Basic Units are the standard combat units used in Gateway. They are primarily used to engage other units and to pass through the Gateway. Basic Unit cards are brown in color, and can be used by any color of deck. Basic units must be "paid for" by using Lloan; cost is listed on individual cards. Basic Units differ from Special Units in that Special Units can only be used by their own color.
