Carl Griffensteed is a Challenger Card that was first seen and printed in the Grotto Beasts! Trading Card Game. The character is a reference to the Jermaverse character Carl Griffinsteed as seen in the Castle Griffinsteed stream and infamous video.

The Card

Card Effect

When you choose attackers or defenders,
you may discard two cards. If you don't, Carl
Griffinsteed cannot attack or defend until
the end of the turn.

Carl Griffinsteed gains 3 power as long as
you have twenty or more cards in your
discard pile.

Rules and Rulings

  • You must choose to discard the two cards for Carl's card effect before selecting any attackers or defenders.



Written by Game Designer J. Evan Raitt:

There was a lot of back and forth if twenty cards was too much, given that requires more than half of a player's deck to be in the discard pile. To compensate, Carl was given the big 3 power to ensure that the card can at least go toe to toe with nearly every other Challenger, making the discard worth it.


  • Carl's ability was once a potential ability for Demon Lord Zeraxos, with some major tweaks.
