  • The Command Zone
      1. Discussion on new cards we got and spec ideas
  • Main Topic - Marvel Snap
  • Disclaimer
        1. We are not switching to be a podcast about Marvel Snap. It’s ok if you want to leave now, we won’t resent you. 
  • Quick Summary
        1. Fast paced 12 card singleton deck battler
        2. Games are usually less than 5 minutes
          1. 6 turn games baring TVA or Magik
        3. 3 Center locations that are revealed left to right on turns 1-3
          1. These are kinda like Magic’s lands as they introduce a large amount of variance into the game
  • Is Marvel Snap a competitor to Magic?
        1. Discuss Arena vs Snap
        2. Developer communication
        3. Not as deep a game as Magic, but still really meaty
  • Currency
        1. Gold 
          1. Can be used to purchase Credits, refresh Missions, or Variants. It can be earned from caches or rank levels. 
          2. Can also be purchased with money.
        2. Credits 
          1. Earned through missions and caches or purchased with Gold. 
          2. Can be used to level up cards and buy fast upgrades
        3. Tokens 
          1. Earned from caches on the collector level.
          2. Used to buy cards from the Token Shop
  • Boosters
          1. Earned from playing games, gaining Card Levels, and gaining Season Levels
  • Cubes
          1. Earned from playing games. Contributes to your Rank
  • Effective Ways to Use Currency
  • Gold
          1. Always best used to refill quests to earn points for the ladder and tokens to upgrade cards.
        1. Credits
          1. I always upgrade all cards once. After that, I will usually level the cards I play.
          2. I feel like you get more bang for your buck when you save up a day's worth of credits to upgrade cards.
  • Tokens
          1. Buy cards that enable a new deck with other cards you already own
          2. Significant upgrades to current decks
  • Cubes
          1. Discuss Snapping
  • Now that we understand currency, is the season pass worth it?
          1. Discuss
  • Ladders
  • Collection Level: 
          1. A ladder you climb by upgrading cards where you can earn gold, credits, tokens, new cards, and various other aesthetics
        1. Rank
          1. Your rank rises by how many cubes you earn from games. 
          2. As you rise in rank you can get gold, variants, or credits.
          3. Resets every Season
  • Season Ladder: 
          1. Gives you a new card every month and you gain gold, tokens, boosters, variants, and other aesthetics.
  • Weekly Challenge
          1. Earned by completing quests. 
          2. Earns Gold, Tokens, Seasonal Ladder Points
  • Decks
        1. I personally love the dynamic deck building this game offers. 
        2. You don’t have to have an optimal deck to win
        3. Multiple versions of the same deck (IE. Aggro Sera Surfer vs Control)
        4. The meta changes Monthly, at a minimum every month, but there are also Hot and Featured locations
          1. Hot locations are in 60% of games and appear for a 24 hour window
          2. Featured locations are in 40% of games, and appear for a 48 hour window
  • Collecting New cards
        1. This is the funnest part of the game, and seeing yoru collection grow is pretty satisfying, and something I think most Magic players would enjoy (It’s kinda like opening a booster, but guaranteed to get new cards only)
