This Clash Royale tier list has been curated with the singular aim of helping you to choose the best cards from over a hundred available options for your decks in Season 35.

Clash Royale features a total of 103 cards and 4 champions for you to choose from, and considering the huge number of choices available, creating your decks can be incredibly time-consuming. If you’re aware of the best-performing cards at any given point in time, however, you’ll be able to gain an edge over your opponents.

After several reworks and balance changes were released early in May 2022, several cards have shifted position, landing them in an entirely different position on our tier list. When utilizing the best cards from the higher tiers of our Clash Royale rankings, the game’s strategic, high-octane gameplay will be taken up a notch as you work towards making it into the Legendary Arena.

Season 35 is underway in Clash Royale and the tier list looks a lot different than before.

Clash Royale Tier List (Season 35)

Our Clash Royale tier list has been divided into four separate tiers. Cards listed in the A Tier are ones you should be using as often as you can in play, whereas those in D Tier should be avoided as much as possible.

  • A Tier: Cards in this tier are undoubtedly the best ones to use in Season 35.
  • B Tier: Although not the strongest cards, they can still be devastating in multiple scenarios to help change the course of a match.
  • C Tier: While these cards can be overlooked in most situations, they are still capable of doing a decent job in specific scenarios.
  • D Tier: These cards should be avoided as much as you can. On top of being fairly impactless cards, they also waste a notable amount of elixir during battles.

Without further ado, let’s dive in and check out the Clash Royale tier list for Season 35.

Best Clash Royale decks from the Tier List

After the recent changes made to decks at the start of Season 35, some of the strongest cards in the current meta belong to the offensive category. To stand the best chance at taking down your foes, we’d recommend that you try to make your deck from the A and B tier lists.


However, it is extremely important to have a good balance between offense and defense in your decks. After all, you can never know your opponent’s cards before the match begins. Therefore, here are a few decks that you can try out for your next battles in Clash Royale:

  • Va-Ho-Witch: Fireball, Furnace, Hog Rider, Ice Spirit, Inferno Dragon, Valkyrie, Witch, and Zap.
  • Go-Bandit-Night Witch rush: Archers, Baby Dragon, Bandit, Golem, Lightning, The Log, Night Witch, and Skeletons.
  • Valkyrie-Skeleton rush: Witch, Valkyrie, Skeleton Army, Inferno Dragon, Bats, Log, Goblin Crate, and Mega Knight.

So, there you have it – that’s everything you need to about the Clash Royale tier list for Season 35.
