Iron Wave is an Attack card for the Ironclad. It deals 5 damage and grants 5 Icon Block.png Block at the same time. As a Common card, it can be found as a reward after combats. Upon upgrade, it gains 2 damage and 2 Icon Block.png Block for a total of 7 each.

Due to the fact that Iron Wave is an attack that grants Icon Block.png Block, it is effective in dispatching Gremlin Nob, who punishes using skills to Icon Block.png Block, as well as managing the Hex status from Chosen. Iron Wave will also count as an attack for relics such as Shuriken.png Shuriken or Kunai.png Kunai whose effects are determined based on attacks played.

Because this card's values alone are no larger than a Strike or Defend, it may become less relevant as the player enters Acts III and IV. However, it is by no means a bad card if drafted in Act I.

If the enemy is Icon Vulnerable.png Vulnerable, the base card does 7 damage.
