One of the features that the development team wanted to implement in this card game was that there was supposed to be no “overpowered card.” Even though it “feels” like that right now to some people. Mostly because these are the first chunk of cards that are considered the basic essence of the game.Which means that most cards tend to alter the statistic numbers, like creature’s stats or tower’s health.Instead of trying to break game rules that at the same time create different gaming mechanics.

But, like any other trading card game, it is inevitable that a few cards stand out from the rest. These cards tend to adapt quickly to the core mechanics and more than often give some advantage in your matches. Taking this into consideration, here are Artifact’s Top 10 Popular Cards that’ll probably cost a bit more in the Steam Market when the game releases.

  1. Annihilation
  2. Axe
  3. Blink Dagger
  4. Drow Ranger
