How to build a Marvel Snap Cerebro deck

I've got the Power.

While you can put down some of the success of Marvel Snap to the franchise, its continued high play figures pay testament to the quality and variety of the gameplay. A deck of just 12 cards sounds restrictive, and playing just six short turns can appear trivial. But in reality, it packs a lot of tactical punch into a small package. There are so many heroes to build interesting decks around. Here we’ll talk about how to build a Marvel Snap Cerebro deck.

How to get Cerebro in Marvel Snap

Cerebro is a Pool Three card, which means you can only get Cerebro when you have a Marvel Snap collection level of 486 or higher. But once you get Cerebro, you can make some really fun, if often a little fragile, decks. Cerebro is a three-cost card with zero Power. But it has an Ongoing ability that gives your highest Power cards plus two Power.

The key word here is cards, in the plural. So, if you can get a lot of your played cards having the same ‘high’ Power, Cerebro can give you a huge Power boost. Here are some Cerebro deck ideas to work on.

  • Cerebro and Mystique: Mystique is another three-cost, zero-Power card that copies the Ongoing effect of the last card you played. So, if you can play her after Cerebro, you’re giving all your cards of the highest Power plus four.
  • Iron Man and Mister Fantastic: Cards such as Iron Man and Mister Fantastic increase Power in locations without affecting the Power of individual cards, so won’t disrupt your Cerebro plans by altering the Power of individual cards.
  • Storm and Scarlet Witch: As you’re relying on the stability of Power numbers, location issues can ruin your day. Storm can lock a location down fast, while Scarlet Witch can change a location completely.
  • Going for three Power: Bast sets the Power of all cards in your hand to three, while Valkyrie sets the Power of all cards at a location to three.
  • Going for two Power: Flooding the board with cheap two-Power cards can work well, using the likes of Brood (adds two two-Power Broodlings to the location) and Mister Sinister (adds a two-Power Sinister clone to its location).
