Marvel Snap: Beginner Card Pool Compendium

When you first start Marvel Snap, you initially play against bots in an extended beginner tutorial period that runs from Collection level 1 through 18. As you progress through the Collection 1 through 18, you'll unlock the following cards in the following order:

Marvel Snap: Card Pool 1 (Series 1) Compendium

Once you hit Collection Level 18 in Marvel Snap, you'll start to unlock cards in Card Pool 1 (also known as "Series 1"), which consists of 46 cards and runs through Level 214 (at which point, you'll have unlocked all the cards in Card Pool 1 and will start unlocking cards in Card Pool 2)

Except for the Recruit Pool (Level 1 to 18), the cards in each Card Pool are distributed randomly, which means you might not get the card you want until you get to the higher levels of the Pool. For the most part, you can only get cards from raising your Collection Level although there are a few cards you can get from the monthly Seasons.

Here's a full list of cards available in Marvel Snap Card Pool 1 in alphabetical order (complete with their stats and abilities):

Reference: Hearthstone Mercenaries - Alliance Character List

As there's (currently) no visual representation on the cards of Hearthstone Mercenaries to indicate whether a character belongs to the Alliance faction, I put together a list of Hearthstone Mercenary Alliance Characters for reference when you're planning an Alliance team in hopes of getting Alliance buff treasures.

Generally, the following races belong to the Alliance: Humans, Dwarves, Night Elves, Gnomes, and Draenei. A notable exception is the Lich King, a Human that counts as part of the Horde. There are also neutral races (Beasts, Dragons, Elementals, Murlocs, and Pirates) that don't belong to either faction.

Here's a current list:
