Brouver Shupe is a deck that was first introduced after the Midwinter Update in December 2017. However, it did not reach its full prominence in the meta until Saber97’s guide on April 2018, and further innovation by high-ranking Chinese players in May 2018. After that, it quickly rose in popularity, culminating in Gwent Open #6 where six out of eight players (including the winner, Kolemoen, and runner-up, proNEO) were equipped with it. However, Brouver Shupe then fell out of the meta, becoming much less popular as a ladder and tournament pick.
This article will track the rise and fall of Brouver Shupe, and how this has been impacted by the changing tournament meta.
