Marvel Snap is a unique Collectable Card Game with a hidden unlock mechanic that the game doesn’t tell you about. Each of the cards is put into one of three different card pools, and they are unlocked randomly until you power up your collection level by upgrading cards and moving on to a new pool. Below, we’ll show you every card in Pool 1 and help you build a deck out of these beginner cards.

The best deck using Pool one cards

We built our own deck out of the cards featured in this guide. The ideal strategy would be to start with Elecktra or Medusa, then use Forge to power up Carnage or Scarlet Witch if necessary. Try to save Spider-Woman for a spot with three or four cards on the other side, and use Hulk, Abomination, and Devil Dinosaur to fill any gaps you see. Matches in Snap are over quickly, so stay focused and don’t get hung up on any one win or loss for too long.
