The expansion includes over 70 new cards. That’s 5 less than the last expansion Master Mirror. The expansion adds 10 cards per faction, as well as 10 neutral cards. A list of every new card can be found here.
The new keyword Adrenaline is an interesting addition to the game. It offers the potential for powerful synergy as well as increased survivability. For example, playing a card that has a low adrenaline number with a small hand of cards could give you an advantage. Furthermore, you can still activate an adrenaline card even if playing the card leaves you with a hand lower than the specified number.
