    Strategy

  • It can be used for “counterattacking” due to his special ability and damage. It is able to attack on its own due to his decent hitpoints as well.
  • Most players uses the Prince with Dark Prince as the Dark Prince will destroy opposing troops while the Prince dashes to the tower.
  • Very powerful in the early stages of the game. (From Arena 1-3) Players do not have the necessary cards to defend against the Prince.
