This was the least damaging patch for me, they only nerfed two cards I play and buffed one, so I only have to cut one provision from my deck. For once I'm not left with useless cards.
On the other hand, I liked unitless because they were a good matchup for me and I knew how to play around them so eh there goes those free wins.
But it looks like they fucked people over with the new starter deck changes? Not surprised. They're so greedy with scrap now. I get that they went overboard with how generous they were pre-Homecoming but holy shit are they brutal toward new players.
Poison Francesca decks are really good in seasonal. Devil's Puffball is autokill anything (not Immune) and Poison whatever is next to it for your other Poison cards. Especially good when there's lots of boosting specials being used like Swallow Potion. And it also helps to complete the Poison contract easier!
Francesca is my favourite Scoia'tael leader, so I'll probably use this mode to finish her mastery contract.
Got the cardback today finally. Don't know whether to go for the borders or not - I have the old ones from last year's Magic season, and I'd probably rather spend RP on the other trees, but the updated borders look much better than the old ones...
Today's This Week in Gwent video announced there's going to be a stream on Monday, almost certainly to announce the next expansion (and the sixth faction). From the teases so far, it seems like it's going to be something related to Eternal Fire, Novigrad, possibly also Redania.
Hoping I can make a Witch Hunter themed deck. I'm not usually one for themed decks, but they were one of my favourite parts of Witcher 3, and the Witch Hunter card in beta was one of my favourites too.
So far we have Menge, Moreelse, Kurt, Graden and Witch Hunter Executioner. We're likely getting Witch Hunter from beta back, and also Tamara Strenger. So hopefully I can make something fun with them!
Also the Flying Redanian and Vivaldi Bank are two neat cards. I like that they give more value to your coins than just 1 boost, or 1 Vitality, etc.
