Aura of Corruption is a Shadow card that causes all cards played within the aura to inflict damage to friendly and enemy entities within the area instead of its normal effect. This effect can be used as a surprise gotcha to unaware players, but more often it is used to as a way to quickly convert power into large amounts of area-effect damage.
Damage is highly variable and is the product of three factors: the power cost of the card played, the Era of the card, and a set multiplier, which begins at 5 and increases by one for each upgrade. For instance, with no upgrades, playing a 100-power First Era card causes 500 damage (50 x 1 x 5). Playing a 100-power Second Era card causes 1000 damage (100 x 2 x 5). Fully upgraded, playing a Fourth Era card that costs 300 Power can yield a devastating 9600 damage (300 x 4 x 8).
Offensively, avoid using this in an army rush where the opposition will be trying to play cards to replace lost units and structures. Instead, run in a fast-moving scout, cast Aura, and then play out as many high power/era cards as you can before your scout expires.
Defensively, it can be used to deter an enemy from playing cards to reinforce an attacking army. However, it could be then turned against you if the army withdraws or the attacker is willing to sacrifice their units.
