Most Marvel Snap players go through a similar experience. At first, they are drawn to powerful cards like Hulk that bring massive stats to the game. However, they soon realize that cards with abilities outshine those without, even if the latter have slightly lower stats. But then, along comes Patriot, and everything changes!
Patriot is a game-changing card that makes previously inferior cards like Shocker, Cyclops, and The Thing viable in competitive play. In fact, Patriot decks have become incredibly powerful and can be played either exclusively or in combination with cards like Silver Surfer for even more combo madness. So, if you’re looking to dominate Marvel Snap using cards without abilities, here are the best Patriot decks you can start using!

As mentioned, Patriot boosts the power of every card without abilities by two. This includes base cards like Shocker and cards spawned by Brood, Squirrel Girl, Ultron, and more. To optimize your Patriot deck, it’s essential to have numerous zero-ability cards that can benefit from the buff. Additionally, consider cards like Blue Marvel, Onslaught, and Mystique to increase your buff potential.
Standard Patriot Deck
The standard Patriot deck focuses on simplicity and getting cards on the board while maximizing their buff potential. To achieve this, you’ll want to spawn lots of tokens using Debrii and Squirrel Girl, and enhance your buff capacity with cards like Kazar.
Standard Patriot Deck List:
- Misty Knight
- Squirrel Girl
- Mister Sinister
- Blue Marvel
Patriot + Silver Surfer Deck
If Patriot alone is not sufficient as a win condition, why not add another one to your deck? Silver Surfer is an immensely powerful card, and when paired with Patriot, things become even crazier. In this strategy, you’ll focus on building up your locations early in the game, then unleash Sera on turn five. This will enable you to play Wong and Silver Surfer on the final turn for maximum buff potential.
Patriot + Silver Surfer Deck List:
- Silver Surfer
Multiple Win Condition Patriot

If three or four win conditions still aren’t enough for you, then this is the deck for you! This Patriot deck combines every win condition in the game into one, creating a Frankenstein abomination of a build. However, piloting this deck requires great care in order to achieve decent results. As you play, you may need to adapt your strategy and lean more into a specific win condition depending on the flow of the game.
Multiple Win Condition Patriot Deck List:
- Mister Sinister
- Silver Surfer
- Mister Negative
- White Tiger
And those are the best Patriot decks in Marvel Snap!
