Welcome to Commander’s Horn, Episode 21, Hosted by Dane “McBeard” and Josh “Greyboxer.” What a huge episode! Our guests are CD Projekt Red’s Rethas, as well as appearances by Merchant, KingBlackToof, ChaoticPriest, and MegaMogwai.

This is an audio-only episode. Much of the audio is taken live from our hotel bar in Warsaw, and has a little background noise. Thanks for understanding 🙂

The hosts were flown to Warsaw, Poland this week to meet the Gwent team at CD Projekt Red headquarters. We are able to talk about all of the new content on Jan 30th, so episode 22 will be out early next week, and will be packed with new information, content, a video component, and an additional interview with Rethas.

19. Commander’s Horn: The Four Fourse-men

Welcome to Commander’s Horn, Episode 19, Hosted by Dane “McBeard” and Josh “Greyboxer.”

This is an audio-only episode.

The meta has settled down, and the competitive decks have carved out their place on the ladder. Sounds like a great time for McBeard and Greyboxer to experiment with underplayed cards, such as the newest faction silver cards released in 0.8.33. Are any of these cards sleeper hits? Join us as we talk about this, upcoming tournaments, and some speculation on the single-player campaign.
