I noticed that some cards such as
Cut the Strings state:
Deal 2 damage to a unit you control
While other cards such as
Blood Transfer say:
Deal 2 damage to a target unit you control.
The FAQ says the term target is:
: A term that is used to identify that the effect of a spell, ability or dice power is directly affecting something (including, but not limited to, an alteration spell, a unit, a player, or a Phoenixborn).
But I'm still sure why the game uses the term
target in some instances but not others. Is there a difference between a "target unit" and a "unit"?
