Patch 9.1 marks the halfway between expansion chapters and has been influenced by the the release of WitcherCon’s special card Sunset Wanderers, which has become the favourite card for non-devotion decks.
Syndicate is the top tier faction of this patch, thanks to Jackpot and Lined Pockets. Meanwhile, Nilfgaard has suffered drastic changes and Tactical Decision has become the most used leader ability, with the consequent meta shift.
On a slightly lower level, we can find Northern Realms, Skellige and Monsters. While SK and MN are heavily focused on a single archetype, NR has a wide variety of viable strategies.
Scoia’tael is the worse faction right now, almost not appearing on the ladder. Its current state will require some help from CDPR to improve its power level.
