Wizard is a playable Zombie class in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. He is a Support class and specializes in supporting his fellow zombie allies in many ways using his magical potions, from using potions to make them invincible to hitching rides on Zombies in a ball form and buffing their attacks.
Wizard could be unlocked in the Luck O' the Zombie festival Prize Map, as the final reward. If the player was unable to unlock Wizard from that prize map, he is available to purchase from Rux for 500,000 coins or 1,000 rainbow stars.
Wizards aid their allies with tricky magicness. They hover above a zombie to power them up and use potions to make them immortal.
Wizard's primary weapon is the Orbacadorbra, which is a charge up weapon.
Its uncharged shots fire semi-automatically at a slow rate of fire and deal 18 damage (20 critical). It consumes 1 round of ammo per shot.
When charged, it creates a big, damaging, AOE projectile (the AOE is attached to the projectile). It moves at a moderate speed and will bounce if it hits walls, the floor, etc. It can pass through plants and lasts a limited time. It deals 4 damage at a rapid pace to plants in the weapon's AOE. It only has one charge and consumes 4 rounds of ammo.

Wizard is primarily suited towards a supportive playstyle, staying with his teammates and providing buffs with Co-Star and Zee-lixer.
His primary weapon, the Orbacadorba, can be fired in two states: uncharged and charged. Its uncharged state is effective at mid to long range and functions in a similar manner to Electric Slide's Boogie Bolt. The weapon's charged state fires a large orb that rapidly damages plants caught in it, and is effective for crowd control and suppressing a route to an objective.
His Zee-lixer provides an invulnerability effect when used in a supportive manner and heavily slows down the mobility of plants caught in its radius when used in a more offensive manner. The ability is very effective when in a choke point, as the invulnerability it provides can give a massive advantage to your teammates.
It's also effective against high damage abilities like Chili Bean Bomb and Fung Fu as you and your teammates can essentially tank the damage of those abilities whilst not compromising your firepower (as is the case with abilities like Outta Fight!). Keep in mind that the invulnerability effect only lasts for a very short amount of time, so do not be overconfident when using this ability.
Spell Disaster is Wizard's most effective way of dealing damage to enemies and can be especially effective at crowd control as it fires several homing orbs in a 360 degree angle. Keep in mind however that you are vulnerable during the abilities' initial animation so it can be useful to use Zee-lixer before initiating this ability.
Co-Star is Wizard's best support ability, as it provides buffs to both himself and his teammates. When hooked up to a teammate he gains a new weapon, the Shooting Star, which varies in damage output and rate of fire depending on whether Starz Align has been achieving (done by facing the same direction as your teammate).
It's recommended to always remain in Starz Align as the Shooting Star is very weak in its base form. The Wizard's other two abilities are also available even when in Co-Star mode. One should also eject from Co-Star mode when a teammate is about to be vanquished and Zee-lixer is available, as the stun effect from being ejected from a vanquished enemy leaves you very vulnerable.
