Ladder info Ladder

Some cards can be both level-independent and weak/strong when under/overleveled. Example: A lower-level Ice Golem doesn't kill Skarmy, so it's 'Weak'. However, in other aspects such as tanking, it works perfectly fine on lower levels.

Level-independent

Cards that are good even on lower level. Their key stats are not influenced by the level too much and no key interactions are level-dependent.

Knight Ice Golem Prince

Weak when underleveled

Cards that are particularly weak if you have them on lower level. Their key interactions with some cards are changed when they are level or two below the other card.

Minion Horde Ice Golem
