Slay the spire is an early access deckbuilding roguelike…wait stop where are you going it’s good I promise! You pick 1 of 3 characters and try to climb all 3 floors to the top of the spire, with monsters and traps keeping you from your goal.

“The remaining soldier of the Ironclads. Sold his soul to harness demonic energies.” - in game description
The ironclad is the first character you have available, most of his decks end up revolving around combos to either boost his strength very high and hit things very hard or make himself an impenetrable wall of block that body slams fools. His starting relic heals you for 6 after each fight, this is really good. Sometimes will dropkick you forever.
“A deadly huntress from the foglands. Eradicates foes with daggers and poisons” - in game description
The silent is the second character and is very much the rogue to the ironclad’s fighter archetype. Most of her cards revolve around cycling through her deck/drawing and playing lots of low cost cards. Her starting relic draws 2 additional cards on the first turn of each combat. Sometimes turns you into a walking poison bomb.
“A combat automaton which became self-aware. Ancient technology allows the manipulation of Orbs.” - in game description
ORBS. If the other 2 classes are the fighter and the rogue, the defect is undoubtedly the wizard of the 3. His cards grant him special orbs with passive bonuses that are consumed for powerful active effects as he channels more of them. His cards either focus on cycling through lots of orbs or recurring 0-cost cards many times over for big damage. Sometimes will lightning strike you and anything in the vicinity.
