Best Sauron Decks In Marvel Snap (September 2023)

Sauron is a three-cost three-power card in Marvel Snap with an On Reveal ability that will remove all the Ongoing effects from all cards in your hand and deck. At first glance, this seems like a detrimental effect. After all, why would a player intentionally remove the abilities from their cards? However, there are several cards in Marvel Snap with inflated stat lines and detrimental abilities to offset those powerful stats. So, by removing the ability from these cards, players can take advantage of their huge power with no downside!

So, if you are ready to start using Sauron in Marvel Snap, you've come to the right place. This article will cover the best Sauron decks in Marvel Snap, including deck lists, strategies, and more!

Best Sauron Decks In Marvel Snap

The best Sauron decks in Marvel Snap are those that play several cards with detrimental Ongoing abilities. Unfortunately, Sauron doesn't really see much play outside of this niche archetype. Even during the heyday of Shuri and Red Skull, the Sauron version of this archetype was considered to be several tiers below the most optimal version. That being said, Sauron does its job well in this deck. 

Sauron Deck

Sauron is the name of the card, the name of the deck, and the name of the game! Players will want to fill their Sauron deck with as many cards as possible that have negative Ongoing abilities. The win condition is to simply overwhelm your opponent by playing huge cards that would normally be easy to take advantage of. However, thanks to Sauron, it is possible to play these cards with no drawbacks!

Patriot Deck 

Sauron really only fits into one archetype, and that is the above Ongoing removal archetype with inflated minions. However, a fun deck to try out involves using Sauron to remove the abilities from all of your cards and then buffing up your now textless cards with Patriot! This deck is definitely not at the top of the meta and requires a lot of workarounds. In most cases, you would be better off just playing a regular Patriot deck. However, sometimes it's fun to style on your opponents, and this is certainly one way to show them who the better play is!
