Clash Royale Rascals Guide – How To Use

So finally, the new Clash Royale card, Rascals, is here, coming up with the special Rascals Draft Challenge!

In this page, we are collecting the best tips and tricks for you guys to get 12 wins in the Challenge, and of course, to get that huge pack of the Rascals.

Card Summary

The Rascals card can be unlocked from Arena 9.

This card deploys a group of 3 units: A Rascal boy and 2 Rascal Girls. This can be considered as a discounted Knight + Archers combo.

Rascal Boy is single target melee unit with moderate HP and damage. Clash Royale Gems Generator Rascal Girls are also single-target units with medium attack range, low HP and moderate damage.

The Rascal boy is basically a Mini-Tank wielding a wooden sword while Rascal Girls are squishy ranged support wielding slingshots with Double Trouble Gum as the projectile.

Together, they counter each other weakness and thus, can prove to be very strong, especially when over-levelled on the ladder.

The deployment is always a the boy in the front and the girls behind.

Tips for Rascals Draft Challenge

Here are some cards that will work great with the Rascals in the Challenge. Pick them If you have the chance.

Synergies with Rascals

Hog Rider

Rascals and this bad boy can be dope. With R.Boy’s High HP and R.Girls’ High DPS, it is a perfect combo.

Graveyard

Tank + Support + Graveyard. Classic. Not much to say here. Can be used when opponent is low on elixir or when one tower down.

Siege Buildings

Mortar and X-bow both will be benefitted with Release of Rascals as its gonna be cheaper to protect your buildings.

Bait

Play Rascals. Wait for opponent to use The Log. Throw in Goblin Barrel and Goblin Gang. Ah, the feeling.

Defensive Synergies

AoE cards

Neither the R.Boy nor the R.Girl deal splash. So, having AoE cards is necessary for the Rascals to cause menace.

Ice Spirit

Freeze for 1 sec to make the Rascals do their job in an easier way.

Air Swarms

Tank with Rascals and Spank with Bats, Minions and Minion Horde. The Air and Ground combo also makes this hard to counter on your side of the map.

How to counters to Rascals?

General way to counter

The general way to counter Rascals is simply taking out the R.Girls and then focusing on R.Boy. Treat R.Boy as just another melee tank and use just the normal cards you use to kill them.

Here, I will be talking about cards which counter Rascals 1v1 (with the help of Crown Tower) and not card combinations.

Swarms

These specifically include Minion Horde, Skeleton Army, Barbarians and Goblin Gang.

With high DPS, these can take care of Rascals with ease.

However, beware of Spells or Splash Troops.

Melee Troops

These specifically include Mini P.E.K.K.A, Valkyrie, Prince, Dark Prince, Lumberjack, Night Witch, Knight.

Not sure about the interaction with Bandit and Royal Ghost yet.

Generally, place them behind the R.Girls and kill them (as they are the higher DPS units) and then it’s just a battle between your troop and the R.Boy which rather easy as he can’t dish out much damage and the battle is on your side of the arena.

Splash Troops

These specifically include Bowler, Executioner, Witch, Wizard.

With their Splash Damage they can take simultaneously hit all the 3 units.

Bomb Tower:

Can one shot the R.Girls while the R.Boy would die soon enough.

 

Hunter

You can use him first to kill R.Girls by placing him behind them and let R.Boy come close enough for Hunter to be able to do max damage.

Or another tactic, is to use Hunter’s range and splash by placing him at the centre.

Thus, he can be used as a Melee Troop or a Splash Troop.

Barbarian Barrel

The Barrel can itself take care of the R.Girls while the Barbarian can take care of the R.Boy.

However, the R.Boy has high health he may end up killing the Barbarian and get couple of hits off the tower.
