Bandit Gang’s Meme Snapshot for Gwent #4

Introduction

A meme deck can be considered many things. Some people believe that a meme deck is mainly played for fun, to make yourself and the opponent laugh, and not to win with. A deck like Thicc Aglais would be a good example. Other people believe that meme decks have their own theme like the bandit archetype, which makes it a lore friendly deck. And most people would agree that a meme deck is also considered an off-meta deck: a deck that has its own unusual strategy or inclusions, but that can still win you plenty of games. You could think of a deck like Triple Commandos here.

But I digress. Welcome to the fourth edition of Bandit Gang’s Meme Snapshot! In case you missed out on the other editions, you can find them here. Once again, we want to use new concepts that weren’t included in the first and second edition, but you might also see different versions of decks that were included already. The main goal, as always, is to show you the diversity that is possible in Gwent, beyond all the top tier meta lists. As before, we kept the same categories but have now added a new purpose to the Honorable Mentions category. The categories are as followed:

1. Fun But Garbage Decks: these are the decks that are just for fun but will not win you any games 90% of the time. 

2. Lore Friendly Decks: these are decks that are based around a certain theme that is often lore based. 

3. Becoming A Pro Decks: these are decks that are considered off meta, but are decent to climb to Pro Rank with. Nonetheless, they are not included in the Meta Snapshots.

4. Honorable Mentions: these are decks from community members that we wanted to give that extra spotlight.

Fun But Garbage

Overview:

The deck consists of two strategies – you should use them in two rounds to win a game. The first one is a classic soldier strategy. Play a lot of Pikemen, Infantry or illusionists and use Vrygheff + Vreemde. The second strategy revolves around the recently buffed Ointment and old-school Alchemist meme. Swap the power of a small unit (a cow) with living armor or…. With Tibor, so you can use ointment on him!

Pros:

– Soldiers

– Cows

– Can battle both control and greedy decks.

Cons:

– Limited amount of maximum points

– Your combo can be bled

– Low control

Core Cards:

Triss Telekinesis: lets you play one bonus Ointment but can be replaced with a control card like Koko heatwave or Jennifer Invocation.

Germain Piquant: Core card for both of your strategies. An extremely important card so try to keep it for a final round

Mushy Truffle: Amazing for swarming and for keeping your cards healthy. You can use it for Pikemen in round 1 or Illusionists in round 2 or 3.

Written by Bomblin

Overview:

This is an incredible deck whose goal is to play double Cahir and finish the game with Regis: Higher Vampire.

Pros:

– Can’t lose against greedy boosty decks.

– No one expects Cahir in Enslave

Regis, duh

Cons:

Yrden is your enemy

– Bleedable

– Control decks can screw you

Core Cards:

Garrison: you want to use it on your opponent’s card to boost both your Cahirs and then steal the boost with Regis. With Steffan, you can do it twice!

Letho: Most of the time you want to use him on Cahir, however, in some situations, it is better to use him on the defender, Hefty Helge, or even your opponent’s card!

Enslave: is not a card but a leader that is unique and quite good in the current meta!

Written by Bomblin

Overview:

With the recent addition of Mushy Truffle to the game along with some Provision changes it’s now easier than ever to attack your opponents with Cutup Lackeys! I went for a bit of good ol’ Congregate Crimes and Fireswarm with a twist. 

Pros

– Fallen Knight’s can power through round 1 

– Fun to watch Cutups go Pew Pew 

– Damnation Value 

Cons

– Really needs Cutups to survive

– With so many combo pieces, you don’t like to be bled 

Core Cards

Whoreson Senior: We use full leader to ensure we have both targets and coins to allow Senior to give us 2 Cutups on board easily. 

Cutup Lackey: The bonded ability is what we’re aiming to make use of. We have Idarran and Igor to copy them as many times as possible. I like to be as greedy as possible and have them all on board before using any of my Crimes.

Mushy Truffle: Give us quick access to a Cutup Lackey and also does a great job of buffing them out of removal range. The Golden Froth is also very nice on our 2 defenders. Remember to have Idarran down before using Mushy Truffle as it’s a spawn!

