The Marvel Snap Higher, Further, Faster November 2023 Season will once again be a good one for buying Bundles at a wide variety of price points. So let’s analyze each of them and consider whether something is worth picking up for you this month!
This guide is for upcoming future content. All details are not final and may change upon release. Check out our datamining article for more information!
How the Chart Works
You can also find previous seasons’ comparison charts here:
Half a World Away
This $10 bundle offers almost as much Gold as buying a season pass – 800 vs 900, as well as a nice amount of Credits and some cosmetics. Gold, being the most versatile currency, looks especially good here and sets the Half a World Away bundle apart from similar $10 counterparts.
The included variant isn’t the best choice a bundle – Black Widow as a Series 3 card is almost nowhere to be found, so it’s unlikely to be useful on its own for those who want get to play her before getting the base card. The same goes for advanced players – it’s hard to find a place for it in competitive decks.
Overall though – this is a decent bundle for a relatively small price that can help you get some gold (and a themed variant) for the Peach Momoko Shop Takeover.
Peach You are So Cool
Despite the significant changes that have happened to the contents of this bandwagon behind the scenes – it’s still very good for its money and allows you to get a huge amount of Collector’s Tokens. For comparison – if you buy Gold in the in-game shop and then convert it to tokens through Token Tuesdays – for $65 you would get about 3450 Collector’s Tokens, which is noticeably less than here.
However, a very important problem is that Peach, You’re So Cool bundle isn’t very attractive in terms of end game progression for Marvel Snap veterans. Those who have collected almost the entire collection and buy season passes don’t need Tokens to maintain the collection. They need Credits to get cards from Spotlight Caches and to make nice splits for their cards while getting cosmetics on the Collection Level track.
This severely limits the target audience for this bundle: variant collectors and relatively new players who are still in the process of completing their collection. And for such new players, this bundle can be seen as a way to get She-Hulk earlier than usual. And that’s a nice option considering her power level.
At the end, the Peach, You’re So Cool bundle is great, but only for those who can spend 6,000 Tokens on cards they want that won’t be in Spotlight Caches in the coming months.
Oops! All Peaches
Here’s another bundle containing a variant of Peach Momoko! At 3,500 Gold, it barely justifies its price. You’ll literally only get a couple percent more value compared to the in-game shop if you buy it – the numbers above speak for themselves.
Therefore, the Oops! All Peaches bundle is not recommended as a way to spend Gold profitably. However, if you like this variant or you are a new player who doesn’t have Deadpool yet, buying the bundle will be worth it. Otherwise, you’d better save your Gold.
Species: Flerken. Threat: Adorable.
This bundle is kind of the opposite of the She-Hulk bundle. It costs almost half as much and offers a lot of Credits instead of Tokens. The values of this bandle are high and it is a great way to convert USD into Credits at a favorable rate, since normally you would only get 3,250 Credits for that amount of money.
As mentioned above – Credits are especially interesting for those who have collected all or almost all cards and want to continue to maintain their collection and get good splits for cards, while getting cosmetics on the Collection Level Track. Thus, the Species: Flerken. Threat: Adorable. bundle is recommended primarily for those who appreciate spotlight variants and want to get a lot of nice splits.
Also note that even though Goose is a Series 3 card, this bundle is definitely not worth it to get a chance to play this niche card early in the game.
Pro Bundle Mk. III
This bundle is part of a series of extremely expensive, but extremely favorable Pro bundles. Unlike the last Pro Bundle Mk. II, Pro Bundle Mk. III has 1,000 more Collector’s Tokens and 2,000 fewer Credits. This is a carefully calibrated change that completely matches our math. You’ll end up with about the same number of new cards as before, but for some players 2,000 credits would be a more desirable resource for getting new card splits.
As in previous times, we rate this bundle extremely high, as whoever buys it will really get a lot more currency than usual. It’s important to realize that such bundles are intended for so-called Whales, i.e. for those who spend a colossal amount of money to get the maximum amount of resources in the game.
For everyone else, there are a huge number of slightly less favorable bundles for a significantly lower price.
The Thanksgiving Dinner bundle is very similar to the recent Magik‘s Birthday Party! bundle, except it contains Collector’s Tokens instead of Credits, two variants for rarely used cards instead of one variant for a strong and popular card, and in addition the Thanksgiving Dinner costs $5 more!
The only thing that saves this bundle from a very bad rating is that in terms of value it’s above average and gives you enough to not regret it. Should I add that a Gambit as Series 3 card is not worth spending $20, albeit with a bonus of Gold on top?
So no, it’s not worth it, you’re probably better off skipping this bundle entirely. The only reason to get it is if you buy Gold from the in-game shop at the regular price anyway. There you’d get 1,450 gold, here you’d get 1,500, which is a little better.
Festival of Lights
At the very last moment the Festival of Lights bundle was changed from its datamined version and now its price is 4 times higher, and the contents have also been proportionally increased. Thanksgiving Dinner and Clever Girl are the closest candidates for comparison from the latest bundles. And both of those bundles are clearly losing to the Festival of Lights bundle in terms of value. If you look at the three most important parameters when comparing bundles: progress value, number of cards per dollar, and difference compared to buying Token Tuesdays, this bundle is better placed against a significantly more expensive bundle from another price range – Species: Flerken. Threat: Adorable.
