The Skull Knight has a lot of hit points, but a low speed and no ranged attack, making it very vulnerable against artillery. It is very strong in melee combat because does AoE damage, and it is very effective vs. cavalry due to its multipliers.
It can be trained from the Fire Pit with Garland War Dance and automatically upgrades as player advances in Age.
They work well when utilized in numbers considering their splash damage can be dramatically more powerful against infantry and cavalry when in a massed clump.
Unfortunately, since their lack of speed leaves them vulnerable to artillery, it is recommended to support them with Arrow Knights, since their high range allows them to do increased damage to artillery, while the Skull Knights are unable to close the gap before many Skull Knights are lost or severely damaged.
Another good combination is with the Coyote Runner, since they will reach the artillery quicker and destroy them before they cause too much damage.

"In Aztec society, membership in the calpulli established each individual's religious and secular schooling, as well as how they would be trained in warfare. The men of a calpulli served together in battle and on the numerous public works projects. Their soldiers wielded weapons of wood and stone, and they often sought prisoners to be sacrificed in religious ceremonies.
The most-feared and powerful division in the Aztec army was made up of skull knights. Their name, Tzitzimitl, translates as "frightful specters," the skull knight dressed as a kind of undead horror, and the enemy often fled at their advance."
