As far as decks go, this one was the most fun to play around with. Monsters work very differently, at least as far as I found in the PS4 technical Beta for Gwent, to all the other decks. The reason Monsters are so different is that they are sneaky and they are brutal in ways that soldiers and men simply aren’t, and I guess that has to carry across to the cards in a universe like Gwent’s just because of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt alone.
In this video I come up against a couple of different decks, on of which is another Monster deck which is incredibly interesting and very hard to play at the same time. Honestly though what you need to be thinking about with this deck at all times is, ‘what is my game plan for the next round?’ I found it easier to skip rounds and win the next one rather than bother fighting it out for a round entirely. Indeed I’m sure there are many points where the enemy wipes out my score and I just fold for that round altogether.
If you don’t know when to quit in Gwent then this deck is great for you. It teaches you that it’s better to get a couple of cards down on the table, in a certain order, then skip the round than fight it out for glory and be left with nothing, or skip the round just because your opponent spammed out a Geralt. As I said before, Monsters are sneaky, but they’re also really easy to play against once you know where their strengths lie. For example, Fog is a great card to have as Monsters because it pulls out every single Foglet you have in your deck. If you have an Ancient Foglet, you better play it with some Fog, because it’ll give you free additional points every time you begin a round. However, it’s easy to rely on cards such as the Ancient Foglet, and it’s very easy for an opponent to destroy them, and your score, with something akin to Scorch that’ll wipe out you best cards(s).
