Captain Combustible contains Mega-Grow and Kabloom cards. These two types of cards 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.
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, or use plants like Sour Grapes and Kernel Corn to damage them, or Whipvine and Sweet Potato to move them to a designated lane.
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 such as Gargantuars and zombies with large strength and the Deadly trait, the player should be able to take down Captain Combustible's defenses and defeat him.
If the player faces off against Captain Combustible in a map with a lane of water in it, they can use the water 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 buffed easily.
