    Strategy

  • Works well with Mirror to double the elixir production. Hence, giving you an elixir advantage.
  • Can be used to protect a tower by being a bait for troops that target buildings, such as Hog Rider.
  • Place down straightaway if it’s in your starting hand.
  • Place behind towers to prevent troops from attacking it. Hence, maximizing the Elixir Collector.
  • Can be used to reshuffle your deck.
  • Complements well when you have 2-3 Elixir Collector deployed.
  • It is able to slow down the tempo of the battle.
  • Use the Rage spell to boost the production of Elixir!
  •  

    Strengths

  • Players are able to play cards faster than opponents to outnumber and outplay them.
  • Gives you a huge elixir advantage during the later parts of the battle, and you can use it to summon more troops to swarm your enemy.
  • Can be used to refresh your current hand.
  • Can be used to bait troops such as the Hog Rider to attack it instead of your towers.
  •  

    Weaknesses

  • If used wrongly, opponent can easily have an elixir advantage over you at the start, and they can deal significant amount of damage before you can react to it.
  • Controlling of elixir must be good. Opponent can easily outnumber you with troops in the beginning.
  • Unable to protect itself from troops and spells.
