Newly formed, this Animus is no longer protected by its steel armor, making it quicker and deadlier. It is possessed by the soul of the Wildwood and the Channelers who guard it, often making my conversations with it obtuse and pointless.
Animus of Speed is a solid damage-dealing unit that wants to be behind other units, much like Horned Warrior. Compared to Horned Warrior, Animus of Speed has -1 and -5 but has the Quick affix (and is also in a different clan). So it is justifiable to take Animus of Speed simply for the damage if that is what your setup requires.
It is quite hard to use the Quick that Animus of Speed has, as 25 is well short of damage thresholds required to kill front line enemies, and Quick does not do much if Animus of Speed is unable to kill. It can still get some occasional utility if Animus of Speed is placed on upper floors and allies on lower floors, or spells, are able to soften up the front line enemies first. A few setups may be able to scale Animus of Speed to the point where it can kill front line enemies, but this will likely take several turns. Finally, Quick attacks can be useful if you have ways to manipulate enemy positioning, such as Vine Grasp or Cursed Vines.
