Corrupted is a keyword that appears on units. It was introduced as one of Echoes of Eternity's defining mechanics, thematically representing Eremot's corrupting influence on the people of Xulta.[1]

Each unit with Corrupted also has a Summon ability. When the unit dies, a related "Shade" token unit is played. From Eternal's in-game glossary:

When a unit with Corrupted dies, a 0 strength Nightmare Shade is played in its place. Shades have the ability to sacrifice themselves by paying their corrupted cost to play the starting unit's Summon ability. Shades lose 1 health at the end of each of your turns.

Find more units with Corrupted in its category page. Find their Shades in the Shade category.
