All new cards in Marvel Snap | New hero card costs, powers, and abilities

It's the first time so many cards have been added to Marvel Snap since launch.

Marvel Snap is about to get a new season in early December. It will be called The Power Cosmic, and features a new Silver Surfer card. But Second Dinner has confirmed fans can expect a different season, with several new cards added to the game.

In total, 16 new cards will be added across two new categories, Series Four and Series Five. Series are what players know as pools, but unlike how pools one, two, and three work, you don’t need to finish pool three to start getting cards from pool four.

These new cards will be purchasable through Collector’s Reserve or the Token Shop, a new feature that is also being added to give players more agency over which cards they unlock. 

The new mechanics shouldn’t get in the way of the philosophy of keeping all cards completely accessible to all players. Second Dinner’s plans are to have the cards move back one pool every few months, making them less rare as time goes by.

Here are all the cards that will be added to the new pools in The Power Cosmic season of Marvel Snap.

All the added cards had already been discovered through datamine, but only now do we have an official date for their appearance in the game.

The cards here are ten times rarer than the cards currently present in pool three, so it might take some time for players to get them all. There are ten cards in total.

Only as players unlock new cards and use them in different decks will it be possible to analyze which form the best additions and which need a little help.
