Marvel Snap September 2023 (Loki For All Time) Bundles Guide – Value and Comparison Chart

In this buyer's guide, Kirallas takes a look at the upcoming bundles for the Loki For All Time Season (September 2023), calculates their estimated value, and compares them side by side.

The upcoming Loki For All Time September 2023 Season remains about the same as last month in terms of bundles. However, unlike August’s bundles, we see more non-whale bundles here. So, let’s break down which bundles deserve your attention in the first place. Keep in mind that contents, costs, and dates are yet to be confirmed and are not final until announced or released.

Marvel Snap Loki For All Time Season (September 2023) Bundles Comparison Chart

How the Chart Works

  1. The price in dollars, next to the price in Gold, is calculated based on the conversion of 700 Gold to $10. The main reason for this is that if you take the more expensive and profitable offers to buy Gold, the more expensive bundles for Gold will turn out to be more profitable for those who bought Gold directly. In addition, there are two very popular values in this deal – 700 Gold is the price of a variant in the shop, and $10 is the price of a season pass, which allows for a more universal comparison system.
    This starting point allows us to make the comparison more balanced and even, especially since the exact prices will be difficult to set because of the different currencies and the ability to buy items through the Nuverse Shop at a discount.
  1. The number of Collector’s Tokens per Gold is calculated by dividing the total number of tokens by the bundle price in Gold. The total number of Collector’s Tokens in the bundle is calculated by adding the Collector’s Tokens from the bundle to the tokens you get when you contribute all the Credits to increase the Collection Level and buy Token Tuesday bundles for Gold.
  1. The maximum Tokens per dollar shows the maximum possible number of Tokens you can get if you effectively use the contents of a particular bundle. This assumes that you will convert all Gold from the bundles into Tokens via Token Tuesdays.
  1. Progress value means how many times more profitable it is to get currencies used to increase the Collection Level (Gold and Credits) and get new cards by buying a bundle, than to get the same resources through a standard currency conversion through the shop. Token Tuesday bundles are used to calculate the value of Collector’s Tokens, as they are the only remaining way to buy them directly since getting Collector’s Tokens through the Gold-Credits-CL conversion gives too little Collector’s Tokens to be considered seriously as a way to get them.
  1. Сosmetic value means how many times it is more profitable to buy cosmetics with the bundle (avatar, title, variant) than to buy similar items in the shop. The price for avatars and titles is based on a price of 350 Gold. This is simply half the cost of any basic variant in the shop. Also, Second Dinner setting the value to 8x on the Welcome Bundle makes it clear that avatars are worth exactly 350 Gold. Card backs are also valued at 350 Gold. There is currently no way of objectively estimating how much a card back is worth.
    However, the price of 350 Gold was based on the fact that card backs, avatars, and titles are barely visible during a match and they have no option of further customization like variants do. There was also an opinion poll on my twitter which showed that 61.6% of over 4,500 players think that card backs should be priced at 350 Gold (or lower). Therefore, until there is a way to estimate the value of card backs more accurately, 350 Gold will be taken as the basis.
  1. The row named Series 5 difference means how many cards you get when you buy the bundle compared to spending the same amount of Gold (or $) on Token Tuesdays as the best way to get cards compared to converting Gold into Credits. In other words, this is the number of cards you get when you buy the bundle ON TOP of the number of cards which is considered normal for that amount of currency spent.
    For these calculations Tokens are used to buy Series 5 cards, Gold is used to buy Token Tuesday bundles (it’s much more efficient than converting into Credits for the purpose of obtaining new cards), and Сredits are used to raise the Collection Level to get new cards through Spotlight Caches.
    Since a player with an almost full collection is defined as a condition, an average player will get more cards this way. It is also assumed that such a player will receive a new card every 2.5 Spotlight Caches on average. Also, since a new card can be either a Series 4 card or a Series 5 card, all calculations are based on the fact that a player will receive Series 5 cards as he bought Series 4 cards on Collector’s Tokens obtained naturally, without buying any bundles. And if a player buys a card, it’s always a Series 5 card, as previously stated). You can find more info about these calculations in our ultimate economy guide!
  1. Boosters are not included in the calculations because they have no real value due to how easy it is to get them later in the game.
  2. The chart contain the amount of new Series 5 cards for a player with a nearly completed collection for every $10 or 700 Gold spent. These values will be useful alongside the card difference value versus buying Token Tuesdays (Series 5 card difference value at the bottom of the chart). This way, you will be able to more accurately compare bundles within each bundle group – both for Gold and for dollars.
  1. With the new system, you should first pay attention to the value of the Difference in Series 5 Cards. It’s also worth looking at the Tokens Per Gold/USD if you want to buy specific cards from the shop. Cosmetic Value and Progress Value will also help you understand what a particular bundle is good for.
  • For the “Collector’s Tokens per Gold” row, a value less than or equal to 0.3 is considered bad (red highlight). A value in the range of 0.3 to 0.71 remains white and indicates a good value. In other words, this value is equal to or slightly lower than Token Tuesday bundles. The most profitable bundles are highlighted in green and have a value above 0.71. These are the bundles we advise players to buy if they want to get as many Collector’s Tokens as possible in the long run.
  • In the Cosmetic Value and Progress Value rows, we use red highlighting to display bundles with a value below 1, which means that it is more profitable to get the same resources through standard conversion methods. The base white color is for values between 1 and 2 and indicates the offers are above average. A green highlight is used for values more than 2; these are very good offers in their categories (cosmetics and collection progress) and should be the target for the players who want to get the most out of it.
  • For the Difference in the number of new cards row, a red highlight reflects values less than 0, a green highlight is used for values more than 0.25, and white for values between 0 and 0.25.

