Strategies

With

Sun Strike can be an incredibly strong and useful trick if you have sufficient setup. Although only for this turn, the PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait is a powerful trait, as it lets your plants hit your opponent even if they are hiding behind their zombies, making Sun Strike a good finishing trick too.

While there are powerful plants in the Solar class like Three-Headed Chomper, Cob Cannon, and Pepper M.D., there is only so much the Solar class alone can do. Fortunately, all Solar heroes' secondary classes can make Sun Strike's ability more powerful:

  • Chompzilla has the ability to boost her plants, give them the DoubleStrikeAltDouble Strike trait, and make them do bonus attacks, massively increasing the damage done to her opponent. The PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow class also has a few cards with abilities that activate upon doing damage, such as Moonbean or Captain Cucumber, which means their abilities can activate twice, as long as her opponent doesn't block (which, in that case, only once).
  • Wall-Knight's PvZH Guardian IconGuardian class doesn't excel much in strength (the only real hard-hitters there being Hibernating Beary, Gravitree, and Tricarrotops), but Sun Strike definitely shines in a Pecanolith deck, considering how easily spammable nuts are and how much health they have. He can also use them with PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye plants to make their PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough attacks unblockable, but PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye plants in the Guardian class lack strength (the strongest being Plantern in an environment, with 4 strength), and Wall-Knight doesn't have any ways to boost their strength excluding Pumpkin Shell.
  • Solar Flare is like a mix of Chompzilla and Wall-Knight; she has mass strength-boosting tricks that can guarantee her glass cannons a hit, and she also has PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye cards too. In terms of sheer damage, she is able to excel Chompzilla. However, most of her plants won't be able to survive after the turn Sun Strike is played, and the only viable PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye plant for her to use is Gloom-Shroom, as Astro-Shroom is too weak. Her PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero plants won't particularly find this useful either, as PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero only activates when the lane is empty, which defeats the purpose of PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough. Still, it is better than nothing.
  • Rose is able to use it in Snowdrop PvZH Frozen IconFreeze decks and Go-Nuts decks, as well as on plants that attack on multiple lanes like Rotobaga, Tricorn, Threepeater, and Shooting Starfruit, but since she lacks ways to boost the strength of said plants, she will have to get several of them on the field at once. She can also use Planet of the Grapes to guarantee lots of card draw on the turn she plays this, especially if she uses it with the last examples.

While its first ability is very powerful, its Conjuring ability shouldn't be underestimated either. While it is only one random trick, it could be something good like Cherry Bomb, or even something that can be played on the same turn, like Berry Angry. Chompzilla can make the most out of the Conjured trick, as Captain Cucumber makes it cheaper while it makes Re-Peat Moss do a bonus attack. This ability is also good with Dino-Roar cards too.

However, Sun Strike is heavily dependent on the plants on the field. Therefore, if your opponent's deck is focused on control, you might want to play something that doesn't go to waste even if the affected plant is destroyed (or cannot attack).

Against

Sun Strike is a very dangerous trick, mainly because you can't block the plants by spamming zombies since they will hit you either way. This can spell doom for you if your health is low, if your opponent's plants hit very hard, or both.

Therefore, the best way to counter this trick is to discourage your opponent from playing it from the start. The best way is to destroy as many plants as you can so that Sun Strike's efficiency drops. You have the Zombie Tricks phase of the turn before Sun Strike is played, and the Zombies Play and Zombie Tricks phase of the turn Sun Strike is played to destroy as many as you can before they start attacking. What cards you should play depends on what plants are on the field, and what cards you have access to. While Quickdraw Con Man and Fraidy Cat can punish your opponent from playing it, a mere 1 damage or +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH will most likely not deter your opponent from wrecking you, unless you have many on the field, or they are in a dire situation too. Defensive End is a better choice, as it makes Sun Strike (as well as the Conjured trick) cost more, buying you time to destroy their defenses.

While your zombies won't be spared, shielding Planetary Gladiator with something like Escape through Time is another good alternative, as it will absorb all damage done to you while it stays unharmed.
