Electric Boogaloo is a Beastly and Crazy zombie hero, and with these classes together, not much can benefited from. The main tactic with Electric Boogaloo is to swarm the field with boosted zombies, notably consisting of those in the pet or dancing tribe. However, these decks can easily be ruined by a skilled opponent. In addition, this playstyle is also not that great for Electric Boogaloo, as he has absolutely no way of drawing more cards besides Evaporate, so opponents can easily drain his cards out and win from there. Other heroes can also pull off better tribe decks. For instance, Brain Freeze can do a better pet tribe deck, Immorticia and The Smash can do a better Gargantuar deck, and Professor Brainstorm can handle a dancing deck better with more cards. Electric Boogaloo still shines, however, with tricks, particularly, his signature superpower, Stayin' Alive, and Locust Swarm. Both of these can defeat big threats, especially Locust Swarm. Beastly cards, such as Vitamin Z and Maniacal Laugh, can be used on Crazy teammates, such as Newspaper Zombie or Valkyrie, making them extremely potent threats. Boogaloo's superpowers are also great as well, useful for doing damage to a plant or the plant hero itself. Healing options are plentiful for Electric Boogaloo, but not as decent as Rustbolt or The Smash. Starting the game with Boogaloo can be hard, as his starting zombie teammates do not do well against most opponents. If the player wants to pick Rustbolt at the start of the game, Boogaloo will have to be chosen in order for Rustbolt to show up. Overall, Electric Boogaloo has his ups and downs and when used correctly, but mostly he can swarm the field with dangerous zombies in quick succession, especially when against threats such as Wall-Knight or Nightcap.
As mentioned above, Electric Boogaloo's biggest flaw is his inability to draw cards. Try to bait him into using all of his cards against you. From there, you can take care of his zombies easily. His main strategy is to play a lot of dancing zombies, and use Aerobics Instructor to boost their strength every turn. It is recomended to destroy these zombies before he plays Flamenco Zombie to do big damage to you. You also need to be careful of his tricks, as he has access to cards like Bungee Plumber, Zombot's Wrath, Electrobolt, and Evaporate to destroy your plants easily, and Nibble and Stayin' Alive to heal himself, not to mention all of the stat boosting cards he can use. Therefore, it is important to play a rush game against him to make sure his tricks do not decimate you. Brainana works well to shut down his tricks, and you can also use Black-Eyed Pea or Sportacus to penalize him for playing tricks.
You could also drive him into a long game. This does carry some risk, however, as Electric Boogaloo has access to Gargantuars' Feast, which could turn the tide of the battle and may cause a bad end for you.
