Marvel Snap hot location

Twice a week we’re blessed with a new hot location to play into or desperately try to avoid in Marvel Snap. Here’s the best decks to play this week.

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 featured location for April 12 is Avengers Pet Mansion, which has the effect ‘This turn, all cards must be played here’.

What deck should I play for this featured location?

To be completely honest, Avengers Pet Mansion has very little effect on your deck choices or game plan. It either flips in the first three turns of the game which often aren’t that impactful anyway, or it doesn’t show up. Essentially, just play whatever you’re comfortable with!

We’ve listed a couple of archetypes below that could be fun to play into Avengers Pet Mansion.

Junk Avengers Pet Mansion deck

This deck is all about filling the lanes with junk! Making sure all cards go to the same location on one turn benefits this strategy so it gets a slight boost from the location flipping.


  • The Hood
  • Titania
  • Black Widow
  • Luke Cage
  • Carnage
  • Hazmat
  • Viper
  • Green Goblin
  • Debrii
  • Shang-Chi
  • Spider-Man
  • Spider-Woman

Control Avengers Pet Mansion deck

This standard control deck works well into the featured location too as it revolves around limiting where your opponent can play cards anyway.


  • Sunspot
  • Iceman
  • Scorpion
  • Lizard
  • Mister Fantastic
  • Storm
  • Wave
  • Polaris
  • Shang-Chi
  • Crossbones
  • Doctor Doom
  • She-Hulk
