Swabbie is a token zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky class. He is made by Imp-Throwing Gargantuar, Barrel Roller Zombie, and Zombot Plank Walker, but can also be made by Summoning or Portal Technician, transformed by Transmogrify, or obtained as a card from Eureka. He costs 1BrainPvZH to play (only when he is Bounced and as a card from Eureka), and has 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH. He has the Amphibious trait, and does not have any abilities.

Origins

He is based on the Imp Pirate Zombie from Plants vs. Zombies 2.

His name is based on the real meaning of swabbie, a slang for a low ranked member of the navy.

Strategies

With

Swabbie is in most cases only useful as a shield to absorb incoming fire for his owner, as his basic stats do not allow him to survive very long or deal significant damage to plants or the plant hero. However, he can be boosted for the extra damage or defense, with the help of Maniacal Laugh and the like.

A pirate-themed deck using Imp-Throwing Gargantuar or Zombot Plank Walker, to spawn a Swabbie or in the case of the latter, spawning more other pirate zombies, and Swashbuckler Zombie, benefits Swabbie and other pirate zombies from Swashbuckler, who raises their stats when they hurt the zombie hero.

An Imp-themed one with Toxic Waste Imp, adding the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait to all Imp zombies, and Imp Commander, to draw an extra card when an Imp hurts the zombie hero, can take great advantage of Swabbie.

Against

Anything that can attack can destroy this zombie. Use minimal powered plants or tricks, and bounce this zombie if he gets powered up too much.

Try to not waste useful cards like Wild Berry or Sizzle on it, unless it's boosted. Sour Grapes is a good plant against this zombie as it can destroy it without needing to waste any potentially useful cards.
