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.

Card Combos

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.

General Guide

The general guide is in the YouTube video. Supplemental material such as card replacements and combos are here.

Card Replacements

Bronze Mix

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. 

Vernon Roche can be replaced with any utility card, such as Dandelion, Eskel, Keira Metz, or Philippa Eilhart.

Shani can also be replaced by any of the above, but you have to be much more careful about losing your Henselt targets if you don't have Shani available.

Dijkstra could be replaced with Royal Decree or any of the above cards.

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.
