"You may play this unit from your discard pile as if it was in your hand."
Would this mean that it can be used for all force struggles and edge battles as well? Since you play those cards from your hand as well and the card text doesn´t specifically mention that this ability is reserved for the unit version itself.
I would say no, you'll note in the rulebook when on page 19 whenever it talks about cards in the edge battle it says 'place' which is distinct from 'play' as defined in the rulebook on page 13

Play describes an action where a player pays the resource
cost of a card in hand and transfers it into play (for a unit
card or an enhancement card) or resolves its effects and
then discards it (for an event card). (See “In Play and Out of
Play” on page 27).]

Right you are Darksbane. Took the question to Nate and he confirmed excactly that. Which is what I suspected was the intention all along even if I did put too much in the wording
