Cannon (3 Elixir Cost) 

  • A cheap, relatively beefy defensive building, the Cannon is great at luring and killing Hogs, Giants, and Golems, as well as reinforcing your defenses. Its main weakness is its inability to hit air. I like to play it reactively as a buffer against building targeting troops. It is usually not necessary to proactively counter our opponents Cannon unless you’re running a Hog Deck, in which case you MAY want to consider Fireballing it or Lightninging it if you can also hit their troops or the tower.
