Pineclone is a premium super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom class. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability turns every plant on the field into Pineclones when it is played. Plants with the Amphibious or Team-Up trait stay in their positions when they are transformed.

Origins

It is based on the conifer cone, regularly known as the pine cone.

Its name is a portmanteau of "pine cone," the real-life plant this plant is based on, and "clone," referring to its ability to clone itself (compare snowclone).

Card description

Strategies

With

Don't play it if there are almost no plants on the field, as Pineclone's ability is what makes it important. It is also a bad idea if the majority of plants on the field have anything above 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH as this just weakens your plants. It is important to not play this when you have important plants on the field, such as Soul Patch or Cornucopia.

A good strategy is to play it when there are a lot of weaker plants on the field, making the weaker plants stronger. For example, if you have multiple Button Mushrooms, Peashooters, etc., you can play this plant to make all of them stronger and overwhelm your opponent.

Another good idea is using cards with Team-Up before playing, as this can allow you to have even more Pineclones on the field than normally possible. Shroom for Two, Poppin' Poppies, and More Spore are good choices as they make multiple plants, which will increase the number of Pineclones made. Another decent idea is Shellery, since with the small cost of just 1 sun, it is simple to afford and play before playing Pineclone. However, only Nightcap can normally perform this combo.

Against

If your opponent seems to be focusing on this card, they will very likely to rush you off with weak plants before the final push with Pineclones. Do not Bounce this plant as this will allow the use of Pineclone once again, possibly causing more plants to be converted into 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH Pineclones.

Countering this is not easy. It has three health and three strength, and is thus immune to Rolling Stone, Weed Spray, Rocket Science, and Cut Down to Size. Having three health also means that Pineclones can survive The Chickening with only one health left. It requires either Zombot's Wrath, Electrobolt, Stayin' Alive, or Cakesplosion to destroy it using tricks on turn 4, but it can only destroy one of them. When there are only a few Pineclones, most zombies should be available to destroy them. If you have to deal with groups of them, use a combination of Fireworks Zombie, Barrel of Deadbeards and The Chickening to do at least 3 damage.
