  • Nilfgaard arrives! New faction now available in GWENT.



    We’re excited to announce the release of the latest update to GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, introducing a new playable faction — Nilfgaard.




    With its control and espionage oriented playstyle, Nilfgaard equips players with gameplay mechanics that allow for revealing cards in the opponent’s hand, controlling the order of cards in player decks, and use of disloyal units, among others.

    The update expands the number of cards available in the game by over 60 — new additions also include faction-specific cards for Northern Realms, Scoia'tael, Skellige and Monsters, as well as neutral cards usable by every faction.

    Full list of changes:

          Commanders Horn looks a bit underwhelming for a silver card now if you compare it to bronze cards like the ST healer or the SK guy.

              Well this screwed up my entire deck strategy. Monsters are already a pain to deal with this feels unfair.

                          King Bran's ability changed to: "Discard 2 cards from your deck and add 2 base strength to them."
                          Why make an already hard to play ability next to useless now? Before, we've got at least a card back in our hand but with the change all this ability does is putting you in a serious card disadvantage and only few cards can leverage discarded cards, for a small effect.
                          If it walks like an Elf and quacks like an Elf it must be Scoia'tael

                            As far as I can see, this looks like an ability designed specifically for graveyard/resurrection strategies. Discarding from the entire deck, opposed to just the current hand, would seem to give the player a bit more control over which cards are available for resurrection.
                            'Sorry, but smashing barrels is one of my hobbies!'

                            Forewarned is forearmed. Therefore, to reduce chances of random encounters with the Guards, please, review the Rules and Regulations of the Forums. Thank you.

                              Did you misread it? it takes the cards from your deck now not your hand. so its not a card disadvantage, also it can be used to thin your deck which is often very useful.