And even here we see the overhall superiority of the Festival Of Lights bundle on all fronts: 0.19 cards for $10 vs. 0.15, 2.4 progress values vs. 2.0, and only the last value is slightly lower – the difference in cards vs. Token Tuesdays is 0.22 vs. 0.25. So essentially you’re getting as much value percentage-wise as buying a $35 bundle but buying a $20 bundle.S
So the Festival Of Lights bundle is still very good, but unfortunately with the change of its target audience and the prioritization of credits instead of gold it is hard to call it a must buy. But its value is clearly here and the updated bundle gets 4.5 stars.
Second Dinner is a good bundle for gold with a low price and nice content. Essentially you get 500 extra Credits and a variant on top if you buy the bundle instead of using the standard Gold to Credits conversion.
For this price it’s a decent option for players who want to open Spotlight Caches and get more splits for cards, since this amount is enough for a little more than 2 full card splits. The small price makes the Second Dinner bundle more affordable than usual.
So it’s recommended for purchase if you have an extra 2,000 Gold and belong to the category of players listed just above.
Artist Showcase: Kai Lun Qu
Artist Showcase: Kai Lun Qu is a very expensive and very good bundle, but vastly inferior to the Sugar, Spice, and Everything Ice bundle and the Boon of the Savage Lands bundle. However, the Artist Showcase: Kai Lun Qu bundle has an important advantage. It targets players with a nearly complete collection and offers a huge amount of credits at a bargain price. Anyone who doesn’t feel the need for Collector’s Tokens should definitely consider buying this one, especially since there’s a chance that the Sugar, Spice, and Everything Ice bundle will be nerfed before release.
When compared to what you would normally get for 6,500 Gold, it turns out that you could expect to get about 8,125 Credits, which means this bundle offers 875 Credits and 1000 Collector’s Tokens on top, as well as a sizable amount of cosmetics. Also, it might be important for someone to get Human Torch this way instead of getting a base card. Although this scenario is rather unlikely.
Ultimately though this bundle is inferior to a few of its competitors, it’s definitely worth it, especially considering this bundle will be able to give you an average of 97% of a new Series 5 card due to the Spotliht Caches system.
So I recommend to think about your priorities and the amount of available Gold, taking into account that per month you get on average 2,000 gold without buying a season pass and 3,500 gold if you buy it. After all, you’ll probably want to buy the 7,500 Gold Sugar, Spice, and Everything Ice bundle when it releases next month.
Ronan the Kawaii UwU
This bundle, at $15, offers too little. Just compare it to the very recent Magik’s Birthday Party! There you could get 150 more Credits and 500 more Gold, as well as a variant for a strong and playable Magik card. Yes, there is a Infinity Ticket in the Ronan the Kawaii UwU bundle, but its value varies greatly from case to case and most of the time it will bring you very little value at all, especially if you already play Conquest often enough.
Even if we move away from comparing Ronan the Kawaii UwU to other bundles, it turns out that in terms of progression for 15 USD you would get 1,000 gold at the regular in-game shop price. Which means by buying the bundle you would only get 600 credits on top of that. For how much USD bundles give you compared to bundles for gold, this is a very poor value. Your dollars are worth much more than 600 Credits. And while Ronan is a Series 3 card, that doesn’t save his position in the eyes of either novice players or Marvel Snap veterans, as he’s too bad to put in competitive decks.
Token Tuesday Bundles
Token Tuesday Bundles are slowly losing their appeal, although they remain the starting point for evaluating any bundle. They are still good if you need to buy specific cards and don’t want to save up Gold for a long time to buy expensive and more profitable bundles to do so.
I can hardly recommend buying these bundles – at least not this month – but their pure value hasn’t gone anywhere, and they can help in a difficult situation to get the missing Collector’s Tokens to buy a coveted card.
Mystery Pack Bundles
Once again, Second Dinner offers us a variety of very different Mystery Pack Bundles. We would like to pay special attention to Mystery Pack Bundles number 2 and especially number 4.
Conquest Ticket Bundles
For the first time, we see a new category of bundles designed for Conquest players. The distinctive feature of such bundles, which distinguishes them from Mystery Pack Bundles, is the replacement of cosmetics with tickets for the Conquest mode. However, due to the fact that such tickets cost almost nothing, the exchange is not very fair – and bundles are mostly not worth their money.
Why is that? The thing is that low tier tickets (Silver and Gold) are easy to get even for those who don’t play Conquest very well and too often. As for Infinity Tickets, players who actively play Conquest will not get a serious advantage from just one such ticket, and they have enough Medals to afford everything in the Medal Shop. Furthermore, players who devote little time to Conquest are unlikely to be able to use the ticket profitably and get anything but a couple hundred Medals, which when converted give little to nothing.
Booster Pack Bundles
Booster Packs, just as before, are too bad to be a real way to speed up your progress and get more cards. Just don’t buy them – especially with the addition of Conquest mode since you can easily get lots of boosters in the Proving Grounds without risking anything.
The main innovation this month in bundles was the introduction of Ticket bundles, which aren’t the most successful now, but carry the idea of continuing to separate bundles into different categories, for each type of player.
Also the trend of the month was the continued release of good and generally favorable bundles in every price category! It’s a great trend and we’re glad to see it continue. So, for example here are the best of the bundles for different price categories this month:
- Good Cheap Bundles for Gold:
- Good Expensive Bundles for Gold:
- Good Cheap Bundles for USD:
- Good Mid-priced Bundles for USD:
- Good Expensive Bundles for USD:
So in the end, this is a great month for buying bundles, but remember that all prices and content are preliminary and subject to change!
