Card description

"You hurt me, I hurt you. That's how this works."

Strategies

With

Prickly Pear acts like a Wall-Nut, but with less health and more expensive. However, unlike Wall-Nut, which only blocks hits, Prickly Pear can retaliate back when hurt, and with an offensive plant behind, makes quick work of a majority of zombies. Due to this, you can guard a plant with no strength and still take care of any zombie in its lane. Prickly Pear can be boosted by Spineapple too, giving it some base strength on top of its abilities.

The player should be wary if they face a PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky or PvZH Hearty IconHearty hero, as they could either use PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies, Rolling Stone, or Weed Spray, which easily destroys it.

Against

Prickly Pear is a dangerous plant if you do not counter it well. First of all, 4 damage is quite a lot against almost all zombies that can be played on the fourth turn, destroying or heavily damaging them.

Because it does damage whenever it is hurt, PvZH Frozen IconFreezing it or doing a bonus attack will not do you any good since you get hurt either way, as you would when you attack it normally. It is best to destroy it in one hit, requiring a zombie with 4 or more strength. PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies can also be a replacement for zombies with 4 strength or more.

Another thing to note is that Prickly Pear's ability can only damage zombies and not the zombie hero, so you can use tricks against it when no zombies are in its lane. Also, since Prickly Pear's ability only activates when it is hurt, and not instantly destroyed, you are free to use Rolling Stone or any other instant-kill cards against Prickly Pear without any harm.
