Best Galactus Deck in Marvel Snap With Tutorial

You face Galactus... wait, that's not this game.

by Nikola L

Until recently, Galactus was a card that you could get only through random generation, seeing it was rare, let alone with the effect enabled. Now, Galactus is a member of Pool 5, and it is more obtainable. However, it’s quite expensive when we glance at the Token price (6000 right now).

You will rarely see a Galactus deck nowadays, but it’s best to be prepared for the situations when you get a read on the opponent that Galactus is coming, and of course, to have a decklist ready for your first test run! Prima Games has you covered for both, and we hope you’ll enjoy the read.

Galactus Deck Code for Marvel Snap

The premise of the Galactus Deck is to cheat it out on Turn 4 or Turn 5 by using the abilities of Electro or Wave. After you destroy two-thirds of the battlefield, you are supposed to close out the game. There are variants with Doctor Octopus, Armor, Killmonger, Psylocke, and Spider-Man that go instead of Shang-Chi, but I’ve made this list with the idea of having more control in the end game. A little bit about every card. The deck plays similarly to the DeathWave deck.

  1. Hood
    It’s there to feed Death
  2. Black Widow
    It’s there to grief the opponent before or after you drop Galactus. The opponent has to play the product of Black Widow, or new cards cannot be drawn.
  3. Green Goblin and Hobgoblin
    They are here to clog the board for the enemy. Take care if the enemy plays an Odin.
  4. Electro
    Combo enabler. Make sure to have him killed due to his Ongoing ability.
  5. Wave
    Combo enabler.
  6. Shang-Chi
    When the situation is tight, you can wreck your opponent’s dreams.
  7. Iron Man
    The semi-decent choice to play on Turn 5 after Galactus on Turn 4, because it can significantly amplify your other cards.
  8. Galactus
    The boss card we built this deck around.
  9. America Chavez
    Deck thinner, you will rarely play her.
  10. Hulk
    Hard hitter for the last turn.
  11. Death
    You will play her for free last turn (or earlier).

Since Galactus depends on having an empty location to spout his nonsense on you, you can counter this with:

  • Green Goblin
  • Hobgoblin
  • Debrii
  • Cosmo (if your cards will be revealed first and/or your opponent has no other free locations)
  • Viper
  • Spider-Man (a bit tricky)
  • Professor X (a bit tricky)
  • Doctor Octopus (play his Galactus INVOLUNTARILY on a full Location)

Gaming since being able to hold an Amiga 500 joystick on my own, back in the 90s :) I have been through a lot of different video, board, and card games and it seems that I do not intend to stop any time soon.
