Here are two terms I have seen in the forums and heard used in videos and live streams

Roping - letting the turn timer almost run out before playing a card / passing.
BM (bad manners) - after you have passed and the opponent has clearly won, they continue to play the rest of their cards. Some people consider this bad manners.

What you folks have against writing the full words?
Did the alphabet bullied you guys when you were kids or something? :D

Personally, naught. I've always preferred complete words, however, not everyone finds them convenient, thus, a guide for us old-fashioned types.

They can become rather overwhelming.
That's the good thing about having been in the military, you become immune to acronyms (or addicted to them, but that's another topic).

Hello

A few other more or less common speaking:
Wiping (Cleaning the Board or a single Unit in one wipe)
Hype (Net Deck, Top 10 lists, etc.)
Meta : Basicly the summary of what "everyone else" is playing. For example: If i write Meta, i think of GwentDBs Top 10. You could also describe it as "The others", but it also means the Guys wich are playing at your specific ranking/MMR.
Ping : Deal 1 Damage (Trebuchet for example)
Burn your Handcards : Waisting Cards or pass the point of passing (merely the same as bleeding)
AP = Attack Power : The strength of a Card. Havent seen anyone using any term for this. It seems common to describe Cards just with a Number instead of AP, strenght or whatever.

Also, could you add a list of Decktypes?
Maybe this could help to "speak one language" now and in the Future.
For example: Alot of Decks are Aggro-Types but i rarely read terms like "Aggro", "Swarming" or "Spamming".
Control-Decks (Weather Control, Board Control, Hand-Control, Deck-Control, Graveyard-Control)
Other Types:
Aggro-Decks, Shuffle-Decks, Reveal-Decks, Steal-Decks, Replay-Decks, Chain-Decks (Ress Chain-Combo / Something - Chain-Combo), Lock-Decks, Buff-Decks, Consume-Decks, Snowball-Decks, Wipe-Decks and Combos.
Anything forgotten?

Greetings
Faustus
