Undying Pharaoh is a premium legendary zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Hearty class. He costs 6 to play, and has 4/6. He does not have any traits, and his ability prevents the zombie hero from being defeated while he is on the field. Any damage done to the zombie hero when their health is at 1 does not hurt them or charge their Super-Block Meter. This ability persists until all Undying Pharaohs are removed from the field.
The word "de-Nile" in his description is a pun on the word "denial," and the Nile river, a river found in Egypt, which is the longest river in the world. In Ancient Egypt, the Nile River was considered to be very important.

If the Plants think they're going to beat the Undying Pharaoh, they're in de-Nile.
Due to the fact that Undying Pharaoh is only useful when your zombie hero is low on health, it is advised that you only play him when the hero is left with five health or less. The number of brains he costs to use this is also quite low, compared to other zombies such as Octo Zombie, so the zombie hero can save a few brains late game when using this.
To prevent the plant hero from destroying Undying Pharaoh during the Plants Play phase (via instant-kill cards, for example), the player can either use Mixed-Up Gravedigger as Neptuna or Teleport as Rustbolt. Keep in mind that the plant hero can do direct damage to the zombie hero instead, so watch out for Mega-Grow and Kabloom heroes. You should also watch out for Strikethrough plants, as their attacks ignore the gravestone and hit you directly.
While it is on the field, take the opportunity to heal your zombie hero by playing Medic, as you cannot lose while the Undying Pharaoh is present. Rustbolt and The Smash can use Heroic Health at this point as well. Increasing his strength and/or health is also a good idea, as this allows the zombie to stay longer on the field, as well as having more turns to keep the hero alive. You can boost Undying Pharaoh with tricks such as Vitamin Z or Camel Crossing. If the player is playing as Z-Mech or Rustbolt, Rock Wall can easily give this zombie more health. The Smash and Neptuna can use Possessed on Undying Pharaoh to give him a small health boost and Frenzy.
This card can also be used as bait, as most opponents will prioritize destroying him. Protecting this should be taken note of, especially if the plant hero busts out powerful plants against them. Rocket Science and Locust Swarm should easily take care of major threats, while Rolling Stone and Weed Spray can help with weaker units. If the player is Neptuna, Smoke Bomb can be a big help, as it will move the Undying Pharaoh to a poorly defended lane. Also as Neptuna, if your health is low and you have an Undying Pharaoh, it is recommended not to use In-Crypted on him during the Zombie Tricks phase, as Undying Pharaoh cannot prevent the zombie hero from being defeated when he is in a Gravestone.
You can also shield him if he is threatened by a strong plant with cards such as Escape through Time or Zombot Battlecruiser 5000, preventing you from losing for the entire turn unless he is destroyed by Briar Rose's ability.
Spring Bean and Jumping Bean completely nullify the ability of the Undying Pharaoh. Toadstool, Squash, Shamrocket, and Doom-Shroom will also immediately rid you of this zombie, although the latter also destroys all your plants that have more than 4, so be wary when using it. Gardening Gloves somewhat can help you in this case, because Undying Pharaoh mostly will be played in empty lanes. This zombie can also just be destroyed using powerful attacks, mainly due to his high brain cost in comparison to his stats at the time he is usually played, Undying Pharaoh can be taken out with attacks from plants such as Super-Phat Beets.
