When placing the Cards in the tier list, we considered their rarity, elixir cost, win and usage rate, as well as performance in combination with other Cards. Some of the Cards in the list can be placed in a different Tier, and it entirely depends on how players build their decks. Here are the best Cards in Clash Royale, ranked.

Best Troops in Clash Royale

Three Musketeers

Despite their high Elixir cost, the Three Musketeers remain to be the best troop in Clash Royale, and they can be paired well with the Royal Ghost, Elixir Collector, and Golden Knight.

Golden Knight

The Golden Knight is unquestionably the best Champion Card in the game. Although it has medium speed and only targets ground units, players can effectively pair the Golden Knight with the Tornado Spell, Skeletons, and Magic Archer.

Best Buildings in Clash Royale

Elixir Collector

While the Elixir Collector may not appear in your opening hand, it is the best Building Card to have in any deck. It can be paired well with low-Elixir cost Cards like Heal Spirit, Mirror, and Bomber.


The Mortar is vulnerable to close-range attacks but stands tall in every aspect of long-ranged combat. You can pair it with The Log, Skeleton Army, Archers, and even the Fireball to dish out devastating damage to opponents.

Best Spells in Clash Royale

Tornado Spell

The Tornado Spell is by far the best Spell to use in Clash Royale. It has a radius of 5.5, and can completely alter the course of any fight. You can pair it effectively with the Mirror, Golden Knight, Electro Giants, Skeletons, and Royal Ghost.

Lightning Spell

The Lightning Spell is the second-best Spell Card, simply because of its high Elixir cost. This Spell can damage up to three enemy troops or buildings in a specific area. The Lightning Spell is usually best paired with Golden Knight, Baby Dragon, Mirror, and Tornado Spell.