Chart Changes For September

We decided to remove two rows from the chart: the total number of Collector’s Tokens in a bundle, and the total number of new cards you could get as a player with a nearly completed collection. This was done because they provided little utility, as expensive bundles will always give more resources than cheap ones. You can still find this data in a separate bundle page; it just won’t be in the comparison chart anymore.

Instead of these two values, we add three new values previously missing from the charts. Now you can find out how many maximum Tokens per dollar a particular bundle offers. This assumes that you will convert all Gold from the bundles into Tokens via Token Tuesdays.

Also, the chart now contains the number of new cards for a player with a nearly completed collection for every $10 or 700 Gold spent. These values will be useful alongside the card difference value versus buying Token Tuesdays (Series 5 card difference value at the bottom of the chart). This way, you will be able to more accurately compare bundles within each bundle group – both for Gold and for dollars.

The card difference value does the same thing as before, but it now shows up at the bottom of the chart with the Series 5 card icon (as well as Cards per $10/700 Gold) because that’s what’s being compared. Also, this value is now next to the Progress Value, so you’ll be more comfortable looking at two of the most important values at once.

You can also find previous seasons’ comparison charts here:

Days of Summer Past


The first named bundle to greet us in September is the Days of Summer Past Bundle. This is a pretty good bundle this month, second only to the expensive Aspect of Heimdall Bundle in terms of card value. And since this value is mostly concentrated in the 3,000 Gold, consider that you can reallocate this Gold to some good bundles or cosmetics, thus making the value larger or smaller.

Also, this bundle has the highest value of maximum Collector’s Tokens per dollar among all September bundles if you spend the Gold received on Token Tuesdays.

Beach Bums


The Beach Bums Bundle costs only 2,800 Gold, but, just like last month, it offers too little value for that cost. If you look at the progress value, it’s barely better than standard in-game shop prices; if you look at the new cards value, this bundle is worse than getting new cards through Token Tuesdays. Plus, these three variants are the only ones that allow you to at least consider making a purchase.

Cannonball Run


The Cannonball Run bundle has been changed and is different from the earlier datamine version. This bundle now contains 4,000 credits instead of 3,600 credits, which is good for it, because now it has more value in the number of Series 5 cards, compared to Token Tuesdays.

Combined with a progress value of 1.2 it’s a pretty good bundle! I could say it’s a slightly better version of Token Tuesday, but involving getting new cards through Spotlight Caches instead of directly buying them for Collector’s Tokens. Also, this bundle has some cosmetics on top as a nice bonus. So it’s a decent bundle for its cost, if you manage the Spotlight Caches you receive correctly.

Aspect of Heimdall


The Aspect of Heimdall Bundle is comparable in price and value to the Death Becomes Her Bundle. However, here we see slightly less value in terms of the number of new cards (0.47 vs. 0.51) and the lack of Gold as a flexible currency. Thus, this bundle is clearly worse than Death Becomes Her, but it’s still pretty good for “Whales” (i.e. for those who are willing to spend a lot of money to get a lot of resources).

