Version 0.31: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
The card depicts a dragon whose scales are sloughing off, revealing a sheep underneath.

The degeneration card attempts to polymorph monsters into ones with lower HD. For targets of such valid holiness, it will also afflict them with Malmutate. Undead targets, which decompose rather than shift in form when inflicted with mutagenic energies, will be dazed.

The card can be found in the following decks over these two versions.

0.15 0.16 and beyond




  • Prior to 0.31, polymorphing monsters caused them to heal (often to full health).
  • The Degeneration card was one of 23 cards to be kept when decks were simplified in 0.19.
  • Prior to 0.16, it did not malmutate or daze targets.
  • The Degeneration card was added in 0.15.
