Hello fellow Marvel Dice Throne enthusiasts! Today, I present to you my carefully curated ranking of the Marvel Dice Throne characters based on their power level. But before we delve into it, let me remind you to take this list with a pinch of salt. The heroes in this game are impressively well-balanced, making it incredibly challenging to create this tier list. I have done my utmost to consider each character as a whole, although it’s important to note that I haven’t had the opportunity to play every match multiple times. So, if you have a different opinion, please feel free to share your thoughts. I would love to engage in a conversation on this topic.
Without further ado, let’s jump into my current tier list:
1. Scarlett Witch
Scarlett Witch was a tough one to place. Once you comprehend the game mechanics, she unravels her true power. Initially, you might underestimate her due to the difficulty in rolling some of her base powers. However, with a few upgrades and dice-changing cards, she becomes an unstoppable force. With enough playtime, I believe Scarlett Witch could become a formidable opponent, equipped with all the necessary tools to overcome any player. While she doesn’t win every match-up effortlessly, she certainly dominates most of them.
2. Black Widow
Black Widow is an incredibly potent character, particularly when you start with a favorable hand. Not only is she the best character for upgrading powers, but she also possesses abilities that aid her in combat. Her time bombs, in particular, are devastating to her adversaries. With each upgrade, her attacks become increasingly stronger, and if opponents fail to roll a 6 on a dice to defuse her power bombs, they suffer a whopping 4 undefendable damage. Dealing with Black Widow’s time bombs can be a nightmare for her opponents and a great source of joy for the player controlling her.
3. Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange is undeniably a character for expert players. He stands out as the most unique hero in the game. However, to unleash his full potential, you must invest time into understanding his spells and casting mechanics. It may seem daunting at first and demands substantial strategy and critical thinking. Yet, when played correctly, Doctor Strange can outshine nearly every other character in terms of sheer power. If he were less complex, he would easily secure the number one spot. Nevertheless, for most players, mastering the good Doctor’s playstyle optimally prove to be quite challenging.
Thor is undoubtedly one of the strongest characters in the game, but determining his rank proved to be a difficult task. With his mighty hammer and powerful abilities, he feels like the cornerstone around which the entire game is built. Thor boasts remarkable strength, excellent balance, and the potential to deal massive damage if the dice rolls are in your favor. However, he is also susceptible to various effects and attacks. If only his defense were slightly better, he would most likely be my number one pick. Additionally, throwing Mjolnir is an exhilarating experience, making Thor a personal favorite of mine to play, regardless of his power level.
5. Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel is a character that excels in simplicity, making her an excellent choice for both beginners and experienced players. She is undeniably one of the game’s strongest characters, and her power is evident even without requiring extensive learning. In the hands of novices and experts alike, Captain Marvel wreaks havoc on the battlefield. However, the limited number of options may discourage some players. I will address this further in my upcoming post ranking the heroes based on “most fun” (spoiler alert: Captain Marvel won’t be near the top, haha).
Determining Miles Morales’s position was a challenging task. He is, perhaps, the most unpredictable character in the entire box. At times, he shines brilliantly, while on other occasions, he falls short. If you manage to accumulate combo tokens and attack twice, you are in for an exciting game. However, some of his other attacks may feel underpowered if you fail to maintain a steady flow of combo tokens. Personally, I tend to have lousy luck with dice rolls, which affects my perception of his strength. Nevertheless, playing as Spider-Man and webbing up opponents remains immensely enjoyable. Don’t let my ranking discourage you from giving him a shot. Even in defeat, you’ll have a blast.
Loki possesses a genuinely fascinating playstyle and can effectively utilize his powers if you are well-versed in Dice Throne mechanics. However, for newer players, he can be quite challenging to grasp and master. His abilities are highly thematic, allowing him to employ illusions to defend himself. Sometimes, these illusions successfully block all damage and prove to be amazing assets. Other times, they fail to provide any defensive advantage. Loki is undoubtedly a high-risk, high-reward character. I find him to either be brilliant or lackluster, with no middle ground. Nonetheless, he offers a lot of fun, particularly if you enjoy pushing your luck. Playing as Loki will undoubtedly remain one of your favorites.
8. Black Panther
Black Panther is a straightforward character to play, making him suitable for new players. However, despite ranking at the bottom of my list, he is by no means significantly underpowered. The entire cast of characters, in general, is impressively well-balanced, making it exceptionally difficult to choose the bottom section. I have indeed emerged victorious in several games as Black Panther. However, he seems to pose the most challenges when it comes to achieving victory. Nevertheless, thank you for reading my Marvel Dice Throne tier list. I am eager to hear your thoughts on it. See you soon, Marvel fans! – DB
