I see you there, shaking you and chewing your fingers. You haven't stacked cards in a while, eh? This latest expansion of Monster Train no longer does it for you, right?
Tainted Grail: Conquest was released this week, a roguelike deck building game set in a dark and fantastic takeoff of Arthurian mythology. It is a hybrid based on the history of roguelike and RPG, with an emphasis on roguelike. Something like your Slay the Spiers, but with a richer story behind it.
Much of the appeal of Tainted Grail is that you combine nine classes with hundreds of cards and passive skills to make your own combo each race. As you go from race to race, save the NPCs in the world or reclaim resources to build the village you venture into each time; this is your meta-element that leads to some progression running.
For my part, I like the weird monsters they have in this game. What is this, some kind of crystalline crab? Funky whale monster … what? A trunk with a face? I don't like any of them per se but I really like looking at them in theory.
