Skeleton Barrel Overview:

The Skeleton Barrel is a common card that costs 3 elixirs to deploy. It is unlockable in Arena 6 - Builder's Workshop. The card works like the Battle Ram and its Barbarians. It targets buildings initially and then pops into 8 Skeletons. Its flying speed is similar to the Balloon with an HP comparable to the Ice Wizard.

Skeleton Barrel on Offense:

The Skeleton Barrel is your cheap alternative to the Balloon. Although it doesn't give the same punching power (tourney standards: Balloon = 798 DMG with 266 DPS, Skeleton Barrel = total of 536 DMG from all 8 Skellies), it flies as fast as the Balloon. As long as there is a tanker, like a Miner or Hog Rider, the Skele Barrel can do well on offense. It is popular with Spell Bait Decks, Hog Rider, Miner, and even beatdown.

Skeleton Barrel on Defense:

The Skeleton Barrel is highly useful on defense. It can cripple the Inferno Tower and other defense buildings guarding the opponent's base. They can also bait out the enemy's spells which is perfect for Spell Bait Decks. X-Bows and Mortars, especially Mortar will instantly crumble from the might of the 8 skellies.

The Skeleton Barrel is a great addition to the Zap Bait / Log Bait decks. It can also add quite a boost to beat down decks as it can target the usual buildings that can pull them away.
