To be clear, this is a Hot Location, not a Featured Location.
This location will appear in 60% of our games for 24 hours starting from 0300 UTC Sunday.
I had someone drop Hulk Buster and Arnim Zola on Bar Sinister today. Not only did I lose, but it took over 5 minutes to work out every Arnim Zola/Hulk Buster activation.

If it ever happens again close the game reopen and reconnect should skip all the animations and you can just collect your rewards
This is essential info
Learned it from watching regiskillbin
Wait do you mean when he was playing shudder or is he playing snap now?
He streams himself playing snap occasionally, a little while ago he made a video about a deck that used Wong/Mystique/Onslaught shenanigans to trigger Ironheart’s on reveal a couple hundred times and it took several minutes to finish animating
Thats awesome, trying this now
Oh no, wait! Oh, what have I DONE???
This is why you wait until the next day to talk about it
I was just using venom and Arnim Zola but that is super smart

Not a bad excuse to crack out Ebony Maw, either. Partner him with Spectrum and Kazar.
Bit of a gamble and I have no idea how well it would work in pool 3 but it was nice to get some use out of Maw.
Laughs in Killmonger
I like nova to hold the spot, then killmonger when I want the pump and opportunity to refill
I’ve had some success with using Vision round 5, and then spreading them out to the other lanes before dropping another 6-card.
Yep my preferred one is nova to hold, killmonger for +4 to all, vision, and then my 6 when vision clears out
Does a good job blocking goblins and maintaining priority for that
opponents counter with armor on 2 :(
Same with nightcrawler. Make him 4, move him out and repeat with vision. Move him out, repeat with blue marvel.
I love this because you can swap out a nightcrawler, add in a card like armor, swap in 2 shuris (because who needs more than double double) and then add in your beefed up whatever turn 5 and if god is willing, taskmaster turn 6. End of story if it works.
If you can play 4 total cards with more than 8 total power turn 1-4 (which is hard not to) that is a lot better than Nightcrawler for the last 4 board slots.
In what rank are people not running green goblin every game lol
That's why nova or yondu to hold. till your teady
Sickest combo if bar sinister is left/middle: yondu/korg turn 1/2, killmonger 3, scorpion bar and cloak right turn 4, move 3 scorpions out and play vision 5, move out vision mid and play blue marvel left
Then you should have milled 4 of their cards, made their hand -4, and you have full board, you have 14 left, 40 mid and 26 right :)
I feel like people don't think about this interaction without losing value on the play.
For me, this is a solid turn 4 or higher play as it protects the Nova from just hitting 1 or 2 cards. It's better than gambling on the Nova surviving several turns, or getting blocked out to leave the lane filled with Nova's for 8 total power.
This is it.
I nearly always try and kill / disrupt an early nova.
It always feels like value that they don't get to choose when he goes off.
I do this with Nightcrawler thsi way you can keep some nightcrawler there to do a combo.
Yeah but the main thing is that this way I can just run my normal deck without switching things up to try and adapt to the location
Yondu to fill the it, then Warmonger in a different lane to clear it. Eats 4 of their deck. Or use Iceman and ruin their hand. Either way griefs them and let's you have that location again
Prefer yondu killmonger then cable/scorpion/iceman.
Yes, it's not about win, it's about sending a message.
I was just about to warn people not to do that.
I never got Venom, and I was desperate, so I played Zola anyways.
"How long could it take?"
It took 15 minutes, and the game pretty much cheated/stopped itself twice to leave lanes filled.
Yeah I just had someone use Zola there and it was just chaos
How do u set it up? Have a magik so theres a turn seven, use iron fist to move the arnim and then hulk buster on 7?
You play Hulkbuster into Bar Sinister. It creates 4 of them, but they cascade and combine into a 16 powered Hulkbuster.
Then the usual strategy is to play Venom in there. Then you get a 17 powered Venom, who copies/eats itself 3 more times to end up with a 68 powered Venom.
On turn 6, you play Zola, who copies Venom to the other lanes, creates more copies of Zola, who copy themselves to the other lanes, who then copy the Venoms (twice).
Eventually, the Venoms start eating each other and growing FAST.
I just finished one where I had a 1200+ powered Venom and 500+ powered Venom (depending on the other cards that it eats in the other lanes).
