Marvel Snap’s Nimrod is a multiplying mutant killer

Marvel Snap’s Nimrod is famous for taking out members of the X-Men, but this robot is most powerful when it can manage to destroy itself

The latest card to join Second Dinner’s superpowered mobile title, Marvel Snap’s Nimrod, is proving to be a menace already. The mutant killer famous from the Days of Future Past comic run is finally available in-game, with a multiplying ability that means even destruction works in this card’s favour. If I were you, I wouldn’t want to be in the X-Men right now.

Arriving as part of the premium season pass, Marvel Snap’s Nimrod is a perfect fit for most destruction decks, with his five power multiplying into ten across two lanes when destroyed. If you can take out two Nimrods, say with a turn five Destroyer or Galactus, things can get really crazy, with your two five power cards turning into four, with a combined 20 power across the board.

If you want to get even more chaotic – and god knows I like my Marvel Snap chaotic – Nimrod is also a perfect partner for Arnim Zola, creating several copies all over the board through one play. If you’ve got a Knull on the board, that card can pick up five points of power for every Nimrod destroyed, making for some extraordinary power totals at the end of the game.

Whether Marvel Snap’s addition of Nimrod changes the meta much is yet to be seen, but the arrival of Professor X’s worst nightmare is sure to put more of an emphasis on destroy decks. If you’re looking for a counter to Nimrod, you can’t go much better than Armor, putting a stop to any destruction of cards that share her lane.
