The Lightning spell card targets three Towers or Troops with the highest hitpoints within its AoE (Area of Effect). It can be obtained from Arena 1 (the Goblin Stadium). It costs 6 Elixirs to deploy, which can be quite high if it can only deal 3 strikes. However, it is a useful card for dealing with troops that have high hitpoints. Many players also use it as a finishing move.
Known for its versatility, the Lightning card is great for weakening tanks such as the Giant and the Baby Dragon. It is also used to deal final blow to the Crown Towers. It is best used against the Witch, the Prince, and the Mini P.E.K.K.A. This is because of the Lightning's ability to target troops with the most HP.
The Lightning's biggest flaw is its high elixir cost. A high elixir cost might mean that the player may not be able to deploy it on the time when it is most needed. Because of this, some players exchange the Lightning for the Zap spell, which damages all object within its radius.

How To Counter The Lightning:
The Lightning is a deadly card to players whose deck are focused on low HP units like the Witch or the Mini Pekka. Once the player realizes that the opponent has a Lightning card, it is important to not leave the Witch or the Mini Pekka without being aided by higher HP troops. In this way, the spell will target these higher HP troops instead.
The Lightning is a very good card despite its high elixir cost. Knowing when to use it will spell the difference between the player's victory or defeat.
