Strategies for Playing Bandit
The Bandit is a unique card because of her powerful dash attacks, and her immunity while dashing. Without her dash, the Bandit is like a weaker Knight. The key to getting value from the Bandit is getting value from her dashes. To do this, you should look to take out small units like the Princess, Dart Goblin, and ranged units.
On offense, the Bandit functions as a bridge spam troop that can also be used behind tanks. Although incredibly vulnerable to swarm units of melee targets, she requires that your opponent addresses her. She can also engage the tower very quickly and go right past units if she charges up before they engage. To defend against this, you can place your units within 3 tiles of her to prevent her from dashing.
The Bandit excels at taking out small units wish her dash, and chaining together attacks. She can dash past attacks from ranged units can quickly take them out, then continue to dash towards the tower. The Bandit is a very high-risk high-reward card. She either gets great value and dominates the match, or is consistently countered by melee units.
Best Bandit Decks
The Bandit does well against Princess, decks with lots of ranged units, and one without cheap swarms like Goblins.
