Marvel Snap June 2023 Balance Changes and more

New changes in the game!

With players enjoying the latest Conquest Mode, the developers at Marvel Snap have decided that a new bunch of Balance Changes are live in the game. This adds up to the essential updates and changes that have been made for this month, as a part of the June 2023 Update. Let us break down the set of Balance changes made in the month of June 2023 in Marvel Snap.

Marvel Snap June 2023 Balance Changes: Buffs and Nerfs


Red Skull

  • Old: 5/12 – Ongoing: Enemy cards at this location have +1 Power.
  • New: 5/14 – Ongoing: Enemy cards at this location have +2 Power.

Red Skull terrorized our meta for a while in a strong partnership with Shuri. Now that Shuri has been nerfed, devs felt it was a good time to restore Red Skull to a higher value. Red Skull is a more interesting card with more base Power and a more detrimental Ongoing effect. This has helped him perform well in decks with cards like Enchantress, Sauron, and of course Shuri. Developers hope powering up Red Skull will give these decks a boost and create more meta diversity.

Nick Fury

  • Old: 5/7 on reveal adds 3 random 6-Cost cards to your hand.
  • New: 4/5 on reveal adds 3 random 6-Cost cards to your hand.

Nick Fury has never quite found a place to shine. As a 5-Cost that grants 6-Cost cards, there’s not much time to take advantage of the cards he spawns. By bumping him down to a 4-Cost, effects like Titan and Quinjet give players the opportunity to play two of his reinforcements on turns 5 and 6. It gives Agent Coulson the ability to give Nick a call when he’s in a jam and could use some avenging.


  • Old: 5/5 When this is destroyed, it adds a copy to each other location.
  • New: 5/6 When this is destroyed, it adds a copy to each other location.

Although the buff on Nimrod was on the wishlist for a while, developers feared that would make Galactus more popular as a consequence since that was the most popular Nimrod deck. Now that developers have shipped our Galactus Nerf, they are confident in giving Nimrod a small boost that will hopefully make him more promising fodder for Forge, Shuri, and Venom. There are some upcoming cards which are in plans, which would expect to reward destroying cards even more.


  • Old: 4/0
  • New: 0/0

Spider-Ham’s token wasn’t meant to consider its own base cost to be 4, and that has some interactions with cards and locations like Zabu and Asteroid M that just isn’t intuitive to play with. Developers at Marvel Snap re-adjusting it to 0-Cost to avoid those interactions.


Doctor Doom

  • Old: 6/5 on reveal adds a 5-Power DoomBot to each other location.
  • New: 6/5 on reveal adds a 4-Power DoomBot to each other location.

Doctor Doom is our most-played 6-Cost card by a large margin and for good reason. His ability to spread power and bypass restrictive locations makes him an excellent card in many past and current top decks like Lockdown, Electro Ramp, and Lockjaw. In fact, he’s so good at contesting “closed” locations that he actually encourages decks to be built around doing so more often.

By taking 1 Power off his DoomBots, developers are looking to tone down his overall strength and improve the diversity among our 6-Cost cards in top decks. While devs are sad to lose the symmetry between Doctor Doom and his DoomBots, they hope this will bring his decks more in line with the rest of the competition.

Final Thoughts

As a part of the bonus update, developers are taking Krakoa out of the game to be redesigned at a future date. The devs have also pointed out that a full-sized patch will be currently scheduled for July 11th, 2023.
