Spear Goblins (2 Elixir Cost)
- One of the most versatile cards in the game, spawning three fast and squishy Goblins with relatively high-damage ranged attacks, you’ll see this card getting played a LOT. If they’ve built up a swarm of Spear Goblins + other squishy swarm troops such as Goblins and Minions, it’s usually worth an Arrows or maybe even a Fireball if they’ve got some Archers, Barbarians, or Wizards thrown in the mix. Otherwise, any troop should easily take them out. Splash damage from Wizards, Bombers, and Baby Dragons are especially effective vs Spear Goblins as they can easily kill all 3 in a single attack. If it’s just 3 Spear Goblins attacking your tower by themselves, it’s usually best to play nothing at all, as you’ll take minimal damage and the tower will quickly take them out.
