There are a bewildering number of different decks to build from the vast array of characters from Marvel Snap. But which one will help you win the most matches? That’s the golden question. We spoke to creator Ben Broad for the scoop on three of his best decks and his favorite overall cards.
Deck 1 – “Omega” Deck
“Okay, the deck I was playing today was the Omega Red deck, it’s a mean deck,” says Broad. “There’s a combo. The combo is 3 cards. Omega Red, Iron Man, and Onslaught. Because in that combo, Omega Red has 5 powers, Iron Man doubles it, and then Onslaught doubles it again.” , there is a huge amount of power in the place.So it’s like trying to make sure you get the place.However, Onslaught also doubles Omega Red’s power.Omega Red’s ability is 10 points or higher. If you’re winning, you get +4 power elsewhere.When you use Onslaught, you get +8 power in your location.”
“So this is how the deck works. On turn two, you play Invisible Woman somewhere. And on turns four, five, six, you do a combo. But your opponent doesn’t see it coming at all.” They don’t know they lost the place because they don’t. You have eight more powers than you think, so you basically only have turns 1 and 3 to do anything other than Invisible Woman, Omega Red, Iron Man, and Onslaught.”
“So turn 1 play like Ebony Maw somewhere, turn 3 play like Punisher or Mr. Fantastic. Get as much power as you can so that the plus 8 power wins in the end.It’s a lot of fun and Invisible Woman has other kinds of combos that are really cool.Play Invisible Woman on turn 2 and I was able to play Ebony Maw on turn 3. His disadvantage isn’t revealed until the end of the game, so it doesn’t really matter.1 energy gives 7 power, but he You don’t have to worry about the downsides of
Deck 2 – “Butthead” Deck
“Okay, this deck used to be called Dickwad, but my son was offended, so I changed the name to Butthead,” laughs Broad. “So here’s the deck. There’s a lot of really mean cards. So I’ll play Hood and Viper. So I’ll play Hood, then I’ll give you Hood. I’m playing Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Polaris, so I’m basically trying to lock myself out of a few places, and I’m playing a ton of cards like Spider-Woman, Hazmat, Black Widow, etc. It clogs the board and makes all cards negative power.
“I play Korg, one of my favorite cards because I can draw rocks. It’s very satisfying. And I play Carnage because I want to take advantage – Viper over the hood. If I can’t, or I have too many rocks on my side due to debris – I can remove them with Carnage.
Deck 3 – “Beast” Deck
“So I was experimenting with this deck,” explains Brode. “I don’t know how good it is, but I was playing around with it. I was trying to make a Beast and Falcon deck, so the deck has a lot of cheap cards. The most expensive card in the deck is cost 3. This There are no 4, 5, or 6 cost cards in the deck.”
“The Beast returns the other cards to his hand, making them cost 1 less, so he can free the 1-cost cards that way. The Falcon then returns them again, but they still cost 1 less.” It’s free So you can play them multiple times I’m playing Iceman I’m playing Korg I’m playing Electra I’m playing Hood I’m a collector I always have cards Black Widow is really fun to play over and over because you can stop your opponent from drawing cards by keeping playing Black Widow over and over again. I play Ironheart, Nakia, and Debris, and they’re simple reveal-only cards that benefit from playing multiple times.”
“Since you’re playing cards, you don’t need cards that cost 4, 5, 6. You’re bouncing over and over again, so you have a lot of cards. Very rude, Black Widow is to play , then Iceman, and then catch the widow’s bite on Iceman.
Ben’s favorite card
“My favorite card is Mysterio. Mysterio is actually one of the earliest cards that was designed over four years ago. You’ve highlighted what a game is, haven’t you?”
Playing Mysterio makes him a 5 power card with 2 energy. very powerful. But he disguises and does another of his two disguises in another location, so your opponent doesn’t know where you played Mysterio. Only 3 of Mysterio’s question mark cards are shown for him. And they have to make guesses like, “Where did he play that real Mysterio?”
“Sometimes you can make it obvious, but you actually play really unremarkable things, really bad. And they’re like, ‘Oh, he definitely would have played like .. There was a kiln and he needed to gain some power there before the place was locked down, so obviously he played in the kiln’. you messed with it But in the end, I actually brought him here. I sacrificed the giraffe so that you play really badly in the future.So there are some very interesting mind games on that card. I think it’s just charming. ”
So these are the three decks currently in use by Marvel Snap creator Ben Brode. We hope they gave you some ideas of your own in the fight for control in the Marvel Card Universe.
