Gwent: Master Mirror expansion announced by CD Projekt RED

A new expansion has been announced for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game by CD Projekt RED, and this one is all about Master Mirror. Much like other expansion packs there will be new cards and new mechanics, but there will also be the introduction of evolving cards for each faction deck. These evolving cards evolve during battles and can become more dangerous the longer they are out on the field of play. A trailer for the new expansion has been released.

The description for Master Mirror says:

He’s always been there, quietly pulling at fate’s strings, his evil touch creeping its way into key events in the Continent’s history. From the Empire of Nilfgaard, to the Northern Realms, to the isles of Skellige and beyond, his influence knows no bounds. You may be tempted to try to defy the diabolical trickster, but in the end all will play by his rules and all will bend to his will. He is Master Mirror, and it is he who decides how the story plays out.

The new cards include Master Mirror which has the Deploy ability to summon a legendary faction card that is not in your starting deck. Master Mirror is joined by Marlene Da Trastemara which can give a unit Veil, Tyrggui Tuirseach which gives enemy units Rupture, Oneiromancy that can play any card from the deck using the Echo ability, and Oakcritters that have two abilities and both of those can be activated using Devotion.Other abilities include Conspiracy which makes the card’s ability stronger when target is a Spying unit,  and Symbiosis where a Treant is spawned whenever a nature card is played whose power will be equal to the number of Symbiosis controlled cards in a random row.

The Master Mirror expansion will be available to purchase from June 30th.
