After his recent buff, Sandman has gone from a seldom-played card to a true threat in the Marvel Snap metagame. For those unaware, Sandman was once a four-cost one-power card that restricted players from playing multiple cards per turn. As you can imagine, playing a measly one power on the game's fourth turn felt terrible, despite Sandman's powerful effect. Now, however, Sandman is a five-cost five-power card with the same effect. This opens up tons of new deck possibilities for Sandman and is what we will cover here!
This article will cover the best Sandman decks in Marvel Snap that you can use to reach Infinite rank, including deck lists, strategies, and more.
Best Sandman Decks In Marvel Snap
The best Sandman decks in Marvel Snap are those that can take advantage of the card's mutual effect. When Sandman is in play, both players can only play one card per turn. Therefore, it is important that the card you choose to play will always be more powerful than your opponent's. Sandman excels in decks with lots of powerful cards or control decks looking to lock down certain locations.
Electro Ramp Deck
Sandman had seen play in Electro Ramp decks before his buff but was only ever a good option if you managed to play him on turn three or were already in a winning position. Now you can effectively lock down your opponent's turn five and turn six plays while not giving up the tempo by playing Sandman.

Destroyer Ongoing Deck
Sandman also saw regular play in the Destroyer + Spectrum Ongoing deck archetype. This deck usually only wants to be playing one card per turn, so it makes sense to include a card like Sandman to lock down your opponent's options as well. Players will want to dominate one or two locations with powerful offensive cards like Warpath, Iron Man, and eventually Professor X. Then, you can win the game with either Spectrum or Destroyer to finish things off.
Sandman is a great inclusion to this deck now that his stats can provide a benefit to the locations you are trying to win.
