I like Minotaurus very special way of positive thinking. Anytime, anywhere best 7th units killer. No need for any other tricks. ;)

Mighty Gorgons + Alkin :D

Mighty Gorgons are the most solid unit in that level range and are my assigned level 7 killers with Death Stare :proud:

Mighty gorgon. By a large stack they are uberkillers. And the overal stats are nice...

Difficult for me, because this level involves no less than 4 of my favorite creatures.

Okay, the ratings again:
A) Single unit:

1) Mighty Gorgon 41.42
2) T-Bird 38.99
3) Minotaur King 33.41
4) Master Genie 32.18
5) Pit Lord 30.65
6) Power Lich 30.34
7) Dendroid Soldier 22.79
8) Zealot 20.86
9) Magma Elemental 16.38

B) Weekly Production. Only difference is that Magmas are slightly better than Zealots then and Dendroid Soldiers a TAD better than Power Liches.

C) Cost effectivity:

1) Mighty Gorgon 6.90
2) Minotaur King 5.81
3) T-Bird 5.57
4/5)Master Genie 5.36
4/5) Dendroid Soldier 5.36
6) Power Lich 5.06
7) Zealot 4.64
8) Pit Lord 4.38
9) Magma Elemental 3.28

Mighty Gorgons ARE probably the best creatures, but I like Minos, Whip Lords and especially the T-Birds a lot (and could make a case for them), so I'm going to mull a bit about the vote.
ZZZzzzz....

Great combo! Image + Image

It's a good thing Mighty Gorgons are so slow, otherwise they'd be quite overpowering.

So because of their 'Lightning Speed' …
I'm giving my vote to: Thunderbirds

Hmm. Minotaurs have great stats, and Thunderbirds are a flier that you can actually expect to be able to take some heat, but they do not do things that no other unit can do. Pit Lords can raise you hordes of demons, but I think that ability is made slightly better than it really is due to the fact that Familiars and Magogs are pretty bad units for their levels. I'd definately pick the Mighty Gorgons if it was about composing your own town, and I think that I'll let that be the deciding factor here. Thus, Mighty Gorgons.

Mighty Gorgons all the way. Death stare is great for shaving units off level 7 stacks. Actually, I think the Mighty Gorgons are by far the best unit the Fortress has going for it.

Yeah, right. The Mighties are too good.
By the way the defense stat of them should be colored red (not the Mino's)

Voted Mighty Gorgons.
Lots of HP, good attack and a very nice special ability.

The T-birds were runners up by a fair margin.

The Mighty Gorgons! There's no doubt, really. They are simply the best. Even the fearsome Azure Dragons bow before of the terrible death stare of the black bulls of Tatalia. Sudden Death, man...

Mighty Gorgons. The death stare was the winning factor, for me.

Considering that Fortress's other creatures are somewhat lacking in pure power, it's only logical that they have one of the deadliest creatures in the entire game, Mighty Gorgons.
I voted for them, though Minotaur Kings and Thunderbirds are my favorites, too.

I voted for Mighty Gorgons. It was between them and Minotaur Kings, and the Death Stare equates to an unparalleled damage bonus.

So far I have two Castle, two Fortress, and a Rampart creature in my all-star army. No flyers yet and no speedy creatures either. I wonder how good this army would be in practice.

My army so far is a shooter (Storm Elementals), two flyers (Sprites+Vampire Lords) and two ground pounders (MG+Cerberi).

I think it's a pretty solid line up. But considering the last two levels, maybe I should have taken Grand Elves as lvl 3 instead of Cerberi. I might end up being too weak in ranged damage.

Minotaur Kings for me. Solid stats, and the damage is nice. Thunderbirds would have to be a close second.
