If six turn games weren’t mould-breaking enough for you, Marvel Snap’s hot locations are yet another way that Second Dinner is spicing up the world of CCGs. These locations appear every Wednesday and Sunday for just 24 hours, changing up the meta to suit a specific effect. We’re here to help you understand this week’s location and know what to play to keep your precious cubes.

We’ve got loads of great Marvel Snap content for you here on Pocket Tactics, including a list of the best Marvel Snap cards, a Marvel Snap tier list, and a summary of the best Marvel Snap decks.

What is the Marvel Snap hot location?

Every Sunday an existing location in Marvel Snap becomes ‘hot’, and every Wednesday a new location is featured, meaning they appear 50% more frequently than usual for 24 hours. 

The hot location for March 19 is Asteroid M, which has the effect ‘after you play a 3 or 4 cost card, move it here’.

What deck should I play for this featured location?

Asteroid M lends itself to move decks, especially Vulture, who gets a +5 power boost when he moves. So, both of our decks are built to get the best out of the Spiderman baddie, with a bit of differentiation to take card pools into account.

High-cost Asteroid M deck

This location offers a unique synergy between Shrui and Vulture, combining to give the big bad bird 15 total power when Asteroid M pulls it over. Then, you can either Taskmaster in another lane to pick up Vulture’s power, or use a surprise Heimdall to pull Vulture over once again for an extra five power. If you can play Psylocke to get Shuri out on turn three, things can get really chaotic with this deck.

  • The Human Torch
  • Pyslocke
  • Cloak
  • Vulture
  • Doctor Strange
  • Juggernaut
  • Shang-Chi
  • Shuri
  • Aero
  • Vision
  • Heimdall
  • She-Hulk

This deck is made entirely of Series One, Two, and starter cards, making it extremely F2P friendly. It revolves around moving mid-cost cards to gain an advantage, with Vulture’s +5 power boost kicking in as soon as Asteroid M pulls it over. Add Doctor Strange to the mix, and you can get Vulture at some serious power levels.
