Many cards have one or more traits listed at the top of the text box and printed in bold italics.
- Traits have no inherent effects on the game. Instead some card abilities reference cards that possess (or lack) specific traits. E.g. Ever Vigilant wants you to have the Aerial trait to be played.
- Traits are not considered to be part of the card’s printed text box for the purpose of card abilities. E.g. Mind Control and Karma do no blank out the traits.
