Mortar (4 Elixir Cost) 

  • The Mortar is like a mini X-Bow. It can hit your towers from the other side of the arena, but has a blind spot up close where it cannot attack troops. However, it attacks very slowly and is fairly vulnerable to counterattack, and unlike X-Bow, players do not have to build their entire deck around it. I’ve actually seen a lot of players use it to put pressure on the one lane while they push down the other lane with their troops. Generally, you’ll want to deal with Mortar the same way you’d deal with an X-Bow.
