"Can you spot me, bro?"
This can be considered as the plant counterpart of Unlife of the Party. First of all, this plant gets stronger the more plants you play, so it is best to plant this at the beginning of the round to get maximum strength. The player can also play it later when the player has more sun to use. Its stats when planted are already great for a 3 sun plant as well. Muscle Sprout can also synergize well with Potted Powerhouse, as this will get boosted every time you play a plant, constantly increasing Potted Powerhouse's strength and health.
Since this plant boosts itself every time a plant is played, use plants that spawn more plants such as Shroom for Two, Pair of Pears and Poppin' Poppies as the plants they summon also boost it. Additionally, the player can play many plants with a low sun cost such as Weenie Beanie or Sweet Potato.
Destroying this plant can be a struggle, as planting more plants by the plant hero will increase its power. If this is used early, try to destroy it fast, before the plant hero has a chance to boost its stats. If this is planted late game, use a powerful zombie, otherwise, Locust Swarm or Rocket Science might be needed. Lastly, cards that have the Deadly trait like Smelly Zombie can take out Muscle Sprout as well, regardless of its stats.
- Its description is a reference to the phrase "spot me," which is used by weightlifters to ask someone to observe themself while lifting weights, as a safety measure in case the weight the weightlifter is lifting falls onto the weightlifter.
