These abilities trigger when you resolve a spell.

As of right now (the beta), Imbue is not a keyword. It does, however, come up with results when you search for it; we can infer from this that it was considered at one point, and may become a keyword in the future. It currently means "when you cast a spell, (do X)".

Karma's Level Up effect allows her to cast any spell twice, effectively doubling the value generated from any-one spell. Use this effect to double-tap problems with removal, or to double-buff an ally.

Starlit Seer grants the top ally in your deck +1/+1 when you cast a spell. Cast a lot of cheap spells to quickly buff a singular unit, or space them off so everyone gets a taste.

Assembly Bot representing a growing threat in a spell-heavy deck, wherein it gains +1/+1 when each of your spells are cast. Play lots of spells and watch it grow!

Puffcap Peddler spreads Poison Puffcaps on your opponent's deck with each spell cast, creating worsening headaches (and Nexus damage).
