Axie Infinity is a blockchain-powered turn-based monster battler in which you issue commands for your battle pets by selecting from a pool of Axie Infinity cards. These cards can provide perks and tweaks to your team's attack, with bonuses applied to cards that match the user's type, counter the target's, or both. It's important to understand them all before you challenge someone to a fight.

Our Axie Infinity cards list will go over each and every one of the 100+ cards in the game and how they work in battle. We'll also run through how to get more cards, how to play them, and how to reconfigure the cards your Axies take into a fight.

NFT games are everywhere right now, with Axie Infinity being one of the most popular of the bunch. If you want a MOBA game with an NFT twist, check out our Thetan Arena hero list. And if you'd rather just stay away from the play-to-earn model entirely, Cookie Run: Kingdom codes can get you started in one of the best gacha games around.

What Are Axie Infinite Cards?

Axie Infinity cards are the items used to attack rival players in battle. Each turn, you can lay one card per member of your team, combining them to produce higher-damage attacks or to protect other members of your team. You'll have the choice of four cards each time you take a turn, meaning you can plan whether to play defensively or go on the offensive.

Once you've used an Axie Infinity card, your turn will end. However, cards aren't discarded after each turn, so you can only have a roster of four cards per character in each battle. As such, you'll need to plan strategically, making sure each character's cards are best-equipped to cover all bases during fights.

How Do I Use Axie Infinity Cards?

Using Axie Infinity cards is certainly easier than downloading and setting up the game. Here's how it works:

Once you're in a fight, you'll see your team's cards stacked at the bottom, with each character's cards underneath them. You then have to wait until your turn in battle comes around, before selecting a card to use.

To do this, simply tap the card you like the look of, which will expand it so you can read its details. If you want to use it, tap once more and it'll be played, or click off it to choose a different card.

Keep in mind that most PVP fights will start with someone skipping a few turns. This allows them to build up energy and unleash powerful combos. Patience, planning, and foresight are integral parts of maximising the effectiveness of your Axie Infinity cards, so it's worth having a strategy in mind when constructing your team.

How Do I Change My Axie Infinity Cards?

Since combat is at the core of Axie Infinity, the chances are you'll want more Axie Infinity cards to add to your roster. This isn't too easy to do, as unlike Axies themselves, they cannot be purchased in the marketplace. Instead, you can equip new cards when arranging your team before a battle.

Once you've selected your four Axies for battle, press the Change button above the current card layout, which will let you tweak which cards your team will take into battle.

And that's everything you should need to know about Axie Infinity cards for now. We've covered individual cards, their perks, powers, and how to use them effectively. Armed with that knowledge, you'll be able to take on other players in adorable PvP battles and potentially even make some cash in the process. That's the allure of the pay-to-win blockchain future of gaming.
