The synergy between Heroes is definitely the most important thing in Marvel Strike Force. In Blue Moon Game MSF Tier Lists, we tried to help you in deciding what heroes to farm first, but soon we realized that the quality of the single Hero can’t be measured unless we put the whole team into the equation. That’s why we decided to make Tier Lists for Marvel Strike Force Best Teams.
Also, until now Blue Moon Game in our Tier Lists tried to present teams and Heroes which are best for free to play players but in this list, we will have to rank teams regarding on Heroes availability. We divided Best Teams Tier List into 3 categories – Arena Offense/Blitz/Alliance War, Alliance War Defense, and Raid Tier List. Teams will be ranked by the position which means that team on position 1 is the best, on position 2 second best, etc..
However, all of the mentioned teams have their counters and we will suggest those teams to you. Blue Moon Game is gladly accepting all feedbacks from the MSF community and every constructive critic or suggestion is most welcome!
Update 3.5: We added the Fantastic Four team to the Offense List and introduced Agent Coulson on the Defense List.
Update 3.7: We completely changed the Best Team Tier List and added Alliance War Defense Tier List instead Arena Defense. This Page is now up to date!

When Black Bolt and Yo-Yo become available for farming, the Inhuman/S.H.I.E.L.D. team with the help of Phoenix will be definitely the team who can deal with anything on the opposite side. This is still a theory-craft but according to the skill description Yo-Yo and Black Bolt will change the game balance, because Ultron will become obsolete. After the introduction of Crystal this team becomes even more stronger. Quake could be changed with Karnak but i doubt that lot of players will have Karnak stronger than Quake, at least for now.
Custom Sure-to-Win team is the team that proved capable of defeating any other team in Arena or Alliance War. The trick is that when you face Ultron on the opposite side you use special skill that applies Disrupt with Magneto instead of mass blind. Because of Disrupt Phoenix will not be able to apply Stealth on Ultron making him vulnerable to Ability Block from Vision, When you cast Ability Block, Ultron will not summon minions and therefore he will not receive buffs and ability energy which means that you will win the battle for sure. This team can beat any other combination in Marvel Strike Force except Inhuman/Phoenix combination.
Full X-Men team is on the third place for known and obvious reasons.
Ultron team is made with just one purpose – to maximize Ultron potential and to protect him. Drax has Taunt on the start meaning that Ultron will be safe from Ability Block and early nuke. Korath and Captain Marvel duo enables you to assassinate chosen target before enemy start playing and Mordo is a decent debuffer who heals himself when someone dies (including summons) which is ideal for this team. There are a lot of useful team combinations with Ultron but we chosen this one since it uses some Heroes who have not any obvious synergy with other Meta teams (Korath, Mordo) which could be essential if you can’t find appropriate team for Ultron in Alliance War or Blitz.
Fantastic Four team has a great offensive potential. Problem with this team is difficulty to farm shards for Human Torch, Mister Fantastic, Thing and Namor.
Supernatural and reworked AIM team are extremely dangerous in both offense and defense. Those teams are relatively easy to assemble and very useful in every game segment.
New Power Armor team proved to be an ideal solution for beating other Meta teams but this team is usable only in offence. Rescue can now apply Offense Up in the second turn on Power Armor allies making thier AOE devastating.
We also presented a customized Ms.Marvel/Defender team because this team proved to be more efficient in the offense than original Defenders. We have 2 versions of the TECH team and while War Machine has better potential than Crossbones, very few people actually have War Machine at higher rank than Crossbones. Besides that, War Machine cannot be combined with anyone who could provide him Offense Up (except Rescue) before the second turn of combat.
In the end, we have Spider-Verse team and Wakanda team – those teams are another sure-to-win-T8-Blitz teams who could also be a real menace in the Arena against teams with similar power. After the releasing of Vulture, the Sinister Six team is complete and ready to take their place on our list.
Other teams that are on list are widely known for its usefulness, therefore we thought that there is no need to describe their role and position.
Alliance War Defense
ms. marvel - brawler team
Alliance War Defense teams are made with the idea to maximize difficulty of your rooms in AW and to keep enough Heroes for Offense. These teams have special bonuses in AW Defense and they are specialized for this segment of the game. Teams with Ultron will definitely keep enemies at bay for some time but it is discutable if Ultron should remain in defense or he should be used in Offense.
Keep in mind that power of your Defense Team greatly determine the number of attacks you will suffer. For some unknown reason, most of the players still attack the available team with the lowest power, so don’t hesitate to change some Heroes if you have other Heroes with the higher power. In the end, there will always be a counter team who can beat your defense with ease.

Ultron is THE best character in the game (for Raids) and he can be combined with every RAID team. Minn-Erva is another character who can improve every raid team because her healing is superior to any other support character in the game. Each of these teams should help you to clear several Raid nodes without haling. Some nodes need specialized teams and Heroes (like Storm) to be cleared without loses. Be sure to learn enemies from each node before deciding which team to lead in battle. For successful participation in Ultimus 6 Raid, you will need at least 2 of those teams.
