Flag Zombie is a very useful zombie to have, as his ability makes 1 zombies free and allows you to bring out expensive cards a turn earlier than usual. Rustbolt can also obtain extra brains when he plays Brain Vendor. His high health for a 2 zombie means that he can withstand a hit or two as well. However, he has very low strength which means he will not trade well with many plants on turn 2. Therefore, playing health-boosting tricks to make Flag Zombie last longer is recommended, or strength-boosting cards to make him hit harder. However, you may choose not to boost him at all, and instead boost other zombies to distract your opponent into destroying them first.
When playing against a Hearty hero, try to focus on Flag Zombies, because even if his stats are not a big threat, his ability can allow your opponent to play strong zombies much earlier than usual. And due to health-boosting cards like Camel Crossing or Rock Wall, it is better to destroy this zombie while he is still fairly weak.
A trick such as Berry Blast, Cherry Bomb, or Squash can be easily played in order to destroy Flag Zombie relatively easily. If tricks are not an option, plants that do 3 damage or more in one attack such as Bonk Choy, Fire Peashooter, and Apple-Saucer can destroy him as well.
