Tombstone (3 Elixir Cost) 

  • Tombstone is very rarely used for offense, as the Skeletons usually will never be able to reach a tower. It is, however, a terrific counter to quick offensive troops such as Prince and Hog Rider, and if placed correctly, a single Tombstone by itself should be enough to take care of a Prince or a Hog Rider on defense. If your opponent is playing a Tombstone to distract your push, it is usually not worth specifically counterplaying. Instead, just reinforce your push with more troops to help take out the Skeletons quicker
