Marvel Snap: No Ability Patriot Deck Tier List

Despite focusing on cards without powers, the Patriot deck is one of the most powerful in the meta. Here's what you need to make it work.

If you find yourself getting crushed out of nowhere by seemingly weak cards, you might be running into the No Ability decks that are all the rage in Marvel Snap. Specifically, the Patriot Deck has been rampaging and is one of the current most dominant decks in the meta. To help you, we've put together a No Ability deck tier list to highlight the best card available now. 

The Patriot No Ability Deck includes Patriot and other cards that boost the power of cards without abilities. Playing these five cards in a deck filled with No Ability cards will make you nearly unstoppable in Marvel Snap. Along with low-cost cards like Squirrel Girl, Wasp, Cyclops, and Brood, these cards are essential for a No Ability deck build. 

S-Tier Cards


  • Collection: Pool 3
  • Ability: Ongoing: Your cards with no abilities have +2 Power.

Patriot is your lynchpin in this deck. The entire strategy revolves around using Patriot to power up your cards that don't have abilities, and then using other cards to multiply the amount of extra power Patriot grants. 


  • Collection: Pool 3
  • Ability: On Reveal: If the last card you played has an Ongoing ability, this card gains it.

One of the ways to quickly double the amount of power you are giving your No Ability cards is by playing Mystique right after Patriot. This will essentially turn Mystique into a duplicate of Patriot. 


  • Collection: Pool 3
  • Ability: On Reveal: Create four 1-Power Drones at each other location.

Keep your board as empty as you can, but make sure to have Patriot, Mystique, and Kazar down. From there, you can play Ultron on your final turn. This will fill your side with 1-power drones, none of which have abilities.

They will each, in turn, be powered up by the other cards you have down, instantly giving you a drone force to be reckoned with and no time for your opponent to retaliate. 

A-Tier Cards


  • Collection: Pool 1
  • Ability: Ongoing: Double your other Ongoing effects at this location.

If you can't draw Ultron, Onslaught is another excellent 6-cost option for this deck. By playing Onslaught at the same location as Patriot, you'll double the effect of the card. If Ka-zar is also at this location, you're in for a huge boost for your No Ability army. 


  • Collection: Pool 1
  • Ability: Ongoing: Your 1-Cost cards have +1 Power.

Ka-zar is pretty important if you are playing Patriot and Ultron. Playing this card before spawning Ultron's drones will give them all more power. In conjunction with Onslaught or Mystique, this is just one of the ways to win with a No Ability deck. 

Those are the best cards ranked in a tier list for the No Ability Patriot deck in Marvel Snap. For more deck tier lists and tips on the Marvel Snap meta, we've got you covered here in our guides hub.
