Toadstool is like The Smash's signature superpower, but with a little twist. Unlike his superpower, Toadstool costs a lot more, but comes with a decent plant that produces sun. In other words, it behaves similarly to Chomper, except with better stats and the ability to produce sun. Use it like how you would use Chomper, but with greater benefits to take out some stronger zombies like Portal Technician, Nurse Gargantuar, Undying Pharaoh, and others.
For zombies with enough strength to evade Toadstool's ability, you can play strength-reducing cards like Water Balloons, Scorched Earth and Weed Whack to allow it destroy any zombie with less than 6 or 5 strength such as Shieldcrusher Viking, Trickster, Deep Sea Gargantuar, Zombot Plank Walker, etc. If you keep weakening stronger zombies multiple times, it is also possible to destroy powerful zombies like Octo Zombie or Zombot 1000.
While Toadstool isn't very powerful, its ability is very dangerous. The best counter for its ability is to play high-strength zombies to fight it, or Gravestone zombies to avoid them from being destroyed before they can fight. However, Wall-Knight can play Doom-Shroom and Grave Buster instead, so do not always rely on this strategy when you are against him.
