How Is Blood Taste Used?

This card is used for Axie sustainability in combat. When a player chooses to keep their Axie alive for stalling and the like, they can heal back the damage using Blood Taste.

Blood Taste can also be used for poking damage, as the Axie that uses it may heal up while dealing semi-decent damage.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Blood Taste?

Axies that rely on prolonged duels use Blood Taste. A popular Axie type are the “Immortal Plants,” which use a healing/lifesteal mouth body part to beat enemies.

Sometimes, tanks may even use Blood Taste to keep the defenses up for longer.

Pros and Cons of the Blood Taste Card


  • steals enemy HP (deals damage and heals based on damage
  • decent shields for defense


  • relatively low damage
  • hard to pair with normal damage Axies
