This zombie is a really strong one. With a massive 7/7 for just 6, he can destroy tough plants while surviving powerful attacks like Cherry Bomb or Sizzle. If he gains traits from Wizard Gargantuar and/or Smashing Gargantuar, or is played on an aquatic lane when against Solar Flare, Chompzilla, or Captain Combustible, this can easily end the game in the favor of the zombie hero.
Because he has the Amphibious trait, you can also play this on an aquatic lane. Since most Amphibious plants are not as powerful as most ones without the Amphibious trait, he can survive a few hits in aquatic lanes and land heavy damage on the plant hero. Using Vitamin Z or Galvanize on him will make him even stronger and turn him into a huge threat for the plant hero.
However, because of his high cost, this zombie can only be played later in the game, when the plant hero can also use powerful cards to deal with Deep Sea Gargantuar. You can play Gargologist to allow him to be played at least 2 turns earlier. However, this combo can primarily only be played with The Smash.
This zombie is one of the strongest Amphibious zombies, and the only Amphibious plants that can destroy him are Guacodile and The Great Zucchini, but even they will get destroyed if unboosted. Squash can destroy any zombie, so it is also a good counter against him. Shamrocket is an even better choice, as it can also destroy Deep Sea Gargantuar for a cheaper price than Squash. Another strategy is using Banana Peel, Whipvine, Sweet Potato, or Sweet Pea to move this zombie to a ground lane if he is on an aquatic lane, so he can be in range of Tactical Cuke, Lawnmower, or Scorched Earth. The Great Zucchini, Transmogrify and Goatify are also effective choices to use, which all turn this zombie into a much weaker zombie.
