Welcome to the Gwentlemen Meta Snapshot! Here you will find a breakdown of competitive decks in the current Gwent meta.

Click on the images below to see more in-depth reviews of each archetype along with sample decklists.

Tier Explanations

Tier 1 - These decks are the best the meta has to offer. They are highly tuned and capable of beating every other deck.

Tier 2 - These decks are powerful and capable of beating every tier 2 and lower deck consistently. These decks have one or more major flaws that prevent them from consistently beating tier 1 decks.

Tier 3 - These decks are capable of beating tier 3 and meme decks consistently. They have multiple major flaws that prevent then from being able to compete consistently with decks in higher tiers.

Gwentlemen’s Comment:

swim: Scoia’tael is looking pretty solid in a few ways; they feel like they have multiple decks on the brink of tier 1, but still have a hard time combatting the hyper reliability of Milfgaard and Skellige at the moment.

Freddybabes: Looks like Spies and Restore Skellige will still be around for a while longer - but it’s exciting to see an old archetype like Consume regain some popularity and hopefully shake things up.

Lamios: I think it’s quite curious how the tiers are basically defined by the strength of the deck’s finisher. The decks with the strong finishers are tier 1, and a lot of other good decks that work perfectly well and have decent engines are simply not up to the task of fighting those other decks because their finishers are worse.
