Best Mirage Decks in Marvel Snap

The latest addition to Marvel Snap is the X-Men’s finest warrior; ‘Mirage.’ She is a 2-cost, 2-power card that reads: ‘On Reveal: Copy the lowest-Cost card in your opponent’s hand into your hand. Give it +2 Power.’ Immediately, this effect sounds extremely fun-to-use as you can steal one of your opponent’s plays but make it better. However, upon further inspection, the reason why this effect is really over-powered is because it gives you information about your opponent’s hand. This insight is very valuable in forging solid game plans that predict your opponent’s plays. The card itself seems very versatile which can leave players a bit puzzled in terms on where she works best. Therefore, this article will cover the best decks to use Mirage in, and which cards synergize best with her.

DinoRage – Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Everybody loves playing Devil Dinosaur. It’s easy-to-pilot and a lot of fun when you when. Despite it being generally linear in its play pattern, the random card generation from both Agents and Nick Fury make for a unique experience each game. Mirage is a welcome addition that buffs The Collector and gives you an extra tool to work with. The deck list is as follows:

  • Kitty Pryde
  • Agent 13 (or Quinjet)
  • Zabu
  • Angela (or Maria Hill)
  • The Collector
  • Mirage
  • Sentinel
  • Agent Coulson (or Mystique, Klaw)
  • White Queen
  • Moon Girl
  • Nick Fury
  • Devil Dinosaur

Quinjet would work fantastically in this deck, discounted the buffed, copied card from Mirage. Therefore, feel free to substitute it in for another card such as Agent. (Note: only reason we prefer Agent over Quinjet is because we have a sick variant for her, I’m sure you can understand). That aside, playing Devil Dinosaur is always pretty reliable. It has a standard play pattern that can still surprise opponents with its card draws. Mystique is also a great choice to add and so is Klaw. One could also argue that Maria Hill is a better inclusion than Angela. There are many ways to play a Devil Dino deck, so our advice is to replace your least valuable card in your personal Dino deck with Mirage.

Bounce, Bounce, Baby – Revival of the Nerfed

A few familiar faces return in Kitty Pryde, Agent & The Collector. They help make this deck as meta as possible. Additionally, the amount of information you will gather about your opponent’s deck is outstanding. Not only does Spider-Ham help you know their big plays, you are able to copy their weaker tech cards too. This means you already start the game with two answers for their main plays. Here is the deck list:

  • Agent 13 
  • Iceman (or Korg, Yondu)
  • Kitty Pryde
  • Bast
  • Mirage
  • Falcon (or Sera)
  • Spider-Ham (or Angela)
  • The Collector
  • Mysterio
  • Bishop
  • Hit-Monkey
  • Beast

Because Mirage is a 2-cost, you’ll end up probably copying a something along the lines of a 3-cost card. However, card draw is random and you might get lucky and copy a 4 or 5-cost drop. Either way, whatever you are copying gets a nice boost in stats, helping you mirror your opponent but better. The aim of this deck is to bounce, so… bounce! You can bounce Mirage back to your hand and play her again to copy another card. In fact, Mirage is a great way to counter Kitty Pryde users as she will generally almost always be the lowest-cost card in your opponent’s hand.

If you do not own Spider-Ham, feel free to use Angela or Sera. You could also replace Iceman with Korg, Yondu or even fit in a sneaky Carnage and Bucky. Carnage serves as a good counter to a variety of archetypes, therefore he can prove useful. In fact, he can eat any goblins that got sent over to your side, free up space on the board by eating rocks and raptors, or simple eat the fake Mysterio and Bucky. It is a good inclusion that will definitely make the deck more versatile.

Stature Blackbolt – I’m Still Standing

Once kings of the meta, now forgotten heroes. Stature and Blackbolt are both two cards that go hand in hand. This deck is basically a solid and well-rounded list full of different options for you to play. Utilizing Mirage in this deck isn’t necessarily getting the most use out of her, however, it is a welcome addition that still adds versatility to the deck. Personally, I find that shoving new cards into already known, consistent decks is best at first. This is because you get to have a feel for the card and know how it plays in game. Once you play this deck, you’ll have a better understanding of Mirage, leading you to create your own unique deck list.

  • Nightcrawler (Preferably Jeff)
  • Korg
  • Baron Mordo (or Black Widow, Master Mold)
  • Mirage
  • Maximus
  • Mystique
  • Rock Slide
  • Spider-Man
  • Darkhawk
  • Stature
  • Blackbolt
  • Ronan

Replacements, replacements. Despite being a meme, Baron Mordo sees some play in this deck as you can give your opponent rocks in their deck then make them draw a 6-cost rock. However, you can replace him with either Black Widow or Master Mold. Another clear replacement is Jeff in for Nightcrawler. In fact, Jeff would be an even better pick. However, I decided not to include him in order to keep this deck more inclusive as not everyone has Jeff. The goal of this deck is to use Blackbolt to make Stature 1-cost, playing her alongside Ronan on turn 6. You can also move Nightcrawler/Jeff to discount Miles or go the standard Darkhawk route.

After Legion’s release proved to be a surprising success, it is without a doubt that players are excited for Mirage to drop. These were some of the best decks to use Mirage in. Of course, as time progresses and the meta shifts, there will be new deck lists that include Mirage. Experimentation and a lot of gameplay will reveal if this card truly is worth your tokens. If not, then you can get her from a Spotlight Cache alongside Thanos and Master Mold.
