We've got a new featured location in MARVEL SNAP and it's Vibranium Mines!
Vibranium Mines is a completely new location being added to MARVEL SNAP as part of the November Season: Warriors of Wakanda. When you play a card there, it shuffles three Vibranium into your deck (1 Cost, 4 Power; "Ongoing: Can't be destroyed").
This makes Vibranium Mines sound a lot like Lechuguilla, in that they both shuffle three 1-Cost tokens into your deck. The main difference is that Vibranium is a lot better than your average 1-Drop, and could be useful in a deck like Ka-Zar Zoo that can buff 1-Cost tokens even more - also because it dodges Killmonger, the one great enemy of Zoo. With it's Ongoing effect, Vibranium can even carry a buff from Spectrum. Or, you can play Onslaught and double its Ongoing effect to, "Can't not be destroyed." (JOKE ALERT)
However you choose to plan for the new location, you'd better get used to it; being a featured location means that Vibranium Mines will have a 40% chance to appear for 48 hours, from 7 PM PT Tuesday night to 7 PM PT Thursday night (2 AM UTC Wednesday to 2 AM UTC Friday).
What Are Featured Locations in MARVEL SNAP?
There are two different types of location events in MARVEL SNAP.
- Sunday's Hot Location that has a 60% chance to appear for the next 24 hours.
- Wednesday's Featured Location that has a 40% chance to appear for the next 48 hours.
This helps pave way for new deckbuilding strategies as you may want to be playing something else should the bonus better benefit cards you aren't playing with. We've seen this previously with the featured location, Monster Island, whose boosted appearances meant many players ran Shang-Chi to destroy the 9 Power Monster.
As announced in the developer livestream, MARVEL SNAP will be getting a brand new location every week and it will be featured when it is added, as we're seeing now with Vibranium Mines.
