Best Dagger Duchess Decks for New Clash Royale Challenge

Dagger Duchess Challenge decks

The Dagger Duchess is finally here in the new Clash Royale Season 58, bringing a whole new mechanic to the table (or should I say, tower?).

This legendary tower troop throws a bunch of daggers initially, then needs to recharge before releasing another burst.

Dagger Duchess Stats

  • HP: 3204 (beefier than Cannoneer and Princess)
  • Damage: 153 (higher initial burst than others)
  • Recharge Time: Takes a while around 1.25sec to refill her dagger stash
  • Targets: Can target both ground and air troops

What Makes Dagger Duchess Different?

  • Burst Damage: Duchess wrecks low-HP troops and tanks with her initial dagger flurry.
  • Weakness to Swarms: Once she’s out of daggers, she struggles against large groups.
  • Matchup Dependent: She shines against chip damage decks but struggles against heavy pushes.

Dagger Duchess vs. Other Tower Troops

  • Canoneer: Outshines Duchess after 7 seconds of continuous attack.
  • Princess Tower: Takes the lead after 20 seconds of attacking.
  • Duchess Advantage: Melts single-target threats and deals more damage upfront.

  • Mega Knight: Secondary win condition and a powerful defensive troop. Can be used to absorb damage aimed at your Royal Giant.
  • Fire Spirit: A cheap cycle card used for chip damage on towers and distracting enemy troops.
  • Arrows: Save it to clear swarms like Goblin Gang, Minion Horde, or Bats that attack your Royal Giant.
  • Log: Primarily used to counter Goblin Barrel, Princess, Firecracker, or Skeletons.
