* Stun, Keyword Lifesteal.svg Lifesteal, Keyword Ephemeral.svg Ephemeral, Challenger
* Keyword Elusive.svg Elusive, Keyword Tough.svg Tough

Keywords are named effects that cards can have, either innately or given (temporary)/granted (permanent) to them, or are are actions that can take place. Some keywords are verbs that are used as part of card text, either as specific Keyword Trigger.svg triggers, or as actions that can be done, and some are adjectives that have discrete effects on a card.

This can not be done if there is an active Spell card.svg spell stack, although a Keyword Fast.svg fast spell can start a spell stack on the same turn an attack is declared. After the attack is declared, the player on defense can declare units to block, and/or what Spells to cast, if any.

Battling units Keyword Strike.svg strike each other or the LoR Blue Nexus.pngLoR Red Nexus.png Nexus, depending on whether there is a unit across from them or not. If the attacking unit's blocker is removed from the battlefield before they attack and the attacker doesn't have Keyword Overwhelm.svg Overwhelm, they don't strike.

Spell card.svg Spells can be Keyword Play.svg played on the same turn a block is committed. If any blocking units are committed or any spells are played, the attacking player can respond with their own spells, with normal spell response rules following. After both players have passed, the Keyword Strike.svg striking starts.

If the attacking unit's committed blocker was removed from the battlefield/from blocking before they attack and the attacker doesn't have Keyword Overwhelm.svg Overwhelm, they don't strike. If they weren't blocked, they'll strike the enemy LoR Blue Nexus.pngLoR Red Nexus.png Nexus.

Keyword Level Up.png Level Up

EditLevel Up is a keyword that causes a Champion card.svg champion card to transform into another card instantly, playing an animation, keeping all effects applied to it and damage taken and counting as the same unit.

Each Level Up has a corresponding trigger condition and the transformation occurs instantly when the condition is met and a copy of the card is in play, and sometimes another specified effect will occur simultaneously.

For example, Level Up: I have attacked twice. Create x card in hand. would cause the card to transform after it commits a second Keyword Attack.svg attack and it would create x card in hand instantly.
The transformation persists for the remainder of the game. All collectable champions possess this keyword and most will only level up once.

Spell card.svg Spell: Damage dealt to a Unit by a spell with Overwhelm over what should kill it is dealt to the enemy Nexus.

Both:

  • If the unit being affected by Overwhelm has been removed, all of the damage that would have been dealt to it is instead dealt to the enemy Nexus.
  • If the damage taken by the unit is fully mitigated (eg.

Different to Keyword Imbue.svg casting, which refers to when the spell's effect happens. Spells will usually require that their condition to cast (See Keyword Fizzle.png Fizzle) be met at the time they are played, to play, even if it would be met after the spells before it on the Stack cast.

Some cards have an effect that must happen if they are to be Played. These will happen when the card is dragged to the board, before any play effect happens. If the condition cannot be fulfilled by not being able to perform an effect, then the card will not be Played.
