Returning Mechanics Edit

Warp Warp:
You can play this from the top of your deck.
The Fall of Argenport adds 18 new cards with Warp, including the 'End' cycle of Legendary spells (such as End of the BarrelEnd of the Barrel). Warp previously appeared only on Icon req F Fire and Icon req T Time cards as a Praxis mechanic, but is spread across all five Factions in The Fall of Argenport
Nightfall Night:
When you start a turn at Night, draw an additional card and take 1 damage.

Nightfall:
The first Nightfall card played in a turn makes it Night and extends it by a turn for each player.
The Fall of Argenport adds 10 new cards that trigger Nightfall. 3 of these are units which are buffed at Night (such as Lethrai DarkstalkerLethrai Darkstalker).
Transmute Transmute X:
When you reach X maximum power before playing this, it transforms into a new card.
Transmute was previously seen only in the 5-card 'Monument' cycle from The Empty Throne. The Fall of Argenport adds a new cycle of transmuting power cards called 'Standards', which transform into spells that are more powerful versions of cards from The Empty Throne.[3]

Other Themes Edit

'Spells Matter'
Some The Fall of Argenport cards get buffed, gain battle skills, or trigger other effects when you play a spell. Between the Spellcraft weapons and a cycle of units that let you discard a card to create spellsLearned Herbalist, quite a few non-spell cards let you trigger these effects as well.
'Tribal' Radiant and Wisp interactions.
Wisps and Radiants have always had a thematic relationship, The Fall of Argenport expands on these interactions with units that buff, replay, and give abilities to units of the other type.
'Create and draw' tokens.
Many of The Fall of Argenport's token-creating cards, such as WurmcallingWurmcalling and ManufactureManufacture, have you draw the units rather than playing them directly.

While this means you still have to pay power to play them, they benefit from Inspire bonuses or may be swapped by a Merchant for a card in your Market.
