|Tribe||Science Imp Trick|
|Abilities||Make a 6/5 Copter Commando Imp.|
|Refuses to fly over water due to a severe case of aquaphobia.|
Its name is a portmanteau of "hail," referring to the fact that it makes a Copter Commando and "helicopter," referring to the vehicle that Copter Commando pilots.
Refuses to fly over water due to a severe case of aquaphobia.
- Set change: Premium - Uncommon → Basic - Common
- Description change: Was originally Beats hailing a cab.
This card is essentially a package containing a Copter Commando (6 worth of minion) and Teleport (a 1-worth effect). While the Copter Commando is decidedly under-stated for its effect, the card's element of surprise can help turn the battle in the zombie hero's favor.
This trick can be used on a poorly defended lane to snipe a dangerous plant, or on an empty lane to almost guarantee direct damage to the plant hero. As a science Imp zombie, the summoned Copter Commando also gains full benefit from Zombot Drone Engineer and Gadget Scientist, as well as Toxic Waste Imp and Imp Commander (Super Brainz only).
Because Hail-a-Copter is a trick, Brainana can easily counter it. Squash, Lawnmower, and Doom-Shroom can also deal with Copter Commando. Sizzle is able to destroy Copter Commando due to it doing 5 damage, provided its health isn't boosted.
- Before the 1.2.11 update, it used to have a unique card description. However, after the mentioned update, the Hail-a-Copter uses Copter Commando's description.
