Since it has 3 health and costs 1 brain, it can be hard to kill on the first few turns. You should take advantage of this: Play it as quick as possible, Play as many Gravestone Zombies as possible, and boost it for it to stay alive. While playing against Green Shadow, don't put it in the center lane, as she can destroy it right off the bat (unless you want to block the 5 damage).
This can be combined with Mixed-Up Gravedigger to boost all zombies on the lawn. However, this will only happen if Headstone Carver is the first zombie to be revealed. In that case, it won't boost anyone (but it can boost itself). To avoid this, play this after you play Mixed-Up Gravedigger.
Because Headstone Carver has 3 health, it can be hard to destroy in the first turn, since it can survive a lot of 1-cost plant cards or tricks, such as Party Thyme, Shellery, Power Pummel, Sunburn, etc. You can destroy it instantly for the cost of 1 sun with Bonk Choy, Meteor Strike, Precision Blast 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 it from boosting revealed zombies.
