Nidavellir Hot Location Guide: Strategy, Best Cards and Decks

This week's Marvel Snap Hot Location is Nidavellir: Cards here have +5 Power. This location will show up 60% more frequently in games for the next 24 hours. Here are some decks to get you started for all players!

The Hot Location for the next 24 hours is Nidavellir: Cards here have +5 Power. Hot Locations happen every week, starting Sunday at 3 AM GMT. The chosen location has a 60% increased chance of appearing during games. Players who strategically build around the location or counter the decks that do so can have an advantage over their opponents! So what do you play?

Strategy and General Tips

We have some insight into this location due to it being released during the beta season for Thor: Love and Thunder. Unfortunately, this is one of the locations where it’s better to counter than to play heavily into. 4 cards buffed by +5 can easily be countered with a single Shang-Chi.

Some cards however, can benefit from Nidavellir while maintaining lower power levels. For example, Iron Man becomes 5 power only and doubles the power of your other cards. Pairing this with other cards with low power which can take the +5 power can make for huge numbers without as much risk of easy counter play.

Also if everyone is trying to set up counter plays, the location may be neglected earlier in the game. Enter turn 5 Professor X. Much like Mojoworld, if you’re a card ahead on this location you often win the location. Professor X can do this, locking down the location whilst adding 8 power.

Finally, there is an abusable combo with Venom and Taskmaster. Venom will gain the +5 power of all cards he destroys as well as gaining +5 power more. Taskmaster then copies this new power level to another lane. When it works it is an amazing play, but once again the counter is simple Shang-Chi!

Ongoing decks can use Iron Man effectively and early game in Marvel Snap your location abuse options for this one basically are Iron Man or flood the lane. This can do a little of both while having game into other locations using a consistent ongoing package.

This week featuring a different Series 2 take on the Series 1 list. In Series 2, the best combo for Hot Locations you get access too is Storm and Jessica Jones. Unfortunately building for Series 2 therefore usually includes this. This time featuring a small Flood package – Angela, Nightcrawler and Lizard, for some flexibility into Nidavellir in later turns. Having Killmonger and 1 drops may seem counterintuitive, but if you are coming up against flood Nidavellir strategies, having the option to reverse your opponents work is worth the trade off.

This Mister Negative list looks to lean in on Nidavellir using Iron Man or Mystique to double the power. We lose some of the 3-Cost consistency in favor of two key tech cards for the location, Shang-Chi and Leech. Shang-Chi to stop the power on board, Leech to shut down the opponent shenanigans. Rest of your gameplan remains, playing Bast early and Mister Negative on 4. Try to land Iron Man on Nidavellir and profit.

Bast can be replaced with another 3 drop such as Mister Fantastic or even Psylocke.

This deck aims to lock the locations using Debrii, Green Goblin, Professor X and co. With Nidavellir, if you can play Professor X with a card advantage, you often will win the lane.

The location should allow us to drop Blue Marvel from this deck style, inserting Shang-Chi to swing Nidavellir if possible. If the approach of playing cards which don’t buff to 9 takes off, swapping Shang-Chi for Enchantress might also be ok.

This deck has all the counters and the ability to flood the location somewhat with Forge, Brood and Mister Sinister. This should allow for counters to Ongoing and flood approaches to the location as well as the Shang-Chi. Sera on 5 and your choice of two tech cards such as Enchantress and Killmonger hopefully shutdown Nidavellir and set up wins on other lanes.
