The maximum number of provisions allowed in a deck.

A Constructed Gwent deck has a base recruit cap of 150. This means that the recruit cost of the cards in the deck must not exceed a total of 150. While a Constructed Gwent deck must have a minimum of 25 cards, this maximum number of provisions limits the number of cards a deck can use.

Each leader in the game adds a number of provisions to this base recruit cap. Leaders currently add between 10 and 19 provisions to the deck recruit cap.
