Are you looking for the best Marvel Snap decks for Bar Sinister? Marvel Snap has quietly come and dominated the gaming scene, bringing many players into its fold – some new, and some old veterans of the genre. With such a big game making a name for itself in such a short time, it’s understandably bringing in a lot of players who are unfamiliar with the genre and perhaps need a helping hand.
While Marvel Snap does a decent job of onboarding new players, once the training wheels are off, it can be a daunting task. One of the biggest gameplay mechanics of Marvel Snap is the introduction of locations on the board. You place your cards down in said locations in order to win, but these areas also provide gameplay modifiers. As expected, some are trickier than others, and this week’s feature location, Bar Sinister, is one of the most challenging to overcome so far.

Best Decks For Bar Sinister In Marvel Snap
Featured locations in Marvel Snap only appear for a limited time and have a 40% chance of appearing on your board. While that’s less than 50/50, it’s important to prepare ahead on the off chance it sneaks up on you. Bar Sinister features a modifier that causes any card played on it to be copied a further three times, meaning you’ll get a powerful advantage if you play the right card.
There are a couple of really good decks to use in Marvel Snap to combat this, and we’ve highlighted a few for you to hopefully win the battle with ease.
Marvel Snap Starter Deck
While you may think you need a wide range of cards to take on Bar Sinister, the starter deck is actually fairly competent in its own right. This is thanks to having a ton of cards that require low energy to use, meaning within a few turns you can put down characters such as Iron Man, who will double your total power at the location. Additionally, there is also Hulk or Abomination – both of which deliver devastating power.
An ideal Starter Deck for Marvel Snap to take on Bar Sinister may look like this:
- Star Lord
- Captain America
Pool 1 Marvel Snap Decks
A great choice for Pool 1 players is to utilize Professor X. His ability to lock down a location, whilst also providing four times the power, is a great way to keep control of Bar Sinister. In the run-up to using him, it’s important to keep your opponent busy on the other two locations for maximum effect with characters such as Enchantress.
Here’s a look at a worthwhile Pool 1 deck to use in Marvel Snap:
- Professor X
- Iron Man
- Hulk Buster
- The Punisher
- Blue Marvel
Pool 2 Marvel Snap Deck
If you have reached Pool 2, a mixture of all the cards you’ve acquired so far is an excellent choice for tackling Bar Sinister in Marvel Snap. With the Kazoo deck, you can pretty much control the playing field with cards such as Nightcrawler, who is allowed to move across the locations, and Blue Marvel, who will increase your other cards’ power by +1.
Here’s everything that comes in the Kazoo deck in Marvel Snap:
- Rocket Racoon
- Blue Marvel
- Iron Man
Pool 3 Marvel Snap Deck
Finally, for anyone who has reached Pool 3, incorporating Electro and Destroyed into your deck is a lethal combination. Firstly, Electro will increase your max energy by +1, meaning if you play him on Bar Sinister, you’ll receive a +4 boost fairly quickly. This will allow you to use Destroyer fairly quickly and throw a heavy blow to your opponent.
Try using this assortment of cards to tackle Bar Sinister in Marvel Snap:
- Adam Warlock
- Devil Dinosaur
- Professor X
- Arnim Zola
These are just a few of the combinations you can use, but as always, Marvel Snap is about experimentation. Feel free to use a mixture of all the decks for a possible upper hand in many of your future battles.
