Card description

Never gets tired of the rubber chicken gag.



This is a really strong zombie. Not just because it is capable of fitting in a lot of decks if the player is skilled enough, the player can even use this zombie mid-game, and then end with a quick win.

Using it 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 will allow 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 it for the zombie tricks phase for a powerful Plant that might come in the player's way.

If you have this in your hand right at the starting turn, you can spam cheap tricks such as Bungee Plumber or Yeti Lunchbox to reduce its brain cost, then play it on the early turn on an empty lane to do 7 free damage to the plant hero.


This zombie is a tough zombie to handle and counter. Being 7StrengthPvZH/7HeartPvZH for the price varying between 0-10Brain, it is a tough zombie at any time, with its powerful bonus attack once played. Almost everything will be destroyed, unless it has a lot of health, or is shielded.

To counter it, it is preferable that the player is playing as Citron 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 effect. 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 does 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 its bonus attack when played again.




  • This, Valkyrie and the Potted Powerhouse are the only cards in the game who have an effect that only takes place while in the player's hand.
    • This is the only one of the three that is legendary.
