Special thanks to Gnurrgard for inspiring this project by sharing his knowledge on CCG theory and giving us continued feedback.

Gwent is split into six factions: Monsters, Nilfgaard, Northern Realms, Skellige, Scoia'tael and Syndicate. A Constructed deck can only be assembled from the cards of one of these factions in addition to a wide range of factionless cards called Neutral cards.

The Novigrad expansion also introduced a number of dual-faction cards that can each be used with Syndicate and up to one other, additional faction.
