Nilfgaard in Gwent: The Witcher Card Game

Gwent in general is a game of wits and bluffing much more than brute force. However, no other faction hinges on deception like Nilfgaard does. They rely heavily on the use of Spy cards to sabotage the opponent.

When playing Niflgaard, you can actually reveal the cards from your opponent’s hand, and you can reshuffle both your and your opponent’s deck. There are also a lot of cards that synergize with disloyal cards (aka spy cards) and card reveals. They usually get some sort of bonus whenever a card is revealed, or something to that effect.

As for direct attacks, Nilfgaard mostly concentrates on pinging and/or destroying more powerful cards.
