Card sounds may differ from in-game as they get updated.
Warcry - Each time a unit or Relic Weapon with Warcry attacks, it grants a permanent bonus to the top-most unit or weapon in your deck. Even if it's a few cards down, you'll get to stack up the bonuses on it over multiple turns.
Contract - You may pay the number in additional power to get its bonus. If you don’t have enough power to pay some or all of the Contract, the remaining balance is applied as “debt” that is paid at the start of the next turn.
Debt - Your available power is spent to pay off Debt. If you can't pay it all, you pay at the start of your next turn.
