NR is meant to be an engine faction, while SK is rather midrange nobrain slam. It's OK.
The problem is - devs can't math and thus balance it (it's not OK).
The best engine in the game currently is messanger of the sea in Skellige - any other can't compare in terms of price/value/uncounterability (it grows to 6p quickly and can be played cheaply few times from graveyard by skellige). So it is SK who have best engines in the game, best control, and best dmg+bodies pointslam - no NR. NR engines doesn't exist in current game state at all - and not only because wizards are just stronger - even before alumnies introduction they wasn't played often

NR and SK both got good cards, this comparison makes no sense.
If comparision for example coockoduck to gremist don't make sense, than what comparision have? Regardless of that I see that rather all players agree that Skellige have upperhand over NR and they dont deny it, they argue that NR have upperhand over some other factions though (what is irrelevant in NR vs Skellige metchups mentioned in that post; But I encourage someone to make complex and detaileed comparisment of cards in NR to cards in other factions that NR should be theoretically much stronger, and we could see it). So if something doesn't have sense is Your post , no My comparision.

I just wanted to say that NR engines (and order) are generally not favoured against Skellige Damage/Control Decks. Especially in this meta, where you gonna face very agressive decks (because of crazy engines) and nothing you put on the board would stick. Hyper Control > Engines
I agree that NR have a lot of bad cards that need a little LOVE (you listed some). More than Skellige, probably. But enough good cards to be playable. Scoia'Tael has far more crappy cards, if you wanna go this way.
That post is not about SC or other factions, it is about NR vs Skellige. In SC the first thing that should be reworked is traps though - playing against spam of it is only flustrating because You can't do anything except to put card on the table and wait what will happens and something like that shouldnt exist at all. But it is off topic - yet I encourage You or others to make (if You find a little time off for it of course, because it is time consuming activity) as detailed as possiblle comparisment of cards in NR to cards in other factions that NR should be theoretically much stronger (like SC that You mentioned, for example wather of the valley vs PFI, skaggs or mentioned wov vs seltkirk, or Ida vs coockoduck etc.), so we clearly could see it about what cards You are speaking and discuss it
