She's climbed 'em all: Everest. K2. Your house.
Mountain Climber is a zombie which behaves similarly like Drum Major that exchanges placement flexibility for the Bullseye trait. While the sacrifice is certainly considerable, Mountain Climber's lack of the Dancing tribe makes it a strictly worse choice in Professor Brainstorm's Dancing decks, as it does not benefits from the abilities of Aerobics Instructor and Flamenco Zombie unlike Drum Major does. Mountain Climber also doesn't work in a Science deck, particularly with Professor Brainstorm.
Still, because it is a Sports zombie, it retains its usefulness in Rustbolt decks, and is able to be boosted by zombies such as Team Mascot and Zombie Coach like Drum Major can. Due to its trait, you may give it Lurch for Lunch to make it deal extra damage to the plant hero without filling the Block Meter.
Mountain Climber will most likely be played on the Heights, so prepare a plant to destroy this. Using tricks help with destroying this zombie. Beware of this zombie's Bullseye trait, as it will not fill the plant hero's Super-Block Meter. Also beware of Team Mascot, as it can buff Mountain Climber. Sumo Wrestler can also move a plant on the roof out of the way so Mountain Climber gets a free hit. This can be very common in a Sports deck.
