The BEST Sunspot Decks in MARVEL SNAP

marvel snap best sunspot decks

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list and gets updated each time I update my meta decks (at last once or twice per week), so you will never find any outdated decks here that are not flagged as old and outdated.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

Sunspot is a 1-cost card that gains power each time you have unspent energy at any turn, basically turning your leftover energy into a push and although that might not sound much, it can snowball heavily and combined with the right cards make a strong 10+ power out of this card..

Sunspot in the current meta: Sunspot performs really well right now due to the fact that he automatically gathers power and can occupy a single location on his own. Protected by Armor there’s nothing the opponent can do, combined with Infinaut you can feed 5 energy into Sunspot on Turn 5 and play 20-power Infinaut on Turn 6. Also She-Hulk is a great combination as she will get cheaper for each energy unspent..

Good Synergies with Sunspot

Armor is an incredible synergy card with Sunspot as he will protect Sunspot from Killmonger or Shang-Chi and you can bot down for a total of 3 energy and have one location you’re absolutely competing for. Read more about playing Armor here.
She-Hulk will get cheaper with each energy unspent so you will make your Sunspot better while reducing She-Hulk’s cost. This doubles the effect of skipping a turn or leaving some energy unplayed. Read more about playing She-Hulk here.
Professor X is also a great card to combine with Sunspot as you can scale Sunspot up, if needed, to find your win condition at this location while your opponent can’t increase power there. Read more about playing Professor X here.
The Infinaut is another great synergy card with Sunspot as you can skip Turn 5 and load up Sunspot with 5 more power and then drop your Infinaut on Turn 6 for that massive power. Read more about playing The Infinaut here.

The Best Sunspot 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!


