The first new spotlight cache card of the Hellfire Gala season in Second Dinner’s superhero CCG is nearly here, with Marvel Snap’s Blob ready to make a meal of the current meta. While this antagonist might not look as threatening as Destroyer of Knull, its powerful effect isn’t only a game changer, unleashing the full power of your deck in one fell swoop.
Arriving in Marvel Snap as a six-cost four-power card, the Blobs effect reads as “On Reveal: Merge your deck into this. (and gain its total power) Ongoing: Can’t be moved.” As a new series five card, you can either opt to spend 6,000 collector’s tokens on guaranteeing yourself a copy of this X-Men villain or take your chances picking it up via the spotlight cache system. Joining Blob in this week’s spotlight cache possibilities are Ravonna Renslayer and The Living Tribunal, as well as the mystery random series four or five card.
In terms of style of play, there are a few options for Blob. One of his best uses is as a Darkhawk counter, taking all of the cards out of your deck on the final turn and reducing Darkhawk to 0 power. There are some already popular Marvel Snap decks that Blob fits perfectly into, such as Shuri Red Skull builds, with the villain potentially picking up the power of Red Skull and Typhoid Mary without the negative effects, and Hela Discard decks also a possible option, with Blob picking up The Infinaut’s 20 power if the space giant is still in your deck on turn six.
