Archers are one of the basic cards you can get when you start playing Clash Royale. Two archers are placed when deployed. They target both ground and flying troops. They have slightly higher hit points than the Goblins. Thus, they can survive with a little health after taking damage from Arrows or Zap spell.
Archers can counter Minions easily and other low health troops. They work best with a tank like Giant and can be used on both offense and defense easily because of its cheap elixir cost.
