Electro Dragon

“Spits out bolts of electricity hitting up to three targets. Suffers from middle child syndrome to boot.”

Summary

The Electro Dragon card is unlocked from Electro Valley (Arena 11). The Electro Dragon is a flying troop with moderate hitpoints and damage. Its attack is a chain lightning that can hit up to three targets. The Electro Dragon resembles a small blue dragon with blue eyes and glowing spikes on its back. An Electro Dragon card costs 5 Elixir to deploy.

Strategy

  • The Electro Dragon has a chain lightning attack wherein each attack that the Dragon fires has the ability to spread out to a maximum of two other nearby targets.
    • Keep in mind that this is not a splash damage effect. The chain lightning will merely hit three individual troops.
    • If the Electro Dragon’s attack only strikes one target, the target will only take one-third of the Electro Dragon’s potential firepower. Unlike the Electro Wizard, unspent charges on the Dragon’s attack are not stacked on to the original target.
  • The Electro Dragon has great synergy with the Graveyard. The chain lightning effect allows the Electro Dragon to kill defensive troops while locked on to the Crown Tower.
  • If there is a unit placed within three tiles of both a Princess Tower and the King Tower, the Electro Dragon will hit all three and potentially wake the King.
  • The Electro Dragon is quite a fragile unit. It is best used as a helper on defense where other troops can take blows for it or behind a tank on offense.
  • Since the Electro Dragon stuns and flies, it can be reliably used to counter charge units, especially those that cannot hit air like the Prince or Sparky.
  • A Lightning spell can take out an Electro Dragon immediately.
  • The Electro Dragon can be used to attack troops that are being protected by tank cards, like Archers behind a Giant for example.
  • Single-troop cards like the Musketeer or Mega Minion are great counters since the Electro Dragon will not be able to deal full damage to them because its attack will be unable to chain.
  • Electro Dragon is an ideal counter to Zappies because even though the lights on its back light up before attacking, stun effects will not reset its attack; destroying them with more than enough health left over for a counterpush.
  • The Electro Dragon is very strong in Golem decks as it will be able to delay or kill support units or tank killers that are placed to counter the Golem; as well as render Inferno Tower and Inferno Dragon useless, similar to an Electro Wizard.

Trivia

  • It is one of the the three troops that are “miniature” versions of another troop in Clash of Clans, the others being the Baby Dragonand Mini P.E.K.K.A.. They are smaller versions of the Electro Dragon, Dragon, and P.E.K.K.A. respectively.
  • It is the only “miniature” version that has the same name from Clash of Clans.
  • Based on its flavor text, it can be assumed that the three dragons are siblings (Electro Dragon being the “middle child”).
  • After each attack, the spikes on the Electro Dragon’s back light up in sequence, similar to a Sparky’s charge.
  • The Electro Dragon’s attack does the same damage as a Zap of the same level, except only to 3 units.
  • It is one of three units capable of damaging multiple units without causing splash damage, the others being the Electro Wizard and the Hunter.
