With Olgierd getting nerfed does this mean Cerys will get slightly buffed or is she going to be unplayable from now on?

All of these changes sound good.
Slave Drivers becoming targeted removal whose damage can be controlled... now that sounds like an interesting and potentially tactical card.

You can use her with discard raiders and quensguards.

So basically, alchemy and GS remain at the top.

One thing, though. Wardancer triggers when it swaps. Does this mean that mulliganing it away won't trigger it?

If CDPR fix the matchmaking too then maybe this game has a future.

Alchemy? Without Slave Drivers? Good luck with that.

Mulligan is no longer equivalent to swap. So yes. You can't mulligan wardancer for unstoppable carryover. It has to be swapped during the round.

Slave drivers are just used as bodies for ale. I'm sure they can be replaced with something else. Runestone's crap now, thankfully. It'll take some tweaking but I'm sure alchemy will stay good, especially with greatswords running rampant.

Seriously, what's with the SK love at CDPR? One of the best decks in the game receive no nerfs? And by best I mean broken. No one thought corsairs needed a nerf? It's a faction that spams stuff and then resurrects stuff. Do they really need corsairs with all the other revives? Can't wait for 6 months of Greatswords...

You are playing a different game, my friend.

What I like:
- Mulligan/swap as separate features.
- Brouver no longer being able to pull Yaevinn (why this wasn't hotfixed ages ago is beyond me).
- CA changes in general.
- Harder to get carry-over without explicitly playing it in the prior round.
- Henselt machines getting nerfed into the ground. I actually like Henselt machines, but Henselt is such an interesting leader and can do so much more than just spam machines.
- Bronze create is dead.
- Silver create still exists but is a lot less consistent.

What I dislike:
- Lack of balance changes to SK greatswords. This should get countered by hard control (and with slave driver offering up some control options NG vs SK might be an auto-win for NG).
- Winch now boosts all machines by three. Machine swarm to the level where this would be useful doesn't exist anymore. Winch is basically a dead card now.

Some things I wish for:
1. Nerf for Isengrim Outlaw - create pool is way too limited and it has weather clear, lock, row movement and resurrect (hatori) all in the pool.
2. All ST bronzes are still unconditional 12-14 (sometimes even more), new scout into WD is 13, half elf hunter is 12, etc. This isn't true with other faction bronzes, which need multiple turns or specific board states to get 12 value. Some point buff is needed for many other bronzes in other factions or 1-2 point nerf is needed for cards like HE hunter, which also provides 2 elf bodies, vrihedd officer / vanguard, etc.
3. Slave driver, doppler, runestone, black blood and possibly olgierd are absolutely trash now in both constructed and arena. They are basically deleted from the game.
