Despite being weak in terms of health and strength, this fighter can help you a lot if used correctly. You should try to have other Imps besides this fighter so that more Imps present can take down more plant fighters. Using healing cards such as Medic or stat-increasing tricks like Camel Crossing will allow him to be present for a longer period of time. It can also be teleported in via Teleport or Teleportation Zombie after the plant hero is done playing plants in front of other Imps to leave a nasty surprise.
Since he is an Imp zombie, he synergizes well with Imp Commander and vice versa. While he gives Imp Commander Deadly, Imp Commander allows you to draw a card every time he hurts the plant hero. Since Toxic Waste Imp is Amphibious, it is easy for him to hurt the plant hero since there are not many Amphibious plants and none when the opponent is playing as heroes such as Solar Flare, thus guaranteeing an extra card in many situations.
This zombie also works wonders with Hot Dog Imp, as it gives Hot Dog Imp Deadly to destroy all plants on his lane. This can help you destroy tougher plants with very high health easily, even when they are protected by a Team-Up plant.
In general, using any kind of Imp can benefit this greatly, and should be easy to pull off as each other zombie class also has Imp zombies, for example Loudmouth in Beastly, Leprechaun Imp in Brainy, Loose Cannon in Crazy, and Turkey Rider in Hearty.
As of update 1.22.13, he can also make Imp tricks deadly, so using Cakesplosion while this is on the field will allow you to easily destroy a plant for 1 brain less than Locust Swarm.
When this is played, you should prioritize on destroying him with a low-cost card such as Sea-Shroom or Berry Blast as his ability can devastate important plants. Sunburn and Weed Whack can also destroy him easily.
