Brief Summary of Build
I took this deck to 15-4-1 over my last 20 games to 100 Northern Realms games on Pro
Ladder. Here are my records against different factions:

This is a Control deck with a number of high-tempo plays, and you can adjust playstyle based on your opponent's deck and strategies. Check the example games to see the various ways we take control of a game with this Henselt Machine Deck.
Siege Support + Witchers = 6 + 21 points
Siege Support + Temerian Infantrymen = 6 + 16 points
Henselt on the Siege Master is up to a 53 point play in one turn!
Myrgtabrakke and her lover Villentretenmerth combine for some sweet scorch plays.
The general guide is in the YouTube video. Supplemental material such as card replacements and combos are here.
Against lots of weather decks, -2 Battering Ram, +1 Ballista, +1 Kaedweni Sergeant or First Light
Scorch and Myrgtabrakke are basically irreplaceable, and same with Thaler; if you don't own every silver Spy just go craft them now.
As for Witchers, if you don't have them I'd probably do some mix of Reinforcements, Dethmold, Summoning Circle, and Margarita. Could also experiment with Operator on Siege Master.
Premium Villentretenmerth is a must.
Bigger Deck Changes
Replacing Dijkstra with Natalis and Witchers with Tactics card is an interesting variation on this deck that should perform well if you have the Natalis kit but not the Witcher kit.
