Best Mutant Decks

Team synergy and individual potency will be the key factors I’ll look at when assembling the deck. Therefore, you can be sure to expect character combinations with strong promises.

Deck 1: Filling Up The Locations

The most versatile Mutant Deck in Marvel Snap.

  • Why I Chose This: Having several winning strategies with 1 deck is key to getting a high Cube Rate, which is why this deck is so good.

This deck focuses on filling up all of your locations. Therefore, I’m going to include characters that benefit from populated locations, such as Mojo and Ant-Man, as well as characters who themselves fill up locations.

  • To start the first round, place Ant-Man on the left for a safe start. If Ant-Man isn’t available, use Squirrel Girl to fill up 1 space at every location.
  • In round 2, you can set Medusa in the center as well to gain that +4 Power.
  • After that, place Psylocke alongside Ant-Man on the left in the third round, which will strengthen your round 4 with more options and character usability due to +1 additional energy.
  • Then in round 4, since you will have 5 energy to spare, you can set Mojo with Ant-Man on the left as well as set Scorpion at any location to cripple the opponent. If Psylocke wasn’t placed in the third round, you could use Shuri instead.
  • Round 5 is where you can use White Tiger at either the middle or right location.
  • And finally, you can place Onslaught alongside the other location-dependent characters at the left in the final round. Odin is a good alternative for round 6 as well, and he can be placed anywhere. 
  • Several winning routes.
  • Versatile with room for customization.
  • High Power across all locations.
  • Easily counterable.

Deck 2: Onslaught’s Slaughter

  • Why I Chose This: A lot of cards in this deck can win a location entirely on their own.

As you’ve probably guessed by the name, this deck focuses on Onslaught’s ability. Therefore, I’ve mainly included characters with ongoing abilities in this deck, thus primarily creating an ongoing deck.

  • To kick things off in the first round, place Ant-Man at the left location; otherwise, you can also use Nova since his high Power creates a good start.
  • Then in round 2, you can place Psylocke or Medusa at the center location to ensure that the opponent doesn’t get a big lead in that area. Bishop is also a good alternative in round 2.
  • Now onto round 3; you can either use Wolfsbane or Captain America alongside Ant-Man.
  • Round 4 is where you can either use Mojo or Devil Dinosaur at any non-empty location.
  • Once you’re at round 5, you can put Iron Man alongside Ant-Man and the others at the left location. However, do not use Iron Man if you already have 3 filled spaces at the left location since you’re saving a spot for Onslaught.
  • And finally, use Onslaught on the left, and you’ll claim yourself an easy victory!
  • One of the strongest Ongoing decks.
  • Extremely challenging to counter.
  • Future-proof.
  • Dependant on Onslaught.
  • Some cards may lack synergy.

Deck 3: Slow and Steady Wins the Race

  • Why I Chose This: This deck, at least from what I have tested, has incredible balancing strats, ensuring that every round gives you decent Power and play overall.

This deck will primarily pivot on a different strategy rather than focusing on each round – placing similar ability characters with each other.

For instance, you’ll put all the characters in the middle whose Power or abilities are enhanced at that location, such as Mr.Fantastic, Crystal, or Medusa. After that, you’ll place the low-cost character-dependent cards such as Ant-Man, Mojo, or Hawkeye on the left. And finally, you can place your high-cost character-dependent cards, such as Onslaught, Wolfsbane, or Bishop on the right.

The main goal here is to steadily increase your Power in each location so that your opponent doesn’t outright dominate a single location. This is another reason why Mutants are so effective, as they can consistently block your opponent from taking over the game.

  • Strong balance.
  • Less likely to waste energy.
  • Equal distribution of Power.
  • Underwhelming.
  • Low win-rate compared to other decks on this list.

My Opinion And Experience Using Mutant Decks

Although I barely use a Mutant-only Deck nowadays, most of my current decks have a bunch of Mutant cards, and all of them are vital to their respective decks. For instance, Onslaught is my most used 6-Cost card in Marvel Snap and Multiple Man is a must-have for any Move Deck. After using the above deck, I do suggest it for competitive play, since you can devise effective strategies if you have the correct hand.

Like the comics, there are a lot of mutants to pick from in Marvel Snap. Similarly, you can create hundreds of Mutant-themed decks in the title, especially with the recent updates that added several more Mutant cards. From my experience, I always include Onslaught, Devil Dinosaur, and Mr. Fantastic in my Ongoing Deck. As such, I’d recommend you try out different Mutant card combos in various decks too.

Summary

That wraps up my top mutant decks for Marvel Snap. As seen, this game has so many possible combinations and game plans that you can create hundreds of playstyles with only a few chosen Mutant characters. With this much variety, it’s best to explore different decks and see which ones suit you the most, and as time goes on, you’ll eventually end up with a team that is perfect for you. In the meantime, you can use my Mutant Decks to dominate opponents and win!
