Brief Summary of Build

Hi everyone

I am a proud member of the Fourth Row!   The Fourth Row is an international, multi platform Gwent community; comprised of 4000mmr and above members. We work together to challenge the meta and become better players. We have an active chat on the LINE app where we theory craft and provide feedback to raise our rank on the ladder and play at the highest level in tournaments! Please visit our website - http://www.TheFourthRow.com

I’ve previously shared my No Vran Consume deck (http://www.gwentdb.com/decks/36023-top-20-no-vran-consume) and my Henselt scorch deck (http://www.gwentdb.com/decks/36590-the-fourth-row-top-15-global-scorch-henselt)

Both of these decks became very popular, so I wanted to share the deck that got me to #2 globally. The decklist is NOT original and to be fair I only began to use it after I lost 5 times in a row to Zora_Max on the ladder so all credit to him for the deck.

The deck is extremely versatile and only rarely suffers from bad draws. I assume most of you know how to pilot a discard deck, so I won’t talk about basics.

Card Combos

  • Restore into Gremist/Maiden
  • Freya into restored Maiden
  • Sigdrifa into restored Gremist

General Guide

You usually want to start of with Bran into Cerys+Mork and Olgierd (Cerys first). This gives you a lot of carryover and secures that if you opponent beats you going 1 card down, you will actually have CA as long as you manage to stay ahead of your opponent in r2. You should never pass in r1 before you have 3+ res targets since you want to avoid being 2-0’ed.

General gameplan:

  1. Bran into Cerys+Mork+Olgierd
  2. Warmonger into raider (If you only have 1 warmonger in hand you might want to discard Maiden instead)
  3. Another warmonger (Preferable through Maiden)
  4. If you can pass now, while forcing your opponent to go 1 card down you might want to do it. Otherwise, you might try to activate Cerys to get ahead before passing. If you won the coinflip, you can also drag the round out since your finishers are better than most other decks.


  1. Blacklist Raider
  2. Mulligan Cerys, Olgierd, Mork (In that order). It’s no disaster if you play Mork/Olgierd from hand

General tips:

  • Be flexible with Bran. Consider do discard Spy if you have Sigfrida in hand and are up again Henselt. If you have restore in hand you might consider to discard Maiden/Gremist
  • Don’t be afraid to discard a Freya with your Warmonger to make sure you can activate Cerys in r3.
  • Use Restore on Freya/Maiden/Gremist
  • Consider to save a Raider in the deck for r3 for a powerful 14 bronze point play (Freya+Warmonger+Raider




Easy matchup.

Gremist into fog + muzzle to steal his Ronvid. If not possible then Coral it.

Be smart with your Igni. It can gain amazing value on his machines. Lacerete will also deal amazing value since they are rowstacking. Never play your own spy before he play his (To counter Calvary and scorch effects)


Mulligan for Coral/Muzzle. Stop his Nekker train asap. If it isn’t possible then try to 2-0 him. Your igni is mvp here.


Tough matchup if they abuse coinflip and play spy right away. You may NEVER pass without having played quite some cards in this matchup. Preferable 4-5 res targets, since an early pass + Assire can screw you up.

Save Coral for Joachim/Iris


The following things usually determines the outcome of the game: Coinflip, carryover (Who muzzles/Corals Mork/Oligerd), Igni, Armorsmith. Try to lose r1 while have CA and start r2 with more carryover than your opponent.


Igni and Lacerete will do the job again.


Use your harpooners to minimize their ale value.

Great sword:

Difficult matchup. Save your coral and Igni until they play their adrenalin rush. I haven’t played much against it though.


Concede. Jokes aside, this is just a hardcounter. Try to avoid using your discard abilities. Coral their Avallach when possible.

Card Replacements

Silvers: -Olgierd+Dorogaray/Decoy

Golds: -Igni+Madman
