Death and Galactus are about to get really annoying.
Marvel Snap players finally got their chance to pull Galactus after Second Dinner Collector’s Tokens released along with Series 4 and 5. Galactus has an incredibly unique ability where he destroys all other locations, forcing players to fight head-up for a single lane.
It also pairs incredibly well with Death, a 9-cost card that’s reduced each time a card is destroyed. If you get Galactus out on turn 4 or 5, you’ll likely be able to destroy a whole bunch of cards, resulting in a 0-cost death.
Enter Knull, who will be the next Series 5 card to be added to Marvel Snap. Knull is a 6-cost, 0-power card with an ongoing ability that allows it to gain the combined power of all cards destroyed during that game, which is absolutely insane. This makes Knull a natural pairing with both Galactus and Death, and it might be a fool to go up against a big powerhouse like this.
There are of course ways to counteract this. Cards like Leader, Shang-Chi, and Enchantress can handle Knull to a lesser extent, but you need to be aware that Galactus decks often do Spider-Man as well. If Galactus folds on 4 and Spider-Man is played on 5, you cannot react on turn 6, which usually means an automatic loss.
Marvel Snap is available now on PC and mobile.
