Once you’ve played around with your starting deck, you should check out the best discard decks in Marvel Snap and win practically every game.

While a lot of the starting cards aren’t amazing, with this deck, you will be able to crush the early competition enough to unlock much better cards.

This is a deck built around getting lots of cards onto the field, with higher Cost cards boosting their attack in the final turn.

Wolfsbane will reach 7 Power if put next to three other cards, regardless of their Cost. Odin will also allow any cards with the On Reveal ability to redo their ability.

If done correctly, this will allow Medusa, Star-Lord, and Wolfsbane to gain more Power while also adding an extra 7 Power Tiger from White Tiger to the table.

Finally, Mister Fantastic guarantees you Power in all three lanes if put in the central location, and Cyclops offers decent Power for a low Cost.
