The BEST Mystique Decks in MARVEL SNAP

marvel snap best mystique decks

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list and gets updated each time I update my meta decks (at last once or twice per week), so you will never find any outdated decks here that are not flagged as old and outdated.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

Mystique only costs 3 energy, so you can play her quite versatile but she can duplicate ongoing effects and that’s her big benefit. So you can not only double the effect itself, you can also duplicate the effect into another location so make sure to check out my recommended synergies below, not just the decks..

Mystique in the current meta: Mystique is pretty strong right now and you can find her in several meta decks as she can simply double some cards plus the fact that she costs only 3 energy makes her a possible play on Turn 6 with another card..

Good Synergies with Mystique

Cerebro buffs heavily accross the board but normally you have to scale it more to win a match – and Mystique is a great way to effectively not just double the power Cerebro adds, Mystique can also move it to another location to protect it even more from any Rogue or Echantress counters. Read more about playing Cerebro here.
Zoo Cards that will buff up many cards through their ongoing effect are obviously a great fit for mystique, especially as she will gain their full effect but only cost 3 energy you’ll get a nice trade from getting her on the board after you played Blue Marve, Kazar or Patriot. Read more about playing Zoo Cards here.
Devil Dinosaur uses an ongoing ability to gain his power and with Mystique you can basically get a second Devil Dino on the board for the cheap cost of 3 energy when you drop her on Turn 6. Read more about playing Devil Dinosaur here.
Iron Man is not that much around anymore recently but with Mystique you can either get his effect to another location (and we all know how much that can be) or maybe even make it 4x the power in one location. No matter what, it’s a nice last Turn play and with the 3 energy for Mystique absolutely worth doing. Read more about playing Iron Man here.
Wong with Mystique you can double Wong’s effect of twice reveal effects to another location and make it harder for the opponent to defend it (or go super loco and get 4x reveal effects in one location, play Odin on top and well, yeah, the option with the other location is most of the time more reasonable unless things are falling together pretty well). Read more about playing Wong here.
Sera will make Mystique a 2-cost card along with other reductions so you can drop her along with, let’s say a Blue Marvel, on Turn 6 and double the effect. Read more about playing Sera here.

The Best Mystique 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!


  • Zabu DevilHawkA
    Th evolution of the initial Darkhawk deck that created a ton of buzz in January and post-Zabu nerf this is the deck still on the very top with cards that increase your handsize to scale Devil Dinosaur and shuffle rocks inot your opponents deck to scale up your Darkhawk.Future Prediction: Darkhawk and Devil Dinosaur are kind-of tied together and scale through hand/decksize and still do a wonderful job together and I think we see synergies like that running the meta for quite some time. Thanos Lockjaw dominates too much right now but I think overall this deck has also a lot more future potential.How to play this deckMore Control Dekcs
  • Discard DraculaB
    Discard like crazy is the mantra of this deck in hope to grow as many 0-cost Swarm copies as possible, grow up Morbius and increase Apocalpye's power at the end for a big push through Dracula.Future Prediction: If everything works well with this deck, you can devop a crazy power and unstoppable win condition through Dracaula but drawing into the lines can be squishy at times and you need to be prepared to retreat a lot to keep your cubes together with this deck.+How to play this deck
  • Patriot ValkyrieB
    Only low-power cards that you can use alaong aptriot and with valkyrie you can then scale down any location where you opponent played only one or two high-power cards and take over with a flooded board easily.Future Prediction: Along Valkyrie you can deal with the many high-power decks with Shuri to give you next to Shang-Chi another way to scale down enemy powerplants.
  • Classic PatriotB
    This is the first real Patriot deck post-Zabu/Silver Surfer era and it still works like a charm. Patriot scales all cards without abilities so strong and as there's no way to remove a no-ability from a card and good ways to safeguard Patriot, this deck is still high on the tier list of decks.Future Prediction: Still working and now with Invisible Woman you have a great way to cloak up and protect your Patriot from getting coutnered through Enchantress.How to play this deckMore Ongoing Decks
  • Negative Zabu
    Turn all those 0-power cards with strong abilities with Mister Negative into free cards to play and scale it up through Wong , leaving you a ton ofpossibilities for your last turnFuture Prediction: Not on top of the meta but a deck that has seen some action recently and can still do wellHow to play this deck
  • Patriot Surfer
    An absolute Zoo Deck resolving around cards without abilities (which also counts for many cards locations drop and Rocks/Adamantium). Towards later you will buff them up through Patriot, Blue Marvel and Silver Surfer. A very modern version of a Zoo deck in the classical approachFuture Prediction: Even Silver Surfer got nerfed, Patriot seem to catch that nerf pretty well and keeps this deck in the meta quite cards: How to play this deckMore Silver Surfer Decks
  • Shanna 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
    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
  • Negative Surfer
    This deck works with many cards that have great effects but lower power themselves, so using cards like Bast and Mister Negative) to turn that around. Also has a ton of 3-cost cards that you can buff up with Silver Surfer in the end and if you can get Mister Negative on Iron Man you have a crazy push for one location that almost always wins it for you.Future Prediction: Still looking good with some minor changes each season but Mister Negative turns low-power cards with strong abilities into cheap cards and this makes this deck really viable and strong.How to play this deck
  • Cerebro 2
    As you can see all your cards have 2 power and the reason is that you will play Cerebro to give them all +2 power which is a lot at the end of the game. With Mystique you can even double that and Storm will make it eaier for you to find your win condition. A classical Zoo deck that is quite versatile to play without many lines to draw into.Future Prediction: Adapted with some other cards, primarily the disruptive Hazmat combined with Luke Cage, make this deck viable for the new season.How to play this deckMore Ongoing Decks
  • Cerebro 5
    Use all 5-power cards to buff them up with Cerebro and mystique to become 9-power cards. With Wave you can play Nimrod earlier or use Magik to buy you an additional turn. Then drop Cerebro and Mystique at the end together for a +4 power to each card.Meta Dependency: A new deck to work with Nimrod for the start of the new season, we'll have to see how well it performs against the other meta decks.How to play this deck
