KingBlackToof has revealed another card that will be coming to the game in an upcoming patch. Bekker’s Twisted Mirror is a Gold, Epic, Special card that Swaps the strength of the strongest and the weakest units on the battlefield. Ties are resolved randomly.
I’ve added all of the currently revealed cards from the upcoming patch to our Gwent Card Database! What this means is you can now add them to decks and begin to theorycraft builds for the next patch.

I had to kind of piecemeal together some of the cards so the art isn’t full in some cases! Some of the rarities might be incorrect.
Swap the strength of the strongest and the weakest unit on the battlefield. Ties are resolved randomly.
Choose 3 adjacent units on the opposing Melee or Ranged row. Move all non-Gold units among them one row back, then remove 1 strength from all moved units.
Destroy 3 non-Gold units on your side and absorb their strength as base. When removed, set base strength to 8 (even when Locked).
Set the strength of the unit on the right (if non-Gold) to that of the unit on the left (if non-Gold).
Remove 1 strength from a random opposing non-gold unit whenever a non-Ambush Elf unit appears on your side.
A new card has been revealed by KingBlackToof on YouTube. Renew is a Neutral card that allows you to Resurrect a Gold Unit.
A couple more new cards have been revealed, which should be coming in the next Closed Beta patch. Keira Metz and the King of Beggars! These cards were revealed via Zagrajmy z Gimperem’s YouTube.
Two more new cards were revealed: Quen Sign and Katakan! The cards were revealed via a Russian Stream and credit to /u/ifhbr0 on Reddit for the translations/images.
Every 3 turns, banish a random non-gold unit in your graveyard and absorb its strength.
Give all instances of a non-gold unit on your side a shield. The shield protects its bearer from one strength-removing effect.
Protects all non-Gold units in a selected row from any damaging special cards.
Play weakest card from your deck (draws are solved randomly).
Some new cards have been revealed today. Two were revealed via Polish YouTuber Ojciec Dwójki Dzieci, and two via the Commander’s Horn Podcast. The translations for Iris Von Everc and Mardroeme seem slightly off, I’m looking into getting official word on those.
If destroyed increase strength of all units on the opposite side by 3.
Create one of the two cards – Mutagen: Increase base strength of unit on your side (excluding gold ones) by 4. -Spores: Decrease base strength of unit on your opponents side (excluding golds) by 4.

The Gwent Stress Test is live and they’ve just announced that we’re allowed to talk about the game and share information from it. So, I thought it would be a good idea to grab the cards from the updated game and share them with you here. Some of these cards have been seen before, but some are new and a lot have new text. Be sure to check them out below!
Gwent “Kill the Servers” Stress Test Cards
Choose a non-Gold unit in your hand (other than the Operator). Create an exact copy in both players' hands. Banish when moved to the graveyard.
Spawn a Frost effect on both Melee rows that decreases the strength of all non-immune units on or appearing there to 1. Units regain all strength removed by Frost when Frost is removed or they move out of it.
Here’s a current list of revealed cards from the upcoming Gwent – The Witcher Card Game. I’ll be adding more cards as they are revealed and come available!
We’ve learned some things early in the release process, one is that the Spy mechanic has been significantly changed from the Witcher 3 version of the card. Spy was one of the major ways to gain extreme card advantage with very little downside. The Spy Mechanic now reads as follows (at least in Dijkstra’s case), “When Played: Draw 2 cards from your Deck, one face up and one face down. Pick one card and put it in your Hand. Return the other to your Deck.” Spy cards used to read, “Place on your opponent’s battlefield (counts towards your opponent’s total) and draw 2 cards from your deck.” As you can see, that was pretty insane and lead to players being able to basically draw through your deck.
