This zombie can help you in using tricks to evade plant attacks or to damage the plant hero during the mid-game. This can be really devastating if used correctly. For example, it is possible to use a Hail-a-Copter or even Teleport and Shieldcrusher Viking on turn 4 with a Gentleman Zombie surviving the 3rd and 4th turns. Because he gives 2BrainPvZH at the start of the Zombie Tricks phase, you won't be able to spend these brains on playing zombies unless Teleport is played, so it is advisable to save some brains for tricks to make use of this zombie's ability efficiently. However, be wary of his stats as he only has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH, meaning he can be destroyed easily. As Rustbolt, it is recommended to increase Gentleman Zombie's health with tricks such as Camel Crossing and Rock Wall. Immorticia, on the other hand, can boost him using Vitamin Z to make him a more dangerous threat.

Try to have him along with Mad Chemist and Paparazzi Zombie on the lawn, as they will create a deadly combo. Since Mad Chemist gives you a random trick, it is important to have more brains to prepare for what he will give you. Paparazzi Zombie gets a boost each time you play a trick, so these three zombies make a good synergy if used correctly. Gentleman Zombie can also be used to alleviate Brainana's ability by giving back some of the brains that were taken away, giving the zombie hero 2BrainPvZH back for each Gentleman Zombie on board.

Immorticia can use this zombie to her advantage as she can launch lethal tricks that can usually only be played much later. Some examples are Maniacal Laugh or even the Teleport + Zombot 1000 combo. This can help lower the cost of Trickster with Gentleman Zombie, as well as deploy higher-costing tricks that will benefit you greatly such as Hail-a-Copter or Gargantuars' Feast. As such, having at least one Gentleman Zombie in a trick-oriented deck is a very important point.

Gentleman Zombie works greatly with Teleport, as the player can use the extra 2BrainPvZH to play a zombie one round early. 1BrainPvZH will go towards the Teleport and the other will go towards the zombie.

As Super Brainz, you can simply give Gentleman Zombie a miniature boost by having Headstone Carver in play, as Gentleman Zombie comes out of a gravestone, or by moving him out of the way of dangerous plants to unoccupied lanes with Smoke Bomb.


The plant hero will probably be able to destroy this zombie when played, as a zombie with 2HeartPvZH is easy to defeat on the third turn. However, the plant hero should prepare for a series of tricks if this zombie is not taken care of. Plan accordingly and avoid wasting powerful plants just on trying to destroy this zombie, as the zombie hero can easily use a trick to dispose of the recently played plant.

You can also try deterring by playing Black-Eyed Pea or Sportacus to make the zombie hero reconsider playing tricks.
