Strategy Edit

Cargo should be used primarily as a way to find a power card from the deck throughout most of the game. Getting a random card is far less important than making sure that every card in a deck can be played. To prevent Cargo from being transmuted, players should account for the possibility of drawing Cargo when sequencing their power in the first few turns.

Notes Edit

Auralian Cargo is part of the cargo cycle of 3-faction spell cards that can grab a Sigil early in the game, or transform into contraband later.

The first five, released in Defiance, are: Auralian Cargo, Ixtun Cargo, Jennev Cargo, Kerendon Cargo, and Winchest Cargo. Cargo for the remaining 3-faction combinations are yet to be created.

The cargo cards were revealed in a Defiance spoiler-season mechanic announcement by DWD.[1]