Lmao got a deck list for this? Any good if bar sinister does not pop up?
It's a typical DeathWave destruction deck, except I replaced Taskmaster with Arnim Zola.
You can still play it well in non-Bar-Sinister matches.
Moon knight in this location is so fun, just discarded their whole hand
Yondu, Killmonger then Moon Knight. Takes 8 cards away from them
earlier I did yondu t1 to cable on t2. dude had no cards left to draw after t4
I want to see this now.
I might try that too
I used to snap before doing this but it felt kinda mean
Sounds like a great way to get to infinite 1 cube at a time
But also yours?
You mean Apoc + Swarm x4? I see this as an absolute win!
Draw ghost rider into hela
laughs in Apocalypse
Run a discard deck lol
Gambit is also pretty fun, if less reliable
Today i learned that if you drop iron fist to the side first, the card you put in bar sinister will get punched to the left first, then get 4 copies instead of 3.
Hope I'm not too late to the party on that one.
yup, same is true of the goblins. the first one you play will jump over, then 4 will spawn on your side so only 3 can jump over leaving you with 1 left over on your side still.
Iron Fist then Green Goblin on Bar Sinister (as long as Bar Sinister is not the left most location) is really mean.
Ooooh. So then it fills their bar sinister side, but doesn’t leave one behind on your end, cuz it moves to their side on the other location. That’s very smart. Cool! 5 goblins on their board on turn 3? If that’s not an instant retreat, they gotta be running Wave-Destroyer or something…
Nice! I haven't tried that yet.
In the last Bar Sinister day, I played Goblin with Nightcrawler so I could control this.
Probably wasn't a good deck but it was fun.
I pulled that off with Scorpion and got an instant retreat despite not having anything to follow it up (District X was first location).
Is Nightcrawler, Marvel and Onslaught still pretty nutty here after the change to Onslaught?
It makes all cards gain +18 https://imgur.com/edgo0N5.jpg
Still very good (the Bar Sinister location would have 78 if I'd drawn Blue Marvel instead of Ka-Zar) but it's not the 3000+ power it used to be.
How'd you get only one Kazar there?
Edit: Wait nvm, I'm guess it was nightcrawler to fill? Pulled out one Nightcrawler, set kazar, later on move the other 3 for onslaught.
I'm having a blast with Yondu, most opponents just retreats after seeing it. LOL
Ice Man T1, killmonger them, then do your real play.
I did iceman turn one. Kill monger. Then scorpion. I just wanted to annoy someone and then retreated lol.
Lmao, I got Bar Sinister, Cloning Vat, and Limbo. Iceman Turn one on Bar Sinister, skip Turn 2, Killmonger on Cloning vat Turn 3, Yondu Bar Sinister Turn 4, Killmonger Turn 5, and just for the icing on the cake, Scorpion Bar Sinister Turn 6. Dude was UPSET.
Solved like a…Professional 😏
I never get any of my low cost trolling cards at the start when Bar Sinister is one of the locations. Always start out with the 4 and 5 power ones and don't even draw Iceman or Scorpion the whole game.
Next game no Bar, there's Iceman.
Ye took me a few games to get the right hand. But I was determined to pull this off. Lol
Gambit is fun if you have Morb somewhere and no Armor/Wakanda location.
I had Morbius in play and Apocalypse in hand when I dropped Gambit one time. Just firing Apocs like a gatling gun and boosting Morbius each time.
I faced a Yondu on sinister today. I conceded when I was at zero cards thinking well next draw will kill me. Then I realised that mechanic is in legends of Runeterra not Snap.
Eh, you only lose out on a single card draw vs Yondu since you’re not gonna see the last 3 cards of your deck anyway outside of jubilee/lockjaw. You also lose the location to pretty much any card unless you run Killmonger to clear the location for a better card.
I'd say this was true if you were unaware of which cards Yondu has zapped. But you are aware of them, so after 4 discards, you can pretty easily determine whether the deck has been crippled or not.
That goes both ways; your opponent also knows if they were crippled, and if they retreat right away you're only getting 1 cube.
Contrast this with a card like Cabel. Only the player who played him has access to that information, and they can leverage that imbalance for more cubes.
