Is a straight cheese.

The AI always seems to have just the right miracle card to throw out to counter your final card. I was owning this merchant and his monster deck with frost cards and that Scorch 7 card. Then his last card turns out to be a Clear Weather card, lol.

Anyone else got rekt by the AI's final card?

If you play carefully AI will pass with 2 cards on its hand, those are scorch cards.
Play recklessly and you will get wrecked for sure.

Last played this game beginning of last year but if my memory serves me right just have x2 of the enemy faction weakness weather card (remove excess weather cards from deck) and play with a different row of units alongside special units.

In my experience from keeping weather cards right till the end until they use clear weather as a option or running out of cards ect, that normally tends to beat em.

But again from experience reloading will most likely become your save and grace during tournaments, *fu* spy cards :)

It's only hard when you start out coz your starter cards suck.
It's actually pretty easy once you have enough hero cards.

What I usually do is activate weather effects to screw up the opponent's cards & then I just spam the crap out of heroes as I save Geralt or Ciri for the final round since their card alone is usually enough to outrank whatever cards the CPU has left after you used weather effects to make them waste their cards.

I also always have at least 3 spy cards & two decoys that I use on the spies just to ensure that I have a bigger deck than the cpu does by the 2nd round.

Oh you should also save cards like Yenne's for the 2nd or 3rd round since her type of card is most effective after you've already wasted some of your strongest non-hero cards during the first round.

Yenne can bring back a card from the discarded pile into the battlefield. Her stats seem upper mid-tier but I find her to be one of the more useful cards since she almost always tips the scale in Ciri or Geralt's favor depending on which card she decides to draw from the discard pile.

Another good card is the one that eliminates the strongest melee card, even better if you have decoy coz you can use it more than once during the same round.

On the highest Gwent difficulty, I've seen the AI use both Scorch cards in the first round.

The AI throws out a 5.
I throw a 6.
AI - Scorch.
I throw a random card.
AI throws a counter card.
I throw a counter card.
AI - Scorch.

I'm honestly starting to enjoy the Nilfgaardian deck more since it seems like I can acquire hero and special cards for that deck the quickest.

I've been playing every merchant I can find. I even managed to beat that crazy Gwent dude in Vizima Palace or whatever it's called. The palace right before you go to Velen.

I'm midway through Novigrad and I only have two hero cards for my Northern Realms deck. Perhaps hings will get better once I get those Gwent cards from Zoltan's quest.

The only thing I like about Northern Realms is the extra card for winning a round perk.

maybe you didn't read because I wrote if you play carefully as I do: AI throw out a 5, I throw Gaunter O'Dimm darkness it's 4 point card, and it will muster 2 other Gaunter O'Dimm darkness cards, so enemy has a card with 5 point, I have 3 cards with total 12 points (3×4), and he can't scorch me.
And I will keep playing below his cards or if I can't, I will use hero card which he also can't scorch. At the end he will pass with 2 scorch cards still on his hand.
