Marvel Snap: Ms. Marvel Decks and Synergies

How to Play Ms. Marvel in Marvel Snap

Welcome to another installment in our series where we cover new card releases and how to use them.

Ms. Marvel is the new Season Pass card for November, and she’s breathing some life into the Ongoing archetype. Ongoing decks haven’t had much dedicated support for while now, so hopefully Ms. Marvel will help.

Ongoing as an archetype definitely can struggle as there are plenty of counters like Rogue and Enchantress, but if Ms. Marvel is good enough, we may see Ongoing rise up in the meta.

Let’s get right into the guide.

Ms. Marvel Effect

Marvel Snap Ms. Marvel

Ongoing: Adjacent locations where your cards have unique Costs have +5 Power.

Effect Notes:

  • Adjacent locations will only check card costs individually.
  • There must be a card in the adjacent location to gain power.
  • Card cost is determined by the base cost, so no discounts or increases will apply.

Ms. Marvel Analysis

At first look, Ms. Marvel looks to be one of the strongest 4-cost cards in the game. With her ability active, you will be able to generate 15 Power with 4 Energy. For comparison, a regular match with Darkhawk will reach 14 Power if you play Korg, Rockslide, and Black Widow.

The main question is, how easy is it to fulfill Ms. Marvel’s condition. I may be off base here, but I imagine that her condition is quite easy to fulfill. Ongoing decks generally tend to play on curve (1-cost on turn 1, 2-cost on turn 2, etc) and you simply need to split your cards up to different locations.

Ongoing also has access to cards like Cosmo and Armor to try and disrupt other decks like Destroy or Hela. Overall, I’m quite high on Ms. Marvel, but her gameplay can seem a bit boring or lackluster as it’s just generating more Power.

Synergistic Cards

That being said, let’s go over some synergistic cards.

Onslaught and Ongoing

Marvel Snap Onslaught

Ongoing: Double your other Ongoing effects at this location.

Of course, the first synergy everyone will think about is Onslaught along with other Ongoing cards. Cards like Mister Fantastic and Klaw also provide Power to adjacent locations, and if you can stack the middle, you’ll be able to double all of that with Onslaught.

There are also other finishers you can use like Spectrum or Orka to end the game, making it harder for your opponent to calculate how much Power you can put on the board.

Ebony Maw

Marvel Snap Ebony Maw

There are a lot of cards with Ongoing abilities, but Ebony Maw is a good example to highlight. Ebony Maw’s biggest downside is that you can’t play cards at his location. With Ms. Marvel, you can still add power without playing cards there.

The same can be said for other cards like Klaw, Mister Fantastic, etc.


Marvel Snap Mystique

On Reveal: If the last card you played has an Ongoing, copy its text. (if it’s in play)

I won’t go and list out every single Ongoing card you can run, but one more mention I want to add is Mystique. She’s not an Ongoing card, but she pairs nicely with Ongoing cards. You will have the freedom to copy any Ongoing ability you want depending on the circumstance.

For the most part, you’ll likely look to copy Ms. Marvel at the middle location, but you could potentially copy something like Cosmo or Armor to shut down your opponent’s deck.

Ms. Marvel Decks

For this section, I’ll be mainly going over some decks that synergize with Ms. Marvel.

Keep in mind that these decks are all first impressions, so things can definitely change rapidly. As new discoveries are made, I will be updating our Full Tier List, rather than update this article.

Be sure to check it out to see what the best decks are.

Ms. Marvel Ongoing Deck

Marvel Snap Ms. Marvel Deck


This first deck is a simple Ongoing deck that just looks to put power on the board through various effects. Orka is another potential card you can run, either by cutting Spectrum or America Chavez.

Quinjet is there simply to be a 1-cost Ongoing card. This can be important for putting a card in a location you may not have one in already. Armor, Cosmo, and Goose are all Ongoing cards that can hopefully annoy opponents, but they can be swapped for higher Power cards like Lizard.

A deck like this can do pretty well, but if other decks are simply putting more Power on the board, it can be difficult to stop. Luckily, Armor and Cosmo do help the deck win some matchups, but only some.

Ms. Marvel Counters


Marvel Snap Echo

After your opponent plays an Ongoing card here, remove its abilities.

Echo is one of the best cards to counter Ongoing decks as she is a tech card that only costs 1. If placed in the middle, you will need to commit another card like Armor or Cosmo to eat up the Echo ability.


Marvel Snap Rogue

On Reveal: Steal the text from a random enemy Ongoing card here.

As with any Ongoing card, Rogue and Enchantress will shut them down. Rogue would be the absolute worst case scenario as your opponent could potentially steal 10 Power from you, not just stop it.

The one counter play to these tech cards is to play Cosmo in the middle before Ms. Marvel. This will allow your Ongoing cards to be safe from Rogue and Enchantress.



Another weakness to Ms. Marvel is that locations can be difficult to play around. Ms. Marvel always wants to be played in the middle, and this makes her much less flexible.

You won’t be able to make good use of strong locations on the right and left, and if you can’t access the middle location, the deck will suffer a lot.


This concludes our quick guide on Ms. Marvel. Overall, she doesn’t look like she’ll overtake the meta, but she’s helping out the Ongoing archetype similar to how cards like Modok and X-23 did for their archetypes.

Another thing to note is that Ms. Marvel is a good card for newer accounts as a lot of Ongoing cards are available in Series 1 and 2.

Hope this guide helped you out a bit, good luck in your games, and snap away!