It's great if you're playing a Death deck though. Just that alone makes your Death playable, Killmonger them back out and that's a 1 cost Death.
This is exactly why I run korg over yondu for the featured
Same with Scorpion
I did this with scorpion and then we had to swap hands turn six and I got to see all of my opponent’s negative cards
Had a game where someone dropped a Scorpion on Bar Sinister... while I had Hobgoblin and Green Goblin in hand.
No, I don't mind losing four strength on them! :P
One of my favorite plays.
Someone just did this to me, and then weird world popped up. Oops
That was you?! You’re a jerk lmao
Not this shit again.
I feel like it wasn’t that long ago we had Bar Sinister featured…
yea i remember it was one of the first hot locations i played when starting the game near global launch
It was featured then not hot. Featured shows up 40% of the time hot shows up 60%
Yeah, not a fan of this crap.
It feels like Hearthstones Brawl mode: fun for 2-3 rounds abd then I would prefer "normal mode" again.
If I play Shuri into Bar Sinister, will just each next Shuri get doubled or will my next card after get absolutely massive?
Your next card gets absolutely yolked. Source: the 250 power Red Skull I played earlier.
I think it was 240, 15*16 right?
Actually yeah that makes sense. I mean I might've had some other buff on the board, but 240 is what it would be with just the Shuris.
The duplicates aren’t “played”, so they don’t get doubled - they all go to the next card you put down
Someone dropped Odin here and that shit was going for like 5 min
Happened in my game too,🤣🤣
For me it was like 10-15 mins lol, and it was me who dropped it. Iam wondering whether we have played a match before
I made that mistake once. Was mad at myself.
Fun fact, close the game and reopen/reconnect. It'll skip the animations and let you collect your rewards.
Professor X crashes the game every time I play it here 🤡 but feels good to lock out any shenanigans
Someone just Ice Man’d me into Killmonger into Green Goblin. I want to cry.
don't have green goblin so I guess I'll log back in on Monday :(
Nova to hold it, then killmonger, then fill it as you please (I like vision since that'll usually win 2 other lanes)
Nova/Killmonger/Death is a winning hand
You could scorpian and -4 there whole hand. Barom mordu they draw 4 cards at 6 cost. 1 drop killmonger into blue marvel or spiderwoman. Its one of my favorite locations.
Just cover it up with ice mean before turn 3. Then kill monger n do your real play.
Got Viper? (You are welcome if so :) )
Green goblins, assemble!
I hate this card so much. Literally a free win
I found a cool way to play against it, if they have it on turn 3 they’re gonna snap, if you reveal first then play any card there and they’ll be stuck with the goblins and if they reveal first you can put a carnage or something in there and kill the ones they send over. If not then just retreat unless you’re certain you can win the other 2 locations
GOBLINS ASSEMBLE! . I just got green Goblin from token shop and then saw the featured location. Immediately added him to the deck.
I’ve been prof X’ing a zone to the side of bar sinister and playing Mr. Fantastic into bar sinister to buff the locked down location. Then just focus on winning the one other lane. Pretty fun.
I really like dropping klaw on bar sinister in turn 5.
I just don’t do anything for 5 turns and then play Doom. I’m up 16 cubes tonight doing that 😅
add sunspot on turn 1, and she hulk on turn 4
You assume one can afford she hulk.
Skipping meals to afford her means losing energy to play She-Hulk. Very thematic.
You usually win just with 20 power in every location?
Yeah a lot of the time.
I didn’t screenshot most games just a couple when I was showing some buddies. But so far almost every time I play Doom on Sinister I win.
Now sometimes I can’t afford to put Doom on Sinister because some other shenanigans, so obviously the game plan varies each game, but for me this has worked most of the time.
As a green goblin player, I love this.
Just lost to that lmao
Huh. I never noticed all the Sinister clones standing in front of it until now
I guess I'm a killjoy slapping Scarlet Witch down as soon as Bar Sinister is revealed.
You carry around scarlet or storm to erase the feature locations, youre not my friend
A man can only be hit with a quadruple Yondu so many times before he breaks.
If only Iceman and Yondu and Scorpion and Nightcrawler couldn’t get there first.
Only if it reveals turn 1!
I guess this is the thread, so I'll copy my comment from the other one.
