    So i made a monster weather deck and monster devour deck, and am enjoying it.

    Any good/interesting deck builds for NR or some other faction? that are relatively easy to assemble?

    Is there going to be a wipe once game goes open beta? or full release?

    I dont mind the game, but it totally lacks the TGC/card game factor for me. It feels like a board game.

    Mindgameiest game so far. Fucking spies. He had like 5 cards which should have given him the card advantage but 4 Clan An Warriors Warcried made the push with the last card.

    Gwent at a high level is all about the bluffing.

    Last deck I played before I took a break was a Scoiatel ambush / buff and the mindgames you could play with that were insane.

    General idea of the deck is to play a bronze unit that buffs an ambush card in your hand on round one. You then try to carry that buffed unit over to round three so that you have a 20+ power uninteractive win condition.

    The mindfuckery comes in round two though. If you have balls then you can play your ambush unit after winning the first round and the opponent has to decide whether you are playing a 1 power ciarian to get card advantage or if you are playing a 20+ power touruvial. Often you can still play the ciarian and the opponent will throw cards at it to make sure they don't lose and you go into round 3 with a huge card advantage and a prettty much guaranteed win

      Spoiler:


    The second combo of this deck is buffed ambush unit -> operator (copy it) -> play both copies -> use Morenn to kill your opponents copy.

    Yeah, apparently he Zoltaned and killed the grave hag and it was an exact draw.

    This tournament has been really close and highly entertaining

    Yeah, that was so good.

    Its devastating when NR medics do that to you in person though. They used to be even worse and had the ability to hit silver cards before they were nerfed.

    I'm a total noob with this game (only played to like lvl 7 or something), but gotta say this is easily the most entertaining CCG to watch on twitch based on tonight's stream so far. Good shit (even though I understand like 30% of it)

    I was actually quite sceptical about how good this was going to be. Gwent is fantastically watchable and is a great game to spectate

    Glad I was proven very wrong.

    If you are even a little bit interested in CCGs or esports I would advise watching the series between noxious and ppd, because that shit was epic