Written by Kalvino

Overview:

This deck is silly. This idea is to get Dol Dhu Lokke and set Yghern, Pugo, Griffin, or Radeyah at the top of your deck. From there you have a few options. You can drop Imlerith for a thrive friendly pointslam, you can decoy one of the spawned drones or you can let Sunset Wanderers do its thing. With Dwimveandra you can do this multiple times and since Dol Dhu Lokke stays on the field for multiple rounds you have less pressure to draw both Dwim and Dol in the same round. The teleport facilitates an extra Dwimveandra proc but in a pinch you can replay a locked thrive unit or one Griffin/Elder bear for extra thriveyness.

Pros:

Radeyah and Shupe are really just there because you have no reason not to include them.

Cons:

– It’s a cute combo deck when you draw all the pieces but don’t expect easy wins even when you do draw all of the right cards.

Core Cards

Dol Dhu Lokke: Try to win r1 without playing DDL so you can use it to bleed r2 into a short r3.  

Glustyworp: Glusty is there for the cute Dwimveandra/DDL combo spawning a ludicrous amount of drones on your board. Glusty can and will save you from overswarming your board while also proccing thrive.

Overview:
Once upon a time there was a fella that figured out a new strategy for Iris: Shade. This new strategy contained Queen Meve, who gains armor for every boost that she gets, which became an ideal target for Iris. Therefore he put in a bunch of cards that synergize with this strategy and thus the following deck was created.

Pros:
– Thicc Iris
– Synergy between cards
– It is kind of fun

Cons:
– Being bled in round 2
– Missing out on combo cards
– Opponent has answers for your combo pieces

Core Cards:

Queen Meve + Iris Shade: Already explained why they are the core cards in overview kinda.

Donimir of Troy: It protects Meve from not dying, and also protects Vysogota of Corvo who equals a lot of points.

Iris’ Companions: Great tutor, when picking Iris from the deck you can also choose a card to discard. So it doesn’t have to be in hand.

Foltest + Dun Banner: This combo allows you to win round 1 easily which can guarantee you a long round 3.

Written by Babyjosus

Overview:

The meme decks disguised behind the Siege. The plan is to use the scenario in Round 1 to win it and go to a long Round 3. In Round 3, use as many Griffin Witchers as possible with Idarran and then purify them each turn after they are locked.

Pros:

– PEW PEW PEW

– Very good control

– I love to stockpile

Cons:

– Destroyed by total control decks

– Only good in long rounds

– Have bad cards and leader!

Core Cards:

Purify cards: use them on the row with Griffin Witchers for a replay of 3 damage each!

Idarran: Can work with Kaer Seren, Siege, and many more!

Written by Bomblin

Overview:

Probably the best Regis deck is the Nilfgaard spies deck but if you want to try something different, I strongly suggest Skelige Regis! The deck is incredible in long Round 3 if you manage to line up everything nicely and can guarantee you a victory against a lot of decks.

Pros:

– It is a Regis deck

– Amazing long round potential

– Huge, satisfying finisher

Cons:

– It might be hard to set up Regis

– You cry when you see Dagur banished

– Bad against decks with a low amount of units.

Core Cards:

Dagur Two Blades: You can play him twice because of Fucusya and he can give you a CRAZY amount of points with Regis.

Discard package: A classic, yes but worth mentioning because it lets you get Regis into your hand which is crucial for the deck and allows us to not play Matta.

Whale Harpooner: This card got a nice buff and it feels good in a Regis deck – helps you line up power and move units to one row.

Written by Bomblin

Overview:

 Elf and Onion Soup 4 Times in one game! What else do you need to hear? This one is pretty janky but lots of fun. Due to Soup being an alchemy it’s very easy for it to find value in a Druid deck. First Soup is the one from deck, Second is from Bride of The Sea, Third is Bride of the Sea again with Fucusya, Fourth is from Alissa putting it back and then playing it with Ermion. The perfect sequencing of this can be difficult and is dependant on your draws. 

