Are you looking for a deck that you can play with Bucky Barnes in it in Marvel Snap? Bucky Barnes can open up some interesting possibilities so I feel you will like this guide here – please mind, this guide here is getting the good decks directly from my popular meta decks list and gets updated each time I update my meta decks (at last once or twice per week), so you will never find any outdated decks here that are not flagged as old and outdated.

Is Bucky Barnes A Good Card in MARVEL SNAP?

Bucky Barnes needs to be destroyed to become Winter Soldier, a 6-power card. So, his ssynergy is strong in any deck where you have destroy cards to drop on him..

Bucky Barnes in the current meta: Depends hevily how well destroy archetype decks do but you always find some destroy elements in meta decks so Bucky barnes is somewhat always around..

Good Synergies with Bucky Barnes

Nova also benefits being destroyed along Bucky Barnes as you will gain +1 power for all cards on the board. Make sure to play Nove after Bucky Barnes, so Winter Soldier also gets the +1 power. Read more about playing Nova here.
The Hood also benefits a ton from being destroyed as you want the Demon you get when playing The Hood – getting rid of the negative power is a plain benefit. Read more about playing The Hood here.
Deadpool want to be destroyed as often as possible to scale up, so why not take that synergy in along Bucky Barnes? They go well together. Read more about playing Deadpool here.
Carnage is a great way to destroy Bucky Barnes to get Winter Soldier. If you can add some more low-cost cards in there you can even scale up Carnage to become a 8-power card. Read more about playing Carnage here.
Deathlok is one of the most-frequent played card with Bucky Barnes. You can drop Bucky Barnes on Turn 2 and then Turn 3 drop Deathlok and you have 11 power for easy 5 energy spent over the early turns. Read more about playing Deathlok here.

The Best Bucky Barnes Decks

The decks here are ranked by how well the decks perform in the current meta. As I said earlier in this guide, the table will get updated every time I update the meta deck tier list here automatically!


  • Galactus DestroyerB+
    Use destory cards to build power and also the negative power cards against your opponent to see how the board develops and with Shuri you can then decide if you want to either play negative on your opponents side and finish with Nimrod and Destroyer or double up Galactus on a weak location.Future Prediction: Galactus with Destroyer and tons of lines to play seems to make a slow comeback into the meta and is the only Galactus deck taht is really viable in the meta right now.How to play this deck
  • Deathpool Venom DestroyB+
    Using many destroy synergies, this deck can devlop a lot of power and also handle quite some controlling locations and cards your opponent might throw your way. Overall also a ton of fun to play when you scale up your cards well.Future Prediction: This deck seem to have found a niche-spot in the meta and falls off a little more recently but can still do well in climbing ranks. Still not a deck you will see much in the highest ranks but we'll see what Phoenix Force does with the classic destroy archetype decks in the coming days...How to play this deck
  • Handsize Destroy
    This is bascially a deck that won't play much on synergy but more on using cards that have great value on their own. Great for beginner players that haven't have many cards unlocked and still working well to compete with other decks and reach a solid rank.Future Prediction: Depends a little on the cards performance but I update with every season/balancing change.How to play this deckMore Destroy Decks
  • DeathWave
    DeathWave is incredibly powerful as you enable your win conditions from both side. Destroy cards and gain synergy there will make your Wave cheaper as well as every unspent energy reduced She-Hulk's cost. With Wave you can then reduce their cost to 4 energy plus their reduction, so sometimes you can drop both of them for something like 2-3 energy n total to overtake locations on the last turn easily.Future Prediction: DeathWave seems to be more in business since Wave has become a way stronger card in the meta recently and with all the versatile options you have here now. Probably the most accessible deck high in the meta right now.How to play this deckMore Destroy Decks
  • 2-Lane Destroyer
    A different Pool 3 version of a very good destruct deck is this one here, using Destroyer as the final card. This deck is really interesting as you also use cards to block destroy effects like Armor or Cosmo to make that strong final-turn move. What I like about this deck specifically is that it's not that obvious early on that you're playing a destroy deck so your opponent will get a weaker read on your next moves. In my opinion also a really strong deck that's absolutely worth giving a shot.Future Prediction: Has been getting better, espcially as you see Armor and Cosmo being played by other players, too and this will rather help you than disrupt youHow to play this deck
  • P2 Destroy
    This is a progressive evolution of the Pool 1 Destruct deck (see below) using some cool new cards that you can unlock in Pool 2. The general destruct cards stay the same, but you can play Killmonger to gain benefits but also counter other decks (like Zoo decks or other destruct decks). With Shang.Chi you can disarm locations easily that use high-power cards or power up early and Hobgoblin can ruin a location for your opponent out of nowhere effectively.Future Prediction: Not outstanding but performing alright given the fact that you use very early cards only in this deck.How to play this deck
  • She-Hulk Baero
    A great destruct deck where you can gain value directly of your cheap cards (Hood, Bucky Barnes) or feed them cheap into Carnage while reducing the cost of your Death card. With Wave on Turn 5 you can even get Death to 0-cost on Turn 6. The good thing here is, even without drawing into that line, you have Leader to copy your opponent, Aero to move his final push away or She-Hulk to find your win condition.Future Prediction: I ranked it down a little as many control cards are out there to make it hard for destroy decks to be really popular right now.How to play this deckMore Destroy Decks
  • Destruct x2
    Revive one of your destroyed cards on Turn 5 for a nice extra flexible card on Turn 6.Meta Dependency: Potential deck for playing Phoenix Force, we have to see how well it performs in the meta.How to play this deck
  • DeathstroyD
    Using many destroy synergies, this deck can devlop a lot of power and also handle quite some controlling locations and cards your opponent might throw your way. Overall also a ton of fun to play when you scale up your cards well.Future Prediction: Destroy has eaten itself into the meta as quite an accessible niche deck and if you like destroy, this is the deck you can run quite successfully right nowHow to play this deck
