If you're looking for a support dragon, then I recommend Rust(metal/water/earth). It has 3 support moves, while Clownfish only has 2. (wind isnt a support skill)

It depends on what you mean by "support." I consider Wind to be an excellent support (defensive) skill, and it's virtually just as efficient or even moreso than Stone Shield (since Stone Shield can be debuffed with Burnout but Storm's A Brewin' can only be eradicated with Restorative Recourse. And, let's face it, no one wants to waste a turn using that on one dragon unless multiple status problems have been applied to it).

Rust is good because it's one of the most tanky dragons in the game, but I would prefer Clownfish's Wind over Vengeful Sword.

As for the op's question, my best guess as to why a lot of people use Elemental and Clay is because of the combinations of the ability to heal with water, defend with Stone Shield, and Stun / Burn with Energy or Fire. Those two dragons seem to have good health (your defense stat in this game) and decent attack as well. And, if you consider that a lot of people probably use them specifically because they've been recommended on the forum, it's no surprise that they're pretty popular.

I use Clownfish. My two attackers do not have space for Wind so I want to have Wind on my support dragon.

I use Elemental because it was a dragon that I bred early in the game, well before all the other Epics.
So it was logical to upgrade it and its skills too...
My first real team was Cyborg, UV or Razor and Elemental.

I use typhoon and he's great! I place him as my first dragon so he can cast stone shield or storms a brewing.

First of all... rust seems to be nice, but taking double damage from one of the 3 strong offensive elements is a no go for my team.

I think Clay is slightly better than Elemental, he has a bit more attack -> his heal and stoneshield are going to be stronger. And with the skill to stun with his energy attack it doesn't matter that much if his only pure offensive element is weak against a dragon, at least if he is able to stun the dragon. ^^

I plan to exchange my elemental to clay, even though my elemental is already level 34.

I prefer to mix my support in with all of my dragons. If every dragon has at least one attack and one defensive ability you have much more versatility. You don't have to worry about waiting for the right dragon's turn to do what you want to do.

I am curious as to what your team is then. Right now i have rust tiger and agave. Clay in hatchery and will swap rust with clay. Want to use clay because clay is not weak to energy as rust is, and because clay has an offensive move in energy. Plus will help with bosses with stun when i get it
