Improvements are a card type that apply a unique persistent effect to the lane they are attached to. Currently, all improvements are cross-lane cards, able to be played into any of the three lanes.

  • Improvements are not units, creeps, or spells.
  • Improvements do not occupy combat positions.
  • Improvements last until they are destroyed by effects that specifically destroy improvements.
  • Each lane can have a maximum of 16 improvements. Placing a 17th improvement will destroy a random existing improvement.
