THE DECK GUIDE(S)
The first deck that I would like to share with you is a Dana Méadbh deck. I’ve made a complete deck guide on this deck just yesterday so go and check it out here: https://teamrankstar.com/gwent-meta-deck-guide/
The other one would be my variaton of Gernichora with which I was very successful.
Usually you play The Frightener first to make sure it goes off (play it only when you have enough units to destroy your own!).The first synergy you try to make go off is laying down Foglet and then you hit it with Pugo Boom-Breaker. Use your leader afterwards(to make sure Pugo hits the Foglet(if you have some other cards to kill Foglet use the Leader first!)
After playing Pugo, play Nekkers to get the most out of them. Then you may proceed with Kikimore Warriors to have an engine set up.
When your engines are on the board, you can continue with Griffins to play some tempo/gain dominance/set up graveyard.
At this point we usually have dominance, so be sure to go for you Wild Hunt Riders to thin the deck.
Now your Frightener has finally turned into a 12 point card. (if not play a Griffin/Cyclops/Brewess/Predatory Dive) If you think you are ahead by a lot of points and your opponent might have problems catching up with you with only one card down you may consider passing.
It’s really up to you, you can basically push the round with some of the Crones – maybe try keeping the Whispess(for control purposes).
In round 2 – if you won round 1, you may consider pushing your opponent if your cards are good enough.
In round 3 – Basically we start simillary to R1 by setting up Nekkers and Kikimoras. If playing against Monsters try to have Dominance (even for your Protofledder). The card that you try to keep as long as possible is Geralt to make sure you kill the highest unit! Other cards worth waiting to use are Whispess and Parasite!
Note: Drowners are mainly used at the beginning of the rounds to get most points out of them but if you are expecting a row locked card spare them!!
