Despite being weak, this card allows you to freeze and attack zombie cards, which can help if used correctly, as it gives a chance to kill a card at the same while they are completely vulnerable. You may choose Tennis Champ, as it will freeze it and let a plant card damage it without that plant getting damaged. A Chilly Pepper should be able to destroy a Toxic Waste Imp while it is frozen without the Deadly ability being activated, as well as removing the caused Deadly effect from Imps.
Using Rescue Radish with this card is a good combination, as it will allow you play this card once more to freeze another zombie.
Due to the low amount of health it has, the player should have no difficulties in defeating it, by Tricks such as Nibble, or with almost every zombie card. If there is a zombie card which you want to keep on the field longer, is about be destroyed from being frozen and damaged, simply heal it with tricks such as Vitamin Z, where it should be able to survive the attack in order to continue being present after being defrosted.
