A keyword introduced in the Way of the Witcher expansion. The keyword is written as "Adrenaline X" and means that the card effect following this text activates only if the player has X or fewer cards in their hand. For example, "Adrenaline 3: Also gain Immunity" works only if we have 3 or fewer cards in hand. Note that Adrenaline checks for the number of cards in the player's hand at the time the effect activates. For deploy abilities, the card itself is deducted from your hand count and activated abilities check the number of cards in your hand when they are selected.




JMJWilson made his first forray into the world of CCG's with Gwent and has been hooked ever since. Since July 2018, he has competed in the game's Pro Rank scene and has participated in most online qualifiers since the official release of Gwent. Wilson serves as a content creator for Aretuza, especially focusing on the monthly Meta Snapshot and the Aretuza Academy projects. He seeks to bring the same analytical mindset to content creation as he does to his own gameplay with the goal of improving others' gameplay experience in whatever way is possible. With the implementation of Gwent Masters Season 2, Wilson aspires to continue his trend of being a consistent competitor in Gwent Masters qualifiers while also remaining committed to coverage of the game's highest level of competition.
