This card is similar to Rocket Science but cheaper, as it can be handy for plants that get too powerful, like Super-Phat Beets, Pea Pod, Soul Patch, Hibernating Beary or Doubled Mint. It can also be used to destroy glass cannons like Carrotillery. This trick should not be used to destroy Grapes of Wrath as you will receive 6 damage, unless you are close to blocking an attack, or you want to clear the way for powerful zombies.
Keep in mind that Rocket Science has a similar ability, but has a higher brain cost and can be used on plants with 4 or more instead of 5 so it can be more useful in terms of how many plants it can destroy.
Just like Rocket Science, having two or more threatening plants can force your opponent to decide which plant would threaten them more. It is also good that it can't be played again, due to it being a superpower.
