Good evening Gwent Players, I'm Cricket and today I want to do a different stream highlight, because it showcases something, I've been seeing a lot these last days. According to Gwent up, Henselt is currently going strong with 53% win rate and also the popularity is rising. Which I can confirm, since half my matches today were against Henselt. And then there are Radovid and Foltest, which makes you play against Northern Realms most most of the time. I've not seen one Henselt deck without Villentretenmerth and even Foltest, Radovid start running it. What is new though is, that they run scorch as well, which enables a double scorch in round 3 for them. Especially when you play Veterans, this is devastating, so it's important to be aware of that fact and play around it. For example: Playing a Veteran deck, it is most important to win round 1, so you can bleed the enemy in round 2 down to 1 card.
This way you force out a Villentretenmerth and Scorch won't win him the game in round 3, since you can play more and higher units. Just stagger them and don't play two Veterans or Skirmishers with the same value and you should be fine. I hope my following Highlight helps you to deal with the double scorch situation and also to defeat Henselt! Enjoy.
