Since he has a lot of health for such a cheap zombie, he can be hard to destroy on the first few turns. But what makes him shine is his ability to give Gravestone zombies a small boost upon being revealed. Therefore, play him early on, then try to play as many Gravestone zombies as possible. Additionally, you can boost him to keep him alive.

He can be combined with Mixed-Up Gravedigger to boost all zombies on the field. However, this can only happen if Headstone Carver is the first zombie to be revealed, and any zombies revealed before he is cannot be boosted by him, as he is technically not on the field if he is hiding in a gravestone. To avoid this, play him after you play Mixed-Up Gravedigger.

Headstone Carver synergizes well with any Sneaky hero, but especially with Impfinity. A notable example is Exploding Imp, as he can keep Exploding Imp alive for another turn after attacking, or at least after taking 1 damage. Other cards such as Newspaper Zombie, Conga Zombie, and Jester also do well with Headstone Carver. Besides, Impfinity has access to In-Crypted (also available to Neptuna), which allows him to hide a zombie in a gravestone, and boost that zombie a little bit if Headstone Carver is still in play.


Because Headstone Carver has 3 health, he can be hard to destroy on the first turn, since he can survive a lot of 1-cost plant cards or tricks, such as Party Thyme, Shellery, Power Pummel, Sunburn, etc. You can destroy him instantly for the cost of 1 sun with Bonk Choy, Meteor Strike, Precision Blast, Tater Toss, or Devour. You should also have some Grave Busters with you, just in case Headstone Carver gets out of control. This way, you can prevent him from boosting revealed zombies.
