Some nights sundown comes early...
Ra Zombie is useful for delaying the plant player's attempt at using cost-heavy cards such as Squash, Dandy Lion King, Three-Headed Chomper, The Great Zucchini, and most plant legendaries to turn the tide of battle. Otherwise, Ra Zombie is not a particularly great card: His 3/4 stat is worth 3 at best, so theoretically he will leave the zombie hero at a 1 disadvantage for the turn he is played. In addition, this does not benefit from any tribe. Thus, he is only best used on the 6th turn in which he can prevent a Squash or a few expensive legendaries, and he does not stop a few cheap powerful plants such as Doubled Mint.
Ra Zombie is most effective when used with Flag Zombie, as Flag Zombie's ability allows Ra Zombie to be played earlier, when the plant hero has fewer sun to able to play plants.
Unless in desperate needs, do not use Teleport on Ra Zombie. Doing this is useless, as he will only act as a meat shield, and his ability will go to waste. Drum Major is a much better choice to teleport in this type of situation. The same will apply to Mixed-Up Gravedigger and In-Crypted as the plant hero cannot play anything after, making Ra Zombie's ability useless.
When playing against a Hearty zombie hero, always be prepared in turn 6, as the hero is able to summon this anytime. There are not many counters to this zombie, so try to keep cheap tricks such as Berry Blast to potentially destroy threatening zombies. Using Sunflowers and Twin Sunflowers will be able to cause Ra Zombie to have little or no effect on your sun at all, as the Ra Zombie only makes you lose 2.
