Getting New Cards in Marvel Snap

As with most card games, having a deep card pool is critical in your deckbuilding journey. For the most part, cards are obtained by upgrading existing cards (more on that later) and completing the season pass.

The season pass tree unlocks cards which can be achieved by completing daily missions. These usually fall in the realm of “Play X cards with X cost” or “Win X games”. Simple stuff.
