The Bifrost Hot Location Guide: Strategy, Best Cards and Decks

This week's Marvel Snap Featured Location is The Bifrost: After turn 4, move all cards one location to the right. Here are our proposed strategies with the best cards and decks that you can try (including for Pool 1 and Pool 2 players) for the next 24 hours for the new meta!

This week’s Marvel Snap Hot Location is The Bifrost: After turn 4, move all cards one location to the right. This is a Hot Location for Marvel Snap’s April 2023 season, Animals Assemble. For the next 24 hours, it will now have a 50% chance of showing up in games. Let’s find out what the best strategies, cards, and decks for the new meta!

Strategy and General Tips

This effect always activates after you finish Turn 4. Cards which gain an advantage from moving can profit from this location. Stocks on Move decks will go up for the next 24 hours, so we need to look at how we build decks towards the location and also how to counter. Having a free potential move effect can activate the potential of the Move cards in the game in a big way allowing for multiple retriggers on effects such as Vulture, Kraven, and Human Torch.

We have a lot of effects that can take advantage of the location and it’s relatively simple to build several different movement decks which will be much stronger. Also with such a variety of cards to play into this location you should consider how your planning to deal with this location when it shows up. However due to this strong synergy which exists if we play to counter the location we can ruin our opponents day and have high potential to win high cube games.

Storm, Scarlet Witch, Debrii are all cards which can severely limit move strategies. Additionally cards like Killmonger can destroy key cards on your opponent’s side. Moving up the curve, cards like Professor X hitting middle locations can limit the way the move decks try to play their final turns. In short there are many ways to counter the Movement decks which are likely to show up more during the location whilst playing strong decks.

So instead of going all in look at movement cards in strong decks or look at shutting down opposing strategies to maximise your returns during The Bifrost Hot Location.

This move deck runs Beast in order too pick back up the cheaper cards which can be countered, reducing the cost for big Turn 5 or 6 plays retriggering multiple move effects. Beast’s main reason for inclusion is picking up the cards which can be countered like Human Torch and Iron Fist making them cost 0 for later in the game.

We then have Heimdall for a final activation if required. Storm helps us to try to lock out some lanes earlier if needed and add power again later with the Move cards.

Many Move cards cost 3 energy, synergizing perfectly with Silver Surfer. This creates the opportunity to play Silver Surfer too buff these cards whilst taking advantage of the location. The added benefit of this direction is how much disruption the package contains itself whilst having less potential counters than the more traditional move lists.

The cards in the list don’t get hit as easily by Killmonger and Shang-Chi for example and the deck can interact better with opposing gameplans. Additionally, we can swap in and out the 3 cost cards with other good 3 cost cards too react to what we see on the ladder.

The other way is too Junk the lanes up. Here we use cards like Debrii, Viper and Green Goblin order to lock out lanes early. The Bifrost will move these cards down into other lanes also which can entirely lock out specific lanes on 4.

Additionally, Spider-Man on Turn 4 means your opponent cannot play the lane on 5, leading to strong Professor X targets. Professor X severely limits big Turn 5 and 6 plays for move decks.

Scarlet Witch and Storm can also be considerations to fill slots in this deck in order to turn off The Bifrost before your opponent gets the benefit at all if needed.

As we move into Pool 2 we get the real Move pay off card and the king of The BifrostKraven. Kraven will gain power after Turn 4 for each of yours and your opponent’s cards which move to the same lane. We also get Vulture and Cloak. Vulture is simple, it will gain +5 each time it moves, this includes The Bifrost. Cloak is more complex and very flexible card. Recommend trying to play it on Turn 4 to allow you to move cards back into a lane after The Bifrost move.

As we know we are getting a Move guaranteed (60% of the time) on Turn 4 we can also try to fit Nova and Carnage in to clean up space and add power. Therefore dropping America Chavez seems like the play as we have so much other synergies in the deck for Series 2.

Another consideration, although it may seem counterintuitive, is Killmonger. Although it will destroy your Iron Fist and Nightcrawler, this might be a good thing as it will clear space for future plays.

Often we have to ask, how does Thanos work with this location, but as it is a Series 5 card I like to avoid making it the main recommendation. Thanos is strong into this location as you can afford to play plenty of good cards for the location, take advantage of the effect and counter the opponent all in one deck.
