Other Details A spilt bottle of Rage turned an innocent tree trunk into 'The Log'. Now, it seeks revenge by crushing anything in its path!

The Log Overview:

The Log is a legendary card that can be obtained from the Builder's Workshop. It will crush anything on its path. If not, atleast it can push them away and deal some damage.

Balance Updates:

The Log on Offense and Defense:

The Log crushes anything on its path. It will push away incoming troops such as Barbarians and other units aside. This will be a great counter against spammers and other low HP troops since it has spikes and rolls towards the enemy units.

The Log has a certain number of seconds before it dies. If you deploy the log at the very edge of your side of the river, it can reach the opponent's crown tower. Deploying it one space before the river will not let it reach the tower.

The Log can push back many Clash Royale units such as Barbarians and the Knight. It cannot, however, push back bulky troops like the Giant. It is a good positive elixir trade to the Princess. If the opponent dishes out a Skeleton Army, the Log can wipe them off immediately. No more using Zap for them!

How to counter the Executioner:

Since this is a spell card, the great counter against this is timing and luring. Lure the Log spell first before deploy a lot of low HP troops before dropping them.

Never counter the Log with other Spells, because IT IS ALSO a Spell Card. From the video by excellent YouTuber Ash below, you can see how the Zap and Fireball can not stop it.

The Log is best paired with ff. cards:

These are the cards that work best with the Log. You will notice that the cards below are high single-target DPS units that are usually countered with swarms. Time the Log's deployment correctly to make sure you free the units below from them.
