The BEST Galactus Decks + Synergies in MARVEL SNAP

marvel snap best galactus decks june 2023

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list and gets updated each time I update my meta decks (at last once or twice per week), so you will never find any outdated decks here that are not flagged as old and outdated.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

As a 6-cost card with low power himself, you need to play Galactus with other cards to win the match but simply destroying the other two locations is a really strong more and there are several strong cards that make powerful synergies with Galactus. With the recent balance changes, however, you’re also required to have a lead in the location you play Galactus in if you want to trigger him so he is often a very sitautional card even in a Galactus deck..

Galactus in the current meta: Galactus has his own deck archetype where you aim for snapping and dropping him as this normally wins the match and makes the opponent withdrawl without showdown at the end – and you have to be able to retreat if you see you’re not able to find your win condition..

Good Synergies with Galactus

Psylocke make a good Turn 4 play so you can play Galactus on Turn 5 with the extra energy. Read more about playing Psylocke here.
Electro is the most important enabler card for Galactus so you can play him on Turn 5 with the extra energy you have and then win the match with a strong Turn 6 card. Read more about playing Electro here.
Wave is another great enabler card for Galactus and played on Turn 4 she lets you play Galactus on Turn 5. I wouldn’t use her on Turn 3 to make Galactus available as this will give your opponent more time to react on Turn 5 and Turn 6 or retreat to get out of the situation cheaply. Read more about playing Wave here.
Daredevil is a really important card to use along Galactus as it helps playing Galactus on Turn 5 in a location that you actually have the lead in to trigger his ability. Read more about playing Daredevil here.
Doctor Octopus is with Electro or Wave a great Turn 4 play to pull more than half of the opponents hand to a location and mess up his cards badly. With Galactus on Turn 5 you then destroy that location and he needs a ton of luck to have a good card left for a Turn 6 play comeback. Read more about playing Doctor Octopus here.
Hobgoblin is great if you want to snipe with Galactus on Turn 6, so pick a location where your opponent has several cheap cards and lower power, place Hobgoblin on Turn 5 there to keep your location clean and stuff up his location and then drop Galactus on Turn 6. With the changes that require you to have the lead in the location you play Galactus in, this card becomes a very strong synergy to run. Read more about playing Hobgoblin here.
Death is an incredible pair with Galactus as she will become a 0-cost card for the last turn if you manage to play Galactus before Turn 6 as all cards in the other locations are destroyed by Galactus and reduce her costs – and normally on Turn 5, where you see Galactus is played most of the time, there’s 8 cards on the board to destroy. Read more about playing Death here.
Knull works in the same way as Death but instead of reducing cost, he will gain all the combined power of all cards that Galactus destroyed so he can be easily 30-40 power on Turn 6. Read more about playing Knull here.

The Best Galactus 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 destroyer iconGalactus 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
  • galactus death iconGalactus Death
    This deck is really frustrating to deal with for your opponent as you will try to use your Elektro or Wave to draw into your Galactur before Turn 5 and then ruin basically the whole locations except one that will show down on the last turn. Nothing your opponent built up until that will count and you can catch him pretty off guard with it. If you play Doctor Octopus before Galactus and basically empty your opponents hand or Leech to block all enemy cards' abilities. Very strong and easy to play.Future Prediction: Is galactus coming back to the meta? Well, we'll see but there's definitely a incline recently that Galactus makes at least some appearences.How to play this deckMore Destroy Decks
  • negative galactus iconNegative Galactus
    Through Mister Negative you can cheaply unlock the strong combo lines in this deck, but be prepared to retreat if lines don't fall into your favor. Can work great but also fail miserably making it a exciting, effective but also rng deck.Future Prediction: We'll see how reliable this deck sustains with the way Galactus is predictable but right now you can win well if you see your retreat/snap spots well.How to play this deck
  • iron galactus iconIron Galactus
    Using Howard to get more insights on what Iron Lad will be doing and how your potential Galactus play will turn out, this Galactus deck gains more stability in draw linesFuture Prediction: As all Galactus decks it requires you to snap and retreat at the right time to make overall cube gains.How to play this deck
  • galactus kang iconGalactus Kang
    A great deck that uses Kang to place your Galactus perfectly fine at the end and take over the gameFuture Prediction: We'll see where this will go but Kang makes Galactus perform a lot more reliable so I assume we will see him more in the next weeksHow to play this deck
  • negasonic galactus iconNegasonic Galactus
    Use the calssic Galactus lines along Negasonic Teenage Warhead to defend your lead in the location you played Glactus inMeta Dependency: Like any Galactus deck this depends a lot how well Galactus performs and how much you enjoy playing GalactusHow to play this deck
  • nimrod destroy iconNimrod Destroy
    Revolve around using your negative Goblin cards to clogg up one location of your opponent to play Galactus in on Turn 6. Then play Nimrod in another location, ideally scaling him up through Shuri and use Wolverine as well on the right location or the lcoation left of Galactus to make sure he will jump into it.Meta Dependency: Can be quite predictable with the Goblins, Wolverine, Nimrod down, but with ARnim Zola, you still have a backdoor to play on Turn 6 if Galactus doesn't seem to do the trick.How to play this deck
