He has the Amphibious trait, and his ability gives a selected plant on the field -1/-1 when he is played. His closest plant counterpart is Kernel-Pult.

Haunting Ghost is a cheap way to destroy a 1-health plant before your opponent can boost it. You can also play him in the water to prevent the plant hero from easily destroying him due to his Amphibious trait.
This can essentially replace Pied Piper as this zombie can choose a plant to get -1/-1 instead of the plants in his lane. However, unlike Pied Piper, he has no synergy with other zombies as he is in the monster tribe.
Stat wise, he is very weak. Anything that can damage him will destroy him. Because of this, your opponent is most likely going to play him in the aquatic lane. Also, you will not be able to do anything about his ability either, but you can play multiple threats to force the opponent to decide which plant is the most threatening. Do not Bounce him, unless you are going to defeat the zombie hero, since your opponent can then replay this to weaken another plant again.
