  • Skellige Deck Strategies

    The skellige warriors that upon playing them, lose 2 strength - is that designed to go hand in hand with Warcry so they start off at 7, go to 5, and then go to 10?

    Why do I want a card that goes down in strength? I'm not seeing the tactical advantage outside of that warcry.

    EDIT: Users are welcome to use this deck to discuss varying Skellige deck strategies.

    Skellige_have_a_whole_archetype_of_self-wounding.
    It works really well in conjunction with the Axeman who get buffed when something gets wounded on your side.
    Warcray Doubles their Strength of course.
    Other things love to get wounded too like the Young Berserkers.
    You use things like Savage Bears to do 1 Str Wounding to all non-gold that enter and it helps everything take minimum wounding, ready for Warcry and activate the Axeman as many times as possible for the littlest potential wounding.

      I've not played the expansion for Witcher yet, so first exposure to Skellige.

      Thanks man!

        I have had a lot fun playing Skellige. Some really good combos of cards are possible.

        I want them to add records so I could see which deck I am winning the most with.

          Definitely!! I want stats ASAP.

          Btw I'm playing skellige too and doing the a ain crait warrior plus war cry plus commander horn strategy too. It works well if you get a nice hand otherwise it's tough to win. Better to keep the deck at minimum so you get the cards you want. I'll miss Cerys' special ability from the witcher 3, what is she good for now? She has nothing special going on or am I missing something ?

            I agree. She is not great right now.

              Cerys is a beast woman if you build your deck toward supporting her.

              I run a Skellige deck focused on resurrection and getting the Queensguard out there—Ermion and Cerys are my two golds. Basic idea is to play as much of the Queensguard as you can (potentially all of them if you have a Priestess) and then play Cerys on the first round. Hopefully you win that round, but you might not!

              After that, resurrect Cerys (since she's Silver now you have two cards, potentially, that can bring her back) and boost her further by resurrecting more and more Queensguard. This works nicely since bringing back one brings back all of them, and it should be a multiple-digit boost to Cerys every time you do it.

              Adrenaline Rush on a Silver Cerys who's been boosted to 15 or 18 is really something special, let me tell you.

                +2 for Lugos and a cannon fodder to bait dmg or to buff your units or to deal dmg by killing it after freezing to 1. You can spawn Lugos in the end even 20+ strength in gold.

                  Haven't seen a competitive deck without 5 resurrection cards, which is sad, no variety.

                    Does anyone have a super budget deck for Skellige?

                      Not sure why you'd be after a super budget deck, you can obtain cards you want pretty easily through the daily rewards. Also, never forget there's that handy Mill Spare Cards button, rack up those scraps!

                        I run 4 resurrection cards. You can check out my deck if you want here:

                          It can be improved by using King Bran as a leader for sure (makes sure your strategy in not prone to chance). I would also substitute An Craite Raiders to Queensguard, witchers to Decoy (here's your fifth resurrection if necessary), Johnny, and Svanrige.

                            Actually the chances are not that bad, I can't remember when was the last time I didn't draw Lugos and I am really satisfied with how deck works. I think Queensguards may be a better option than Clan An Craite Raiders though and I will give it a try. I wouldn't replace witchers, they make sure I get the right cards. I like the fact this deck has exactly as much card draw as I need. If I would replace cards for Svanrige and King Bran it would be too much in my opinion.

                              Hello all, does anyone have a savage bear-harald deck list? Is it viable or should i go for cerys-queensguard instead?
