marvel snap best ebony maw decks

Are you looking for a deck that you can play with Ebony Maw in it in Marvel Snap? Ebony Maw 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list and gets updated each time I update my meta decks (at last once or twice per week), so you will never find any outdated decks here that are not flagged as old and outdated.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 Ebony Maw A Good Card in MARVEL SNAP?

With an amazing energy-power-ratio, Ebony Maw get the negative effect that he blocks your location and that you have to play him in the first turns. Still, you can use him so your opponent has to invest quite some resources to overcome while you can invest into more important things..

Ebony Maw in the current meta: There’s always some decks where you can play this, espcailly control archetype decks do well so he’s not bound to certain combos, enablers or cards to be good and you will see him frequently..

Good Synergies with Ebony Maw

Zero can be used to block Ebony Maw’s ongoing effect. You still have to play him before Turn 4 though but you can get a good tradeof (espcially if you don’t draw into any other card you would use Zero on, like Typhoid Mary or Red Skull). Read more about playing Zero here.
Invisible Woman can be used with Ebony Maw pretty well as you can drop him on top of her and still continue to play more cards in that location since his blocking effect will not get revealed. Read more about playing Invisible Woman here.
Sauron can block Ebony Maw’s abilities altogether and turn him into a plan 1-cost but 7-power card you can use throughout the match without limitations. Read more about playing Sauron here.
Doctor Doom is a great combo card as you can use the Doom Bots to go into Ebony Maw’s blocked location and increase the power there and catch your opponent off guard. Read more about playing Doctor Doom here.
White Tiger is also a great card to reach into Ebony Maw’s location later – the more you have filled the other locations the higher the chance it will reach in there so you can easily have 14 power there and overcome your opponent’s power. Read more about playing White Tiger here.
Jeff the Baby Land Shark can be played and moved into the locked location after you played Ebony Maw. Read more about playing Jeff the Baby Land Shark here.

The Best Ebony Maw 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!


  • shuri sauron iconShuri SauronB+
    With Shuri you can still build a lot of power and although itÄs more predictable, it still works and unless your opponent has something to directly counter in his hand, this deck is still alive and working.Future Prediction: Big loser compared to last week and a deck that struggles more recently again with the new cards and decks that are now able to build a ton of power and also lockdown Shuri a lot more frequently.How to play this deck
  • sandman kazoo iconSandman Kazoo
    The idea here is to flood the board early and by the time your opponent can play the more powerful cards, you limit down with Sandman and buff up your cards zoo-styleFuture Prediction: Still viable and useful and espcially for newer players absolutely a deck to check out, although falling out of the meta slowly but steady.How to play this deckMore Ongoing Decks
  • ongoing destroyer iconOngoing Destroyer
    The Destroyed Deck was always fun as you have this crazy push towards the end that turns around so much. Armor is very important to gain the lead in one location or Cosmo to prevent Destroyer to wipe out but still have the high power.Future Prediction: Not the latest deck and around for quite some time and working well but struggles more and more with the newer decks I recently added as they will compete for all locations and the Destroyer sometimes just doesn't have enough power to gain that win condition.More Destroy Decks
  • sauron sees all iconSauron Sees All
    Similar to the Shuri Zero deck, Sauron makes a great addition with some small changes so you can use all cards that have an ongoing effect that has a negative impact as Sauron will clear it.Future Prediction: Pretty strong but most synergies come from the way Shuri interacts with certain cards, so this deck does naturally well. It depends a lot on Sauron to be played but you can still make it work without him but as a new card you should always be a little cautious so I ranked it slightly lower than the Shuri zero deck.How to play this deck
  • shanna swarm iconShanna Swarm
    Shanna fitted into a swarm / zoo deck is a perfect fit and you will gain some reach with it.Future Prediction: Shanna is a little RNG but fun to play. You might see some spawned cards you don#t lik ebut most of the time you get some real value on the board that you can later buff up with your ongoing cards.How to play this deckMore Zoo Decks
  • spectrum wong iconSpectrum Wong
    basically all cards here have ongoing abilities you can boost with Spectrum on the last turn, but with Iron Man, Wong and Mystique, chances are very high that you can even double that to all like 8 power to each location and taking over.Future Prediction: less meta deck now, espcially with the control decks taking up more space in the meta but still a deck for early P3 players to start put and push to a decent rank.How to play this deck
  • wide wong black panther iconWide Wong Black Panther
    Early in a match you will try to lock down locations you have cards in that you can buff up with on reveal effects. The good part here is that you have White Tiger, Arnim Zola and Doctor Doom to reach into those locations easily later. Getting Wong down means basically you can double any card played after and they are strong and multiply and snowball heavily. If you don't pull Wong into your hand you're still able to use Black Panther, White Tiger, Arnim Zola or Doctor Doom and with Odin you still can double their on reveal by triggering it once more and having decent power as well.Future Prediction: I will remain this deck here as it doesn't seem it got affected by the recent balancing changes muchHow to play this deckMore Black Panther Decks
