For players who are looking to build the strongest deck right out of the gate, here are the best Pool 1 cards to utilize in Marvel Snap.

Here are some of the best cards in Marvel Snap Pool 1, including cards you’ll want to unlock as soon as possible.

Blue Marvel

An incredibly powerful card that is a staple of most Ongoing decks, Blue Marvel adds one power to all other cards you have in play.

Pair Blue Marvel with cards that can fill up all three locations so that you can get the maximum benefit from Blue Marvel.


One of the cornerstones of destroy decks, Carnage will chew up every card at the location where he’s played.

Marvel Snap Carnage

Carnage gains +2 power for each card that it destroys. The best strategy, then, is to play 3 cards at one location that you want to see destroyed (like Nova or Bucky Barnes) and then play Carnage to get the max 8 power.

Iron Man

The genius playboy billionaire philanthropist is a stellar card in Marvel Snap, one that can shift the tide of any match on turn five.

Iron Man doubles your Power at the location he’s played at, creating scenarios that absolutely skyrocket a certain location’s power. The only bad thing about Iron Man’s card is his voice line when played, letting out a puny robotic “I Am Iron Man” that sounds like a broken microwave from the 90s.

Devil Dinosaur

The dino is one of the high-cost cards that you build your decks around because of its power, making it an incredibly valuable card.

Look to drop Jessica onto a location you’re not planning on loading up on for turn five so that she gets the full benefit of her On Reveal ability.


Ka-Zar is fantastic for a Kazoo deck that looks to spill out tons of 1-Cost cards onto the board.

Ka-Zar gives a +1 Power boost to all 1-cost cards in your locations. Although he’s severely countered by Kilmonger, he’s still a fantastic card from the Pool 1 cards.
