The Baby Dragon is a splash damage dealing air troop. Very effective at clearing swarms of ground troops, especially if they can’t attack the air. It is also very effective against smaller air troops such as Minions and the newly introduced Bats. Minion Hordes can inflict enough damage to take out the baby dragon but distract the horde for a second and the Baby Dragon will demolish them.
The downside to the baby Dragon is that it has a relatively small amount of health and low attack damage. This makes it weak against larger troops and would have to be protected while attacking others. It needs to be in a support role or a defensive role as even when at the tower with no enemy troops, the damage it causes before the tower brings it down is negligible.
Other uses for the Baby Dragon include, lowering the health of the slow moving Barbarians for the crown towers to finish off, either the group of 4 or when in a constant stream from the Barbarian hut. They work as a back up to the inferno dragon by removing the smaller troops that distract the inferno dragon so it can lock on to the larger troops/towers. The “Double Dragon” attack can work if you can establish that your opponent does not have the right counter. Be aware however that if they do have the correct counters for 2 air based troops you would be seriously disadvantaged after they have been destroyed.
