Monster Train Wiki

Improved Firebox is a Clanless Clan Clanless.png Artifact in Monster Train.


I constructed the train with what I had at the time, with hopes to expand later on with what I’d scavenge on the way. To make sure the creatures of Hell would all fit, I had to sacrifice the size of the furnaces. No more!


Improved Firebox gives you +7Ember on turn 1 of every battle, almost assuring you can play every card in hand on that turn. It can be good if you have ways to fully utilize it.

Improved Firebox allows for a more consistent turn 1, which is a reasonably good benefit by itself. It can be powerful with X Cost-Cost cards and units and spells with high Ember costs, but this strategy is usually not terribly consistent because you cannot rely on drawing specific cards on turn 1.

You can have a deck with just one Banner Unit with a high cost to play such as Shadowsiege or Consumer of Crowns, guaranteeing that you draw that unit on turn 1 thanks to the way Banner Units work, which puts this Artifact to good use, though it is fairly rare to achieve this.

Improved Firebox gets quite a bit better with The Last Divinity (DLC), as the Seekstone becomes available, letting you upgrade an X Cost-Cost card with it to consistently get a powerful benefit from Improved Firebox every combat.

Improved Firebox is also quite strong when paired with Lost Luggage (DLC only) or The Unbroken Horn, both of which make it easier to connect the Ember this provides to a card that needs it.
