Electric Blueberry is a very powerful plant to use, being able to do massive damage of 6 to your opponent or their zombies, but at the same time, its luck-based nature of attacking can make it unreliable in most situations. However, 6 damage is still quite high, so it may be worth the risk to add some to your deck.
Spudow synergizes well with it, as he can give it protection with Team-Up plants, as well as let it gain strength with Spineapple, which gives it reliable defense on its own. Solar Flare can also use Electric Blueberry well, being able to heal it with 2nd-Best Taco of All Time. Nightcap can Bounce zombies in its way, while Captain Combustible can boost it, allowing it to attack zombies and take more hits.
If you have Sergeant Strongberry in your deck, you can play that first and then Electric Blueberry so they can do 8 damage to a zombie, which is enough to defeat any non-boosted zombies except Zombot 1000, Knight of the Living Dead, Rodeo Gargantuar, and Wannabe Hero if your opponent's health is at least 8.
Try to play Electric Blueberry on an empty lane, although it is a slightly risky move due to the fact that your opponent could play a zombie with the Deadly trait on that empty lane, making it so that Electric Blueberry can only do 6 damage once. Another option is to play it on a lane with a weak zombie with low strength so Electric Blueberry can activate its ability multiple times before finally getting destroyed. However, you should watch out for strength-boosting tricks in that case.
Take note that Electric Blueberry's ability hits your opponent if there are no zombies on the field.
Electric Blueberry does have some downsides, though. The first downside is that it has no strength, which means it is naturally vulnerable to Rolling Stone and Weed Spray, but it can easily be solved by boosting it with tricks like Fertilize or Berry Angry. Another downside is that its ability is luck-based as well, so you should not solely depend on it to handle your threats. Therefore, if you want Electric Blueberry to aim at a target you want, try to destroy other zombies to increase your chances. The third downside is that it takes a long time to destroy groups, due to its ability hitting only one zombie at a time.
This plant is a huge threat if left alone, and should be prioritized to be destroyed.
Using high-strength zombies or Deadly zombies are a great way of dealing with this plant. Due to its lack of strength, Hearty heroes can also deal with it easily by playing Rolling Stone or Weed Spray. If all else fails, bouncing it with Backyard Bounce, Pogo Bouncer or Zombot Stomp is also a viable idea, due to its high cost. You can also use Squirrel Herder to destroy Electric Blueberry instantly, as it is a part of the berry tribe. However, Spudow can play Grave Buster to destroy Squirrel Herder before she can activate her ability.
While it is luck-based, you can spam cheap zombies like Tennis Champ to have a higher chance of avoiding damage from its ability. However, Sour Grapes can ruin this strategy unless many of your spammed zombies have at least 2 health. Having the field full of Shielded zombies such as Trash Can Zombie or sports zombies protected by Zombie Coach can also almost negate the ability of Electric Blueberry.
