The last new card of the Guardians Greatest Hits season is arriving today, with Marvel Snap’s Living Tribunal bringing some serious strength into one of our favorite Marvel games. As you expect from a galactic powerhouse like the Living Tribunal, the omnipotent being’s effect makes it a top-tier surprise card, landing at the end of the game to split power among your locations.
For those that don’t know, Living Tribunal’s effect reads ‘ongoing: split your total power evenly among all locations’, offering an ability unique to this god-level character. Sure, it’s a situationally dependent effect, but combine it with cards like Iron Man, who doubles power at a single location, or Professor X, who locks an opponent out of a specific location, and there’s plenty of space for meta movers and shakers.
While Living Tribunal’s own power ranking isn’t that impressive, landing in the game as a six-cost six-power card, this sharing effect is one that is hard to counter unless you know it’s coming. Even Enchantress, known for her ability to shut down ongoing cards, has a hard time taking on Living Tribunal, requiring you to play her on the exact lane your opponent plays Living Tribunal in turn six while revealing first. So, just like in the comics, there’s no way of escaping the grasp of this galactic threat. Well, except Galactus.
