Overview:

Having only dealt with the Minion Horde recently, I can say from experience how effective they are at decimating enemy forces. In the right combination, there's almost no defense. The Minion Horde is unlockable in P.E.K.K.A's Playhouse.

Strength:

The main strength of the Minion Horde come from the troop count of 6. With the attack speed of 1, being the same as the Minions counterpart, destroying a distracted tower will take little effort. Depending on card rotation, it may even be possible to deploy two hordes on the field, making it difficult to defend against.

Weakness:

From my experience, the best defense against the Minion Horde is usually area attacks. With their lack of armor, range troops have no problem countering the horde, especially when they are deployed behind one of your towers. As long as there are ranged troops in your deck, there is a defense against the card, even if it's only for a few seconds.

How To Counter The Minion Horde:

From my experience, the best defense against the Minion Horde is usually Arrows. As long as the cards match up to the same level, it should be easy to take them out.

Why not add insult to injury by sending out the Three Musketeers? If you do not have the card, Archers or the Musketeer are the next best thing. When either card is deployed behind a tower, the horde is likely to focus more on the building and ignore the units surrounding it, making it easy to pick them off.

The Minion Horde is an interesting card, but there are many counters to it. How do you counter the card? And if it is in your deck, what strategy have you found works best for you? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

Overall:

The Minion Horde is a nice air unit but risky if not played well. Its elixir cost is hurtful so using it further in the game needs great strategy on how to utilize it to its full extent. This horde can easily deal with any beefy tanks or building cards on site.

  • Actually, the Minion Horde is unlocked in Arena Four, P.E.K.K.A's Playhouse -- 14:26, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
  • So i believe that minion horde, pekka, wizard, mirror, guards, arrows, rage, and valk works really well because you can counter push using the minion horde and mirror or pressuring them and making them waste elixir to defend against the minion horde while your other mirrored minion horde is out with your pekka -- 00:11, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
