Ice Wizard Overview:

The Ice Wizard, which can be unlocked in Clash Royale's Arena 5 can counter almost any troop if supported properly. However, he is also highly susceptible to multiple hits that can take him out in no time.



The Ice Wizard is strong against melee troops and even MOBs. His attacks can slow down enemies. He also deals moderate area damage. The Ice Wizard is mostly used as support to tanks like the Pekka, the Prince, and Golem. While the damage he deals is moderate, his ability to slow down enemies makes him a valuable member of any deck.

This legendary ice master that hails from the north will absolutely send chills down to your spines!

Popular ice Wizard Decks:

If the enemy exhausts his elixir countering your Ice Wizard and P.E.K.K.A, proceed to push troops on the opposite lane.

The Giant Skeleton Deck ensures that he'll bring the opponents down with him with certainty. In the Giant Skeleton Deck, the Ice Wizard is used to support your main tanks in pushing. In this way, all enemy troops' attacks and movements will be slowed. Not to mention that because of that, your enemy attacks will look faster.

How to counter the Ice Wizard:


Above are the units in Clash Royale that can counter the Ice Wizard.

  • PrincessShe has the longest range of all the troops in Clash Royale. She can take out the Ice Wizard from a very far distance. She can be obtained in Arena 7.
  • MusketeerHer attacks are also long ranged and she has high DPS. She can take out Ice Wizards easily. Just drop her very far.
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A, Goblins, Barbarians, and KnightIf placed behind or near the Ice Wizard, they can take him out even if their attack speed has slowed.
  • Baby DragonTanky aerial troop. This Baby Dragon deals splash damage from the sky. This gives them the ability to take out the Ice Wizard along with other enemy troops.
  • ArrowsCan clear out MOBs and a high-level one can decrease the Ice Wizard's HP dramatically.

Decks that can counter the Ice Wizard:

For some Clash Royale Players, strength in numbers is definitely the name of the game. Using a Barbarian deck can help you achieve that. While the opponent is busy on the Giant Skeleton, drop the Barbarians in such a way that they will surround the Ice Wizard. There's no way that the Ice Wizard can come out surviving this in stand-alone skirmishes.

The Mini Pekka certainly has a place in Arena 4. With the right support troops, you don't need to say goodbye to this card especially if you have leveled him enough to destroy opponents at Arena 3. One of the purest ways to counter the Ice Wizard is to place a unit behind him. With a Mini Pekka, the Ice Wizard will be gone in 2 - 3 hits. Just make sure that you have enough support for the Mini Pekka to continue the push.

Been wondering about how to effectively use your Golem earlier in lower Arenas? Here is a deck we found that you can try to use, Chief! If you are going to bet your push on the mighty Golem, then you have to support him with your best troops. The Ice Wizard provides support by slowing down enemies. In this way, your support units can take care of these enemy troops immediately.

Here is a super duo of the Hog Rider and Freeze that will help you climb up the Clash Royale ladder to success!

If you still don't know, Hog Freeze is one of the most popular strategies right now. While the Ice Wizard slows down opponents, the Freeze Spell completely stops the enemies from moving. In this way, your troops, like the Hog, can destroy a tower unopposed.


The Ice Wizard is an incredible support unit. With that, his glaring flaw is his moderate HP. If you see an Ice Wizard behind a push, prioritize dealing with him first. Or else, that push will be successful and you will lose a tower.

  • Well since the Ice Wizard is a legendary card, chances of you getting it is pretty slim. But Supercell and the ClashRoyale team did promise a better drop rate for legendaries this incoming update. You can check out the article here:! -- 15:04, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
