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

Winchest Cargo is part of the cargo cycle of 3-faction spell cards that can draw a Sigil of their factions. If its player has 2 influence of each of a cargo's factions, it transforms into a contraband which draws a random card from its factions.

The five cargo are counterparts to the five-card chants cycle, later released in Echoes of Eternity to support the remaining 3-faction combinations which did not have cargo.

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