Pros:

– RNG Casino Fun

– Gedy and Preachers offer many points

Cons:

– Very vulnerable to graveyard punish

– Preachers need to survive to give us points

Core Cards:

Elf and Onion Soup: We want to destroy our low power gold cards to find more useful ones. Main Target is Crowmother since she comes back, Morkvarg does as well. Ermion and our 4 power golds are nice targets too. Can be used one low power bronzes if needed, like Crows. 

Bride of the Sea: Since we need at least 1 turn of Rain on board to access Soup when we play Bride I went for Rage of The Sea to guarantee it always works. We want to use Fucusya and play Bride again so we must make sure we get her in the graveyard in either an early round or by destroying her with Soup. 

Alissa Henson: Used to shuffle the Soup back in deck to be tutored out again. 

Derran: Can be useful to put Crowmother in the Graveyard.

Lore Friendly

Overview

With the recent expansion focusing on Mages, Bomblin & I felt inspired to highlight some Nilfgaardian Mages with this deck. At first glance it may look like a worse version of popular meta Assimilate decks, which might be true, however we have the power of underused cards on our side! You can look forward to surprising your opponent with Fringilla Vigo’s fiery pew pew and if you so dare you can even use Assire to put her back in the deck and do it again! The most fun card is definitely Cosimo Malaspina for good ol’ RNG nonsense.

Pros

– Surprise opponent 

– Highroll to victory 

– Play both Fringilla & Artorius Vigo

– Master of Puppers 

Cons

– Almost a Meta deck

– Cosimo Lowrolls are painful

Core Cards

Fringilla Vigo: She makes great use of all our mages and feels great played next to a Blightmaker and their spawned Guardian 

Cosimo Malaspina: Has many targets to transform in this deck. His value is not always assured but its always interesting to see what he finds you. Best on 4p or 5p cards.

Assire var Anahid: Very flexible but probably best used to put Roach or Cosimo back in deck for later.

Written by Kalvino

Overview:

Fully agent deck that can get a lot of value in a long round with a False Ciri! Also, if you missed Ball, you can play it again! Plus, no one is using the Lockdown leader ability!

Pros:

– Huh? ah…

– Nice in long rounds

– Struggle in Round 1

Cons:

– Bad leader ability

– Limited amount of points which can be generated

– Overswarm

Core Cards:

False Ciri: Not only the art and the voice line are incredible. The amount of points this card can provide for 6 provisions is amazing!

Seditious Aristocrats: You have a lot of spies so this card can get you a lot of value.

Emhyr: I just like my big boi.

Written by Bomblin

Overview:

In my opinion, dwarves are a super boring archetype. This version makes it more fun. It is also not a bad deck but lacks a tiny bit of control. The combo is to use Filavandrel from Isengrim’s Council to create Zoltan’s company. With Francesca and the original card, you can create a lot of Rowdy Dwarves! Then, you finish the round with Zoltan: Warrior.

Pros:

– Cute, big combo

– A lot of points outside of combo with Brouver

– Armor can protect you from pings

Cons:

– Yrden

– A lot of setup

– Be careful not to overswarm

Core Cards:

Brouver: helps you win the round where you don’t use your combo.

Francesca: Mostly used for Zoltan’s Company but can be flexible with Council or Call of the Forest

Dwarven Chariot: Spawns Rowdy Dwarves and gives armor to set up Brouver or to protect engines.

Written by Bomblin

Overview:

I built this list to revisit the self poison archetype after the Wretched Addict received a nice buff recently. However I ended up with a hybrid list that features several sketchy locations and a nice Syndicate vibe, so it suits this category.

Your strategy is starting your engines early and harvest points from overspending. You can play your cards as you draw them, but save your spenders for the end of the round. So the coin management is pretty simple, and so is your point generation.

Pros:

– Wretched Addict is a pretty good card now

– Three different possible targets for Dwimveandra

– Beggars work well with Caesar Bilzen, if Sigi Reuven is not available

Cons:

– Little removal in this deck

– Self poison package is a bit clunky, Wretched Addicts often need a second round before they get started because Gellert is vulnerable

– Fisstech is bad for you

Core Cards:

This deck is not as much about particular cards, but more about the theme.

