Gwent just entered open beta last week but it is not too soon to start talking about what cards you should be aiming to collect as soon as possible.
As a reminder, a single deck can only hold a maximum of six Silver cards. Kegs purchased with Ore do give you random cards, and there is the possibility that you are able to snag some of the ones mention here with ease.
However, if you are not interested in clashing with lady luck, there is always the crafting aspect of Gwent. Just remember to not be reckless and waste precious resources on premium versions of the card you are interested in.
