Cosmic Bean has low stats for its cost, but it is cheap and benefits bean decks a lot for not only being a bean, but also Conjuring another bean to synergize with Bean Counter or Admiral Navy Bean. You can even get strong beans from other classes such as Black-Eyed Pea, Moonbean, Laser Bean, or Espresso Fiesta, allowing you to surprise your opponent. The Team-Up trait it gives is also useful as many beans have useful abilities and would welcome protection behind a plant, and also grants another plant that allows Go-Nuts to activate their ability again. However, you may also get cards that are not affected by its second ability like Admiral Navy Bean or Navy Bean which already have Team-Up, or non-fighters like Espresso Fiesta or Coffee Grounds.
As for this plant itself, it should only be used as a weak shield for another plant or fodder for Go-Nuts, which it is good at thanks to its Team-Up trait. It can also be useful as a cheap throwaway plant against strong zombies with low health, such as Cuckoo Zombie.
However, due to its low health of 1, avoid playing this on Total Eclipse as Total Eclipse's ability takes priority over Cosmic Bean's ability, destroying Cosmic Bean before it can Conjure a bean card.
You can Bounce Cosmic Bean by playing Rescue Radish to Conjure another bean as well.
While this plant isn't threatening stat-wise, there are some beans you must beware of, namely Espresso Fiesta, Moonbean, or Jelly Bean. Therefore, it is better to focus on the Conjured bean instead of this, unless it is a trick card or your opponent chooses to boost this. Also, try not to Bounce this unless you can win or it has become a huge threat, as your opponent can replay it to Conjure another bean and to reactivate Admiral Navy Bean and Bean Counter's abilities.
