Tw3 gwent deck Skellige

The Skellige Gwent deck, although originally planned in 2014 as part of the base game [1], wasn't introduced until the Blood and Wine expansion pack. The inspiration for this deck comes from Skellige's clans and legends. The base deck is received from Count Monnier and for collecting all cards there is achievement called "I Have a Gwent Problem".

  • Special - 2 random Unit cards from the graveyard are placed on the battlefield at the start of the third round.

Strategy Edit

While capable of both swarm and Tight-Bond, the deck focuses on resilience. The faction ability only takes effect on round 3, the leader card either restores all graveyard cards to deck (for potential interaction) or halves the effect of adverse weather cards, and one card begins with 0 score but becomes a hero card with 11 score when removed/advancing into the next round. This deck excels at attrition, but lacks the double-edged risk of, say, the Nilfgaardian deck.

The deck possesses 2 unique features, each introducing potential advantages, with the first tapping into the powers of the default leader card.

Cerys is a hero with the swarm ability, summoning Shield-Maidens who in turn possess Tight-Bond. When fortunate enough to possess both 2+ Shield Maidens and Cerys in the starting hand, Shield Maidens can be used on an early round, then restored to deck via the default leader card and summoned by Cerys in a subsequent round.

Berserker feature hinges upon units capable of turning into stronger, row-buffing/Tight-Bond variants when triggered by the user's mutation-inducing cards, but this feature places rather significant reliance on luck.

From a general standpoint, the deck can be played very conventionally, using solely brute force. With potent Tight-Bond cards on both close-combat and siege rows, the deck also benefits from swarm cards on the ranged row. This approach works best with King Bran leader card to counter potential debuff cards played by the other side. Under this approach, Cerys is a VERY nice addition (10+4*(1+200%)*3=46 on an empty board) but not the focus of the strategy.

With solid line-ups on all three rows, unique ability to withstand adverse weather and round 3 benefits, the deck has no vulnerability save a high score cap reliant on luck, for the deck has no spy card.