Written by Escanbryt

Overview:

I am trying to make Vampire deck good every single season. I’ve tried full-on vampires, mixed them with Frost and now it is time for a control heavy decklist. And it works quite well!

Pros:

– Nice combo with Orianna

– A lot of control

– Vampires

Cons:

– You lose against Veil and no unit decks

– Small cards that require setup

– Can be bad in short rounds

 

Core Cards:

Toad Prince: amazing 4 point removal that can bypass shields and armor for relatively low provision

Orianna: winner of a long round if hidden behind the defender

Yghern + Ozzrel + Golyat: old combo is back after recent provision changes!

Written by Bomblin

Becoming A Pro

Overview:

The core idea of this deck is to use one of the recent additions to the game, Mushy Truffle, to protect possibly one of the greediest cards in the game – Vattier. You might be asking yourself why use Mushy Truffle over cards such as Armory, Petri’s Philter, Thunderbolt or perhaps even your Defender. The answer is cost-efficiency, as all of the previous cards either rob you of way too many points alone, or can take place of other, better cards and thus weaken your deck overall. Mushy Truffle provides you with some extend of protection and even if Vattier gets answered or you don’t draw him, you are still left with a stellar card capable of generating over 20 points. The deck has been proven by reaching Pro Rank and is capable of climbing further. 

Pros:

– Vattier’s crazy potential unburdened by wacky tech/support cards.

– A very strong Assimilate and control packages.

– Multiple finishers/plans for the final round – flexibility.

Cons:

– Difficult to pilot and susceptible to a degree of rng with draws.

– In some matchups even 5 power won’t be enough to keep Vattier alive.

– Finding proactive plays can get tricky depending on your hand.

Core Cards:

Vattier de Rideaux: Freedom has never been sweeter as Vattier can exist without a bunch of silly cards now. Usually your R3 card but in some heavily unfavorable matchups (Swarm, Control or Movement decks) you can also play him earlier if you know he wouldn’t stick anyways. Unbelievable potential, he can reach over 30 points of value quite often. Most often played as the penultimate card and boosted by Mushy Truffle immediately for protection. 

Mushy Truffle: Can protect Vattier, triggers Assimilate twice, Allows you to use your opponents bronzes against your opponent, provides you with carryover if played in R2. This card is crazy. You always wanna draw it regardless of whether you plan to play Vattier or not. Illusionists are both quite powerful and very fun to play with. 

Ramon Tyrconnel + Soldiers: The reason for why I opted for Ramon (Aside from loving the card!) was that he can provide you with an additional lock that could potentially unblock your Vattier. Furthermore, he can give you extra Assimilate engines and more proactive control setup with Slave Hunters and a variety of useful things with Illusionists. Ramon can be really draw dependent and you should keep it in mind, though, when using Roderick, Joachim, or when shuffling in general.

Overview :

The main idea of the deck is to punish your opponent with their own strategy. Usually Vilgefortz Renegade targets include Heatwave, Echo cards or Combo cards which you can pull off with Artaud Terranova and Coup de Grace. Ideally in round 1, you thin with Blightmakers, set up spying with Turncoats and Mage Torturer. Then Fercart into Dead Man’s Tongue for thinning and tempo. Nilfgaard usually prefers a longer round, so when you win round 1 proceed to dry pass round 2 and  take the long round 3. There are some exceptions depending on you matchups like Traps, Relicts, Double Cross, etc. 

Pros:

-Great on red coin

-Has good control like locks and tall punish

-Has engines and tempo to win r1

Cons:

-Can be bled out of good cards

-Less proactive

-Disciplined mulligan is required to not brick your mage assassins

Core Cards:

Vilgefortz Renegade: Great punisher for when the opponent has used tall punishes or echo cards for you to steal. Basic idea is to swap their best card with a bronze tactic from hand which you can then later play with Lydia’s ranged ability.

