Typical Beanstalk is a 4 plant with 4/4, meaning that it has average stats. But unfortunately, while Typical Beanstalk does boast good base stats, there are many other plants that can achieve higher stats if kept alive for only a few turns.
While its ability to draw a card is the more useful aspect of this plant, you have to play it next to a leafy plant to activate it. So this card isn't necessarily very good, but if you do want to use it, you have to use it in a deck that focuses a lot on leafy plants like Lily Pad, Muscle Sprout, and Savage Spinach, because otherwise, there isn't much use to this. But even with its ability, there are better ways to draw or Conjure cards. If you want to activate Dino-Roar abilities, the Mega-Grow class has plenty of better cards that can do so.
So overall, Typical Beanstalk isn't really recommended in any deck from the start (unless you lack any better cards) because it relies on a very limited tribe of synergy, and from a competitive standpoint, it also suffers a lot from being way too costly to find real use. Leafy synergy is normally not where you look to draw cards, especially at such a late point in the game.
Typical Beanstalk's raw stats are sufficient enough to bring a few zombies down, so you should play cards like Rocket Science if one shows up on the field and becomes a bit of an annoyance. As for its ability, try to destroy any leafy plants on the field, because it gives the plant hero a card, allowing Dino-Roar cards to cause more trouble. Other than that, this shouldn't be too hard to bring down.
