  • Triss Merigold is a Legendary Neutral Gold card. When played, she removes 4 strength from any unit you pick, even a Gold one.
  • Dimeritium Bomb is a Rare Neutral Silver card. It resets all units on the board to their base strength, including Gold units.
  • Dijkstra is a Legendary Northern Realms Gold card. When played, he converts all other Gold cards to Silver, leaving them open for buffs (and debuffs).
  • Vernon Roche is a Legendary Northern Realms Gold card. He removes 5 strength from any, even Gold, opposing unit.
  • Kaedweni Sergeant is a Common Bronze Northern Realms card that works similar to Dijsktra, in that he converts any unit of your choice from Gold to Silver, but only one.
  • Radovid is a Northern Realms Leader card. He removes 10 strength from any opposing unit of your choice, Gold or otherwise.
  • Imlerith is a Legendary Monsters Gold card. When played, he removes 3 strength from one enemy unit and 1 strength from all other units on the row. This goes for Gold units as well.
  • Harald the Cripple is a Skellige Leader card. When played, he removes 4 strength from all wounded opposing units, even Gold. However, since it is difficult to wound a Gold card in the first place, this will rarely work.
