile range, his range is slightly longer than the Dart Goblin that can do 6.5 but not longer than the Princess with her 9 tile range.

Another great ability of the Magic Archer is his piercing arrows. Think of it like the Executioner's Axe but faster and longer. He shoots fast and his projectile range is 11 tiles. If you're using him on offense, he can deal tower chip damage if there's an opponent directly in front of the crown tower.

One of the greatest strength of the Magic Archer is its ability to pierce through his opponents. He is a great troop to counter beatdown decks as his arrows can pierce the tanker together with its support. He also has a good range, better than the Dart Goblin but falls 2 tiles shorter than the Princess.

  • Bats - Before Magic Archer reach the last tile on the bridge, drop the Bats just before he locks on to your crown tower.
  • Ice Spirit - The Ice Spirit is a good positive elixir trade. For 1 elixir, it can deal death damage and freeze. This is enough time for your Tower Archers to finish the job.
  • Ice Golem - The Ice Golem can kite the Magic Archer. Aside from that, with the help from the Tornado this combo can activate the King Tower.
  • Knight - Knight can give you a positive elixir trade, just make sure you don't put him in line with your Crown Tower.

The Magic Archer may look intimidating but his HP is 100 lower than the E-Wiz. You can counter him easily as long as you have Fireball or any good ground and air unit. He is also a great beatdown push wrecker as he can pierce through the chunky tanker.
