A description given to a card that is good enough to be included in most, if not all, decks.
Cards or card packages are considered auto-include not just if they are strong enough but also if they are a logical stand-alone card that can be fit into a wide range of potentially very different decks, usually across a certain faction but sometimes across the entire meta. They often have a lot of utility; that is - they add something to the deck that will almost always be useful.
As a big fan of the Witcher franchise, SwanDive is always on the lookout for her next Witcher fix. She started playing Gwent in the Closed Beta for the lore – and stayed for the game and the community. Long an avid gamer, Swan found her passion for CCGs and competitive gaming at the Gwent table. Away from it, Swan is studying for her Master’s degree in English and worked as content manager for Team Aretuza.
