Affinity is a feature that affects any card from the Renegade edition and beyond, enabling them to have slightly different traits and thus creating two types of the same card.

They effectively modify some aspect of a card to make it align more towards one element, adding increased strategic value to a card that would normally be more mundane.

A prime example is the Nomad Card Icon.png Nomad which can have either a red or green affinity, which alters its Company passive. Affinities are not set in stone on their effects however, as some affinities provide effects that don't make sense with their actual element.

Affinities come in four types, indicated by a respectively colored orb in the center of the card's right frame. Additionally, the part of the card indicating its power cost and orb requirements is having a similarly colored overlay, and affinity specific abilities have recolored icons as shown below.

Infused

Fire Affinities (Card Icon Active Affinity Fire.pngCard Icon Passive Affinity Fire.pngCard Icon Godspell Affinity Fire.pngCard Icon Autocast Affinity Fire.png Infused) typically benefit a card in some offensive manner, usually by increasing damage output or providing some damage-boosting effect.


Blessed

Frost Affinities (Card Icon Active Affinity Frost.pngCard Icon Passive Affinity Frost.pngCard Icon Godspell Affinity Frost.pngCard Icon Autocast Affinity Frost.png Blessed) typically benefit a card in a defensive manner, typically by providing damage reduction effects or shields.


Gifted

Nature Affinities (Card Icon Active Affinity Nature.pngCard Icon Passive Affinity Nature.pngCard Icon Godspell Affinity Nature.pngCard Icon Autocast Affinity Nature.png Gifted) typically benefit a card in a restorative or controlling manner, often by providing some form of healing or crowd control effects.


Tainted

Shadow Affinities (Card Icon Active Affinity Shadow.pngCard Icon Passive Affinity Shadow.pngCard Icon Godspell Affinity Shadow.pngCard Icon Autocast Affinity Shadow.png Tainted) typically provide a card with a risk/reward trait, often in the form of making a sacrifice or taking a risk to get a much stronger effect.

Trivia

There are some cards that specifically interact with other cards based on their affinities.
