Card description

It's not so much "hahaha" as it is "mwahahaha."



Maniacal Laugh can easily turn the tide if the player is in danger. Using this on an already strong zombie will most likely obliterate plant defenses. And due to its nature of giving the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait, if the zombie manages to destroy a plant, which it will most likely do due to its huge stat boost, it will attack again.

This trick is very good for almost any zombie, but it's better used when a powerful zombie is on the field, because it's quite expensive to use. Use this on Undying Pharaoh, because the Undying Pharaoh won't let the zombie hero's health go less than 1 and it will give it Frenzy, so it can go through plants and also hurt the plant hero. Try using this trick with Paparazzi Zombie, because it will give it add 6 strength, 6 health and Frenzy, because it's a trick. Hard to hit cards like Newspaper Zombie and Jester can pressure the player even more, as these cards will be hard to hit due to their abilities.

Using this on a PvZH Strikethrough Iconstrikethrough zombie, such as Hot Dog Imp can guarantee heavy damage to the plant hero, although this can only be used by Brain Freeze (and Professor Brainstorm with Eureka).

If you are Immorticia and have this card along with Shieldcrusher Viking use it on said zombie. It will have 10 strength points, Bullseye and its ability to drain the enemy's Super-Block Meter, making for a very powerful threat.


When this is used, it is best to bounce the zombie as soon as possible as it will remove it's stat boost and Frenzy. Using something like Squash to destroy the zombie instantly also works well. However, this can only happen if the player survives the Fight phase since zombie tricks happen after plants get to play.

Wall-Knight can use Uncrackable to avoid taking damage, allowing the player to stall and avoid taking damage. Using teammates that allow you to PvZH Frozen Iconfreeze zombies, such as Chilly Pepper or Iceberg Lettuce can also stall a zombie buffed from Maniacal Laugh for a turn or more. Ideally, Root Wall can also be used if a plant is in the same lane as the buffed zombie.

A hard-counter to a zombie buffed through Maniacal Laugh is using bouncing effects, such as Spring Bean. Bouncing simply reverts that zombie to their original stats and removes Frenzy from them.
