This challenge is with one of the most used rare CL card in my oppinion Cursed Windeku.
This is a monster I use frequently and usually i win if the focus of the fight is melee.

Some stats of the card

Cursed Windeku.png

Card Name: Cursed Windeku
Mana Cost: 6
Rarity: Rare
Splinter: Death
Abilities: Thorns/ Heal / Slow
Max Level: 8
Speed: 3 (the whole time)
Type: Melee
Card Set : Chaos Legion

The Cursed Windeku is my personal favorite monster from the Death Splinter, because he possess two of the best abilities in the game, which is the:

Thorns: When hit with a Melee attack, does damage back to the attacker. Has an upper cap of 2.

Heal: Restores a portion of the Monster's health each round. Restores 1/3 of the max health, rounded down.

Slow: Reduces the Speed of all enemy Monsters by one.

Usually I use him on Level 5 and aboveto take advantage of his Self Heal ability, which greatly improves his survivability and the Thorns will help him to deal with the enemy Melee attack creatures.

He is truly an auto-pick for me especially in lower mana battles and in melee based matches, because he cost only six mana and huge inpact.

This time i lower too much my Power and i was at silver at the start of the new season so the battle is from there too.

The battle ruleset is opportunity and enrage with only 14 mana i had not that much of options for teams and with only death splinter avalable.
My opponent tried to bring more monsters for more split dmg and i decided to use Windeku + monk and it's heal.
So tank off tank strategy with a little help from meatshield fiend.
At round 2 i might be in trouble if my Cursed Windeku did not hit first

But the RNG was on my side so i hit him first my Windeku got 2 dmg from thorns but after that i was pretty sure that the game is mine.

With a game with so little monsters there were like 10 misses before it ended but luckly i got the best screen in the game.

At last a tip I believe that this card can always be used in games with little mana after all it is a good card for the benefits it provides so don't forget this tip.

I wish you all a wonderful 2023 as it starts today, for all the Hive and Splinterlands communities, be Healthy and enjoy the ride.
