Marvel Snap pools, explained – How do Card Pools work?

It's time to pool our resources.

Marvel Snap is a fast-paced card battle game where players construct their own decks of 12 cards. The more you play and win, the more cards become available. This allows you to tune your deck and find those killer combos that will devastate your opponents. But while you may see some awesome cards in other players’ decks, you might not be able to get them yet. Here we’ll explain why, as well as what Marvel Snap card pools are.

How to get Marvel Snap Pool 3 cards

When you start, you’ll potentially have access to all the cards in Marvel Snap Pool 1. Some of these cards will be given to you at set times, while others will be available to buy or given randomly as you advance. The key to moving to the higher card pools is increasing your Collection Level, which you do by improving the rarity of cards in your collection. This is done via gaining card Boosters through the Shop (spending Credits) and battle rewards. To get Marvel Snap Pool 3 cards, you’ll have to upgrade many of your Pool 1 and Pool 2 cards and raise the Collection Levels ranks.

You will continue to gain Marvel Snap Pool 1 cards until you reach Collection Level 214. At that point, you’ll have all the Pool 1 cards. From Collection Level 222 to 474, you’ll receive Pool 2 cards. And after that, Pool 3. Upgrading is easy at first, as upgrading to Uncommon only costs 25 Credits. But each card can go then through Rare (100 Credits), Epic (200), Legendary (300), and Ultra Legendary (400), right up to Infinity (500). You can buy some Credits with Gold, Marvel Snap’s largely real-cash currency. But it will still take a lot of work to make it to Pool 3.
