Annihilus is a 5-cost, 7-power card with a powerful new On-Reveal ability: “Your cards with 0 or less Power switch sides. Destroy those that can’t.

Annihilus is sure to be a standout feature in many “junk” type archetype decks in which you’ll ideally be able to flood your opponent’s board with low-cost cards.

The synergy of Annihilus with cards like The Hood, Ninja, and The Void is going to be crucial, giving players yet another way not just to remove these negative power cards from their own side but send them across to the other side of the location. However, the strategy needs careful planning, particularly as it reaches Turn 5, when Annihilus will most often become available for play.

However, Annihilus’ power is not without its challenges. The card’s effectiveness is heavily reliant on having the right low-power cards in play, and its impact can be mitigated by savvy opponents using counters like Professor X or Cosmo. Despite these hurdles, Annihilus offers a unique and thrilling playstyle, turning the tide of games with a well-timed reveal.

Annihilus can be played in a variety of ways, including the disruptive junk strategy or pairing with Thanos.

  • Jeff
  • Viper
  • Debrii
  • Green Goblin
  • Sentry
  • Man-Thing
  • Annihilus
  • Hobgoblin
  • Alioth

This deck is built around the idea of the “junk” archetype in which we look to flood the opponent’s board with low-cost and near-useless cards that not only take up their valuable spaces but give them a disadvantage at the same time.

Cards like Hood and Sentry are negative cost cards that with Annihilus, we can now send across to the other side. Green Goblin and Hobgoblin instantly head over to the opponent’s board with their On-Reveal effects.

It’s going to be one incredibly disruptive deck and one that’s sure to frustrate the majority of Marvel Snap players.

  • Cosmo
  • Debrii

  • Annihilus
  • Thanos
  • Destroyer
  • Death

Annihilus also seems to fit in nicely with Thanos decks considering that most of the top Thanos options right now are focused on destroying or removing the Infinity Stones.

With Annihilus’ fantastic synergy with Destroy-type cards such as Carnage, Destroyer, and more, the card seems to provide yet another win condition for Thanos players.

The objective here is that Hazmat can, ideally, reduce the power of all cards on the board, including all of the Infinity Stones. Rather than relying on destroying the stones to free up space, players can now opt to simply reduce the power and then send them across with Annihilus’ ability.
