The Rascals is the second common card available in Arena 9 - Jungle Arena. It is composed of three units: the Rascal Boy with almost the same HP as a Bowler and two Rascal Girls behind him with low HP.

It is a 5-elixir common card that you can use on defense as the Rascal Boy is tanky enough to shield his sisters that can deal air and ground damage. The trio is also good on defense as players can use the Boy as a tanker for their Goblin Gang etc.

This 5-elixir common card has its own tanker and support. If left alone, this trio can deal a lot of damage to a tower. Since the two girls have pretty low HP, you can also use it to bait out spells. The Rascal boy has high enough HP to tank for units like the Goblin Barrel, Skeleton Barrel, and even the Graveyard.

How to Counter the Rascals:

3 Elixir Counters:

Bomber Skeleton Army Barbarian Barrel Royal Ghost

  • Bomber - The Bomber has the ability to completely obliterate the girls in his first bomb and a couple more for the boy.
  • Skeleton Army - The SkArmy will swarm the trio in no time.
  • Barbarian Barrel - With its ability like The Log, the Barb Barrel can eliminate the girls and the lone Barb can take care of the Rascal boy.
  • Royal Ghost - Place him near the girls so he can one shot them. He will then take care of the Rascal Boy and then continue with your push.

4 Elixir Counters:

Valkyrie Mini P.E.K.K.A Electro Wizard LumberJack

  • Valkyrie - Plant her between the boy and the girls and her spinning move will take care of them.
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A - Place the Mini P.E.K.K.A behind the Rascal Boy so she can target the Rascal Girls and get rid of them in one swing each.
  • Electro Wizard - With his initial spawn damage, he can cut the Rascal Girls' HP in half. With his attack per hand, he can finish them both right away. After dealing with the girls, he can freely target the Rascal boy.
  • LumberJack - Same as the Mini P.E.K.K.A, place him behind the Rascal Boy so he can target the girls. He can swing his ax fast and get rid of the girls and the boy.

5 Elixir Counters and 2 Elixir Counter:

  • Bowler - Put him in front of the trio. His boulders can knock back the Rascal Boy and kill the girls behind.
  • Executioner - Same as the Bowler, place him in front of the trio. His ax can reach the girls in one sweep and a couple more for the boy.
  • Ice Golem - Use him like how you would kite the P.E.K.K.A. The trio will follow the Ice Golem and the tower archers will do the rest.

Decks that may Counter the Rascals:

The Rascals are pretty versatile for both offense and defense. As a common card, it also has a lot of counters as long as you have a splash damage unit or a high DPS unit such as the Mini P.E.K.K.A. The trio wouldn't be a problem as long as you target the girls first as the Rascal Boy's DPS is only equal to a single stab Goblin.
