Monster Train Wiki

Frozen Lance is a Stygian Guard Clan Stygian Guard.png Card in the Base Crown1.png Starter Deck. You begin with 3-5 of them depending on your Covenant Rank.


An ancient relic of a time before the Covenant. When I first came to the Stygian Sea, every resident of the Ring carried one to aid in their defense of the reigning Titan. There still lies some magic within the surrounding ice.


Frozen Lance is a very weak starter card. 6 damage, in the context of front line enemies, is not a lot of damage, even early in the game. It is therefore a very high purge priority. Even Surgestone, while improving its damage output, does not make it a good card later in the game - the main benefit of that upgrade is that it allows you to get rid of it more easily.

It does trigger Incant abilities which are common on the Stygian Guard, and does not require a target to be cast, which can push it just below Train Steward in terms of purge priority.
