What are the best Marvel Snap decks? The latest season of Marvel Snap is here, introducing new cards, variants, and much more to help spruce up the meta. If you’re wondering which existing decks these new cards fit with, or which new meta decks they might create, you’re in the right place.

The Marvel Snap meta is constantly changing. Whether you’re a grizzled veteran well into series four or five, you’re still unlocking deck staples or you’re getting to grips with how all the cards interact in one of the best card games on PC, we’re here to help. We have a list of all the best decks in the Marvel Snap meta currently, followed by the best beginner decks for new players.

Best Marvel Snap decks

For the most part, the best meta decks in Marvel Snap require you to have completed Series 3 and have a significant chunk of Series 4 and Series 5 cards. This is because your options for different deck archetypes open up enormously once you reach this stage, but there are usually one or two alternative you can use instead for a similar result.

The best decks in current Marvel Snap meta are:

One of the best Marvel Snap decks including the Gwenpool card.

New card – Gwenpool

  • America Chavez
  • Forge
  • Okoye
  • Brood
  • Silver Surfer
  • Nakia
  • Phastos
  • Sebastian Shaw
  • Gladiator
  • Absorbing Man
  • Gwenpool
  • Sera

Gwenpool is new card this season which buffs a card in your hand three times. It’s a 4-power card, so the goal is to play a bunch of the cheaper cards on turn six once they’ve had their cost reduced by Sera. You’re looking at something like America Chavez then Okoye, before Nakia or Phastos, then Gwenpool. Finally, you’re hoping Sera at turn five to then reduce the cost of Brood, Silver Surfer, and Sebastian Shaw.

One of the best Marvel Snap decks with the move mechanic, featuring Iron Fist, Vulture, and more.

Move

  • America Chavez
  • Iron Fist
  • Nightcrawler
  • Forge
  • Kraven
  • Doctor Strange
  • Hulk Buster
  • Multiple Man
  • Cloak
  • Vulture
  • Vision
  • Heimdall

This is a classic, but with Vulture being a great card, it never gets old. What’s more, since it’s so old, it doesn’t get used very much any more, and people won’t expect to see it in the current meta. There are a lot of options here, so you shouldn’t be too restricted by an unlucky draw – just remember to prepare for Heimdall on the last turn. If you don’t draw it, the low cost of your other cards leaves you with other options.

Twelve cards that make up the best Destroy Marvel Snap deck in the current meta.

Destroy

  • Deadpool
  • Nova
  • Bucky Barnes
  • Carnage
  • Wolverine
  • Hulk Buster
  • Killmonger
  • Venom
  • Deathlok
  • Shang-Chi
  • Knull
  • Death

Destroy decks seem to be among the most resilient Marvel Snap decks, appearing frequently regardless of the current meta. With the Deadpool season now live, we’re seeing even more of a surge in the destroy meta given Deadpool’s own power.

One of the best Marvel Snap decks including Hela in the current meta.

Hela Discard

  • America Chavez
  • Blade
  • Lady Sif
  • Dracula
  • Jubilee
  • Black Cat
  • Blink
  • Hela
  • Magneto
  • Giganto
  • The Infinaut
  • Death

Hela is still a strong favorite in the current meta – and every meta, at that. This is a classic Hela deck, making the most of some of the highest value cards available. As always with Hela, the risk comes in discarding Hela by mistake, but you have Dracula, The Infinaut, and Death to counter that if needed.

One of the best Marvel Snap decks containing Wong in the current meta.

Wong

  • Ravonna Renslayer
  • Psylocke
  • Zabu
  • Magik
  • Ironheart
  • Venom
  • Mystique
  • Wong
  • White Tiger
  • Black Panther
  • Arnim Zola
  • Odin

The big problem with this deck is that it can be countered by a Shang-Chi or Enchantress, among others, but most decks can be countered if you’re unlucky. When this work, it works great, so it can be worth the risk. What’s more, there are multiple options, even if you’re left with playing a simple Ironheart, Wong, White Tiger, Odin at one location, you could still take the win, but your early game cards are in there to boost things even more, and while Magik instead of of Ironheart can allow you to either play Ironheart after Wong, or Black Panther and White Tiger together.

One of the best beginner's decks in Marvel Snap, including on-reveal cards like Odin, White Tiger, and Medusa.

Best Marvel Snap beginner decks

These beginner Marvel Snap decks exclusively use cards that you start the game with and those in Pool 1, which is from collection levels 18-214 in the card game. There are many cards to choose from with these parameters. If there are any you’re missing in your chosen deck list, you’re early enough in the game that replacing a few of them won’t ruin the deck’s playstyle too much.

Beginner On-Reveal deck

  • Nightcrawler
  • Elektra
  • Ant-Man
  • Medusa
  • Star Lord
  • Groot
  • Ironheart
  • Wolfsbane
  • White Queen
  • Gamora
  • White Tiger
  • Odin

This Pool 1 deck focuses mainly on On-Reveal abilities, which are effects that happen as soon as you play the card. Once again, Odin is the show’s star, while Gamora and Ironheart are also vital inclusions.

Beginner Ongoing deck

All twelve cards to make the best ongoing beginner Marvel Snap deck in the current meta.

  • Ant-Man
  • Nightcrawler
  • Lizard
  • Iron Man
  • Colossus
  • Sentinel
  • Mister Fantastic
  • Captain America
  • Blue Marvel
  • The Punisher
  • Klaw
  • Spectrum

On the flip side of the On-Reveal deck, this Ongoing decklist focuses on effects that are constantly happening when that card is in play. Blue Marvel and Devil Dinosaur share the spotlight, or if you’re lucky enough to get extra energy or the Limbo location, which grants a turn seven, you can get both in play at once.
