Strategies

With

Cattail is meant to be one of those plants that have average stats, cost, and no ability. She 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 she is now immune to Rolling Stone or Weed Spray. Because of this, almost all Amphibious zombies 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 her with Fertilize, Embiggen, etc. Since she has the Amphibious trait, you can also boost her with Navy Bean to make her much more powerful. This opens it up to being destroyed by Rocket Science, however.

Against

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

Signature superpowers can also help. The Smash can use Slammin' Smackdown to get rid of Cattail. Neptuna can use Octo-pult on the lane occupied by Cattail. Impfinity's Triple Threat has a chance of hitting Cattail. Rustbolt can use Shrink Ray to lower her strength to 0. Electric Boogaloo can destroy her with Stayin' Alive and heal the damage she did to him.

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