Saw Killmonger for the first time. Costs 3, strength 3. KILLS ALL 1-costers, including your own, but you could easily deck build around that.

You are supposed to use him with Nova who powers up all your cards when destroyed.

It appears that there are a few mechanics at this stage:
On reveal, ongoing, move, destroy, discard.

Also I looked it up, there are three pools of cards each tied to the collection track. When you get which card in a pool is random until you hit that level and you will have them all, but everyone will have every card (except miles morales) for free eventually.

After running an Odin deck for awhile, I’ve switched to a Heimdal/“Move” deck and it’s working pretty well, even though I don’t have Miles.

The new Bar Sinister location is amazing. Quadruple Forge into Mister Sinister is two energy for twenty power.

I think the locations are the secret sauce to Snap. They avoid rote play to keep you thinking game to game and add a dose of chance that can take the sting out of losing if you can’t take advantage of the powers.

Moon Girl to max out your hand, Devil Dinosaur into Bar Sinister = 68 power.

The problem is winning at least one other location after I focus on that.

Which is why prefer blue marvel. It adds 4 power to every other card at every other location. Hulk Buster is cute though. It latches into itself to create a 16 power card and leaves room for 3 more cards.

Someone quadrupled Odin. I was just waiting for the game to crash.

It took a long, long time. The other guy didn't do that they picked a character that copies a card in my hand, which was Odin. Solid three minutes of cards popping up and down.

I think I figured out the FTP economy. Don't spend credit on anything except upgrades that you have sufficient boosters to upgrade (credits are the wall). Don't spend gold on anything except refreshing the daily missions (which give you more credits and season's pass XP if you actually want to play the game push you to the weekly goal faster, and typically give you a goal instead of aimless playing). Everything else is throwing resources at a wall. Outside of missions there really isn't any advancement to be had by playing as you will be waiting for credits and will hit walls against whales who have cards beyond your available pool.

The randomness of locations, while making the game enjoyable, make it very difficult to advance past certain ranks.

I pulled Killmonger (Kills ALL 1 power cards) almost directly after hitting tier 2, so I put a kill deck together with a single 1 cost card. You can hear the cursing when you drop killmonger turn six and take out a half dozen powered up cards. It devastates Kazar/Blue Marvel decks.

Korg into Bar Sinister has been an automatic play for me lately, so I’m salivating at Killmonger wiping him to replay something else to the freshly vacated bar.

I got crushed by someone getting 3k at each location via bar sinister. Requires nightcrawler, blue marvel, and onslaught.

Yondo? That would eat for Cards from thier deck. They would literally run out of cards.

Just started playing today. It's addictive. Haven't played around with any deck building yet.

As mentioned before, I'm also wondering if I'm playing against bots or something because I haven't lost yet or customized my deck or even read my cards thoroughly enough to strategize.

First levels are bots if I recall. I'd Snap every match until i started losing. Didn't realize how it worked until i missed that chance.

It gets ugly once you hit Tier 2 (Collection Level 222) I'm about 50/50 on wins and losses and a crap set of locations can devastate any plans. I HATE the "play with random cards" or "play with your opponent's hand" No, idiots, I build my decks so I know what I have. Still trying to find a good way to use Killmonger.
