In addition to your various units, your army will also make use of a special deck of cards known as Tactics Cards (together forming a Tactics Deck), representing the various strategies your chosen Faction uses when it goes to war.
Each Tactics Card lists the following information:
Your Tactics Deck is constructed of 7 different Faction Tactics Cards, determined by your chosen Faction, and 3 different Commander Tactics cards, determined by your Army Commander. There are 2 copies of each card, combining to form a 20-card Tactics Deck. You will begin the game with a hand of 3 Tactics cards, drawing more as the game goes on.
Playing Tactics Cards
Each Tactics Card lists a specific trigger at the top, showing when the card can be played. Once a card is played, it is placed in your deck’s discard pile, faceup. The discard pile is open information for all players.