  • Lockjaw ThanosS+
    This deck develops the points slower towards the end and is harder to predict as you play all the cheap reveal effects of the Infinity Stones into Lockjaw to trade for high-power cards. With Leech, Aero and Magneto you have also a ton to shift around on the last turn of you need to and there's always some lines you can play into to find your win condition.Future Prediction: This deck saw a steep rise and is relatively new and has been dominating the meta right now like crazy and there doesn't seem to be a deck that's stopping it in the current meta. This deck dominates so heavily that almost 70% of victories in the highest ranks are using this deck due to the heavy energy manipulators that Magneto and Quinjet are and before there will be a patch, there won't be any change to this.How to play this deckMore Thanos DecksMore Lockjaw Decks
  • Shuri ZeroS
    This deck snowballs heavily as pretty much all cards carry high power that you multiplay through Shuri and then pass to Taskmaster. With Zero you can also start comfortably play your Typhoid Mary or Red Skull without fearing the ability that buffs your opponent. Taskmaster and Arnim Zola are great high-power plays in the end and you will have a lot of high-power cards active here towards the end.Future Prediction: Still the strongest deck behind Thanos Lockjaw and can compete with it when things work well - but overall in usage and win rate clearly number two behind Thanos Lockjaw.How to play this deckMore Shuri DecksMore Zero Decks
  • DoomWaveA+
    This deck combines a lot of cheaper cards with great value and then builds a bridge through Wave to play high-costs cards that are really effective. There's no specific synergies here you're after, you basically play the cards you have and try to make the most out of it, which works quite well as you don#t have to rely on specific lines to draw into.Future Prediction: Combining good cards together, this is probably by far the best chance to run a competitive deck in the current meta without having Series 4 and Series 5 cards. It will struggle against the ThanosLockjaw and Shuri deck so retreat if you see what's coming there but overall a deck to push right now.
  • Lockjaw ThorB+
    Starting with your cheap cards you can either start populating the locations and gain some advatage to built up and Thor helps a lot by generating his Hammer that you can then draw through Jane Foster, feed into Lockjaw to scale up Thor and then Lockjaw rotates into something more powerful. THis deck is really powerful once you can get your combo lined up but also be ready to retreat if things aren't going your way as don't have the craziest backdoor. Still, sometimes you can still win a match even without that Thror, Jane Foster, Mjolnir, Lockjaw into Infinaut rotation.Future Prediction: This deck is, unfortunately, falling behind more and more. On one side you have the LockjawThanos and the Shuri decks that overcome it with high power and then the decks on the other side with many control cards (especially Cosmo) that make the Thor synergy hard to work.How to play this deckMore Lockjaw DecksMore Thor Decks
  • Electro Sandman RampB+
    I love this deck a lot as you can play it two ways, either by using Psylocke to reduce your cards cost and then use Wave as well to get a grat final push where you can drop two 6-cost cards or you use Electro to be able to play 5-cost and 6-cost cards on earlier. You can use Leech on Turn 4 to already block your opponents abilities and with your 6-cost cards you always be able to find a win condition on the last turn.Future Prediction: A very control-heavy deck that now uses Nimrod through Arnim Zola as well to gain a lot of potential reach and flexibility towards the end + the fact that you don't need many Series 4 and Series 5 cards makes it a solid pick for F2P and new players. How to play this deck
  • 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
  • Shuri Nimrod RampB
    This Shuri deck version incorporates Nimrod to scale up as well and givey ou more flexible lines to play towards the end.Future Prediction: Shuri is pretty strong and with Nimrod you gain a ton of flexibility here. Not on top of the meta but if you like Shuri and want to play Nimrod you can make this deck work.
  • 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
  • Magik Disrupt
    With Viper, Green Goblin and Titania you'll try to flip over Titania as long as you can fill your opponents side to make the swing in the last turn to get that location (see below in the Titania section how to do it) and with Sunspot, She-Hulk and Infinaut you try to build high power on another location to win. This deck is pretty straightforward to play with good capabilities to counter and annoy your opponent into retreating.Future Prediction: A strong disrupt deck that seems to be able to deal with the high-power decks we see right now as well as Thones decks in all variations.How to play this deck
  • Zerocula
    This deck has two sides that you normally don't see together, the Zoo aspect with many cards that get buffed up but also the high-power push cards towards the end, giving your opponent a hard time to deal with in Marvel Snap. With Zero you can also play your Red Skull without buffing up your enemy or your Infinaut despite played a card on Turn 5. Dracula can become a little bit of a gamble but if you see you have your high-power cards in your hand at Turn 4 it's worth gicing it a shot.Future Prediction: Seems to be more viable again recently with the high-power cards that have abilities.How to play this deck
  • Leech Leader
    This deck follows less of a synergy in total but it uses cards that are significantly stronger than normal and providing great value on their own. This means they either disrupt enemy synergies well early (Scorpion, Armor, Cosmo) or have great return value for the energy spend (Sunspot, Lizard, Maximus). With White Queen you can draw your opponents win condition Shang Chi destroys any high-power cards, Leech disrupts their last turn, Aero and Magneto move cards around to keep your tiles clean and Leader basically copy your opponents move if you have the lead in 2 locations by the beginning of Turn 6.Future Prediction: Yes, Leader got changed but is still a viable card and you have the other strong cards to find your win condition with this deck.How to play this deck
  • Reach N Reveal
    This is a new an exciting deck with many win conditions, great meta countering and loads of options to play and it dominates very well recently. You have Sunspot and Storm to lock down one location while being able to get more power into it later and then strong end-game moves to win a second location.Future Prediction: It's a very basic deck and most played by newer players that don't have the advanced cards. Works fine but not top-of-meta deck in Marvel SnapHow to play this deck
  • 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
  • ZabuCula
    With Zabu pushing so many 4-cost cards, you can bring a lot action by Turn 5 here and then still push further with high-power cards.Future Prediction: Same as all Zabu decks in the meta right now, as long as Zabu won't get nerfed, they will remain really strong.How to play this deckMore Zabu Decks
  • She-Hulk Combo
    A great combo deck that uses the synergy between She-Hulk, Sunspot and The Infinaut along fitting cards for a great deck that appears weak up until the big power drops on the last turn.Future Prediction: Solid performance and similar as it was last seasnon, She-Hulk is just a good card for combo so I think it's save to predict her to stick around in the meta for quite some time.How to play this deck
  • Galactus 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
  • Quake Control
    Quite an off-meta deck that uses locations hifting to steal cubes when opponents snap. Snapping back and gain big but retreat if things are not going your way.Future Prediction: People have reached Infinity with this deck without being in the meta, simply as shifting locations is something players aren#t that aware of but it's not meta-depending.How to play this deck
  • Zabu Dinosaur
    Combining good cards that work really well on their own in a handsize deck with Devil Dinosaur works surprisingly well and is a viable and affordable deck right nowFuture Prediction: We always have a deck of 'good cards' each season that make a great deck, this is this season's one.How to play this deck
  • Valkyrie Control
    Play all the Infinity Stones, ideally for free through Quinjet or Beast and scale them up through Ka-Zar and Blue Marvel. The beauty here is that you can use Professor X to lock down one location you have the lead in and Valkyrie to scale down high-power cards your opponent hasFuture Prediction: With many cards that ramp up a lot of power, this deck comes into meta more and more ans you interrupt combos and scale down the high-power cards accross the boards quite well.How to play this deck
