  • Odin is one of the most powerful and essential cards in this deck and really makes the deck unstoppable.
  • Daredevil is also important in the Deck and sets up your turn 5 play with Gamora.

  • Why I Chose This: With the proper setup, you can take advantage of the enemy, especially with Mantis’ card and the ability the card offers. 

Now that you have your Guardians, it’s very important to understand the role each character plays in the team. Without knowing what they do and how to play them, it’s going to be very hard to use the full potential of the Guardians. 

The pros and cons for the Guardians of the Galaxy deck are listed as follows in my opinion: 

  • Nebula’s on-reveal ability is broken. 
  • Mantis’ card can put the enemy at a disadvantage.
  • Star-Lord has a broken card. 
  • Difficult to get Drax’s card. 

Nebula

Thanos’s daughter has a powerful ability that might be one of the most unique in the game. Her on-reveal ability allows you to double her power and puts her back in your hand if the opponent played here. She is great to have if you stack up and eventually have an eight or even 16-power card that only costs one energy. 

Mantis

Another member of the Guardians who has a pretty interesting ability is Mantis. She is a low-cost card and can be very useful and can give you an advantage or put the enemy at a disadvantage. Her ability allows you to draw a card from the opponent’s deck. Now, this can gain you a very good card, or it can steal a card the opponent needs for a combo that work best with cards

Rocket

One of the second most loved characters in the Guardians has an ability that makes you quite the powerhouse. If you guess correctly, you can turn Rocket into a 1-cost and 4-power card. That ability makes him one of the highest power 1-cost cards in marvel Snaps. 

Star-Lord

The leader of the Guardians has a similar ability to most of the gang, but he is a little stronger than Rocket. Being a 2-cost and 2-power card might seem weak, but his ability make him a 5-power card. The more accurately you play these cards, the stronger you become.

Groot

Groot

The most loved character in the guardians is also quite powerful, having a similar ability to his peers. Your Groot also gains a power boost if the enemy plays a card at this location and becomes a great card. He makes a significant addition to the team and is quite a valuable asset. 

Drax

One card which is going to be hard to get in the Guardians Deck is Drax. He is the second strongest guardian in the deck and can increase your power by a lot. He Has the same ability as the rest of the squad, but he is a bit stronger.

Gamora

Last but not least is Gamora, and she is going to be the strongest card in the deck. Although she isn’t hard to unlock so you can easily gain her and start using her while you unlock the other members. She gets her power increased by 5 and yes, her ability works the same way. 

Daredevil

A great support card in Marvel Snap to have is going to be Daredevil. Firstly, his unique ability makes him one essential part of the plan, and pairing him up with Gamora is going to set up the Victory. Secondly, he is a 2-cost card and goes well in the deck, and he is available in the Season Pass.

Storm

Now, most of the other cards in the deck are supporting cards for the Guardians to activate their abilities. Storm is one such card that aids you by limiting the locations the enemy can play at. Her ability allows her to block a location after the next turn completely. 

Juggernaut

Having Juggernaut in the team is an ace in your back pocket and the enemies can never really be sure what will happen. Using Juggernaut’s ability to displace enemy cards comes in quite handy to spoil their plans. You can unlock Juggernaut in pool 1 so he will be easy to obtain.

Spider-man

Another nod to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the synergy between Spider-man and the Guardians in Marvel Snap. Spider-man’s ability blocks a location for a turn giving you at least a fifty percent chance to predict where the enemy will go next. With Spider-man you make the Guardians Stronger and win more games. 

America Chavez

The only 6-cost card in the Guardians deck is America Shavez, and she can help out the team with your ability. America Chavez has a very weird ability and is quite overlooked, but in the Guardians deck, she is a valuable Asset. Her ability forces the game to draw other cards, giving you a higher chance to draw and play Gamora on your fifth turn. 

My Take On The Guardians Of The Galaxy Decks

While I personally think these GOTG decks will help you throughout most of your Marvel Snap journey, I wouldn’t recommend using them for competitive play. That is because the Guardians of the Galaxy cards themselves aren’t really that great; they have little dynamic and versatility, and none of them are game-changers.

My in-game hours on Marvel Snap (Steam ID: WaterJuice)

I stuck with these cards for most of my early-game phase, using Rocket, Star-Lord, and Gamora. However, I quickly realized that these were one-trick ponies, and opponents could easily exploit them. When you reach high ranks, I use the cards when can reach extremely high levels of Power, and unfortunately, none of the members in the Guardians of the Galaxy meet this criteria.

The Asgardians of the Galaxy deck is one of the best on-reveal Decks in Marvel Snap. Being a thematic, it’s one of the strongest and better than a lot of on-reveal decks.
