Best Meta Decks in MARVEL SNAP (January 2024) – Planet Hulk

Different deck setups frequently evolve in MARVEL SNAP and every player is looking for the ones that work well and gets to higher ranks.

I review, test and tweak common decks frequently and keep them ranked here so you will always see an up-to-date overview of the different decks that run the meta so you can always play a great deck in MARVEL SNAP without having to test them yourself, get outdated decks somewhere else on other sites (as every update changes decks and meta a lot) and also explain how to play those decks correctly.

Best Decks in MARVEL SNAP

What makes a deck a good deck in MARVEL SNAP? Well, overall it’s about synergies between cards and how you play it that makes a deck a good deck. Please don’t expect that there are decks out there that will win you every single match, it’s about long-term progress and losing matches, even multiple in a row, also happens to the best players with the strongest decks.

MARVEL SNAP is pretty balanced and also fair for all players so your edge comes by playing a good deck with synergies as well as knowing how to play it.

Please also mind, some decks a a great opportunity that you can win matches with a snap as they have their strong and surprising win condition at the end that your opponent might not expect – those decks perform well but also might be more squishy when it comes to losing streaks. It depends how you play the game, if you like those kinds of decks and are okay with losing streaks without tilting, go for them. But I also have decks below that focus more on consistent wins.

How are the decks ordered?

So, there are different categories of decks that work well in the meta and that’s how I grouped them here so you can get some insights how the decks are played and once you find one fits your style, you find the more in-depths guides linked – otherwise, this would here simply be a guide with tens of thousands of words and reading or finding anything here basically impossible.

Evo Skaar – Tier SS

Pairings High Evolutionary along Skaar seems to crush this season so far along a few other decks and is on top for me in MARVEL SNAP right now

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Darkhawk Annihilus – Tier SS

Darkhawk along Ms Marvel setups has already show last Season that they have potential but with the recent balancing, they have become one of the most lethal combo decks in Marvel SNAP this season.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Evo Infinaut – Tier S

A very classic deck that is sticking around for quite a while now as new cars continously seem to support this archetype. Evo Infinaut is among others this season really doing well, even better than in last season in marvel SNAP where they already did good.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Marvelhawk – Tier S

A very classic version of the deck that is working really well and you really don’t need many new and fancy cards to play this deck which is for me still one of the best ones this season.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Shuri Sauron Slam – Tier S

Shuri is back, ladies and gentlemen! Several Shuri Decks work well this season and while Shuri was viable last season, this season she is back very strong!

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Shuri Skaar – Tier A

Build a lot of power and at the same time grow your caler cards

Missing Cards for this deck?!

SurfHeart – Tier A

Silver Surfer also has a part of the meta with a classic archetype of decks still working well

Honest Destroy – Tier A

If you want to rock with destroy this season, X-23 is the card you have to use. This is the most solid destroy deck in MARVEL SNAP right now!

Missing Cards for this deck?!

High – Tier A

Classic High Evo deck that is also doing quite well right now

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Thanos Skaar – Tier A

Still working this season but took quite a dip compared to last season in MARVEL SNAP but Thanos and Lockjaw are still a deck that works and can be played into the highest ranks if you know what you’re doing.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Absorbing Shaw – Tier A

Interesting archetype of deck that can cause quite some trouble for other decks if you enjoy this archetype

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Junkhawk – Tier A

Darkhawk, Darkhawk, Darkhawk… this season very strong and also works well as junk deck

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Skaarnihilus – Tier A

While Skaar and Annihilus where everywhere last season on top, they took quite a dip. They are still a great deck archetype in MARVEL SNAP but others simply have a lead.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Loki Bounce – Tier B

Loki was very niche past season but along Bounce he works a little bit more stable this season.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Stature Bolt – Tier B

Not anywhere in the meta for quite a while, not seems to be back and although not dominating, this deck in the right hands can make it to the highest ranks in Marvel SNAP this season.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Big Green Meanies – Tier B

Big Green worked better previous season but is still here in the meta as a solid deck to run.

Blob Ramp – Tier B

Blob was everywhere last season in Marvel Snap and has been affected a lot by the balancing. Still works but far less effective as previous season.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Lockdown – Tier B

Lockdown is still working in the meta with the right setup and can still work against the top decks as you can effectively prevent them to either play their massive power or force them to keep their negative power cards so you can do some massive cube gains by snapping back early snaps.

Missing Cards for this deck?!

Auto Skaar – Tier B

You might have encountered this deck in the previous season in Marvel Snap and this season this deck still works with the discard line along the other cards that make it less predicatble and give you more flexibility

Leech Evolved – Tier B

Evo Leech did work in Conquest last season and it has now swapped over to ranked mode as well. Not the top deck but one that works in the right hands and can be really devastating to deal with

Bounce Decksmarvel snap best bounce decks 2023

Bounce decks are a ton of fun to play and a newer archetype of decks in Marvel Snap and flexible while still able to develop a ton of power on the board. You normally play cards that boucen back like Kitty Pryde along scaler cards like Angela or Bishop and finally Hit Monkey for a ton of power on the board.

Destroy Decks

Destruct decks are so much fun to play – they synergize around cheaper cards that gain benefits when being destroyed and cards that can destroy your own cards to snowball. They are flexible and powerful and, in my opinion, the most fun to play in Marvel Snap. Typical cards you play in these decks are Venom, Deathlok or Carnage. Famous destruct decks are decks like Deathpool Venom, Two-Lane Destroyer or the classic Carnage Deathlok deck.

Discard Decks

Discard decks in Marvel Snap work a little differently than destruct decks as they work around discarding cards in your hand that will gain power through that. So, you have cheaper cards that have the ‘downside’ of discarding cards from your hand and when they discard one of the key cards, your hand gets stronger. Less obvious than destruct decks but as effective! You see cards here like Blade, Sword Master, Lady Sif or Apocalypse.

Move Decks

Move decks in Marvel Snap have a lot of cards that are mobile themself or can move other cards around along with cards that gain power when they get moved. This is not only fun to play (and effective), this also gives you the ability to switch your cards around on the last turn and take over locations leaving your opponent no chance. Important cards you see in these decks are Heimdal, Cloak, Iron Fist or Doctor Strange.

Ongoing Decksmarvel snap best ongoing decks

These style of decks use cards with ongoing effects to buff each other up and snowball towards the finish line victory, using cards that will give all other cards additional power. They are less rng than other decks and require less surprise elements and work consistently. Don’t listen to players calling them boring, they are effective and work even with higher pool enemies, too. These decks use cards like Kazar, Blue Marvel, Spectrum or Devil Dino.

Disrupt Decksmarvel snap best disruption decks pool 1 - pool 3 guide

Disrupt decks are more than just troll decks and getting a read on your opponent and destroying their synergies to win is a solid and also powerful strategy in Marvel Snap that you should give a try (also if you’re not into playing a disrupt deck to learn how they work).

Control Decksmarvel snap best control decks pool 1 - pool 3

Control decks evolve around certain cards that will limit the ability of your opponent to play his hand – this can be with cards that limit playing one card per turn or changing the energy costs. These cards typically work well as your deck is built around the fact to work with these control effects active, but your opponent just get limited too much to make a proper win condition out of his deck.
