As players begin to fill out their collection by unlocking Series 1 and Series 2 cards, most will find out that Odin is one of the sweetest cards out there. Doubling up On Reveal effects is always great value, but what if there was a way to go even further. What if, you could double up the double up effects. Thanks to Wong, the dream is alive.
Wong allows players to create devastating plays with a only a pair of On Reveal cards. This one card provides crazy moments in Marvel Snap that you thought could only happen in theory. There are a ton of different ways to utilize the Sorcerer Supreme, so here are just a few Wong deck examples to get the creative juices flowing.
General warning: This deck gets absolutely hosed by Cosmo. Wong himself is a giant, glowing threat that screams “deal with me or lose”, and most of the time decks do have something to say about it. So fair warning for every “Cons” section down below, just imagine there’s additional bullet that reads “game plan is ruined when Cosmo is in the location”.
Deck List: Iceman, Okoye, Scorpion, Ironheart, Wolfsbane, Jubilee, Wong, Jessica Jones, White Tiger, Odin, America Chavez, The Infinaut
– Flexible, doesn’t need a certain line of play to win
– Fun to steal wins with Jubilee
– A bit of RNG involved with White Tiger
– Sometimes just too slow
Realistically, newer players can absolutely play this list without Wong and they will be just fine. But if you came here to find a deck list, you probably already have Wong and are looking to use him right away. This budget list is a great option for those who are still working on growing their collection. Every card but Wong is gained by simply increasing Collection Level, making this list great for players at any CL.
The main objective of this list is to set up the big wombo-combo: Wong + White Tiger + Odin. This little set up produces 28 power split between the two other locations, almost always securing a win on the last turn. In theory you don’t really need to do anything for three turns and you could still probably win with just these three cards. In fact you probably don’t even want to have cards played already. You won’t get the max amount of tigers otherwise.
When that combination isn’t there, this deck becomes all about the smaller combos. Wong and Ironheart are awesome together as they pump up a ton of other cards on your board. Wong and Jubilee always brings out two cards – both of which usually have their own On Reveal ability too.
The unfortunate part of White Tiger is that they do send out the tigers at random. You can built your board in such a way that you can guarantee the landing spot, but that can be tricky in slower games. Wolfsbane and Jessica Jones can be a bit of an anti-combo at times as well, and players will have to be mindful about where they are setting up those mid-game beaters.
Deck List: Korg, Psylocke, Bishop, Brood, Ironheart, Mr. Fantastic, Maximus, Mystique, Silver Surfer, Zabu, Wong, Sera
– Wins in one turn
– Can hide the combo for later turns
– Even more easy to disrupt than other Wong decks
– Hard to win without Silver Surfer
Combo players, this just may be your type of deck. This list wants to dump their hand on the very last turn in order to win without the opponent being able to disrupt the plan. Sera is one of the key cards here as it lets you play three, three energy cards on the last turn. Though it isn’t going to always line up the way you want it to, so cards like Zabu and Psylocke help speed up the plan a turn.
The goal here is to double up the Silver Surfer On Reveal ability to give your cards a massive power boost to swing the game and hopefully steal 8 cubes. Brood is a must-add for this deck as it provides three, three cost cards for the price of one.
What this list needs to watch out for is Enchantress or Rogue. These two cards can really throw a wrench into the game plan if they remove either Zabu’s or Wong’s Ongoing effect. The other hiccup is when this deck doesn’t draw Silver Surfer. It loses a ton of power if that little silver dude isn’t in your hand.
Black Panther/ Zola
Deck List: Korg, Iceman, Scorpion, Psylocke, Forge, Lizard, Okoye, Electro, Rhino, Wong, Black Panther, Zola
– Don’t always need Zola
– Not always reliant on comboing off
– Suddenly, Armor and Wakanda become a problem
– Need to keep locations empty
This list was the flavor of the month when Black Panther was first released. It has that “wow”-factor that some players are looking for when playing a Wong list. Wong into BP into Zola just feels like infinite power. If the conditions are right, Zola can hit Wong, which will then give each other location Wong, which will then double the power of the already doubled up Black Panther. I’m not great at math, as I’m simply a writer, but im sure thats about a billion power for your board (it’s actually 256).
While those situations don’t always occur, there is still a bunch of game in this list. Copying Black Panther without Wong is still completely playable, and there will be times where Zola doesn’t even lead to a winning play. The combo is still the number one option, but games can be won with simply slamming an 8-power Black Panther.
This deck does struggle against random things that pop up. Bad locations like Wakanda or Nowhere are very annoying and make you play a bit differently than you would like. There will be times that your opponent snipes your Black Panther with a second-flip Shang-Chi, but more often than that you won’t really want to play around that.