Lydia van Bredevoort: Pairs really well with Renegade as she can take back the tactic you put in opponent’s GY

Vincent Van Moorlehem: Pairs really well with Imposter

Coup de Grace: The deathblow really helps setting up your Renegade, when the opportunity strikes take it. Use Renegade to get that card you killed with Coup in your hand.

Artaud Terranova: All the spying tags in the early rounds really help you in setting up combos with the Renegade in Round 3/Final Round.

Fercart: Helps you to thin your deck and set up targets for Coup and Artaud. Great when he plays Deadman’s Tongue or Invocation .

Thanned Turncoat : Utilized with Fercart it becomes a nice engine combo that also sets up your Artaud

Blightmaker : Always wants to thin your Mage Assassin

Deadman’s Tongue: Used on Emissary and  Informant most of the time.

Overview:

If you know me I always enjoy some wholesome Scoia’tael and this particular deck has quickly become a personal favorite. You may take a look at this list of cards and be confused but I swear it makes sense! The original deck idea was to play as many Sorceresses and Bountiful Harvests as possible; I first tried it with Idarran but have since opted for a more consistent variant. With this final version the idea is to create 2 Bountiful Harvests (while leaving the original 2 in deck) then put them back in deck and play all 4 at once through Simlas. For a sweet and simple explanation, GhostArya (who has enjoyed success with her own version of this deck) said it best; “Get Simlas and 4 Harvests or lose”! Also shoutout to Danamariani from Twitch chat for the perfect deck name. 

Pros:

– Quite consistent

– Very satisfying finisher

– Sorceresses intimidate opponents 

– Great carryover

– Actually likes Blue coin 

Cons

– Falls apart if core cards are missed

– Fears running into Graveyard punish

– Can overswarm in bad situations 

Core Cards

Filavandrel aen Fidhail: One of our ways to guarantee an early Harvest. Ideally we handbuff him with a Vrihedd Saboteur or with a well placed handbuff from another Harvest. Cursed Scroll is used as the stratagem mainly to guarantee Fil on hand so he can be buffed. 

Triss Telekinesis: Our second card with pretty high potential to guarantee an early Harvest. Almost always works unless you run into an opponent with many specials. We are running only 2 sets of bronze specials to make her more consistent. 

Johnny & Sarah: Very underrated cards that work extremely well with our gameplan. We can commit one of them in an early round to secure victory but would love to have both for our final Simlas combo. Can often find them handbuffed or use a leader charge to get them out of removal range.

Alissa Henson: The centerpiece that enables our combo, she shuffles 2 copies of a bronze (Bountiful Harvest) from your graveyard back to the deck. It’s very important you play her before you go for your Simlas. It’s risky to do this before the final round because you could draw into the shuffled cards so ideally it’s done in the same round as Simlas.

Simlas Finn aep Dabairr: The glorious Elven Sage himself who allows for our giant point swing of playing 4 Bountiful Harvest in a single turn. Remember to give yourself ample time as the sequencing of clicking 9 cards in a turn sometimes lasts the full timer. It’s advised to not get a Whisperer in longer rounds as you will often run out of space. Also keep a unit in hand as to not miss out on all the handbuffs from the Harvests, its great to see them all go on Gord for example.

Written by Kalvino

Overview

The main idea of the deck is to have the highest Skaggs as often as possible. If you miss Skaggs in the early game do not worry as you have Filavandrel, Defenders and Sorceresses. 

Pros:

– Can use Red Coin to secure carryover

– Strong engines

– Skaggs offers great removal

– If everything goes well our finisher is huge

Cons:

– Easily punished on Blue if your hand is bad

– Luck of the draw

– Torque can miss target cards if there’s too many units in hand

Core  Cards:

Torque: Bread and butter of the deck, always have to handbuff him when you get the chance

Filavandrel aen Fidhaill: Ideal number for him would be 8 or 10, 12 can sometimes backfire so if you are sure that getting the Waters of Brokilon would win you the game then go for it.

Dunca/Hawker Smugglers: Smugglers should be protected with the leader ability whenever possible because these are your handbuff engines.

