It is best to use this card when there are multiple sports zombies on the field, otherwise only he will be protected from damage.
A good combo with this zombie is the Team Mascot as they both provide some type of boost to sports zombies. Zombie Coach will protect the sports zombies from damage for a turn, while Team Mascot will boost them at the start of the next turn.
Rustbolt can use Teleport on Zombie Coach during the Zombie Tricks phase, which will protect all sports zombies and surprise the plant hero. Rustbolt can also use this with more zombies such as Pool Shark, Mountain Climber, and especially Brain Vendor, which he can use to easily swarm the field due to his ability. Additionally, Neptuna can use In-Crypted on the Zombie Coach to reactivate his ability at the start of the Zombie Tricks phase on the next turn.
Using this in tandem with Planetary Gladiator will result in total invulnerability for the turn, unless Planetary Gladiator is destroyed.
Avoid Bouncing this zombie as your opponent can play this zombie again, and it doesn't help remove the shielded effect on zombies anyway. Instant-kill cards can be used to destroy the sports zombies, as they can still be destroyed by plants like Briar Rose and tricks like Lawnmower or Squash. Unfortunately, this isn't an option for Captain Combustible, so he must simply remove all sports zombies before this can be played, or suffer the consequences.
