Card description

He comes from a long line of very precise cucumbers.

Strategies

With

Tactical Cuke works similar to Doom-Shroom except for costing 1 more sun and his ability being more extreme in a way. While Doom-Shroom only destroys stronger plants and zombies, Tactical Cuke is a complete reset of the ground lanes' fighters.

If your opponent spends many brains playing zombies of great power, Tactical Cuke is a great way to erase their play. With enough spare sun, this can be followed up by a powerful offensive plant like Magnifying Grass. You can also place the Solar Winds environment on every ground lane and then play Tactical Cuke in the next few turns. That way, you can wipe out all your plant space as well as the zombies, which can help obtain more sun in the next turn.

This can also purely be played as a last ditch emergency card, wiping out powerful zombies on ground lanes so you can live to the next turn, avoiding certain defeat. This is especially helpful against zombie heroes that rely on environment decks, where you can destroy powerful zombies that are in powerful environments.

If you need to avoid destroying your own plants but need to destroy a zombie on the ground lane, then Lawnmower is a better option.

Try to avoid using this trick when there are zombies with "When destroyed" abilities on the ground lanes such as Gas Giant or Imposter, as they will activate their abilities when this trick is played.

Against

This trick can spell disaster when he is played, and unlike Doom-Shroom, you can't depend on lower strength zombies to avoid him like you can with Doom-Shroom. This can turn out worse if you are playing an environment deck as all your zombies in your special environments will be destroyed. The best way to counter this trick would be to try and discourage your opponent from playing the trick in the first place. Gravestone zombies are highly effective, as zombies are immune to him while in their gravestones. The Graveyard environment is the best counter as your opponent cannot use Tactical Cuke with it, but beware of Wall-Knight who can use Grave Buster.

If your deck lacks Gravestone zombies, playing Teleport or Teleportation Zombie is another way of dealing with your opponent even after the ground has been wiped out.

Lastly, acknowledge the fact that this trick only affects fighters on the ground lanes. Use the heights and aquatic lanes to play zombies more safely. However, some heroes like Rose and Wall-Knight have an advantage on the aquatic lanes, while some heroes like Chompzilla have an advantage on the heights.
