Strategies

With

Since Trash Can Zombie is invulnerable to all attacks when revealed, you should play him either in front of a plant to stall a turn while damaging that plant further or any empty lane to hit your opponent for 2 damage.

Additionally, he can take out most weak plants, so using him to guarantee a kill can be useful. If plants like Wild Berry and Carrotillery are threats to you, you can use Trash Can Zombie to block their attacks and subsequently destroy them. Trash Can Zombie can also be a good counter to Re-Peat Moss, as Trash Can Zombie has the Gravestone trait, and combined with his ability, he can block Re-Peat Moss for an entire turn. However, Grass Knuckles can play Grave Buster and Gardening Gloves instead, so beware.

Against

Trash Can Zombie is vulnerable to instant-kill tricks like Squash, Lawnmower, and Whack-a-Zombie, and stat-lowering tricks like Weed Whack (which turns Trash Can Zombie into a useless 1-health wall), but only after the Fight! phase if In-Crypted was not used. Briar Rose and Winter Squash's abilities can destroy Trash Can Zombie as well, so do not rely on Trash Can Zombie when trying to destroy them. Grave Buster also poses a threat to Trash Can Zombie, as it is the only card that can destroy it on the same turn the latter is played.

If you predict Trash Can Zombie being played, play a weak plant such as Small-Nut or Peashooter to waste his ability.
