Marvel Snap, with its wide range of card collections and abilities, offers players a range of deck combinations, including cards like Hela. They hone the Discard ability, which our Marvel Snap Hela Decks guide will cover in great detail! 

What Is Discard Ability? 

One of the first things we will need to discuss will be entailing towards the discard ability itself. In short terms, the discard ability simply removes a random or a centric card from the payer’s deck during the middle of a game. 

There will be general discard cards, which will grant players a bit of power in exchange for their cards, while there will also be cards that will simply take away the cards, but the good thing will be that the player will be informed ahead of time that they will be rid of their card. 

Hela-Invisible Combo Deck

One of the first decks we would like to feature will include Hela, the main star of the show course. The main thing that people will need to know beforehand is that the deck will be pretty difficult to execute. Therefore players will need a proper amount of skill on hand if they want to pull it off properly. The cards with their abilities are listed as follows: 

  • Blade: With Blade’s on-reveal ability, players can expect that once the card has been revealed, one card will be immediately taken out from your deck and will end up getting discarded. 
  • Morbius: When it comes to Morbius, the card ability will be an ongoing ability, and once it has been activated, it will increase the power by 2 each time a card has been discarded from your deck, making it all the more broken. 
  • Invisible Woman: With her ongoing ability, when the card has been placed down in any location, instead of the card being revealed like it usually does, it will not be revealed until the match ends up being finished. 
  • Gambit: The card will have an on-reveal ability, and it will basically end up taking a card out of your deck once again and automatically be discarded. However, the opponent will also have one of their cards destroyed. 
  • Moon Knight: With Moon knight’s card in hand, whenever the on-reveal ability is activated and the card is placed in a location, another card will be automatically discarded from the player’s deck and taken away. 
  • Hellcow: As for Hellcow, the card ability will be an on-reveal one, and once the card is revealed to the opponent, 2 cards from your deck will end up being discarded and not in your custody anymore. 
  • Hela: The broken unit, with her on-reveal ability, it will end up reversing your discarded cards and will immediately grant them back to you. However, the cards will be placed in random locations instead of adding them to your deck. 
  • Hulk: A starter card, it will have no ability but will rather hone an impressive 6 energy cost and 11 power. 
  • Giganto: As for Giganto’s ability, neither will it be an on reveal, nor will it be an ongoing, but rather you will only be allowed to play the card on any left area, neither in the middle nor the right. 
  • The Infinaut: As for Infinaut, if you end up playing a card on your last turn, you will not be able to play the card on your next turn. 
  • Death: For each card that ends up being destroyed in your match when placed down, one energy cost immediately ends up being reduced. 
  • Lady Sif: One of the highest energy cost cards from your hands will end up being taken away from your possession. 


Now, when it comes to the playthrough for the deck, while the deck is amazing, there are inconsistencies here and there, and players will have difficulties playing it for the first time. Therefore, trial and error is the way to go. 

Depending on the type of RNG luck you have, it would be optimal to start with locations that can already buff up your cards. On your second turn, if you have accumulated enough energy, you can place Invisible Woman down on your left location, especially if it is a location like The Big House. 

On your third turn, players can feel free to go for a card they can place down in the middle lane. For this deck, the most optimal move would be to go for a card like Lady Sif that you can place down in the middle lane, and if it ends up being a place like Monster Metropolis, then you’re in luck. 

The reason is simply that if you are winning in that location or if you have the higher power there, you will immediately get a boost to your total power by +3. If your opponent has a card like Cosmo, they will play it in the left lane. With that, since they don’t play any card in the middle location due to cosmo, RNG is by your side, and you end up gaining 7 total power due to Monster Metropolis’ passive. 

Next turn, if you end up rolling Gambit and Blade in your playable deck, then you should place them down in the same deck where you placed Lady Sif. the passives of the cards will work in a way where Cosmo might end up getting destroyed, making it a lot easier for you to play your next turn. 

When it comes to your fifth turn, it will be sort of like a free-for-all. However, the final turn decides whether you win or lose the game, and the main reason behind that is Hela. Hela works in a way where she takes your discarded cards and distributes them to a random deck, and if you end up using her, you automatically win the game.
