The top tier cards in the game of slay the spire are a hotly debated topic. Some people claim that there is no such thing as an “S-Tier” while others argue it’s obvious which cards dominate any deck, regardless of what they’re trying to do. The truth lies somewhere in between: there are some clear winners when you want to go all out with buffs and items, and some great choices if you’re looking for a more balanced approach. We’ll take a look at both approaches here!

What makes an S-tier card?
There are a few common factors that make for cards worth considering as part of your “S” tier. Any card with +Attack and +Health is integral to any deck in the game, because it will help you take out enemies much more quickly while also giving you more health to contend against them. Likewise, most decks need some way to generate resources (either by drawing extra cards or killing monsters), so anything that provides either one of those things should be considered when selecting your top tier cards! There may not be many examples of this type in slay the spire currently but there’s no doubt we’ll see new additions soon enough! In addition, any card which buffs other cards you’re using has the potential to be considered as an “S” tier card, and this is one of the most interesting aspects of slay the spire.
Slay the spire’s current meta is dictated by its best cards, so it makes sense to start with those!
nd +There are a few obvious S-Tier cards in slay the spire currently: The Handmaid and Frostflow Lighthouse. These two provide buffing effects that will greatly strengthen your deck while also providing additional resources or protection for you to survive longer against tougher enemies. In addition, they don’t require any other specific cards outside of their own class (i.e., no need for an attack card if you’re using The Handmaid). Where this gets really interesting is when we consider how these buffs interact with each other! A well placed Frostflow Lighthouse can grant cold immunity to your entire party, while also providing a hefty amount of armor that will make it tough for enemies to kill you. Similarly, The Handmaid can provide buffing effects like health regeneration or increased attack damage—both things that Frostflow Lighthouse could benefit from!
nd +There are other great cards in slay the spire with S-Tier potential: Demented Whispers and Mythical Markings. These two both generate card draws which is always useful when deck building because drawing more cards means having greater variety of options at hand.
Demented Whispers has the additional bonus of giving up to three empty slots in your current deck (cards/attacks). This helps immensely if you’re trying to create an agile but powerful deck.
Mythical Markings isn’t quite as strong but it doe give up to three empty slots in your current deck (cards/attacks). This is a great card for players who are struggling with building their decks because they can take any six cards from the top of their library and put them into their currently existing deck, creating an instant power boost that will make all those other cards more powerful!
I’m not sure what to say. I really need this fever to go away so I can get back on the horse and make a tier list. It’s been over a week since my last one, which is way too long in my opinion. These people have me out here looking like an idiot!
The best cards are often the ones that can be used to break the game. They’re powerful, versatile and have a huge impact on gameplay. These cards are known as S-Tier cards in Slay The Spire. But what makes them so good? In this blog post I will explore some of these reasons, along with discussing some examples of these types of card for players who may not know about them yet!
Slay the Spire is a challenging deckbuilding game. It’s also one of my favorite games to play! Last week I did a blog post about what Tier list are and how they’re ranked. Read here if you want more information on that: slay-the-spire-card-tier-list–s/article -rankings/. In this article, I’ll be talking specifically about tier lists for S cards which will provide an understanding of why these cards are so good in Slay The Spire.”
