Brief Summary of Build
Deck (old version) presentation (in Polish): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIxG61WOE20&feature=youtu.be
Hello, we (Eltin1 and Gozdan/mmatip) would like to present a Skellige deck, which is based on Ciri: Nova and An Craite Greatswords. Our bronze and silver cards don't affect the opponet's side of the board, therefore we have to put a little bit of control in golds (Muzzle and Coral). Ciri: Nova is of course a big powerplay and Vesemir: Mentor pulls out a Stribog Runesone and with a Roach can also be a great powerplay.
Morkvarg is our carryover and +5 from our leader. Restore and Sigirdrifa can deal with enemy's removal and ressurect important units. Udalryk is our card advantage play.
Dimun Pirate Captain, Dimun Corsair allow us to keep Dimun Light Longship on the board for the whole match. Priestess of Freya resurrects an An Craite Greatswordn and Tuirseach Bearmaster. We want to discard An Craite Raiders from King Bran. Reconnaissance thins our deck. It can be replaced by [Heymaey Spearmaiden] but they can become a blank card in the final phase of the game.
Vesemir -> Mandrake/Runestone
Restore -> Tuirseach Bearmaster or Dimun Pirate Captain
Dimun Pirate Captain -> Dimun Light Longship
Dimun Pirate Captain -> Dimun Corsair -> Dimun Light Longship
In a mulligan phase you have to be careful, because you don't want 5 cards on your starting hand (Morkvarg, Mandrake, Stribog Runestone, 2x An Craite Raider). So if you have one An Craite Raider it is a good idea to mulligan it first in order to blacklist that card. If you play against non-removal decks, you also don't need Dimun Corsair. In the worst case, you want to keep Mandrake and Runestone in your hand and mulligan it in the next round.
The good start is to play An Craite Greatsword and after that a Dimun Light Longship in order to start our point machine. You also want to thin your deck and make a carryover for the next round from your leader. If you lost the coinflip you can try to play Udalryk. You control the sitation on the board and try to win the first round on even cards or with one card down, but if you have a better carryover than your opponent, then you can also lose the first round being the one card ahead. You need to thin your deck in order to make use from Dimun Corsair and your resurrection cards in the next rounds. You can use Vesemir to thin your deck from Roach and Stribog Runestone
If you won the first round you can again start your Longship Machine (with boosted An Craite Greatsword) and try to control the card advantage in order to have the last say in R3.
You have big finishers such as Ciri and boosted An Craite Greatsword. Again if the last round is long, you can play Dimun Light Longship with An Craite Greatsword.
Muzzle -> Other Control Card (for example Birna Bran)
Reconnaissance -> Heymaey Spearmaiden
