Inhouse Tournament #2 – Completed!

We just wrapped up our second inhouse and it went really well.  We are excited to announce that KingChezz won!  It was a ton of fun, everyone really learned a lot.  Here were the rules: Each participant must build 4 decks from 4 different LEADERS.   You may use the same faction. Opponents will be able to ban, in secret, a chosen enemy deck at the beginning of each game. Once the players have each banned an enemy deck, they will choose 1 out of their 3 remaining decks to use for their first match. Winning decks can’t be used to play another match, while losing ones may be used again or swapped out for a different one. Here is a link to the brackets!

Season 3: Seventeen (17) Members reach GM

Season 3 was such a great experience for our community.  We have grown to almost 100 members and everyone is working closely to help each other reach their goals.  We had seventeen (17) members of the community reach Grand Master, bringing our total members on the pro ladder to almost 50!  Here is what the founder had to say, “I am so proud of this community and everything we have accomplished so far, and I am excited about what we will be doing over the course of the next season!” – iaPhiN. We have successfully held two inhouse tournaments and we have a new format coming to our next one! We will be releasing a podcast, webcast on stream, additional weekly content on our website…

Deck Guide: Queens’ Consume

Craving some more Monster in your life?  Tzunami piloted a really fun deck and you should check it out! The main gameplan is easy to explain. We want to copy as many Nekkers in Round 1 as possible and buff them with our consumers and win Round 3 with a two or three card combo.   Sounds easy but in fact there are two problems: First you need a Nekker on your hand and second you need a Nekker Warrior to duplicate it. To maximize our chances nearly the whole deck is build around these two cards. Marching Orders will get you wheter a She-Troll or a Slyzard which both saves your core cards. She-Troll wheter gets you a Nekker or consumes a Rotfiend which grant…

New Player Information Guide

New Player Information Guide – This guide is designed for all those new players who do not understand what you’re talking about when discussing topics such as archetypes and the differences between them.  Let’s start by saying that an archetype can be defined as a bunch of decks, which while playing cards and different factions have the same strategy.  Obviously there are decks that do not fall into the 3 archetypes but these are the main ones. Simplifying the different playable archetypes in gwent you can get to identify 3 main: • Value Decks • Control Decks • Engine Decks Let’s try to see the main differences between the 3: DECK VALUE: A striking example is the dwarf deck of the scoia’tael that is dominating the…

Deck Guide: Boonlight Dagon

Do you like Warewolfs?  Then you need to check out this deck that Movius was piloting to GM. Here is what Movius has to say about it!  Yes, the moonlight archetype already exist, but how much of them have you met in ladder? 1, 2? Did the list really work or not? Nonono, trust me that one work, and really good imo. A little preamble about the card moonlight, my deck use this card mostly (ever) as BOON, only as boon, why? Casue is way more stronger than hazard, i’ve tried making a deck with hazard moon and about moving enemy into it, didn’t work. Boon instead is like having a staple clime on 1-2-3 of your row, usually not answerable. The most played deck…

Deck Guide: Tempo Xavier

Merry Christmas!  Here is a deck that our all of us have been using with GREAT success!  We had 6 people hit GM with this and many other climb hundreds of rank.  WowItsMatt piloted it and hit GM first! The general strategy for this deck is to push R1 for the win vs most decks, bleed R2 and play a 2 to 4 card R3 depending on the opponent and exactly what cards you have in hand. I will usually hold back a pair of finishing plays going into round 3 (some combination of Barclay Els, Hattori and Xavier Moran generally do the trick). Ferdek added that holding back Brover into Hattori (which he will mulligan if he needs to) is his go-to finisher and…

In House Tournament #1

Well, it is in the books!  We had our first tournament and it was a great success!  We hosted it in a very unique style, because we have people on cross platforms, we had a team vs team tournament.  This allowed people on PS4 and XBOX to still play in the tournament.  Here is a link to the brackets and a synopsis from the winners! IN HOUSE TOURNAMENT BRACKETS We decided to go with OP mczar ST deck, Bears because bears and Henselt machines because thats what fanderman would do 🙂 Luckily opp banned SK and we didn’t have to play that boring shit. We banned monster (he had ST, SK, MON) cause we didn’t know what kind of MON they has at all. First…

Deck Guide: [PTR] Blackwings Eist Bear Swarm

We are hitting up the PTR hard trying to create some new decks.  IamBlackWing has been piloting this cool bear deck.  The deck aims to spam out the new card introduced in the Mid-Winter expansion [Beastmaster], and having cards like [Olaf] to be large finishers. Because GwentDB does not have the leader Eist in the database yet, I replaced the leader, keep in mind Eist adds a lot to this deck, and is the primary leader you want to be using. Check out the full guide in progress here!

Deck Guide: Global Discard #2 Ladder

Saber has recently played this deck exclusively on the ladder from rank 20 to GM and now has taken it to #2 on the ladder!!!  So here it is in a nutshell.  You usually want to start of with Bran into Cerys+Mork and Olgierd (Cerys first). This gives you a lot of carryover and secures that if you opponent beats you going 1 card down, you will actually have CA as long as you manage to stay ahead of your opponent in r2. You should never pass in r1 before you have 3+ res targets since you want to avoid being 2-0’ed.  Check out the Guide Here!
