No love for death minions?

Ever since I got animate on my death, it was my favorite spell. I mean, the minions are just so awesome. Weakness, death trap, fire elf, kraken, the whole nine yards. But as long as i have played the arena(which, trust me, has been a long time), I have never, ever(as far as I remember, -) seen another death wizard use animate. The best was a death wizard that got mad when I used a minion. I ask you all, have you seen some use animate? If so, how did the match go? I mean, the minion is awesome. Is there a reason why they don't use it? Or am I just blind?

Oh, and if you saw a wizard names William Soulhunter use a minion, that doesn't count. It's just me ;)

Come to think of it i've never actually seen a death use animate very much. Once or twice i've seen it, (from getting paired up with my death friends) but besides from that nope. The reason some death dont use it is because it takes up all your pips. Or it doesnt really suite them in a 1v1? But i personally agree with you. I use animate all the time on my death. I keep about three in my deck. :-D

Thats because death minions are very good at using up traps and as a death wizard, with traps such as feint and curse, you will rely heavily on traps.

My adept death uses full minions in the arena and is the only way to play. Traps are worthless because anyone good will have shields to block them. I do not even put traps in my deck and am pretty much impossible to beat. In fact, all my characters in all schools rely heavily on minions. Shield and heal while your minion does the work. IF they kill my minion then I put another one up right away.

The death minion is what i base my complete 1v1 strategy on. I have no trouble winning matches except for against Myth wizards. The battles can be long and frustrating for others, but it gets the job done.
