Primal Potato Mine can destroy any turn 1 play excluding Planetary Gladiator and Cat Lady, and it is one of the few cards that can remove Quickdraw Con Man completely on turn 1. However, as it does not have the Team-Up trait, you will have to rely on only it to do damage there, unlike Potato Mine. This essentially makes it very similar to Bonk Choy, except for the fact that your opponent can't save their zombie by destroying it beforehand.
Primal Potato Mine is a powerful removal card early on in the game that can destroy tough 1-brain zombies such as Iron Boarder and Arm Wrestler, so it is advised to treat it with caution. Although there is nothing you can do if your opponent plays it to intercept a zombie on turn 1, you can either play tricks or a disposable zombie to basically waste it if Primal Potato Mine is on an empty lane a bit later in the game.
- Like its original counterpart in Plants vs. Zombies 2, Primal Potato Mine says, "SPUD-OOP!" when destroyed. However, he no longer deals splash damage.
