To power the Constructs of the Crucible, the Umbra Shroud feeds them excavated fuel. If fed mined Ember, the furnaces go into overdrive, working doubly hard at the cost of even more Ember. This discovery was crucial in the construction of the furnaces within the Boneshaker.
Perils of Production gives you and Rage now at the expense of Emberdrain that will drain your next turn - if the target of Perils of Production lives. As such, it is often a good idea to target Morsel units with this spell, as if they are Eaten you will not suffer the loss next turn.
Perils of Production can be used as a temporary booster to go with expensive or -cost cards, though it can be rather weak if not aligned with them.
Not only is this a cheap source of Rage on a unit, it enables you to play other powerful cards that inflict Emberdrain on your units as a drawback while not compromising your ability to play spells later, such as Immortal Trade, Furnace Tap, and Void Binding.
|Keepstone can be a run-defining upgrade on Perils of Production. Once Perils of Production is drawn, play it every turn, and you will still have 3 Ember each turn after playing this card, since the Emberdrain debuff it causes triggers at the start of your turn, before cards are played, and no matter how much Emberdrain is on your units, your cannot be drained below 0. With 2 copies of this card with Holdover, you can have 6 per turn, allowing you to play cards such as Shadowsiege, though be mindful that this limits you to 3 cards per turn without extra card draw.|
|Freezestone can be effective on Perils of Production in some decks, making it easier to line it up with a high- or -cost card or on a turn after Immortal Trade, Furnace Tap, and Void Binding where you need in a pinch. The latter scenario is quite relevant if you are going for a mostly 0 deck with Emberdrain cards, but a key card does not cost 0.|
