“He lands with a "POW!", stuns nearby enemies and shoots lightning with both hands! What a show off.”

The Electro Wizard is a Legendary card that is unlocked from the Electro Valley (Arena 11). It spawns a fast, multi-target, air-targeting, medium-ranged, ground troop with moderate hitpoints and moderate damage. The Electro Wizard's attacks stuns his targets for 0.5 seconds. If 2 or more targets are within his range, his attack will split and attack the closest 2 units. He spawns with a Zap upon deployment. An Electro Wizard card costs 4 Elixir to deploy.

Strategy[]

  • Each of his zaps deal half of his full damage. Thus, when attacking two targets, the Electro Wizard will deal half of his full potential damage to each. Conversely, if there is only one target in his range, he will inflict all the possible damage to it.
  • Keep in mind that an Electro Wizard does not inflict splash damage, meaning he is weak against large swarms. However, if he is able to use his spawn damage, he can often cancel them out.
  • His spawn damage behaves identically to a Zap of equal Level. Hence, he can be used to one-shot Skeleton Army or Bats while crippling Goblin Gang and Minion Horde. This is usually a negative Elixir trade, so this should only be used in an emergency or if the player knows the Electro Wizard can immediately get value, such as by attacking a nearby unit after clearing the swarm.
    • A cloned Electro Wizard does not inflict spawn damage.
  • His stunning abilities allow him to force Sparky, Inferno Dragon, or even an Inferno Tower to reset, or the Prince, Dark Prince, Ram Rider and the Battle Ram to stop charging, and to temporarily reset the wind-up before the Bandit dashes, the Mega Knight's jumps, the Fisherman hooks, or the Sparky's charge.
    • A Sparky will be immune to stun effects while on the process of cloning. This can surprise an opponent who tries to stun her with an Electro Wizard. If you notice that the opponent uses both Sparky and Clone in their deck, wait for them to use the Clone on the Sparky before placing the Electro Wizard on top of her.
    • A Giant Snowball can temporarily knock back the Electro Wizard and slow him down, letting a Prince connect his charge on him and defeat him instantly.
  • Unlike other ranged troops, the Electro Wizard does not attack with projectiles. Because of this, his attack will always connect to his target at the same time no matter how far away he is from the target. As such, the Electro Wizard should engage other ranged troops from as far away as possible. An exception can be made for the case where the player wants to make use of the spawn damage against the enemy ranged unit.
    • This aspect also make him great against the Monk, as the Monk's Pensive Protection ability will not deflect the Electro Wizard's attack back.
  • Due to his ability to reset the high damage per second of the Inferno Dragon and Sparky, he can be extremely useful in supporting a P.E.K.K.A or Mega Knight.
  • The Electro Wizard works well with mini tanks like the Knight or Miner. The Knight or Miner can tank for the Electro Wizard while dealing damage, thanks to his stun attacks causing the tower to target onto them.
    • Similarly, he works well with the Graveyard. His attacks messes with the Crown Tower's attack speed, allowing more Skeletons to spawn before the other ones are killed. The Graveyard can be placed slightly later to allow the Electro Wizard to tank a few hits before the Crown Tower retargets to the Skeletons.
  • The Electro Wizard has moderate health and moderately-high damage. He is capable of surviving a Fireball of equivalent levels at full health, although a Mini P.E.K.K.A can one-shot him. Because of this, Electro Wizard is best used behind tanks such as the Knight or Giant. Despite this, a lone Electro Wizard should not be ignored as he can still inflict considerable damage.
  • The Electro Wizard is an excellent support unit in a push due to his ability to reset Inferno Towers. If the player has already destroyed one or two Crown Towers, he can drop the Electro Wizard on top of it and force it to reset and re-target. However, he is vulnerable to Fireball, so defending players should be mindful and space out their troops.
  • The Electro Wizard is capable of reliably countering Hog Rider, allowing only one hit on the Tower. The surviving Electro Wizard can then set up a counterpush.
  • The Electro Wizard can bring slow enemies to a crawl with his frequent attacks. Despite this, troops with slower attack speeds than the Electro Wizard such as the Golem and the Bowler will still be able to attack, as Electro Wizard's zap does not reset non-charge attacks but rather freezes the attack frame in place for a short amount of time.
  • Against Lumberloon strategies, protect the Electro Wizard and make sure the Balloon goes in front of the Lumberjack to fully counter them.
  • When attacking a Crown Tower, the player can send the Electro Wizard in front of other shorter-ranged troops. He will tank a few hits from the tower until the shorter-ranged troop moves in front of the Electro Wizard, after which a hit from the Electro Wizard will force the Tower to change its target to that of the shorter-ranged troop. Although the payoff is potentially high, the risk is equally as high. The opponent can play a troop in front of the unprotected Electro Wizard and quickly take it out with the help of their Crown Tower, leaving the shorter ranged troop also unprotected.
  • When defending against a Electro Wizard, the player should not place a counter troop too close to the side of the Crown Tower, as the Electro Wizard could split the strike onto the Tower and deal unnecessary chip damage. Troops placed at least one tile in front of the Tower will ensure that the Electro Wizard's split attack focuses on the troop only. This makes placing cheap troops like Skeletons almost useless to counter him, since unlike the other Wizards he will still target cards that surround him.
  • An Electro Wizard deployed at the front of a Crown Tower can negate all but one stab from a Goblin Barrel, assuming the barrel is the only card coming. He will attack the front two Goblins and cause them to be taken out by the Tower before attacking, then he will one-shot the last Goblin. This is a negative Elixir Trade, but the Electro Wizard can then be used for a counterpush.
    • There is a precise technique for the Electro Wizard's spawn damage to hit all three Goblins, provided that the Barrel is placed on the center of the Crown Tower. He is able to hit all three Goblins with his spawn damage by placing him down shortly after the Barrel crosses the river (around 2-3 tiles past it). Against a lone Goblin Barrel, it does not prevent any extra damage compared to simply reacting to where the Goblins split and then deploying him. However, if the Goblins are being tanked for by another unit, and there is another unit on the map that can attack the Goblins, hitting all three with the spawn damage can potentially eliminate them more quickly, though this is very situational.
  • The Electro Wizard's split attack can be used to activate the King's Tower with Tornado if he is crossing the bridge alone. When he runs up to your tower, use a Tornado placed 1 tile above and 2 tiles beside the Crown Tower once he stops moving. He will attack the Crown Tower once, then be pulled within range of the King's Tower, causing his next attack to hit both the targeted Crown Tower and the King's Tower. This should only be done if the Electro Wizard is fully healthy, as otherwise he may be defeated during the activation attempt.
  • Unless he is on low enough health to be finished off by a Crown Tower in 1-2 shots, an Electro Wizard should generally never be ignored as even alone he can deal a surprising amount of damage to the Tower thanks to his stun and the fact that his single-target damage is effectively double the damage of a single attack from him. Placing down a mini-tank or even a cheap distraction such as Skeletons or a Spirit is enough to prevent unnecessary damage to your Crown Towers.
    • Note that the Electro Wizard's multi target attack will not cause him to retarget. For example, if the player deploys Archers after the Electro Wizard connects to a Crown Tower, only 1 of the 2 Archers will take damage and he will still hit the Crown Tower. Because of this, the player should try to push him out of range of his previous target if they want to counter him that way.
  • An Electro Wizard is a very reliable counter to an unsupported Ram Rider, being capable of fully countering one with Crown Tower support for a +1 Elixir trade. However, depending on the Level difference between them and when the Electro Wizard was placed, the Ram Rider's snare attack can severely cripple his hitpoints. Keep this in mind if you plan on using him in a counterpush.