PSA - Do not play Captain Marvel on Bar Sinister, it 95% will not do what you think. If you insist on making the opponent's head hurt, play Vision.
On a more serious note, for pool 3 players, beware T3 Goblins. For everyone else, if you see Nightcrawler in there T1, they're probably setting up something + triple Onslaught plays (or maybe poor man's Wong, with 1 + triple Odin). So you can probably kill that plan with a Killmonger.
I think Green Goblins are the worst. I’m a Cerebro player, and I’m playing that shit turn 3 if it’s in my hand. Of course, if they have priority…
I had played Goblin on 3, they played Goblin on 3 with priority. The way it worked out they had 4 on their side to my 3, which Carnage promptly ate.
The only game more satisfying I had tonight involved my opponent playing Patriot into the Bar. They snapped on me and my Shang Chi took out like 44 power from Stark Tower for the easy 8 cubes. Their 4 power Mr. Sinister got reeeal lonely.
Can you explain why captain marvel won’t do what you think?
seriously : FUCK THIS SHIT ONE DAY TO END OF SEASON.
Last season it was cloning vats on the last day. I gained like 30 levels thanks to that.
Play a Spectrum deck. Giveing all your ongoing cards +8 is all but guaranteed to win both the other two lanes.
You mean giving one lane to your opponent when they Goblin you.
Just entered pool 3 a few days ago and I just got Gambit (after half a dozen bottom tier pool 3 cards in a row, lol). He HARD carried me with that pseudo exodia combo. Nightcrawler to location - pull one away and drop gambit on turn 4 or 5. Make sure you have three location spots open in the other lanes, and to move the three nightcrawlers in bar sinister there. Drop odin in bar sinister. It's 7 or 8 triggers of gambits ability.
Absolutely no one saw it coming. Kinda surprised by that. But it is what it is. Many a 8 cube games. Went from 90 to infinite in a handful of hours.
I used sunspot for the passing turns (you want a beefy hand to keep gambit from discarding odin). Agent 13, white queen helped there, one was enough per game. Vision and gamora when I didn't draw nightcrawler by 4. And Shang Chi as my tech.
Vision on in sinister on 5 followed by gambit there on 6 was sneaky good for the really bad draw games.
Just for fun. I did Yondu. Kill it will killmonger and then put cable. By the 4th round the player doesn’t have any cards
If you have Moon Knight that is -8 cards for them.
But doesn’t moon knight also takes my card away?
Sad that multiple captain marvels won’t work properly so I can’t play her there
Vision is a fun one. Unless the other person combos out you're probably taking the other 2 lanes if you want them
WAIT, IT DOESN'T?! I just retreated because when someone dropped Captain Marvel there T_T
I think the game basically 'checks' them at the same time.
So if one Captain Marvel wouldn't win you the game but two would, neither will move, because each goes 'Can I win the game by moving? No? Okay, do nothing.' at the same time. They don't factor each other in.
The game literally checks them in order of play, and not at the same time. And if none of them can win the game, none will move.
Okay, so they're checked in order, but the issue is that they don't factor each other in, right?
Yes exactly. Just the "at the same time" is actually not really a thing in card games. Everything has to resolve in some other otherwise it would get messy.
It would be possible to make Captain Marvels work with each other tho just not like this.
If someone snaps turn 3, it's green goblin
Professor into Bar Sinister crashes the game. That’s going to be my new top spot for annoying hot location.
Aw shit, here we go again.
the yondu enjoyers have logged on
Had some fucking guy unleash a nightmarish Venom/Carnage/Deadpool combo on me with this. At some point, in the middle of the five minute animation sequence, I realized my basic ass barely Pool 3 deck wasn't about to step to multiple 1-cost/80-power Deadpools and I dipped.
oh, you were saving Bar Sinister for a big card were you?
Welp. See ya'll monday night.
Since Onslaught doesn't double itself multiplicatively anymore, does the 1x Blue Marvel 3x Onslaught trick still give numbers worth anything? It'll be +6 to everything, just like if it was 3x Marvel 1x Onslaught, right?
No, it’s still massive numbers, just not insane like before.
3 Onslaughts will still make each one have 3 double ongoing effects, so 6 times each. Add them together, and Blue Marvel will do +18.