Simlas Finn aep Dabairr: Bountiful harvests is a great combo often used to defend the bleed from the opponent and simultaneously handbuffing your cards.

Forest Protector: Bountiful harvest can get you out of a tight spot when you need that small tempo. Into Rebuke for the control option as well.

Vrihedd Saboteur: Filavandrel / Sorceresses

Written by Decode789

Overview:

I love Glusty. I love AQ. I love Shupe. I love She-Troll. I love Renew. How about combining all of these ideas in one deck? It is perfect. Use your Glusty in round 1 because you want to use him again the round 3!

Pros:

– A lot of control

– No one expects double Glusty

– Nice combo finisher

Cons:

– Resets

– Korathi heatwave on Glusty

– Sometimes it is slow

Core Cards:

Renew: Most of the time you want to use it on Glusty to have your combo again. However, there are situations where it is better to use it on Whispess, defender, or even she-troll!

She Troll + Vran Warrior + Wererat: if you can get the combo going on, you get 3 points per turn!

Shupe + Radeyah: Nice value cards!

Written by Bomblin

Overview:

Deathwish has recently been buffed so I wanted to give it a try. Do you want to slam Rotfiends in your opponent’s face? Then this is the deck for you!

Pros

–  Can generate a lot of points in a short round

–  Has a control aspect where people are forced to play either around Fiends, Miruna or Toad Prince 

Cons:

– Goes tall on consume cards

-Opponents can play around Miruna or Toad Prince

Core  Cards:

Mushy Truffle : This card can enable your bonded ability for your Harpy when required.

Penitent: This card can be used early to thin out either Pugo/Golyat from your deck which enables your Ozzrel later on.

Haunt : This is the core deathwish enabler of the deck. Helps you proc Dettlaff, Miruna or Harpies when you are short on consumes.

Cyclops: I would like to call it an offensive consume where you just yeet the Fiend dealing 5 damage and also procing the deathwish of 5 damage. It is a flexible card among deathwish.

Dettlaff: In a short round, Dettlaff and your leader can generate a huge amount of points.

Urn of Shadows: Another useful tool to enable your deathwish abilities when you are short on consume cards. Usually for Archespore thin, Miruna seize or Penitent thin.

Written by Decode789

Introduction:

So first of all, keep in mind that this deck is supposed to be an attempt to use different neutral cards together with the power of Northern Realms to create some unique combination.
It surely has its strengths but also lacks some sort of tempo or heavy control options for certain matchups.

Gameplan:

The core idea is to play your Poor f* Infantry, turn them into Kaedweni Revenants with Draug and overwhelm your opponent with your specter army. Then, using Land of a Thousand Fables to turn your second Amphibious Assault into another Draug, you do all this again. Maybe with some Poor f* Infantry you have left, maybe with some other humans. 

Obviously, you can also use your Radovid’s Royal Guards, Dun Banner or Maxii Van Dekkar in addition to some leader charges in round 1 to place humans on your side of the board, turning them with Draug instead of your Infantry. 

Core Cards:

The Mushy Truffle is there to give you more Poor f* Infantry, while Casting Contest can help you to reenable the Revenants Order Ability and also boosting it up. While cards like Vincent Meis and Margarita Laux-Antille give you some control options on your opponent’s side of the board, the Siege Ladder is necessary to move around your Revenants, making them more flexible in what row you want to spawn more. You sometimes might overswarm a row pretty fast if you are not careful, so see them as your strategic movement.
Mandatory to this list is the Land of a Thousand Fables on Amphibious Assault, as only its order can turn AA into Draug…otherwise the core strategy won’t work. Therefor we have Pincer Maneuver as our leader ability in addition to also playing Oneiromancy…just to be sure. 

Tips:

Anyway, that’s basically it. You might find decent matchups, you might get in trouble versus other decks, but it surely teaches you sequencing in Gwent and can be a lot of fun if everything works out, while also strong enough to overwhelm your opponents. If you want to, you can change cards a bit, like a second Aedirnian Mauler or even including Sabrina Glevissig.

