Cards management is tough in Loop Hero. There are many cards on the deck and it is not easy to remember the combo effect of each card. Deck Building Menu tells which all cards are unlocked and from here you can organize them. At the start, you can pick one from the three available paths. Play as a warrior who slays demons or becomes a world builder. Or just play as a city planner. All rely on your hero class and the types of cards you pick. Killing more demons unlocks more cards, but your hero will also need a health boost. This where the placement of the right cards plays a big role in survival.

Remember placing cards also add challenges in front of your hero. So do not overload your deck with unnecessary cards. Every challenge has a reward, if the hero can complete it you will unlock new things in the game. The objective must be survival as well as defending against the enemies.

You can experiment with card combos, for example placing meadows that will heal your hero. But placing meadows on different tile unlocks blooming meadows that offer extra health points to the hero. When you are playing cards keep an eye on the bar on the left corner of the screen. It will fill up which indicates what’s coming up. Will, there be a higher number of enemies spawn in the morning or evening.
