Card sounds may differ from in-game as they get updated.
Ambush - An ambush unit can be played at the end of the enemy player's turn, or any time they are attacking you. If you played against a Killer or Relic Weapon attack, an Ambush unit will jump in the way to block that attack.
Endurance - Units with Endurance ready at the start of each players turn, so they can attack and still be ready to block during the enemy turn. Additionally, they are completely immune to enemy stun and exhaust effects.
Killer - A unit with Killer can make one special attack directly against an enemy unit. This can be done the turn it's played, and can target any unit, regardless of Flying, Aegis, or other special abilities.
Pledge - On your first turn, a card with Pledge can be played as a Sigil.
