5 cards to use in your deck for Marvel SNAP’s Featured Location, Collapsed Mine

The new Featured Location in Marvel SNAP’s  The Savage Land season is Collapsed Mine. Featured Locations, for those unaware, typically change over on Tuesdays and make a specific location more likely to appear. They are usually worth some deck adjustments if you’re looking to win some matches.

Let’s take a look at some great cards to use in your deck while Collapsed Mine is the Featured Location, though all of these cards will work to your benefit whenever you encounter the Collapsed Mine Location in the future.

What is the Collapsed Mine in Marvel lore? What’s the key to winning when the Collapsed Mine is up?

Somewhere up in Eternity Range, there’s a mine, and it’s collapsed. Maybe you access it via a Rickety Bridge. Like some of the other Locations from Savage Land season, this one isn’t exactly iconic. While there are several collapsed mines in various hero origin stories like Cannonball and Rockman, there are none that I could find within the Savage Lands.

In Marvel SNAP, the Collapsed Mine adds tokens to the board. On the turn that Collapsed Mine is revealed, the entire Location fills with 1-Energy, 0-Power Rocks. If you skip your turn, a giant pickaxe appears and destroys the Rocks, opening up the four card slots at that Location. This player specific. If you skip your turn (by not playing any cards), but your opponent doesn’t skip their turn, then your side of Collapsed Mine will clear of Rocks while your opponent’s Rocks will remain.

Great cards to use on Collapsed Mine


Since the Rocks are 1-Power cards, they are vulnerable to Eric Killmonger. Playing Killmonger allows you to clear the Rocks from both sides of Collapsed Mine without having to skip your turn. He’s great to play if your opponent was looking to use a buff strategy like Patriot (which is outlined below).


The need to skip a turn plays well with Sunspot. He will absorb all that unused Energy and turn it into Power. Sunspot pairs well The Infinaut (If you played a card last turn, you can’t play this). Just wait until turn five to skip your turn, clear your Rocks and set up a huge play on turn six. The downside to The Infinaut is it is a fairly telegraphed strategy which may limit its cube gain. She-Hulk (Costs 1 less for each unspent Energy last turn) is another great card that benefits from skipping turns.


There are eight total Rocks between you and your opponent. If they all get destroyed, it makes Death cost 1-Energy. If you can destroy just one more card, she’s free.


Instead of getting rid of the Rocks, use them to your advantage. Patriot, along with Kazar (Your 1-Cost cards have +1 Power), Blue Marvel (Ongoing: Your other cards have +1 Power), and Onslaught (Ongoing: Double your other Ongoing effects at this location) can make your Rocks competitive with many anything other decks out can throw at you.

Just not Killmonger. That guy will ruin your day.


The Armor play is a high risk/high reward strategy. The way this works is once Collapsed Mine reveals, you skip your turn. Your Rocks gets destroyed. What you’re counting on is your opponent didn’t clear their Rocks. Maybe they needed to play a card that turn, or maybe they are waiting until turn five to destroy their Rocks because they are playing a Sunspot/Infinaut/She-Hulk deck. The why isn’t important. What is important is your Rocks are gone, but their Rocks aren’t. Play by Armor on Collapsed Mine. Now those Rocks are stuck there whether your opponent skips a turn or not.

What are your ideas?

Collapsed Mine is yet another Death and destroy synergy Location. It feels like we’ve gotten quite a few of those, but at least the play patterns should be familiar. Whether it is in your Location pool due to the event, or just one of the randomly chosen ones after the event, hopefully these cards and tips help you win!

Keep in mind that even as the Featured Location, there will still be matches that you don’t see Collapsed Mine. Make sure your deck is flexible enough that you don’t have to retreat if you don’t get Collapsed Mine in your Location pool.
