Hey guys, Tauna here.
We are now reaching half a week into the Marvel Snap Closed Beta, with hundreds of people testing out and climbing up the ladder. As with all card games, a meta has started emerging and we’ve got our first insights into what are currently the best decks.
This was provided by Tian Ding, the principal data scientist and game designer over at Second Dinner! While we’ve covered the various cards in the decks already, now we are going to look at how to play them! These decks are also a direct result of upgrades to the Starter Decks, as player’s collections are limited.
The first deck we will look at is the Midrange Tempo deck. You can find the other two deck guides from the report here:
- Rocket Raccoon
- Mister Fantastic
The Punisher Kazar
- Iron Man
- America Chavez
