Wormhole Gatekeeper is a galactic super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Brainy class. She costs 3 to play and has 2/5. She has the Bullseye trait, and her ability draws a card for both the plant and zombie hero at the start of every turn, starting from the turn after she is played. This ability stacks with each Wormhole Gatekeeper on the field and persists until all Wormhole Gatekeepers are removed from the field.
OriginsShe is based on a gatekeeper, a person who controls access to something.
Her description is a play on the popular quote, "Stay here and guard this with your life."
- Class: Brainy

"Stand here and guard this gate with your unlife," she was told. And that's what she's been doing ever since.

This zombie can be risky to play as both you and your opponent will draw an extra card each turn if she manages to stay alive. While this helps you when you are short of cards or to keep up with the cards in your hand, your opponent will also potentially have more choices on their strategy. However, the tight part is that this zombie has Bullseye, so the opponent has to think carefully whether to destroy her or not due to her helpful ability for both players. But overall, you can get two cards each turn or more with multiple Wormhole Gatekeepers on the field, adding more choices to your strategy.
Super Brainz has some great strategies with her, since he can use her in tandem with support cards like Pogo Bouncer and Regifting Zombie. Zombies like these have the ability to give cards to the plant hero, which can form a mill deck.
However, if you see any Dino-Roar plants in general, avoid playing this zombie as they will activate their abilities an extra time each turn.
This zombie can be situational as you can get an extra card each turn in exchange for unblockable damage. But if you are very low on cards and/or have very high health for your hero, it is alright to keep her alive, as long as the zombie hero does not bother boosting her strength.
But if you want to avoid unblockable damage and keep her alive to draw more cards for your hero, play plants with very high health like Wall-Nut to stall her. Alternatively, lower her strength with tricks like Scorched Earth or Water Balloons to make her less of a threat. However, don't forget that the zombie hero will also draw additional cards, so if you want to stop the zombie hero from drawing more cards, aim at destroying her with Whack-a-Zombie or using Banana Bomb and Berry Blast to destroy her.
Destroy any Quickdraw Con Men, as they will whittle down your health until you are defeated.
Having a Dino-Roar plant on the field can actually help greatly if this zombie is on the board as it can get a bigger boost at the end of every turn.
