We've got a featured location in MARVEL SNAP and it's Grand Central!
Grand Central is an existing location being featured in MARVEL SNAP as part of the May Season: Guardians Greatest Hits. After turn 5, a random card from each player's hand is pulled to an empty spot there.
Grand Central is the perfect chance to run a lot of large and expensive cards like The Infinaut and let the game play them for free. If you can play on curve while isolating your largest threats for a free post-turn 5, you could be sitting pretty with this hot location.
However you choose to plan for the featured location, you'd better get used to it; being a featured location means that Grand Central will have a 50% chance to appear for 24 hours, from 8 PM PT Tuesday night to 8 PM PT Wednesday night (2 AM UTC Wednesday to 2 AM UTC Thursday).
What Are Featured Locations in MARVEL SNAP?
There are two different types of location events in MARVEL SNAP, both of which have a 50% chance of appearing for the next 24 hours.
- Sunday's Hot Location that always pulls from existing locations.
- Wednesday's Featured Location that usually shows off new locations, but will pull from the pool of existing locations from time to time.
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.
Hot Decks for Grand Central
If you're looking for ideas of what decks you can play to the Featured Location, we've got you covered: with recommended decks for players just starting out in Series 1, players still moving up through Series 2, and players who are starting to fill their collections with cards from Series 3, 4, and 5.
Series 1 Hulk Zoo
For Series 1, we've gone with the old staple, Zoo, with a twist: we're running big body Hulk and hoping to isolate it in our hand for a powerful arrival at Grand Central Station.
Series 2 Jubilee
This Series 2 deck goes more all-in, with plenty of large cards to cheat into play with either Jubilee or the featured location.
Series 3 Dracula Dump
We're back to attempting to game the system with a deck that runs The Infinaut and She-Hulk, either of which can either be pulled into play at the featured location or discarded by Dracula at the end of the game.
Series 3 Lockjaw
Like the Series 2 deck, this deck is trying to cheat big bodies into play however possible, using Lockjaw to swap small things for big things.
Series 3 Ramp
Finally, we have a deck that Ramps into large things with either Electro or Wave, and thus will be very happy to see something get put into play for free by Grand Central.

'Cards there can't be destroyed' in the 1st paragraph seems off. :D
