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


Angela is easily one of the best cards in the game, and easily the strongest 2-drop right now.

She gains +2 Power for each card played at her location. Look to pair her with cards that can shift their location, like Nightcrawler, to make more space at the location to play as many cards as possible there.

Bishop is strong for reasons similar to Angela, although his Power is increased +1 every time you play a card no matter the location.

This means that Bishop’s potential maximum Power is much higher than Angela’s. Look to play a Kazoo deck with him utilized for maximum 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.

Jessica Jones

Jones is a very powerful 4-drop that gets +4 Power if no card is played at her location the following turn.

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.
