The Rise of the Phoenix season is really kicking into gear, with Marvel Snap’s Echo joining the roster of heroes and villains in the CCG. Echo’s addition to the roster of Marvel Snap cards is good news for Daredevil fans wanting to build a themed deck, but not for those with a penchant for ongoing effects.
Echo arrives in Marvel Snap as a one-cost two-power card, with her effect reading ‘After your opponent plays an ongoing card here, remove its abilities.’ While that leaves few combo cards in your own deck, it does make Echo a perfect answer to someone planning on playing cards like Blue Marvel, Iron Man, or Armor, who all rely on ongoing effects for various win conditions.
There is a caveat in Echo’s effect in that it can work against you if facing off against either Red Skull or Typhoid Mary, denying yourself the power boost from either. Unlike Enchantress, it also doesn’t hit your own ongoing cards, so don’t try and match up Echo with villains like Ebony Maw and Lizard as there’s no benefit.