Written by Sawyer1888

Overview:

This deck is very control-heavy and has a few cards and combos that can slam down quite some points. The signature move is a three card combo of Tuirseach Veteran, Megascope and Idarran that yields 27 points for 17 provisions. This can usually only be countered if the Veteran is removed right away, which is kinda easy, but not obvious. And the Veteran can be made harder to remove, if one of the locations has its Order available. If you play greedier, the locations can both benefit from Idarran, if played after the combo.

Otherwise you have the Portal with the Bear Witcher Adepts and almost exclusively high base power units. So you can just play Triss Merigold as a plain removal card whenever needed, the only real brick being Geralt: Quen. Maxii van Dekkar and Cursed Scroll help your consistency.

Pros:

– Can create a lot of pressure on red coin

– Has a lot of options to disrupt engine decks

– Bleeds well and has a good short round with Geralt: Quen and Bear Witcher

Cons:

– Feels awkward if the Tuirseach Veterans get answered early

– Falls short if the removal doesn’t really disrupt a strategy

– Can sometimes have a clunky hand

Core Cards:

The combo cards are the core obviously, but beyond that it’s also not easy to change cards here. Cards like Portal, Marching Orders and Triss Merigold have specific deckbuilding requirements. And this deck feels really synergistic if you consider that this is a control-pointslam-deck. So I wouldn’t recommend changing too much here.

Honorable Mentions

Overview:

This is a highly greedy, inconsistent but super awesome SY meme deck to have fun with. Off the Books leader is essential as we don’t have a lot of ways to generate coins. Some cards can be used for Tribute (0). Basically has 3 main combos that can be utilized to make your opponent’s eyes roll back and forth while trying to understand what is going on!! 

Pros:

– Super greedy!!!

– Fun interactions/combos

– Feels good to pull off

Cons:

– Inconsistent

– Super draw dependent!!!

– Very vulnerable to tall removal

Core Cards:

Gellert Bleinheim + Salamandra Abomination: Can be used in any round, only if you have a full hand. Main goal is to have Abomination poisoned then add veil to it (via Crystal Skull or Stolen Mutagens). Try getting as many coins as possible and maybe commit a leader charge as well (not more than 7 though). Use Bleinheim and spam its fee order on Abomination. 1 coin will equal to a 4 point boost on Abomination (Veil will protect Abomination from second poison), with enough coins you can get about 30-40 points in a single turn. Can be spammed until Adrenaline 6 (Abomination self-purifies on turn end). Can help pushing your opponent to pass or bait a tall removal

Madame Luiza + Tinboy & Savolla: Can be used at any given moment to win a specific round or get out of a nasty bleed situation

Greater Brothers + Apothecary + Teleportation + Vlodimir: Make sure to initially use Greater Brothers while you don’t have any coins in your purse. Use Insanity until power drops to 2, then play Apothecary using Tribute for both heal and boost then use Insanity again to further boost your armor. Rinse and repeat (second apothecary or via teleportation) for a sweet 35-40+ armor on Greater Brothers. Last card should be Vlodimir to swap armor with power for a nice big finisher.

Bekker’s Dark Mirror: Can be used offensively but also as an extra/backup heal/boost on Greater Brothers for even greater boost!!!

Triss Telekinesis: Chance to get extra Stolen Mutagen or Teleportation

Conclusion

This was our fourth Meme Snapshot, we hope you enjoyed it! Hopefully we can all agree on the fact that there are plenty of decks included for all kinds of players that don’t want to contribute to the meta. For players that would like to have a good time, that want to role-play and want to go put their boot in the meta and claim their seats among the kings.

A big thank you to Carrost, Escanbryt, Sawyer, Mercernn, Decode and Pokkas for providing us with their decks! Otherwise it would have been somewhat one-sided, with only decks from Bomblin, Kalvino and myself. We hope that we inspired you to create your own memes or own versions of the decks with this Meme Snapshot. But for now, Bomblin, Kalvino and I will fare thee well, and we’ll see you again in Meme Snapshot #5!
