Cryo-Yeti is a galactic legendary zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky class. He costs 5BrainPvZH to play, and has 3StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH. He does not have any traits, and his abilities give the PvZH Frozen IconFreeze effect to a plant when he is played, and give him +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH every time a plant or zombie receives the PvZH Frozen IconFreeze effect. His closest plant counterpart is Snowdrop.

Origins

His appearance is based on Mr. Freeze, a villain from the Batman universe who wears a similar suit.

His description makes a reference to the proverbial phrase "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade," which is used to encourage optimism in the face of misfortune.

Strategies

With

This zombie is really useful in freezing decks. In addition, this is also useful against PvZH Smarty IconSmarty heroes that also utilize freezing decks as whenever a plant or zombie is frozen, Cryo-Yeti gets +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH. But there is another plus – playing him will let you freeze a plant for an average zombie of 5StrengthPvZH/6HeartPvZH for 5BrainPvZH. Never play this zombie if there are no plants on board as it will lose his second ability and make him just a 3StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH.

It is highly recommended to bring PvZH Frozen IconFreeze cards like Frosty Mustache, Ice Pirate, and mainly Unthawed Viking to benefit this zombie greatly. However, as for Ice Pirate, you will also want to bring environments for her so she can freeze a plant.

This zombie is the best with Brain Freeze, mainly due to his signature superpower, Frozen Tundra, as it can PvZH Frozen IconFreeze all plants on all ground lanes, which can give this zombie a massive boost if there are more plants on the ground lanes. Alternatively, he can use Cryo-Yeti with Zookeeper to activate his ability and Cat Lady to boost her up, since he is also a pet zombie.

He can also be used with Huge-Gigantacus, as his superpower, Ice Moon, can give him a maximum of +4StrengthPvZH/+4HeartPvZH, on top of freezing all plants on his lane and giving him the PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait.

Against

This is a tough zombie that allows the opponent to freeze a plant when played. But the biggest threat is that this can get a boost when a fighter gets frozen, so be careful dealing with this, especially when against Brain Freeze, who does have a PvZH Frozen IconFreeze card naturally, namely Frozen Tundra. To turn out even worse, if you are playing a freezing deck, this zombie can still be boosted as his ability affects all fighters that are frozen.

However, if you are still using a freezing deck, Winter Squash is recommended as freezing Cyro-Yeti could still boost him, but will destroy him right away. If this zombie gets out of hand, use Shamrocket, Doom-Shroom or Squash to destroy him. You can also Bounce this zombie as a last resort, but be careful that he can be played again and he will freeze another plant at the next turn. When against Brain Freeze, watch out for any Zookeepers and Cat Ladies, at they will benefit from pet zombies being Bounced.

You can also rely on decks that ramp up resources to playing expensive cards. This is because that this zombie will be useless if there are no plants on board.