Emergency Pirate Outfit


Emergency Pirate Outfit is a decent bundle for its price. Yes, there are no Tokens in it, but the balance of Gold and Credits for $20 gives it a new cards a value of 0.11. Still, it’s hardly worth prioritizing this bundle for purchase unless you don’t have Kitty Pryde.

Avast Ye, Admiral!


Avast Ye, Admiral! is the first bundle in a long time that can be recommended to any player. It costs only 1,600 Gold, gives more progress than than store purchases, and contains a random variant! You can think of it as a Token Tuesday bundle for 1,400 gold, but for the extra 200 Gold you get 600 Credits and a variant. Conclusion: a solid bundle at a reasonable price, and a must buy unless some expensive and great bundle for gold in October becomes known.

Sword & Shield


The tradition of releasing bundles with cosmetics from past seasons will come to an end in October, as these bundles only include content from beta seasons. Nevertheless, the Sword & Shield Bundle will become available for purchase in September with cosmetic content from the September 2022 season.

Keep in mind that this offer is significantly worse than a Season Pass because you don’t get the card, 900 Gold, or mystery variants that were part of the 2022 Season Pass. The Sword & Shield Bundle has a cosmetic value of 4.5, so if you like these particular variants or avatars, it can be a very worthwhile purchase.

Artist Showcase: Kim Jacinto


The Artist Showcase: Kim Jacinto Bundle is once again of rather disappointing value for an Artist Showcase bundle. If you have both Darkhawk and Master Mold, the value of this bundle is terrible; you’ll spend 7,500 Gold and get 0.25 fewer Series 5 cards than if you just buy Token Tuesdays or convert your Gold to Credits.

Considering Master Mold isn’t a very good card and Darkhawk decks are not the strongest in the game anymore, buying this bundle to get those two cards is a pretty questionable decision. If the Artist Showcase: Kim Jacinto Bundle is going to be released like this, it’s better to skip it and spend your Gold on something else.

Festival of Unity


The Festival of Unity Bundle, unlike previous $5 Bundles, doesn’t contain valuable currency like Gold or Collector’s Tokens. Yes, 900 Credits is a decent amount for $5, and the values of this bundle are pretty good. But if you haven’t bought similar cheap bundles to get Gold before, you should probably skip this one.

Token Tuesday Bundles


Token Tuesday Bundles are still a good choice for converting Gold to Cards.

As before, we still recommend you choose other Gold bundles that offer more value in the number of cards they provide. However, considering there will be no insanely good bundles for Gold in September, choosing Token Tuesdays will be a good choice. Alternatively, you should consider saving up your Gold until November if you want to utilize it as efficiently as possible.

Mystery Pack Bundles


The $5 Mystery Packs are pretty disappointing, both when compared to the rest of the Mystery Packs and compared to other bundles for USD (which have significantly decreased in value recently). Six months ago, we could probably recommend some of them for purchase; now, they don’t stand up to any competition when comparing value per dollar.

The $10 Mystery Pack Bundles are much worse than the $20 ones, which is much better due to the included Collector’s Tokens. In terms of value, these bundles are similar to Token Tuesdays if you buy them with dollars. However, as with the $5 and $10 bundles, their value is lower than other bundles for real money. Therefore, don’t consider high-priced Mystery Packs as priority bundles for purchase. They’re only worth looking at if you’re a “Whale” and can afford to buy all the bundles to get the maximum number of cards.

Booster Pack Bundles


Booster Packs, just as before, are too bad to be a 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.


We didn’t get very many good bundles this month. We have one decent bundle in each category – except for the expensive Gold bundles.

The best cheap Gold bundle is the Avast Ye, Admiral! Bundle. A good, cheap bundle for dollars is Festival of Unity. Of the other bundles for dollars, the good ones are Aspect of Heimdall and Days of Summer Past. The other bundles are probably not worth your attention, unless you need a specific card or variant.

Also, when choosing a bundle to buy, it’s worth considering that the those mentioned above have a high chance of being changed before their release. In addition, the prices and value of the October bundles are likely to be known soon, so it may be worth waiting for this information to make the most informed decision possible.
