Discussion[edit]

Most effectively cast on strong troops like Vampire Lords or those that strike all around, or massively numbered troops like Halberdiers. Counterstrike can be cast on Griffins and Royal Griffins, but it has no effect on the latter, as Royal Griffins already have unlimited retaliations.
