Strategies

With

This is a really strong zombie, not just because he is capable of fitting in a lot of decks, but because if the player is skilled enough, he/she can use this zombie mid-game to get a quick win. If you decided to bring him, you want to bring a lot of tricks, with Beam Me Up and Hail-a-Copter to make zombies during trick phase and other cheap Tricks to lower his cost.

Using him along with Paparazzi Zombie is a good strategy, as both benefit from playing tricks. Paparazzi Zombie will become more powerful after each trick is played, and Trickster will become cheaper while in the zombie hero's hand. Be aware if the plant hero has a Black-Eyed Pea on the lawn, though, as this plant will gain a buff when the zombie hero plays tricks.

Using this with Teleport allows the player to play it and Trickster for the same price as only Trickster in the zombies play phase, meaning that the player could save him for the zombie tricks phase for a powerful plant that might come in the player's way. Beware when you are playing against PvZH Smarty IconSmarty opponents as they have access to Brainana, which can prevent the player from using Teleport.

If you have this in your hand right at the starting turn, you can spam cheap tricks such as Bungee Plumber, Yeti Lunchbox, or Smoke Bomb to reduce his brain cost, then play him on the early turn on an empty lane to do 6 free damage to the plant hero. Just be warned that his ability of making it cheaper can only work if this is in your hand.

Against

This zombie is a tough zombie to handle and counter. Being 6StrengthPvZH/6HeartPvZH for the price varying between 0-10BrainPvZH, he is a tough zombie at any time, with his powerful bonus attack once played. Almost everything will be destroyed, unless he has a lot of health, or is shielded.

To counter him, a good option is to use Spudow, as his superpower is able to defeat Trickster after it's used. Citron also works well due to his superpower shielding all plants for one turn. While it may not be required, it will greatly negate this zombie's power.

Briar Rose can also be a good counter to this zombie due to its ability. Filling all Ground and Heights lanes with flowers can destroy Trickster no matter where it is played.

As a last resort, if the plant hero wants to keep the sacrifice at minimum, the player should consider using Squash if the player has it and is using the Solar class.

Generally, the player can also bounce this zombie back into the zombie hero's deck, as the price tag will be reset. However, beware that the zombie can reuse his bonus attack when played again.

Trivia

  • He is the highest costing zombie card, and the second most expensive zombie in the game, after Gargantuars' Feast.
  • He, Valkyrie and Potted Powerhouse are the only cards in the game who have an ability that only takes place while in a hero's hand.
    • Trickster is the only one of the three that is legendary, while the other two are only super-rare.
  • This is the only card so far that can lower its own cost.
  • Assuming nothing but 1 brain tricks is played until he is afforded, the earliest turn he can be played is on turn 4, which can most likely happen if you or the opponent is playing as Rustbolt, due to the amount of cheap tricks and that they do not require a zombie to use them.
  • There is a glitch where during the zombies play phase, once Trickster uses his bonus attack, he may drain the plant hero's shield bar.
