Clash Royale Season 18: New card and balance changes detailed

If you play Clash Royale competitively, you need to know exactly what the balance changes are each season. Further,  you probably want to get a handle on a new card. With Clash Royale Season 18 out now, Supercell has added a new Legendary card, and made balance changes to a total of 11 cards.

Clash Royale Season 18: Mother Witch card

The Mother Witch seems incredibly strong thanks to her special ability. Basically, she puts a curse on enemy units with each attack, and when a cursed unit is destroyed, they turn into a building-targeting Hog.

The Mother Witch is of Legendary rarity and costs four (4) Elixir to use. She has a Sight Range and Attack Range of 5.5, with medium attack speed and a 1.2 second hit time. She can target both air and ground units. The time to deploy is exactly 1 second, and the effect of her curse lasts 5.5 seconds.
