Card description

Spent six years perfecting his art at the Chewliard School for the Performing Arts.

Update history

Update 1.2.11

  • Backup Dancer can now be played as a card, and is now the basic zombie of the PvZH Crazy IconCrazy class.

Strategies

With

Just like any basic 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH zombie, Backup Dancer usually does not survive for long. However, Aerobics Instructor can turn him into basically a Disco Zombie without his ability, while playing Flamenco Zombie after spamming Backup Dancers is a cheap way to hurt your opponent for quite a lot. But even then, Backup Dancer is still left with 1 health unless a health-boosting trick like Monster Mash or Camel Crossing is played.

Against

Because of his dancing tribe, you should watch out if your opponent suddenly fills the lanes with Backup Dancers, because it is only a matter of time until Flamenco Zombie or Aerobics Instructor comes into play. However, it should not be hard to deal with them, since they only have 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH unless Aerobics Instructor boosts them. But even then, Sour Grapes can still easily wipe all of them out.
