Pineclone is a premium super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom plants. It costs 4SunPvZH to use, and has 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. When played, it turns all other plants into identical Pineclones; plants with Amphibious and Team-Up will stay in their positions when transformed.

Origins

Pineclone's appearance is based on the conifer cone, regularly known as the pine cone. The name is a portmanteau of "pine cone," the real-life plant this plant is based on and "clone," referring to the ability to clone itself (compare snowclone).

Card description

Strategies

With

It's important to not use this as long as you have important plants on the field, such as Soul Patch or Cornucopia. However, there is a good way to use this with Cornucopia - bounce it, preferably through Rescue Radish (if you manage to get it via Cornucopia when using Solar Flare) before you place the Pineclone, and it will turn all the newly placed plants into other Pineclones.

Don't use it if there are almost no plants on the field, as Pineclone's ability is what makes it important. It's also a bad idea if majority of plants on the field have anything above 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH; this just weakens your plants, and can make you more vulnerable.

A good idea is to use it when there are a lot of weaker plants on the field. This will make the weaker plants stronger (ex. if you have multiple Button Mushrooms, Peashooters, etc, you can use this plant to make them stronger and thus overwhelm the enemy).

Another good idea is using cards with Team-Up before playing; this can allow you to have even more Pineclones on the field than normally possible. Shroom for Two is a very good choice as it has Team-Up, which will increase the amount of Pineclones summoned. Another decent idea is Shellery, since with the small cost of just 1 sun, it's simple to afford and plant before playing your Pineclone. It is highly not recommended to use this with any legendarys.

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 the 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, thus immune to Rolling Stone, Weed Spray, Rocket Science, Cut Down to Size, and The Chickening. It will require a Cakesplosion to defeat this using tricks on turn 4, but it can only destroy one of them. If you have to deal with groups of them, use two The Chickenings.
