Artifact Cards List Guide – Every Currently Known Card

Check out our list of all the currently known cards from Valve's upcoming game Artifact!

Artifact, Valve's new trading card game, is a fast approaching reality. With some press members getting access to the game, and information coming out quicker and quicker, it's time to take a look at some of what this game has to offer. We're starting to collect a full Artifact card list below. We'll be constantly updating this list as more cards are revealed, so be sure to stay tuned!

Artifact Card Types

Like in most card games there are different card types. Each card type has a specific job or way it can be played. Here's a list of the ones we currently know.

Hero Cards

Hero cards represent the five players that you would typically play with in a game of DOTA 2. You will select five unique hero cards for your deck, each hero has a color, and you can have multiple different colored heroes in your deck. To play a spell card, you will need to have a specific hero in your lane that matches the color of the spell! Hero cards can gain equipment that is purchased with gold after each round. This gold is earned by killing your opponent's heroes and creeps.

Spell Cards

If you've played card games in the past then spell cards should be pretty familiar to you. Usually spells add buffs or do damage to other cards. They also have the ability to summon and create creatures for the battlefield. These concepts seem largely the same in Artifact!

Item Cards

These are cards you can purchase from the Secret Shop and allow you to equip them or buff your hero cards. You are given a chance to shop at the end of each round and you gain gold by killing enemy heroes and creeps!

Artifact Cards List

Here's a full list of the currently known cards from Valve's upcoming card game Artifact! I've created some templates to make up for the poor state of the card art. This isn't official, but something I just punched up a bit so the cards were a bit more legible.
