Quantumania is more than just a movie. Marvel Snap’s February 2023 season, “Into the Quantum Realm,” is Ant-Man-themed, meant to line up with Disney’s Feb. 17 release of the new Ant-Man and the Wasp film.
As with previous Snap seasons, “Into the Quantum Realm” features both a free and premium tier. The latter costs $10 and adds a slew of additional rewards on top of what you’d already earn for free throughout the season. But is it worth it?
How long is the new Marvel Snap season?
Since February is a shorter month, there’s a bit more of a time crunch to complete all of the objectives in this season compared to previous ones. From the start of the season, players will only have three weeks and six days to complete all of the “Into the Quantum Realm” chapters and knock out all 50 levels of the season pass. (For the January 2023 “Savage Land” season, players had five weeks.)
What do you get with the new Marvel Snap season pass?
By sticking with the free season pass, you’ll earn 2,300 credits and 300 gold from completing all 50 ranks. The premium pass will tack on an additional 300 credits and 900 gold to your total seasonal haul. (Gold costs $5 for 300 in Marvel Snap’s microtransaction store. Credits cost 120 gold for 150 credits.)
If you were planning on buying gold anyway, the premium pass is “worth it,” insofar as you’d get $15 of gold for $10 — provided you actually complete the whole pass. You’ll also earn a card back, some avatars and variants, and a ton of card boosters. But the biggest draw of the premium pass is that you’ll instantly add MODOK to your card collection.

Is MODOK good? What are the best MODOK decks?
Though it’s still early in Marvel Snap’s new season, MODOK is theoretically extremely powerful — particularly for discard decks. It’s a 5-cost, 8-energy card. When played, MODOK will discard your entire hand.
It’s natural to think Hela — a 6-cost card who plays all of the cards you’ve discard throughout the match — would be an obvious fit, but such a strategy could prove risky: You’d have to draw Hela on turn six, and no earlier, for it to work. You’re better off focusing on discard decks that feature Morbius, Apocalypse, Wolverine, Swarm, and Helicarrier, since all benefit from MODOK’s effect.
Of course, this early in the season and in the card’s availability, players are still fine-tuning the best strategies for MODOK.
What cards are coming in the new Marvel Snap season?
In addition to MODOK, Marvel Snap’s new season will add the following cards to the series 5 pool:
- Ghost, 1-cost, 2-power: Ongoing ability — your cards are always revealed last, and their on reveal powers happen last. (Added Feb. 14)
- Stature, 5-cost, 7-power: The cost drops to 1 if your opponent discarded a card at any point in the game. (Added Feb. 21)
- Kang, 5-cost, 0-power: Look at what your opponent played, then start your turn over. (Added Feb. 28)
What locations are coming in the new Marvel Snap season?
And, as always, Marvel Snap’s new season will add new locations to the rotation:
- Camp Lehigh: Adds a random 3-cost card to your hand.
- Quantum Tunnel: Playing a card here swaps it with a card in your deck (basically Lockjaw: the Location).
- Quantum Realm: Playing a card here sets it power to 2.
- The Sacred Timeline: If you’re the first player to fill this location, you’ll get a copy of your opening hand.
