Meta snapshot #35
[20.02] Release: 13 new decks, new ranking, new videos, new matchups & gameplan info.
So February has come. It’s the perfect time to come back after a break, wake up from hibernation and conquer the ladder again. As this is the month of love, it’s worth giving a chance to some of our proposals, giving yourself over to the card game and spending unforgettable evenings and nights in the arms of Gwent.
This month, our valentine to you is the new snapshot format. We are pleased to present you with more and more diverse decks, so that everyone will find their true love among them.
Already at the end of the previous season, we could meet Albrich’s Tactical Decision, which is currently the leader in Nilfgaard. Cultist players can rejoice, for them we have as many as two variants of lists with which they can worship the eternal eclipse. Fans of the good old assimilation will also find something, Enslave is still a solid deck worth picking up.
I admit that after the Onslaught rework, it is my favorite Skellige leader and the unicorn roster has a chance to be the best representative of this archetype. Despite the nerfs, we have an updated version of Warriors for you, lovers of devo decks will not be forgotten by us. And we also have a Selfwound, my lovely Selfwound. If anyone missed the brutal cultists and bloodthirsty beasts, go ahead, help yourself comrades!
Lately, I’ve been falling in love with the Northern Realms deck. Last season I played the list with Melitele and oh my, how much fun I had. The standard priestesses who no longer stand in the shadow of Melitele are also worth considering if someone likes this archetype as much as I do. There could also be knights who do not give up from the top of the ladder, I personally recommend the version with the temple, but for traditionalists we have a list with Aerondight. If there is anyone among you who missed the reavers, please, take and play, I think that I will start this season with them myself.
Glad to see Precision Strike on our list, it’s by far my favorite Scoia’tael ability and if someone needs control, this is the perfect candidate for you. Harmony has gained a few moves to control the situation on the board thanks to both Brehen and Quax, and for fans of Nekker – movement works great, seriously, I recommend it if someone hasn’t tried it yet.
In monsters there will also be something for fans of loyal decks, we serve frost for you in two versions. Deathwish – a truly monstrous and disgusting concept does not differ in quality, if there are any sick fans of it here – choose which list you like more and go crazy. Relics also returned and gained many fans, was it deserved?
The most changes have probably came from the Syndicate. However, don’t worry! Both devo Sigi decks and wicked bounty hunters are worth watching and will easily deal with enemy units.
We hope you enjoy the new format and bring a breath of fresh air to the ladder. We have a lot of suggestions, don’t worry, the first game with a new deck is like the first pancake – to be thrown away. Sometimes all pancakes are messed up… we know such situations. However, don’t worry. Pick your decks, experiment and have fun.
See you on the ladder!
We hope you will have fun with the current meta and we will see you on the top!
