For most matches, the game board is bisected into two separate lanes. Creatures placed in one lane can only attack other creatures in that lane, although this doesn't limit card abilities.

There are over twenty different lane types, each with a unique effect.

The standard setup for a match is for each lane to be four cards wide, with the left lane having no special rules and for the right lane to be a Shadow lane. Different lane types (and sometimes sizes) can appear in the Story mode matches and in Solo Arena and Versus Arena.

Lane Types[edit]

Not all lanes have a special effect. The lane types are indicated by a glowing icon at each end of the game board.
