Strategies

With

Cattail is meant to be one of those plants that have balanced stats, cost, and no special ability. It is similar to Fire Peashooter, but with slightly greater cost and the Amphibious trait, as well as the lack of pea tribe synergy, which means that Cattail cannot be boosted by Torchwood or The Podfather.

After the swap on strength and health, Cattail can now easily be destroyed by Snorkel Zombie or Bungee Plumber, but it is now immune to Rolling Stone or Weed Spray. Because of this, almost all Amphibious zombies except Swabbie can destroy Cattail in one hit, so try to boost or protect Cattail if possible. However, if there is no sign of Amphibious zombies, Cattail can become a useful plant in the aquatic lane, especially with Green Shadow who can boost it with Fertilize, Embiggen, etc. Since it has the Amphibious trait, you can also boost it with Navy Bean to make it much more powerful. This opens it up to being destroyed by Rocket Science, however.

Against

Cattail doesn't have much health, so it can be easily taken care of by any Amphibious zombie except Swabbie or any damaging trick. However, it hits hard for its cost and has the Amphibious trait, which means that it can whittle on your health quite a bit if you are not prepared. It also cannot be destroyed by Rolling Stone, Weed Spray, or Rocket Science if its strength is kept at 3, so you can either use a strength-lowering card or wait for Green Shadow or Nightcap to give it a strength boost.

Signature superpowers can also help. The Smash can use Slammin' Smackdown to get rid of it. Neptuna can use Octo-pult on the lane occupied by Cattail. Z-Mech's Missile Madness and Impfinity's Triple Threat have a chance of hitting Cattail. Rustbolt can use Shrink Ray to lower its strength to 0. Super Brainz can move a zombie with at least 2 strength with Carried Away to destroy it. Electric Boogaloo can destroy it with Stayin' Alive and heal off the damage it did to him. Finally, Immorticia can also destroy it with Zom-Bats made by Witch's Familiar unless Cattail is on an aquatic lane.

However, most classes should have ways of dealing with Cattail anyway. The PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky and PvZH Beastly IconBeastly classes can use Amphibious zombies, the PvZH Crazy IconCrazy class has access to Bungee Plumber and other damaging tricks, and the PvZH Hearty IconHearty class can move it out of the aquatic lane. The PvZH Brainy IconBrainy class, however, has no direct method of getting rid of Cattail unless it has been boosted, but it is a minor problem since it is paired with other classes anyway.
