Looking for the best Marvel Snap Silver Surfer deck list to take advantage of the three-cost card? Silver Surfer may look weak with no power himself, but he gives all other three-cost cards on the board +3 power, so if you’re stacking lots of three-cost cards, there’s some serious potential to snowball here.

Right now, decks that utilise Silver Surfer are some of the best Marvel Snap decks around, as the cards that feature in the season pass are typically very strong. Climbing the ladder in one of the best card games this year is no easy task, but if you got Silver Surfer from the season pass or were lucky enough to unlock him in the collection track, here’s the best Marvel Snap Silver Surfer deck in this free PC game.

Best Silver Surfer deck list

The best Marvel Snap Silver Surfer deck list is:

  • Forge
  • Silver Surfer
  • Bishop
  • Rogue
  • Wolfsbane
  • Brood
  • Mister Fantastic
  • Storm
  • Cosmo
  • Juggernaut
  • Maximus
  • Sera

On the face of it, the game plan here is simple; play three-cost cards, reduce the cost of them with Sera so you can play even more, then play Silver Surfer as your very final card on turn six for a huge swing. However, this deck also focuses on disrupting your opponent’s plan, with cards like Juggernaut, Cosmo, Storm, and Rogue all capable of causing mayhem one way or another. Having initiative is crucial for this deck though, so you don’t get ruined by an opponent’s Cosmo – learn about how that mechanic works with our Marvel Snap who reveals first guide.

The key interactions here are as follows:

  • Forge followed by Brood for three four-power cards for three energy.
  • Bishop played as early as possible.
  • Save Rogue for any potential ongoing effects your opponent will play.
  • Cosmo played wherever you are going to play Sera, so her ability doesn’t get stolen or nullified by Rogue or Enchantress.
  • Sera on turn five, followed by Maximus, Wolfsbane, and Silver Surfer on turn six is the ideal final turn.

Silver Surfer deck alternatives

If you’re missing any of the pool three cards, here are some potential replacements. Unfortunately, Sera is vital, as is Silver Surfer, but realistically any of the others can be switched out, especially for more three-cost cards. Other worthwhile inclusions are:

  • Ironheart
  • Kingpin
  • Captain America
  • Killmonger
  • Polaris
  • Lizard (to help gain reveal priority early on)

It’s worth noting that you can also include Mister Negative and Psylocke, then switch out a few of the high-statted three-cost cards – Cosmo, Storm, Juggernaut, and Mister Fantastic, for example – for ones with poor stats like Mystique and Ironheart. Iron Man also slots very nicely into a Negative Surfer deck, if you can copy his ability in the final turn with Mystique.

Now you know the best Marvel Snap Silver Surfer deck, make sure you know which cards are in each of the Marvel Snap pools, as they shuffle round fairly regularly. If you fancy a different deck to try out, our Marvel Snap Patriot deck list is what you want, or our Marvel Snap Wong deck helps you take advantage of on reveal effects. We also have a Marvel Snap tier list which covers all of the pool one cards ranked, if you’re still in the early stages of the game.
