Have you downloaded the new Marvel Snap card game yet? If you did, then chances are that you’re wondering which are the best Marvel Snap cards in the game and what are some good decks to use. On this page, you’ll find our brand new Marvel Snap tier list for cards to use in this meta.
Who doesn’t love Marvel? Especially their awesome games such as Marvel Contest of Champions we have also created a tier list for Best MCoC Champions. But they have recently released their collectible card game (CCG) called Marvel Snap. In it, you’ll find as expected characters from the whole Marvel Universe that you can use to create a deck and battle other players.
But choosing the best Marvel Snap cards for your deck isn’t always that easy, especially since the game is new, and there are so many variables and factors involved oh, and over 150 cards from three different pools. So we thought we’d do some research and find out which are the best decks in Marvel Snap that other players are using to dominate, and what cards they are using and create a Marvel Snap tier list accordingly.
On this page you’ll find exactly that, all Marvel Snap cards ranked from best (S tier) to worst (D tier). So let’s get started.
Marvel Snap Tier Rankings Explained
- S Tier – These are the most powerful cards in Marvel Snap, any player that wants to dominate and create a strong deck should use at least one of these.
- A Tier – If you couldn’t get your hands on the S tier cards, these ones will also do just fine as they are still very good cards that can carry you to victory.
- B Tier – Slightly less effective Marvel Snap cards, these are still good to be used in tournaments and regular matches although they might need additional support from others in order to shine.
- C Tier – Weak cards that shouldn’t really be played by anyone except in some niche situations or if you have a unique Marvel Snap deck archetype strategy in place… or if you have no other choice but to use these.
- D Tier – We don’t recommend you use these cards in this current Marvel Snap meta, as they aren’t really that good compared to the other ones ranked higher.

That’s it for now, we hope that our Marvel Snap tier list for cards was able to give you a little bit of insight into what are the best cards for your Marvel Snap deck in this meta.
At the moment, with the game being so fresh and new, we’re all beginners anyway, so we’re all going through the changes at the same pace and learning new things every day as new cards and content gets released.
The game is still in its infancy and so expect a lot of changes in the following period, from new cards to buffs or nerfs and more content. As Marvel Snap updates hit we will also try and do our best to revisit our Marvel Snap tier list and update it accordingly.
We know that every player has their own thing going on, with their favorite picks and heroes, we also understand that not everyone might have access to some of the best cards in Marvel Snap, and for that reason, we don’t claim that our tier list is 100% accurate, as there are so many variables involved.
We do think however that our Marvel Snap cards tier list is in trend with the current game meta, following what the top decks are and what the top players are using to win their matches with ease.
If we missed something or you have any suggestions or tips, feel free to leave a comment down below. Oh and don’t forget to bookmark this page for ease of access and revisit it whenever the Marvel Snap meta changes.

Marvel Snap – Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve used the same methodology that we use every time we create one of our tier lists for games.
Meaning that we have played the game ourselves to get a feel of how everything works and what cards and decks are popular amongst players right now, but we have also taken feedback and insight from players on the Marvel Snap Discord channel and Reddit community.
We have then taken all of that info and mixed it together into an easy-to-read tier list, where we ranked all Marvel Snap cards from best to worst according to their power and versatility in-game in the current meta.
The game is still new and there are a ton of variables when it comes to figuring out which are the best Marvel Snap cards and decks, however for the current meta we think that the cards that we have ranked in our tier S rank are the best.
A tier list is not needed in order to win Marvel Snap matches, however, knowing which are the best cards in the meta and what decks the pro players are using can give you an advantage over an opponent that plays with more inferior cards or outdated strategy.
For example, if you go with a Marvel Snap discard deck card, you can throw your opponents off guard thinking that you might not know what you’re doing but in reality, they won’t have any clue on how to counter your abilities and cards. So while a tier list for Marvel Snap is not really needed in order to play the game and have some fun, it is helpful if you want to win more games and always be ahead of most players.
But at the end of the day if you’re having fun and winning games with a unique deck with cards that aren’t rated as top tier, then that’s more awesome, we always love unique Marvel Snap strategies that leave your opponents wondering what just happened after getting stomped.
