Best Maximus Decks In Marvel Snap
The best Maximus decks in Marvel Snap are those that need to win locations early to gain priority, those that can negate his effect somehow, or those that actively want your opponent's hand to be full (to prevent them from drawing more or to activate abilities like Ronan, The Accuser).
Maximus is a very versatile card and, while never a primary win condition, is a solid option in most cases with not much replacement. Very few cards in Marvel Snap provide such high power for such a low cost, and saving Maximus for the end of the game is another great strategy to avoid his downside.
Silver Surfer Deck
Despite being nerfed, it would be remiss not to discuss Silver Surfer decks - the archetype which arguably catapulted Maximus into popularity. Maximus is great in any kind of Silver Surfer engine, usually being saved for the final turn to avoid the drawback while still providing you with seven power to be buffed.

This deck runs several counters cards, such as Shang-Chi, Enchantress, and Killmonger in order to stamp out your opponent's game plan.
