Among the strongest types of cards in Snap, Ongoing cards are the most versatile. Currently, these are the best Marvel Snap Ongoing cards in the game!
Marvel Snap has a large assortment of cards available to play with. Majority of these cards have their own special abilities that can be categorized into two types – On Reveal and Ongoing. On Reveal cards allow the player to activate the card’s unique attribute the moment they are played, whereas Ongoing cards have abilities that persist throughout the entire game. So, given how long these cards can affect the board, here are the best Marvel Snap Ongoing cards in the game right now!
Top 5 Marvel Snap Ongoing Cards
Ongoing cards can be some of the most powerful cards in Marvel Snap, especially when played using combos. They provide excellent location control as their abilities stay active until the end of the game. So, if you are interested in building a deck around Ongoing cards or want to incorporate a few of them into your play, here are the best picks:
Onslaught is arguably one of the best Ongoing cards in Marvel Snap because of two reasons – it is very easy to get and it has an incredible ability. Onslaught is a Pool 1 card, which means beginners can get it very early in the game. And Onslaught’s ability lets the player double the other Ongoing effects of cards in a particular location.
For instance, let’s say you have Blue Marvel in a location that has an Ongoing ability of providing +1 Power to your other cards. When you play Onslaught in the same location, it will double that power, which means Blue Marvel will provide +2 Power instead of +1. Apart from that, with 7-Power, Onslaught is a formidable drop in any location!
2. Devil Dinosaur
If you have been playing Marvel Snap for a while, then you should have come across this red dino several times! Devil Dinosaur is an incredibly powerful card that can win a single location by itself. And that is mainly due to its ability. This card will gain +2 Power for each card you have in your hand. So, with the right deck, Devil Dinosaur can become a menace on the board! Moreover, given that this card costs 5, it gives room for players to make a final play in the last turn to best optimize Devil Dinosaur’s ability.
3. Iron Man
Iron Man is not only one of the most popular superheroes in comic books and movies, but he is also incredibly powerful in Marvel Snap as well. His Ongoing ability is quite simple – the player’s total power is doubled in the location Iron Man is played. However, the possible combos that can be done with an ability like that is vast! You can drop both of the aforementioned cards in his location and easily win. You can also synergize with cards like Mystique, Omega Red, Ms. Marvel, etc.
4. Super Skrull
Similar to Iron Man, Super Skrull’s ability is quite simple – it has the ongoing abilities of all of your opponent’s cards. That is a game changer ability! Given that most cards are either classified as On Reveal or Ongoing, your opponent will more than likely have a few Ongoing cards in play that you can use for yourself with Super Skrull. For instance, if your opponent played power cards like Iron Man, Onslaught, or Omega Red, or utility cards like Wong, Quinjet, or Luke Cage, then these cards will enhance Super Skrull’s ability massively. The only drawback to this card is that your opponent has to have Ongoing cards in his deck for you to steal, otherwise it’s a bust!
Zabu is an incredible utility card to set up your next turns. His ability reduces the cost of your 4-Cost cards by 1, which means you can play them earlier or combo them with other cards in later turns. This means that decks that rely heavily on 4-Cost cards can greatly benefit from having Zabu on the board. Having the ability to play your big 4-Cost cards from as early as Turn 3 can give players a huge leg-up over their opponent.
With so many amazing Ongoing cards to choose from, it can be difficult to just pick a few. Hence, here are some notable honorable mentions that you should also consider:
- Quinjet (1/2) – Ongoing: Cards that didn’t start in your deck cost 1 less. (minimum 1)
- Wong (4/2) – Ongoing: Your On Reveal abilities here happen twice.
- Sera (5/4) – Ongoing: Cards in your hand cost 1 less. (minimum 1)
- Omega Red (5/4) – Ongoing: If you’re ahead by 10 Power here, +4 Power to other locations.
- Dazzler (3/2) – Ongoing: +2 Power for each location that’s full on your side.
Ongoing cards are some of the first cards that are unlocked in Marvel Snap, giving players the ability to mix and match them to their heart’s content. These cards are very powerful under the right conditions and are viable even in higher levels of play. So, what are you waiting for?
