Axie Infinity Cards: What You Need To Know

Axie Infinity is a game where players can earn tokens by contributing to the game’s ecosystem. The game uses non-fungible tokens, which means players can earn cryptocurrencies and other assets while playing. This happens through Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) and Smooth Love potions (SLP) that players earn in-game. The game lets players raise, battle, and trade their pets, called Axies. Players can customize their pets with various statistics and abilities. Players gain these by using Axie infinity cards. Many of these cards deal significant damage and are useful for defending, setting up, and applying buff and debuffs. Players must know these cards’ effects and combos to improve their win rate.

Different Types of Axie Infinity Cards & Classes

Axies can belong to one of nine classes. Similar to Pokemon, each of its moves and cards can also belong to a class. Each class is divided into body parts such as the horn, mouth, tail, and back. Varieties of Axie infinity cards exist for the different body parts and all serve different purposes. The nine different classes of Axies are Plant, Dusk, Aquatic, Bird, Dawn, Beast, Reptile, Bug, and Mech:

  • Dusk, Plant, and Reptile trump over Bird, Aquatic, and Dawn
  • Dawn, Bird, and Aquatic trump over Beast, Mech, and Bug
  • Mech, Beast, and Bug trump over Plant, Reptile, and Dusk

From this triangle, you can see which classes can do well against certain Axies. By having a class advantage over an Axie with a different class, you can protect your Axie.
