Their bedside manner could use some work.
Nurse Gargantuar is one of the two ways in the Beastly class to heal your zombie hero (excluding superpowers). With 4 strength, every time he attacks, you get healed for 4 health. Consider him like a more powerful, but expensive Venus Flytrap for zombies.
A good way to maximize Nurse Gargantuar's power is to give him the Frenzy trait using Smashing Gargantuar, Coffee Zombie, Possessed, and Maniacal Laugh, or giving him more strength as it allows Nurse Gargantuar to heal more health to the zombie hero. Using Lurch for Lunch or Electrician to make him do bonus attacks is also a good option.
As The Smash, Gargologist will be able to let him be played earlier than usual since she will be able to lower the cost to 5, allowing some early healing. Using Rodeo Gargantuar, Terrify, or Sumo Wrestler in tandem with him can lead to some efficient means of healing, especially once you get into the late game.
Since this zombie can heal the hero, the best strategy is to either destroy this zombie quickly or play tricks to reduce his strength to 0. Try to play tricks that makes your plants can not be hurt such as Root Wall or Peel Shield, so they can attack Nurse Gargantuar without him healing the zombie hero, although only Citron and Grass Knuckles can do this. Laser Bean is also useful, as it hits both Nurse Gargantuar and your opponent, resulting in them with no health difference and a damaged Nurse Gargantuar. Use tricks or powerful plants to get rid of him such as Shamrocket, Lawnmower, or Sizzle, because otherwise he would heal the zombie hero, nullifying the damage caused by your plants.