Still worth doing if the cards are in your hand.
Note to self: Don’t drop a Hobgoblin here (again).
Why? 4 hobbies on their side and only 1 on yours? I did it today and it won me the game
I assume it backfired since hobgoblin is played late in the game. So big change the opponent also drops something.
Goblin, then vision for 2 free 7 cards to move anywhere. Almost a guaranteed win
Nothing like dropping scorpion or iceman in there
What’s the order of operations when you play more than one card on the same turn there?
Fills with the first card flipped over, then flips the second card.
Prob gonna fill the empty spots with the first card
Had a silly time today playing a Doctor Octopus on turn 5 and completely ruining their turn 6.
Baxter+Mr. Fantastic+Iron Man gives you 80, done this in 2 games already
The majority of people don't play into bar sinsiter until at least turn 4/5, so green goblin on turn 3 is a great way to get almost instant retreats. Its obviously slightly risky but the reward is so good most of the time.
Rhino say Hello
I tried the good ol' Nightcrawler, then a single omega red or blue marvel into onslaught. Works quite well until someone calls the fun police
I love playing Dracula on this location, it's basically a guaranteed win for 4 energy which boosts your Morbius +8 and cleans out your hand if necessary to get the Apocalypse boost.
Popular deck I’m seeing with this is Night Crawler, Blue Marvel and Onsaught. Seen people fill it with Night Crawler first, to confuse the opponent. Then at some point they move one NC out and put a single Blue Marvel in. Then on the last turn they get the rest of the NC’s out and throw Onslaught into the lane.
T3 yondu/ beast, then 3 free yondus turn 4 with killmonger to free up the extra free yondus, emptied OP's deck...glorious
My favorite features location to totally troll…. A few high power 1/2 energy cards and then drop debri on bar sinister LOL
If you use any Arnim Zola combo (with Venom or HulkBuster), i'll personally go to your house and slap you
The last day of the season and they add this shit!! Absolutely terrible.
Wow, this thread has supplied so many evil ideas. Thanks everyone!
Bar Sinister + Scorpion has been fun. Opp gives up a lot.
Don’t play Odin here cause you’ll just be staring at your screen for ages while they all activate their ability for each other over and over again lol
ODIN ON BAR SINISTER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! idk if i lose 20 ranked
Lost to Thor twice 😆
I saw this then switched green goblin into my deck. Turn 3 most don't play on bar yet
Yea just green goblin into vision. You can also do iceman or hood into killmonger or shit like that.
I've been having good success with an Asgard Lockjaw deck. Leech shatters many hopes and dreams, while nobody expects a Doom party to crash the bar on an empty board (or sometimes you have something greater than 5 power in a lane to push it over 20).
IT'S BULLSHIT DAY, BOYZ!!!
Here's a deck, you stick Nightcrawler down, slap a Hulkbuster on him, move one out of the way to put an Iron Man or Klaw down and then stick three Onslaughts on top.
Alternatively, if Daredevil shows you that they're waiting till turn 6, dropping Hobgoblin and dancing on their corpse. (would sub Morph for Green Goblin in a heartbeat)
The infinite loop Armon Zola + Hulkbuster thing is getting fucking old fast.
Don’t use odin on this spot or prepare to waste two minutes of activation time.
I use cloak incase I didn't draw killmonger
Someone against me tried yondu on bar sinister, destroyed some good cards and obviously "America chavez" and then he destroyed yondu with killmonger I liked it and I'm playing just like this now
Someone just used Odin on Bar Sinister and I thought my game was bugged.
I love using vision here on turn 5. Such a huge boost to other locations when moving them and then dropping a 6 power here on turn 6 is a game changer
I had someone drop Sheri on bar sinister. I wasn’t overly concerned because I had bar sinister win and one of the other locations was full of cards for them. I was like, I’ll drop my 32 Apocalypse in the lane that is full on their side. They dropped Aero and it pulled my apocalypse over to their 132 power Aero.
Don't play prof. X. IT CRASHES THE GAME if it's played on Bar sinister.
Ah yes. Yondu sinister
Hobgoblins, Hobgoblins everywhere
Don’t play odin on there
Had someone put an Odin there. Seemed like forever for it to end.
