Monster Train Wiki

Inferno is a Hellhorned Clan Hellhorned.png Card in Monster Train.


The Scorched Planes are known for frequent firestorms that can rain down at any moment, striking anyone unlucky enough to be caught below. This has made my travels through it particularly short.


Inferno can be a powerful spell card as it can heavily damage, if not one-shot, almost every enemy unit in a single wave, ignoring Status Effects, Damage Shield, and Status Effects when played. The main drawback, the fact that it also damages one's own units, can be mitigated by simply playing the spell on a floor empty on the player side. Alternatively, this card can be used to clear out friendly units, whether to free up capacity (Capacity), activate Extinguish effects, or to replay said units with Endless or Reform.

Playing multiple copies of this card in a turn can clear out entire waves while dealing huge damage against Major Bosses before they enter Relentless. Thus, reducing the cost of this card and giving it Holdover can potentially be an entire wave clear plan on its own. Alternatively, giving it Permafrost may be a good idea if you only afford to take out a particular high priority wave.

Suggested Upgrades[]

Upgrade Description
Upgrade Spell Emberstone.png Inferno is often either a really good card or a really bad card depending on your train layout, and if it's a good card, you want to play it every time you draw it. Bringing down its otherwise difficult-to-afford cost lets you do that.
Upgrade Spell Keepstone.png Inferno can be really strong if you can play it every turn on a floor, decimating most enemies without putting your units in harms' way with correct placement. However, this upgrade requires support to work because of the high ember cost of this card, and applying Keepstone means you can apply one fewer Emberstone on it. If you aren't able to afford playing a holdover card, its holdover property does not work. However, Artifacts like Split Anvil, Lightstone Casing, or a Fel's Remorse or two can make this work.
