    RnR "Battle" Gwen 1.5

    almost final 1.503 Gwenneth Truesight version

    I have to admit that it was pretty hard to make a solid deck for Gwen in 1.5, i started from classic stealer\hit n hide variants but came to conclusion they are weak in current meta(makes me upset) so i had to create pretty standart deck and i doubt there are a lot of better variants.

    Deckbuilder

    x1 Gwenneth Truesight

    Allies:

    x3 Jasmine
    x3 Kristoffer
    x4 Puwen
    x3 Aldon
    x3 Tainted Oracle

    Abilities:

    x4 Poison Arrow
    x4 Rapid Fire

    Neutral:

    x2 Retreat!
    x3 Bad Santa
    x2 LLN

    Items:

    x4 Soul Seeker
    x4 Golden Katar

    Totall - 40 cards

    Card Choice:

    First of all i want to determine a "core" of a deck that cant be changed, exept copies of LLN

    x4 TO - draw engine, imo the best from available, played on t4 is great. These usually enough for me.
    x4 Poison Arrow - board controll, great with, kris\puwen, killing 5 hp allies, must have against MS.
    x4 Rapid Fire - x4 must have, too many players use sever ties nowadays thus i usually have second copy in hand or coming
    x2 LLN - no comments, x3 copies is maximum needed.
    x4 SS
    x3 Golden Katar - better than oath cause it is agro deck.

    These cards strengthen all strong sides of Gwen.

    Allies - standart human rush, you can experiment here and report if you find better choice.

    There is no Lily, cause no sense in her when you can have up to 8 weapons, believe me.

    Why no fatties? - hardly ever need them, bows and rapid fire our fatties, you can cut though some allies for fatties tou want, but dealing early dmg with them is a key of easy win + Jasmine + retreat\poison arrow combo works somehow better and faster than fatties for me.

    Other great cards:

    Will be added soon

    Game Process:

    1 - hold\kris is only if you go second against human.
    2 - puwen\santa bomb\poison arrow\retreat\ kris
    3 - jas\aldon\retreat!\arrow
    4 - TO\jas ability + bad santa\ratreat or arrow + bad santa
    5 - Rapid fire\another TO\ Jasmine+retreat!\arrow
    6 - SS\GK
    7-end game - board controll&going for a throat

    With Gwen dont forget about going for a throaght style, since your opp ~16 hp, and you have another bow in hand or TO on board you can start going for a throat ignoring allies.



    Weak Points

    1) Not getting draw and Rapid fire early.

    1.1) Moonstalker

    2) Lance using EP Aeon Combo.

    3) Ter Adun=)

    4) Amber

    UPDATE 1.1

    -1 Tainted Oracle
    -1 Poison Arrow


    +2 Bad Santa

    Thanks for sharing this deck with us. I really like it and find it rather effectiv after seeing it in action. I can understand why take this cards into your deck beside the lonely Bad Santa. Is there a reason why you just take 1 and not 2 to give yourself the possebility for a Santa-bomb?

    Generally, in most games TO is enough for draw engine, other draw engine are needed if you have bad draw or your opponent overdraw you like warriors and MS to stay competitive. Santa is here cause there was just 39 cards without it. Currently experimenting with x1 Battle plans and x1 santa for side draw insted of kris, battle plans would be quite logical as a deck works in topdecking style, emmm i called it battle, lol i must include battle plan for concept ;P

    interesting gwen deck, I think I played you a couple of times. I find when I have played against gwen it is either hot or not, generally being a blowout either way depending on peoples starting hands, does it perform erratically or is it just the games I am playing?
    I have been experimenting with using tainted oracle as primary draw engine in a few decks, seems to work well in some. How do you feel the warrior matchup is?, seems they nullify draw engine, weapons and rapid fire, if they run sever ties with a great draw engine of their own.

    Warriors are tough, but if you have better start hand(allies) you can blow out out them before they overdraw you. I won against really good Amber when i was gaoing first just spaming with allies(kris here are pretty helpful to absorb weapons), and finishing with bows for a throat. Though it is sweet to beat mages and elementalis. The only unbeatable hero is Moonstalker, i mean unbeatable to a Gwen that is meant to play like a gwen, i suppose to beat MS gwen doesnt need bows... just 4 retreat, arrows, traps, aeon, ep etc... thats not fun...

    What about sever ties, as i mentioned in description i run x4 rapid and usually hold one in hand in mid game or its coming in time, it can be pain but there is the other side that if you cast it the same turn they loose tempo you get free 4-8 dmg.

    Yeap, and she is hot anyway, more with jasmines of course=))

    I also have to admit that i am a fan of Into the Forest not cause you can set night prowler but beacause totall defence against anything exept nova for 1cc is awasome, giving a chance to get spammable ability but i cant place for it, itf requires strong and cheap draw engine like bs but it is to risky to play that way giving more tempo to your op.

    Nice agro Gwen.

    If Amber is a problem, put at least 1xST in your deck.

    As for the counters, personally I really like Retreat! And it also works vs. Moonstalker, another weakness.
    Poison arrow is also great for that too, naturally.

    When Lance drops his EP to set up Aeon, again just retreat it...
    :-)

    my 2-cents.
