This fiery tree makes flammable combo decks, using Re-Peat Moss or Repeater to win the game in one turn with a flurry of high-Strength Bonus Attacks and Tricks.
Captain Combustible's decks contain Mega-Grow and Kabloom plants. These two types of classes are big stat boosters meaning this hero is meant for boosting his cards. A great strategy is using Re-Peat Moss along with stat boosters, and most notably, Blazing Bark, causing this plant to do many super powerful bonus attacks.
Leading the Mega-Grow and Kabloom classes, these two classes are benificial as the Mega-Grow class enables him to draw more cards, while providing support for aggro cards from the Kabloom class to ensure a steady supply of cards.
However, Captain Combustible has one major disadvantage, which is his lack of Amphibious cards. Because of this, it might not be a good idea to use him in levels where there are more water lanes than normal. Try to make up for it using Berry Blast, Cherry Bomb, or Meteor Strike to destroy the zombies placed in water lanes, plants like Sour Grapes and Kernel Corn to damage them, or Whipvine and Sweet Potato to move them to a designated lane. Also, Captain Combustile has no cards that allow him to instantly destroy zombies. The only method to defeating tough zombies is to boost his own plants and fight fire with fire.
Captain Combustible will prove to be a major threat, as his usage of peas and Torchwoods will mean that he is heavily guarded and will wreak havoc in your defenses, so it is advised to take care of him as quickly as possible. By using powerful zombies, the player should be able to take down Captain Combustible's defenses and defeat him. Re-Peat Moss is one of the infamous strategies for Captain Combustible since he can easily boost it and end the game quickly.
If the player faces off against Captain Combustible in a map with an aquatic lane in it, they can use it to their advantage. Due to Captain Combustible's lack of Amphibious plants, the player can use Amphibious zombies in order to sneak around his defenses and damage him directly. However, focusing on Captain Combustible's plants on land is important too, as they can be boosted easily.
If you are facing a deck where Captain Combustible uses bonus attacks in his favor, use Bonus Track Buckethead to nullify them. If you are playing as The Smash, you could use Vitamin Z, Galvanize or Maniacal Laugh on Bonus Track Buckethead to increase his survivability.
