Ram Rider Summary
“ Together they charge through the Arena; snaring enemies, knocking down towers … and chewing grass!?”
The Ram Rider is unlocked from Arena 10 (Hog Mountain). The Ram Rider charges forward to the nearest building all while snaring troops and dealing damage to them.
Strategies for using Ram Rider
The Ram Rider has the unique ability to snare cards, which reduces their movement speed by 85% while also damaging them. Using her snare effectively is crucial to getting value out of her. Therefore, it is crucial to understand how it works.
- Unlike how it worked at its release, her snare does not completely restrict movement.
- The snare prioritizes units that are closest, then units that have not been snared.
- She can keep 1 or 2 units snared constantly snared, but struggles with more.
- The snare does not affect the attack speed or damage dealt.
Using the snare correctly is imperative to use the Ram Rider to its full potential. You want to use the snare to help on defense, then use her to make a counterattack. Without her snare, the Ram Rider is essentially a worse Hog Rider.
On defense, you want to use the Ram Rider for her snare so other units can follow up. Although she lacks the ability to completely stop troops from moving as she could at her release, she is still great at counterattacking. Your main goal is to ensure that her snare stays on units for as long as possible. You should place her far back, in the opposite lane, or even behind your princess towers. Your primary goal is to keep enemy units snared as long as possible. This allows you tower and other units to take them out.
Offensively, the Ram Rider is great at securing consistent damage. She has few absolute counters and when combined with a small spell, can be very effective. You should watch out for large buildings and big melee units like the PEKKA and Mega Knight. Snowball works especially well with the Ram Rider since it pushes units away and keeps them away with her snare.
Ram Rider Decks
The Ram Rider can be replaced with other cards that target buildings. The Hog Rider is a good replacement since they can both function as win conditions, but he does lack the defense abilities that the Ram Rider has.
