Gwen Katarina Deck Guide

Hey, it’s Scissorsbox back again with another Gwen deck guide – in this case, updating a guide I did four months ago on a deck that has been a staple of the Runeterra meta after it was discovered by the end of Forces from Beyond, and one of the best LoR decks for ladder and Tournaments since then: Gwen Katarina, also known as Red Gwen.

Tempo is essentially the momentum of a match, and a Tempo deck aims to use its mana to develop its gameplan, or disrupt the opponent’s gameplan, in an efficient manner.
