There are a few decks people in Marvel Snap love to run that can be easily countered if you have the right cards in your hand. This guide will tell you how to counter Discard and Destroy decks in Marvel Snap.
How to counter Discard and Destroy Decks
If you have been playing Marvel Snap for a considerable amount of time, you will have encountered two types of decks that seem to come up quite frequently. The two decks that you may have encountered are the Discard and Destroy Decks.
Discard and Destroy decks are designed to use cards that use a Reveal effect that destroys removes cards from their hands to gain more power. These decks can be some of the most powerful decks in Marvel Snap if they are executed correctly. Luckily there are a few ways to counter these decks and make your opponent rethink their next move.
One card to have on hand when facing a Destroy deck is the 2-Cost 3-Power Armor card. Armor is an Ongoing card that puts a shield around the location preventing cards from being destroyed. This is a great card to have when you see your opponent drop Nova, Bucky, or Wolverine. Putting Armor at the same location will prevent your opponent from destroying their cards.
One card I believe you should have in every deck you make is Cosmo. Cosmo is a 3-Cost 3-Power Ongoing card with the ability to stop any On Reveal abilities at that location. Playing Cosmo on one lane will ensure that any Destroy or Discard decks abilities will not happen. Just be sure to use your On Reveal cards on another lane, so Cosmo does not affect them.
Enchantress is a great card for players who love to play Morbius. Morbius has an Ongoing ability where it gains +2 Power for each discarded card. Enchantress will be able to depower Morbius with her On Reveal ability that removes all Ongoing abilities at that location. Enchantress is a 4-Cost 4-Power card, so you will have to wait until you know your opponent has played Morbius.
There are a few other cards to keep in mind when handling Discard and Destroy decks. Rogue is a good option as her On Reveal ability will steal an Ongoing ability from a random enemy card at the location you play it. Rogue is a 3-Cost 1-Power card.
The last card that could help is Leech. The big gamble with Leech is that you will have to wait until Turn 5 before you can use him. Leech is a 5-Cost 3-Power On Reveal card that removes the abilities from all cards in your opponent’s hand. A big risk waiting that long, but it could pay off with your opponent retreating.
Now that you know how to counter Discard and Destroy decks, dealing with them will be easier and you will make your opponent think twice before they make their next move. Stay tuned to Guide Stash and the Marvel Snap archives for all your guides and news.
