Card description

Lava has no loyalty. It's just hot. It just IS.

Strategies

With

This environment can be beneficial if used correctly. As it does damage to both plants and zombies, don't play plants that have 1HeartPvZH on the same lane this environment is on, as they will be destroyed before combat.

Some plants can benefit from this environment, for example Hibernating Beary will get +4StrengthPvZH before combat on this environment, which will be very helpful to destroy most zombies or deal serious damage on the zombie hero.

Plants which feature abilities that activate when they take damage can also be taken advantage of. Potato Mine, Primal Potato Mine, or Hot Date can be used to take out zombies with 3HeartPvZH or less, clearing way for a direct attack. Similarly, Prickly Pear will also activate its ability before combat. Another plant that can benefit from this environment is Mirror-Nut, especially if another nut is also played on this lane, as this will activate Mirror-Nut's ability.

As this is an environment, Invasive Species gains a boost from this, which makes it another good choice. However, be warned that Hot Lava will decrease its longevity.

However, don't use this on lanes with Jester or Newspaper Zombie, as doing so will activate their abilities.

Against

This environment can destroy zombies with 1HeartPvZH such as Exploding Imp, Mini-Ninja, Pool Shark, etc. If this is played on a lane where one of these zombies is played, you can keep them alive by boosting their health with tricks such as Camel Crossing and Vitamin Z.

However, some zombies can benefit from this environment. A good example is Newspaper Zombie, as he will gain +4StrengthPvZH before combat, which will let him destroy stronger plants, or deal heavy damage to the plant hero. Jester is another good option, as this will activate his ability every turn before combat. Barrel of Deadbeards and Gas Giant can also be used to activate their damaging abilities.
