Cards are referred to as dead if they are drawn at a time when they can't be used, or can't be used effectively. Some cards, like CursesCurse.jpg and the majority of Victory cards, are always or almost always dead; they have little or no function during gameplay other than to fill your hand with unplayable cards. However, cards that are usually playable may be described as "dead" under some circumstances as well:

A related phenomenon is the terminal collision, when you have two (or more) terminal Actions in hand but can only play one of them—in effect, you must choose one of the two cards to be dead for this turn.
