A double striker - Undead Minotaur

Hey Splinterlanders!

This week's theme is to share a battle with the common death monster UNDEAD MINOTAUR. It's a reward card and comes with a melee attack with a double strike and retaliate ability at level 6.

You can read more about this week's challenge on Splinterlands official post by visiting the following link.


UNDEAD MINOTAUR is a COMMON rarity reward edition monster that lies under the death deck. I like its double strike ability and it also gains retaliate ability at level 6 but I don't like it when it doesn't retaliate at all. Anyways my battle wasn't so impressive but it was undead minotaur which did the winning strike.

I've added the screenshot of my battle and you can also find a link to watch my battle below.


Watch the Battle

What was my Lineup?

It was a 44 mana battle with Melee Mayhem rulesets, I'll explain each monster used in the battle below.
So, let's move forward.

I went with Zintar Moralis Death Summoner, it reduces melee attack of opponent's monsters by -1. I wanted to reduce my opponent's melee attack as this battle had ruleset of melee mayhem.

My first monster was Lord Arianthus aka LA , I used level 3 of it as a tank due to its Thorns ability. It's an oldie reward legendary but is a goldie as it has 4 abilities and works as a good tank backed with a healer.

In the second place, I used the neutral untamed legendary Cornealus level 2. It also has thorns ability and tank heal too. I used it at 2nd place as it can heal itself if it gets sniped and in case my tank gets killed it can also work as a tank.

The third position was covered with Undead Minotaur. Well, my opponent used a monster with demoralize ability which reduced my melee attack. But still, I managed to win. I could use this monster at last position to counter with sneak ability as my monster would have retaliated.

Next, I used level 6 Octopider, it's a ranged monster with good speed, attack, and health. It has Demoralize ability which reduced my opponent's melee attack by -1.

At fifth place, I went with an EPIC Phantom Soldier, it magic attacked and also silenced the opponent's magic.

Lastly, I used the death sniper Twisted Jester level 3. I wanted to snipe my opponent so its 2nd line can get some damage but my opponent didn't use any ranged or magic at all so my sniper attacked its tank.

Did your strategy work?

Well, my battle wasn't so impressive which could show up this monster's hidden ability or talent. Anyways the last attack was done by this monster and it made me win this battle.

Do you use UNDEAD MINOTAUR often?

Nope. I don't remember when the last time I used this monster, maybe the reason is that there are other alternate options available than this monster.

That's all for now. See you at Battle Field.

We can't win 'em all. I mean, you won this one... but you know what I mean ;O)

Yes, this monster takes a little bit to figure out where he's perfectly used. It does happen, he becomes useful. I've seen some battles this week where he's a double-striking beast... and others where he dies (valiantly?) very quickly.

Thanks for sharing!
