"Upgradable" is an unofficial term used to refer to cards that transform themselves into a more powerful version under the conditions listed.

While no official keyword is used to denote the ability, precisely the same text is included on all of the Spellstone cards from the Kobolds & Catacombs expansion and Galakrond cards from Descent of Dragons with the text "([Do something] to upgrade)", as well as the Scheme cards from the Rise of Shadows expansion with the text "(Upgrades each turn!)".

Upgradable cards from Kobolds & Catacombs and Descent of Dragons will transform into stronger versions of itself when the conditions in the text is met, up to twice. Upgradable cards from Rise of Shadows have its value increment at the end of each turn while in your hand.
