Card description

He's good at making friends.



As he will grant you a free zombie through a gravestone upon hitting your opponent, it is recommended to keep Tomb Raiser Zombie alive as long as possible by keeping his lane clear. Boosting his health is also suggested, as he will survive longer, resulting in more gravestones. Giving him PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy by playing Possessed or Maniacal Laugh can let him attack the plant hero if he manages to destroy all the plants in the lane with his attack as long as he still survives. Using this zombie in combination with Headstone Carver is a great strategy, as both Tomb Raiser Zombie and the zombies made by him will be given +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH after emerging from their gravestones.

Moving him to an empty lane with tricks like Smoke Bomb is also beneficial, as your opponent cannot do anything during the zombie tricks phrase. Super Brainz can use Carried Away or Lurch for Lunch on him so he can make at least two gravestones within a single turn.

Due to his lacking stats of 2StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH as well as his expensive cost, it can be hard for Tomb Raiser Zombie to survive, so be sure to save some brains for tricks in order to allow him to activate his ability, because it only activates when he hurts the plant hero.

However, do be reminded that this zombie's ability is also luck-based. While you could get powerful zombies like Surprise Gargantuar or even a legendary like Binary Stars, you could just as easily get zombies that don't fit well in your deck (like Mad Chemist when you're not using a trick deck) or have insufficient stats.

Tomb Raiser Zombie can also be paired with environments to give him a greater chance of activating his ability. Notable environments include Laser Base Alpha, Moon Base Z (only normally possible as Impfinity), and Ice Moon (only normally possible as Huge-Gigantacus), which give him traits that can easily hit the plant hero.

While his ability is great for bringing more zombie fighters into the battle, the fact he creates Gravestones should not be understated as well. Since gravestones will not be revealed until the Zombie Tricks phase of the following turn, they can be taken advantage of as shields to protect you.

Since he makes an extra zombie when he hits the plant hero, he synergies well with Unlife of the Party, as each gravestone revealed counts as playing another zombie. However, only Impfinity can do so normally.


Despite having low stats even for his cost, Tomb Raiser Zombie can become devastating if you give him a chance. When you see him, block his lane quickly, as he can only make gravestones when he does damage to you. You should destroy him as fast as possible. When Tomb Raiser Zombie makes a gravestone, you should prepare for any zombie with the Gravestone trait, since Tomb Raiser Zombie can make Gravestone zombies that are not from the Sneaky class. Grave Buster is a good counter against this zombie, as it will instantly destroy the gravestones. You can also use Spyris to know which random zombie is summoned by Tomb Raiser Zombie. This way you can prepare to face threats from the gravestones. To stop Tomb Raiser Zombie if he has already emerged from his gravestone, Whack-a-Zombie, Lawnmower, Berry Blast, and other tricks will all work due to his low stats.

Since he needs to hit you to activate his ability, you can use Soul Patch to negate his ability.




  • Unlike his Plants vs. Zombies 2 counterpart, he makes zombies that have the gravestone trait, rather than summoning tombstones that block plant attacks.
  • For unknown reasons, sometimes he does not create a Gravestone zombie, despite having directly attacked the plant hero.
    • In addition, sometimes he makes a Gravestone and softlocks the game, but the chance of that is extremely low.
  • He appears on Rustbolt's premium pack, even though the player can't get him from that pack since he is in the Sneaky class and Rustbolt can't play him normally.
  • There was a glitch where Mixed-Up Gravedigger could be made by his ability, even though he does not have the Gravestone trait.
    • This might be because Mixed-Up Gravedigger makes every zombie on the field hide in a Gravestone when he is played, including himself, and mixes them around, thus technically giving him the Gravestone trait.
      • The game softlocked upon making him, as Tomb Raiser Zombie's turn never ended. This would result in the current match unable to end normally. This happened because Mixed-Up Gravedigger made every zombie on the field hide in a Gravestone, but because Tomb Raiser Zombie did not hide inside a Gravestone prior to that, the turn never ended.
