Arguably one of the strongest cards in the game, Quickdraw Con Man is a very strong card. He has one of the highest health to cost ratio in the entire game for the zombie side, with the {{PvZH Icon|bullseye}}'''Bullseye''' trait and an anti-draw ability and all these for just 1 brain.

Arguably one of the strongest cards in the game, Quickdraw Con Man is a very strong card. It has the 2nd highest health to cost ratio in the entire game (With number one being Wall-Nut), has Bull's Eye and an anti-draw ability. Now that's a lot for a simple 1 brain zombie.
   
Quickdraw Con Man is easily an auto-include, meaning he is a card that you can throw into nearly every crazy deck. There is not too much strategy to say about this card because of his insanely powerful and cheap nature, which means there is definitely some decks that can use it more than just a good 1 cost card.

Not exactly the most popular strategy, but mill (A strategy that tries to fill your opponent's hand to a lethal extent, making it so that your opponent cannot superblock) is a strategy that this definitely gain some use in utilizing him. Due to his anti-draw nature, it helps other crazy cards like Exploding Fruitcake and Unexpected Gifts. It might be just 1 damage, but that is still worthwhile with the {{PvZH Icon|bullseye}}'''Bullseye''' trait. With his cheap cost, he is pretty easy to deploy and use.

There is also utilizing his {{PvZH Icon|bullseye}}'''Bullseye''' trait for more aggressive playing above the persistent effect. Both {{PvZH Class|Beastly}} ([[Electric Boogaloo]] normally) and {{PvZH Class|Hearty}} ([[Z-Mech]] normally) have a large assortment of stat-boosting cards, but {{PvZH Class|Hearty}}'s support probably is more benefiting to Quickdraw Con Man because of {{PvZH Class|Hearty}}'s stat-boosting cards being cheaper, allowing easier deployment for a fast and aggressive play alongside its overall board support. Also, as Quickdraw Con Man can tank a few hits with his amazing health, {{PvZH Class|Hearty}} would definitely benefit this card greatly.

There's also utilizing this card's bull's eye for more aggressive playing above the persistent effect. Beastly and Hearty have a large assortment of buffing, but Hearty's support probably is more benefiting to Quickdraw Con Man because Hearty supports very fast and aggressive play, with its overall board support. Also, it's a pretty healthy card, Hearty would definitely like this card. Bull's Eye, persistent effect and easily great with many cheap buffing cards in their class. Beastly on the other hand is more of a singular buff, they're often expensive that way. That probably wouldn't work too well with Beastly if you're looking to use Quickdraw Con Man for his Bull's Eye. Only thing that could possibly work is Area 22, but aside from that, most buffing cards in Beastly just feel out of place, and don't benefit Quickdraw Con Man enough.

The only card that will work well with him is [[Area 22]], as other cards might set you back in the game, especially if the opponent has hard removal cards like {{PvZHLink|Squash}} and [[Shamrocket]].

Brainy can't exactly do much with it aside from using it alongside Regifting Zombie, which is pretty little synergy all together, but that's still enough damage to feel worth it. Since Regifting Zombie's stats are pretty good for a 2 cost, and draws enough card to make Quickdraw Con Man's damage mean a bit more, but it kind of just ends there.
   
{{PvZH Class|Brainy}} heroes (normally [[Professor Brainstorm]]) cannot exactly do much with him aside from using him alongside [[Regifting Zombie]] for immediate ability activation, and [[Wormhole Gatekeeper]] for a more consistent ability activation.

And arguably the best use of Quickdraw Con Man goes to Sneaky, not only is this card insanely good but it's also a pirate. And seeing that this is has an ability that hits the plant hero, this can work great with Swashbuckler Zombie and not all that great with Captain Flameface, surprisingly. It's a simple 1 cost pirate with a super high stat line and synergistic ability. You couldn't ask for more in a 1 cost pirate than it being sneaky, but Impfinity is known for having the best pirate synergy in the game, so that doesn't really matter all that much. You don't even need to use Quickdraw Con Man strictly as a pirate synergy card, it just works so well with Impfinity because it's extremely cheap, meaningful, and persistently strong, which sounds like something any competitive aggro/zoo deck Impfinity could use.
   
