Marvel Snap January 31, 2023 Update: Balance Changes
Leader is a prominent “finisher” in the current Snap meta, and developers are not happy with some of the card choices and play patterns he encourages, especially the strength against other cool 6-cost cards. They are changing Leader to only copy cards played at the location to his right, with more base Power to compensate. The developers hope that this change will reward clever predictions and reduce the frustration of playing against him.
On Reveal: This copies all cards which the opponent played to the location to the right, but on your side.
Wolverine sees virtually no play at the moment, which is a bummer given how iconic he is. Developers are giving him a substantial buff to reward players for activating his effect and create new deckbuilding options at both low and high collection levels.
Changes: When this is discarded or destroyed, players regenerate it at a random location with +2 Power.
Developers have updated his text from “play” to “regenerate” to better reflect his gameplay functionality.
In addition to Wolverine, a few cards use the word “play” in their text but don’t actually play anything. This small update aims to avoid players misinterpreting how these cards interact with triggers that specify playing a card:
Using more consistent language for similar effects.
In this piece, Text-Only Updates are made to the following:
- The Raft: Removing the word “draw” for accuracy.
- Vibranium Mines: Removing “a card” for brevity.
That’s all about the latest update in Marvel Snap.
