Burn is an unplayable Status card. Burns can be added to your draw pile or discard pile during a game by some enemies such as the Orb Walker. Unlike other Status cards, Burn does have an upgraded version. Burn+ is created by the Hexaghost boss as part of several of its attacks.
Burn deals damage to you immediately upon ending your turn. As Burn deals damage instead of inflicting loss of life directly, it can be blocked. Only Burn cards in your hand at the end of the turn will deal damage to you, so if you can remove it from your hand before the end of turn (Perhaps by discarding or exhausting it), it will have no effect.
