5. Minion Horde – 
"Six fast, unarmored flying attackers. Three's a crowd, six is a horde!"

This card unlocks at Arena 4, named Pekka’s PlayHouse. The 6 minions is very deadly specially to the tank type troops.

"A pair of unarmored ranged attackers. They'll help you with ground and air unit attacks, but you're on your own with coloring your hair."

A pair of archers are deadly as hell if they have protection infront. This card also unlocks at the very beginning but generally not very common in the decks of the players. They can deal a very high damage if they get protection. Archers are very useful to take out Air attackers as they have high damage. They can back up the tank type troops very well but due to low hp they are prone to death.
