The 11th chapter of Aretuza Journals takes the tempo mechanic under a very close look and explains its role and importance in Gwent. It explains its correlation with other Gwent resources and establishes why it is in fact the most important aspect of the game.
Queensguard has been one of those deck that always had a lot of potentials and one of the decks that was always quite strong but never was it quite the number 1, now it is definitely tier one, and combined with the discard elements of the Skellige factions it is sure one hell of a problem to play against this deck
Radovid has been the least played Northern Realms leader since the launch of the game, but his playstyle and Bloody Baron really work well together, you want to kill everything your opponent plays and win with minimal board presence, later on you want to overwhelm your opponent with your Bloody Baron. Control at it's best.
Brouver Hoog has been the dwarf archetype leader since the beginning of Gwent, but with some tweaks and tests, Eithne with her Special Cards Engine has been proved to be a devastating Tempo combination that, if not stopped, can easily take out any opponent.
Token, Weather Control and Consume monsters have all been seen a lot on ladder lately, but the carryover dagon deck is also as powerful, if not stronger than these decks! Ekkimara, Caelano Harpies, Vran Warriors and Nekkers are sure to make your ladder experience a living hell.
Scoia'tael has been in an awkward position for the past few weeks, Spell got nerfed, mulligan, movement, and dwarfs didn't reward you enough for playing them, but the hybrid Tempo version seems to work pretty well in the current format, this list not only has good bleeding and tempo options but it's also not the most popular deck which makes it hard to play around.
Spell Scoia'teal has been one of the most annoying archetypes to play against because of its non-interactive way of playing, many units and cards lose value because they're not able to target any units, on the other hand, Spell Scoia is hard to pilot, therefore this guide will help you get an idea on how to do that!
Consume has been turned upside down with some of the latest changes but and it's not quite the same deck, but Dagon is as powerful as ever, and with the recent buff to the Monster faction as a whole it is sure to dominate the meta!
Foltest, the Witchers, and Machines joined their forces in order to create one of the strongest NR decks! With good deck thinning choices and amazing tempo swings provided by this deck no faction is safe!
