Skeletons Pros and Cons


  • Great distraction tool against high hit points units such as P.E.K.K.A or Prince, especially effective against Sparky.
  • Can deal considerable damage to enemy’s Tank if being left alone.
  • Because of its very cheap elixir cost, we can deploy this card to cycle through the deck to the desired card faster.


  • Very fragile, can be killed instantly by anything. Splash damage units can eliminate 3 Skeletons in one shot.
  • Only effective on defense.

Skeletons Advanced Tips

Use the Split defense technique to distract enemy’s threats for longer time and allow our defensive troops to finish them off.

A single Skeletons card can completely counter Sparky if being placed properly. You need to drop it right on the top of Sparky to make it spread the 3 Skeletons around Sparky, thus she cannot kill all of them in one shot. The remaining Skeletons plus Arena Tower can eliminate Sparky easily then. Watch the video below to have a clearer overview on this technique! hopes you enjoy exploring the Skeletons card.