For {{PvZH Class|Sneaky}} heroes (normally [[Impfinity]]), he actually does not have much synergy other than '''Bouncing''' plants blocking him from attacking the plant hero for unblockable damage (which is still not as good). However, if the {{PvZH Class|Sneaky}} hero is running a pirate deck alongside {{PvZHLink|Swashbuckler Zombie}} and {{PvZHLink|Captain Flameface}}, Quickdraw Con Man is a valuable addition due to his Pirate tribe. Impfinity can also use him as bait for cards that are meant to deal with aggro decks, allowing him to rush down the opponent.
+
But returning to the main point, Quickdraw Con Man is a very strong card, so it doesn't necessarily need support to keep itself sustainable. It's simply a cheap, expendable card with a powerful effect. Hearty and Sneaky uses this the best to its advantage.
 
Though, as said earlier, Quickdraw Con Man is a very strong card, so he does not necessarily need support to keep himself sustainable. He is simply a cheap, expendable card with a powerful effect. In conclusion, {{PvZH Class|Hearty}} heroes can use this the best to their advantage.

Quickdraw Con Man can be very difficult to face. You probably want to put something in front of it as soon possible with stats of at least 2{{PvZH Icon|strength}}/2{{PvZH Icon|health}} such as {{PvZHLink|Blooming Heart}}, so that they trade (they each destroy each other). However, be warned as Crazy heroes often have a trick up their sleeves to aid Quickdraw Con Man, so they might have a Bungee Plumber or a trick from their other class.

Quickdraw Con Man can be very difficult to face. You probably want to put something in front of it, like a 1 cost 2/2, so that it trades, but Crazy often has a trick up their sleeve, so they might have a Bungee Plumber.
   
If you can take him out right away with something cheap, go ahead. Superpowers are probably the least recommended to use, but if that is your only immediate option, it is alright. He is a pretty strong 1 cost that is pretty hard to handle.

Revision as of 18:32, January 21, 2018

Quickdraw Con Man is a colossal super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Crazy IconCrazy class. He costs 1BrainPvZH to play, and has 1StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH. He has the PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye trait, and his ability does 1 damage to the plant hero every time they draw a card. This ability stacks with each Quickdraw Con Man on the field, and persists until all Quickdraw Con Men are removed from the field.

Origins

His description is a reference to the proverb "forewarned is forearmed," meaning "prior knowledge of possible dangers or problems gives one a tactical advantage." It is also a pun, since "four" and "fore" are homophones.

Trivia

  • He is the first zombie with the PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye trait outside the PvZH Brainy IconBrainy class.
    • Disco-Naut is an exception, as while she gives zombies including herself the PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye trait, she does not actually have it from the start.
  • During development, he was called "Four-Armed Zombie," and had no abilities.
    • Later on in development, he was renamed to "Four-Armed Bandit," and Conjured a zombie fighter, a trick, an environment, and a superpower only when he Evolved.
    • Afterwards, they changed the Evolution to 4StrengthPvZH or more Evolution, where he had to be played on a zombie with 4StrengthPvZH or more in order to activate the ability.
    • This makes him the only card that had an Evolution ability during development and had it scrapped later.
  • He and Cat Lady have the highest health-to-brain ratios out of all zombies, at 4HeartPvZH to 1BrainPvZH.
  • If the plant hero plays a trick that draws two cards at once (Holo-Flora or Flourish), he will activate his ability once, but do 2 damage instead.
    • If a Swashbuckler Zombie is on the field, his animation will only play once, but Quickdraw Con Man will receive +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH.
    • This could be because his ability animation would be more time-consuming than it already is.
  • He is the only zombie in the game that in both the monster and pirate tribes.
  • He is the only zombie in the franchise that has four arms.
