Slay the Spire Wiki

Ascender's Bane is a Curse that you receive in your starting deck at Ascension levels 10 and higher.

In combat, it works in the same way as Clumsy; being both Unplayable and Ethereal, it will Exhaust itself at the end of your turn.

Similarly to Necronomicurse, Ascender's Bane cannot be removed in any way; however, it can be exhausted during combat. Omamori.png Omamori will only negate the copy of Ascender's Bane if it is duplicated. Neow cannot remove Ascender's Bane at the start of the game, nor can the Wheel of Change remove it.
