Typical Beanstalk is a simple 3/3 for 3 unit, which gives it a pretty average statline to work with.
And its ability, as it obviously implies, has synergy with the leafy subset of plants, which includes major stand-ins of the respective tribe like Savage Spinach, Muscle Sprout and the like. But, while this supports that specific subset of plants, that subset of plants doesn't really have a real/serious competitive presence or strategy, really.
So, really, this card may have a place in said deck, but the deck isn't particularly any good. Though, it has a fine statline, so it isn't completely unplayable. Being relatively accessible and having a decent statline to work with, this could find some use in more budgeted mega-grow decks, but otherwise, any real competitive deck would never consider this. This is simply outclassed by many 3 cards in the game and doesn't really fit into any competent decks.
In summary, this card is a considerable option if you plan to develop a leafy deck, but leafy decks aren't exactly a very developed strategy at the moment, so that isn't recommended. Though, while being an uncommon card and having a playable statline, it has some utility in less expensive decks, but that's really it.
Typical Beanstalk is no different from your ordinary unit, it doesn't pose any specialized constant ability, or any major presence in any real strategy, so really, there's not a lot to be worried about aside from being a bit more tricky to remove due to its unique statline. Otherwise, you would go about how most static units would be removed.
- It reuses Magic Beanstalk's older look before the Colossal Fossils update.
- Its description also vaguely alludes to Magic Beanstalk as well.
