Card Description
Deal additional damage equal to
Tar Blades in hand

Tar Blade is an item players may accumulate over a run. It is a starting card in every Shademancer deck.


The Tar Blade has great damage potential early in a run, but the damage it deals is inconsistent and it requires drawing many Tar Blades (instead of drawing potentially more useful cards). Like Scrappy Swords and Gearhammer, Tar Blades are not very useful in the endgame, but unlike them, the Tar Blade actively scales with the quantity of cards in the player's deck. Adding new cards or removing Tar Blades with the Muncher or Consuming them makes every remaining Tar Blade weaker on average, as fewer Tar Blades are likely to be drawn in a single hand. Make sure to have something that can make up the damage.

A Tar Blade card counts itself when calculating how much damage to deal. For instance, if there is only one Tar Blade in hand, it will deal 1 damage when played.
