Card description

"I could destroy everything you hold dear. It wouldn't be hard."

Update history

Update 1.8.23

  • Quotation marks were added to the start and end of its description.



Doom-Shroom is effective at clearing the field of zombies that have 4 strength or more, allowing you to regain control of the field, unlike Shamrocket that only works on a single zombie. However, it can also destroy all of your plants that have 4 strength or more, and since allied tricks can bypass the untrickable trait you must carefully consider the value of the trade.

While being able to destroy multiple powerful zombie fighters, such as Zombot Sharktronic Sub or Wannabe Hero with just 5 sun needed, it also destroys stronger plant fighters, such as Kernel Corn or The Great Zucchini, which can make this trick a mixed bag.

Due to this problem, try to use this card as a last resort, when your opponent is overwhelming you with a multiple amount of stronger zombie fighters. This trick is best used to counter Zombot 1000, Bad Moon Rising, and Gargantuars' Feast. It can also work really well if you don't play multiple plants with 4 or more strength, such as when using Pineclone rush decks with Spudow.

Generally, Citron and Beta-Carrotina are the best heroes to use Doom-Shroom with as most of their cards involve using plants with 3 strength or less, especially with a well-organized bean deck. Wall-Knight is also an option, as he has some powerful plants that have 3 strength or less, such as Power Flower and Briar Rose.

When playing as Grass Knuckles or Spudow, however, consider carefully before putting Doom-Shoom into their decks as most of their decks involve high-strength cards or cards that can boost plants' stats. If you prefer to bring a card that can destroy zombies with the same amount of strength without any damage on your plants, Shamrocket is an alternative.

Avoid using this trick immediately after all your lanes have been filled with Cornucopia, as you may destroy that plant itself as well as some of the newly created plants with Cornucopia's ability. However, if you want to activate the abilities of plants such as Grapes of Wrath or Guacodile, this could be a good choice.

Alongside, avoid playing this after playing plants boosted by Onion Rings since it will destroy all of them. Note that while Doom-Shroom does not affect UntrickableAltBig.pngUntrickable zombies, it affects UntrickableAltBig.pngUntrickable plants, so using Umbrella Leaf to protect your plants from this is useless.


While playing as the zombie hero, this trick can easily punish the player for playing powerful fighters. It is important to be careful while facing against PvZH Guardian Icon.pngGuardian heroes, as they might use this at any time and destroy your strongest zombies. Try to use powerful zombies with 3 strength or less, such as Barrel Roller Zombie and Foot Soldier Zombie.

If you need to deploy a strong zombie but also want to avoid the risk of Doom-Shroom destroying it, you can use Teleport or Teleportation Zombie to play it in the tricks phase or use Parasol Zombie to give your zombies the UntrickableAltBig.pngUntrickable trait, but primarily only as a PvZH Brainy Icon.pngBrainy hero.

Make sure you do not boost too many of your zombies over 4 strength when facing a PvZH Guardian Icon.pngGuardian hero, as there is a chance that your opponent will use this trick during the Plants Play phase, although it is a particularly difficult card for players to get.
