A Guide to Battle Healer

A detailed guide to the Clash Royale Battle Healer!

Battle Healer – Basics

battle healer

The Battle Healer is a 4 Elixir elixir Rare card which can be unlocked from Spooky Town (Arena 12.)

She deals moderate damage, having a relatively high HP, so she can be used as a tank.

However, her unique power is her ability to heal surrounding troops when she is attacking, while healing herself too.

She can kill lots of troops easily due to her high HP and her healing effect.

Best Counters to Battle Healer?

Clash Royale KnightClash Royale Mini P.E.K.K.AClash Royale ValkyrieClash Royale Ice Golem

(basically, any relatively tanky melee troop works well)

Offensive Utility

She is very good in big beatdown decks because of the huge value that she can provide with her healing aura.

For example, in an Elixir Golem deck, she is very strong because the three forms of the Elixir Golem (big boi, medium bois, and small bois) can tank for the support troops for a very long time, allowing things like Night Witch and Electro Dragon to be placed behind, along with whatever else.

Combined with the Battle Healer, if the Battle Healer attacks your enemy’s defensive troops (which they will inevitably have to put down) all your troops in that area will be healed, almost providing infinite HP for the troops as long as the Battle Healer is alive!

This makes a big Elixir Golem push extremely hard to stop.

Similarly, she can also be used very effectively in Golem decks, but she cannot be cycled and spammed as quickly because of the Golem’s elixir cost.

Other than this, she cannot be used in very many other decks. Because of her medium move speed, she is not very good in decks like Hog, Balloon, or Miner Cycle/Control because she does not provide much utility in healing her troops, which is her main point, because she does not exactly provide much DPS. However, she does work in one Ram Rider Spam deck because of the number of medium health troops. She is the main star in that deck!


Defensive Utility

On defence, she is also very useful because of her tankiness.

Combined with a high-HP troop like Mini Pekka, she is very useful in keeping the defensive troop alive.

Always make sure never to send her alone because she can be countered fairly easily.

It is when she is with troops around her that she is at her most deadly because she is also often shielded by these other troops!

Countering a push with Battle Healer

OK, so you’ve just seen your opponent place an Elixir Golem in the back. Oh no. Now a Night Witch comes down. Double oh no. Now the Battle Healer comes down. Triple oh no.

What do you even do?

One of the reasons Bomb Tower has been very good in the past few metas has been because of how many Elixir Golem Battle Healer decks there have been running around, and Bomb Tower was the biggest hard counter because it is one of the only two building that do splash damage.

Therefore, Bomb Tower plus Tornado will work wonders, shutting down everything easily.

Basically, you will want to shred the tank down as quickly as possible, then destroying everything behind, along with the Battle Healer, with a high damage troop or a spell such as Fireball or Rocket.

She is extremely annoying to deal with if you can’t kill her initially, so stay patient and don’t rage. You will feel like you are helpless, but just keep trying again next time if you don’t succeed!

Best Decks for Battle Healer

Deck #1: EGolem Healer w/ Magic Archer

elixir golembattle healerClash Royale Night WitchClash Royale Electro Dragon
Clash Royale Magical ArcherClash Royale Barbarian BarrelClash Royale TornadoClash Royale Poison

EGolem, Healer, Night Witch, Electro Dragon, Magic Archer, Barbarian Barrel, Tornado, Poison

This one will not be so strong after the new Magic Archer nerf but is still very good.

This is an incredibly toxic deck that your opponents will hate you for playing. But you don’t care, right? Winning is what matters…hahaha.

Basically, just defend with the minimal amount of Elixir in single elixir and don’t be afraid to lose your tower, just make sure you have gotten a substantial elixir advantage in order for you to build up a big push in Double Elixir and overwhelm them.

Basically, keep spamming troops behind, almost mindlessly. The number of splash troops combined with Tornado allow you to counter a large range of decks, and Lightning is very useful on offence.

Try this one out! Also very, very good in Triple Elixir/Infinite Elixir.

Here’s SirTag playing this deck.

Deck #2: EGolem Healer w/ Barb Hut

The new meta EGolem deck! The big spell bait potential of the Barb Hut means you are free to spam as many troops as you like behind that big purple Golem, plus the new death spawn makes the Barb Hut even more deadly, building up more and more Barbarians.

Here’s some top ladder gameplay of this deck by one of the best Elixir Golem players.

Deck #3: Ram Rider Bandit Healer Spam

This strange-looking deck is actually one of the best decks in Grand Challenges! Good thing it’s mainly a challenge deck because it’s not a good deck to use if you’re F2P (4 legendaries, 2 epics, 2 rares!)

However, it is also used in top 200 ladder to great success.

With this deck, keeping up constant pressure is key. Cannon Cart is often underestimated and can deal great damage to your enemy’s tower.

Split lane pushing is often a good idea, especially in double elixir due to the number of fast high-pressure troops which force a response. Battle Healer is a big nuisance to deal with, and this deck really is a handful to deal with!

Here’s seasoned pro Coltonw83 using this deck to great effect.

Deck #4: Golem Healer

Clash Royale Baby DragonClash Royale Electro DragonClash Royale Goblin BarrelClash Royale Tornado

The Elixir Golem’s big brother takes centre stage with this deck.

Essentially a modification of the Elixir Golem decks, this has been used to great effect, especially showcasing the strengths of the Mini Pekka and the Baby Dragon.

Here’s Golem pro FloGeN playing this deck.

I hope you enjoyed this guide to Clash Royale Battle Healer. You might just start using her more, despite her toxicity! She is definitely a very enjoyable card to use.
