Marvel Snap is an awesome digital card game that lets you upgrade the rarity of your favorite cards. But what is the highest card rarity in Marvel Snap, and how many materials does it cost?

If you are new to the game, it’s important to understand what we mean by rarity. As you play with cards, you’ll unlock Boosters for it. Boosters are the green cluster currency.

Once you get enough Boosters, the game will prompt you to upgrade the quality of your card using Credits and Boosters.

What is the highest card rarity in Marvel Snap?

The highest rarity in Marvel Snap is Infinity. It’s the seventh rarity type.

This level is unique for multiple reasons, but the main thing to know is that hitting the Infinity level will reward a common duplicate of the card.

But don’t let that fool you, the new Common card has a unique holographic pattern. You can also redo this process multiple times to unlock even more patterns.

Here’s how each card changes visually in Marvel Snap and the order in which you unlock them:

  • Common – The base rarity. Indicated by a grey border
  • Uncommon – Indicated by a green border. No card effects.
  • Rare – Indicated by a blue border. Card gains 3D effects.
  • Epic – Indicated by a purple border. Card gains movement.
  • Legendary – Indicated by a gold border. Namecard gets updated.
  • Ultra – Gains a new animated effect.
  • Infinity – Gains a special holographic pattern.

Personally, we really like the cards once they hit the Epic status.

There’s something about that purple border that really sets the card apart. The same goes for Legendary and above.
