Intro

Hey everyone! Im Plants10000, a sorta veteran of PvZH, and today im going to show you a revamped version of one of my 1st decks on the site: Citron Nuts!

I was gonna do a revamped version since SET 2, but since the introduction of Set 3: Colossal Fossils, a lot of new cards came out, and thus i needed to test out which can be used to great effect in this deck. After much testing and playing i came up with a good deck, which is the one we will see today!

Since Set 3 cards havent been added to the site yet, i need to use replacements. Here they are:

Gravitree = Tricorn

Spineapple = Three-Nut

Overview

Theres a few changes compared to the 1st version of the deck. To start Galacta-CactusBullseye When destroyed: Do 1 damage to everything. is here, and Forget-Me-Nuts is no longer here. Planet of the GrapesWhen a Plant here hurts the Zombie Hero, draw a card. and Pear CubAmphibious When destroyed: Make a 5/4 Grizzly Pear with Amphibious here. are gone too, alongside the legendaries (The Great ZucchiniAmphibious - When played: Transform all Zombies into 1/1 Zombies. and Wall-Nut BowlingMake a 6 Health Wall-Nut with Team-Up in each Ground lane. Attack for 6 damage in those lanes.). In place of them we have Tricorn and Three-Nut, 2 great cards that will help in winning.

We have 2 win conditions here: Overwhelm with Nuts, using Mirror-NutTeam-Up - When your Nuts gets hurt, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. and Three-Nut alongside all your nuts, or PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack. and your nuts with big HP (take a shot everytime i say Nut). Whichever you choose you can use a combo of them as well. We have some great damage dealers like Galacta-CactusBullseye When destroyed: Do 1 damage to everything. and Jugger-NutArmored 1Bullseye for early game damage or to deal with zombies early on, and Health-NutThis attacks using its Health instead of its Attack. and Spikeweed SectorBefore combat here: Do 2 damage to a Zombie here. to deal with more higher health zombies and early game threats.

The Cards

x4 Galacta-CactusBullseye When destroyed: Do 1 damage to everything.: Early game pressure and damage dealer. One of the best Guardian cards both in Set 2 and in the game, as it can deal with many early game zombies like Arm WrestlerThis gets +1/+1 when a Plant enters this lane. or ZookeeperWhen you play another Pet, all Pets get +1 Attack.. Its also a great finisher due to the splash damage of 1 it deals to everything, but be careful as if you have Three-Nut on the board and you need to use it, it will kill it if it dies.

Finished the game with Galacta-Cactus´death damage, but i got damaged 1st and lost, however i still counted it as a win.

In this case i was able to use Galacta-CactusBullseye When destroyed: Do 1 damage to everything.´ Death damage to finish The Smash… BUT, for some reason the damage is dealt to the plant damage FIRST, so i lost, but if it was fixed it would be a win. Decided to count it as a win either way.

x3 Wall-NutTeam-UpEarly game wall and our main damage dealer once buffed with Three-Nut or under the effects of PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack.. Be sure not to play them early on if the zombie hero is hearty or if they arent boosted as they will get defeated easily or fall prey to a deadly Weed SprayDestroy each Plant with 2 Strength or less..

Even tho the board got destroyed by The Chickening and Evaporate, that little Wall-Nut hanged in there and won the game. Thanks to Three-Nut giving 3 ATK to Wall-NutTeam-Up they were easily able to end Boogaloo while standing alive.

x4 Jugger-NutArmored 1Bullseye: Even with all the new cards and Galacta-CactusBullseye When destroyed: Do 1 damage to everything., this guy stands tall as a great 2 drop. Having Armored 1 allows it to survive 2 attack and less zombies and helps in making good trades. Even if it tanks and takes a Superpower its a good trade as the zombie hero has used up a superpower on an easy to take out plant.

x4 Spikeweed SectorBefore combat here: Do 2 damage to a Zombie here.: Since this environment came out it has been considered one of the best Plant environments for its effect and for its great ability to control early on. Also useful to add some more damage to a zombie when you need to destroy it ASAP.

x3 Health-NutThis attacks using its Health instead of its Attack.: Will defeat Team MascotStart of turn: All Sports Zombies get +1/+1., Stegosaurus and many others dry on Turn 3 or lower. Still really good and i highly recommend you get some for your Guardian decks. Aside from that you can also use him to do damage quickly.

x4 Three-Nut: Gives any and all of our plants a base of 3 attack while hes on the board, and with it we can make our nuts and others immune to Weed SprayDestroy each Plant with 2 Strength or less. or Rolling StoneDestroy a Plant with 2 Strength or less.. Heres a neat tip: If you use Three-Nut to evolve into Tricorn, Tricorn will have 5 attack rather than 4! This is because the effect of Three-Nut takes place before applying the evolution effect. Use this if you need alot of damage quickly.

The 3 attack range is the safest place to be as a plant, since alot of heroes cant deal with them using tricks. In this case Rustbolt couldnt deal with the 3 ATK nuts and Mirror-Nuts, thus making him lose. Same case as last pic, but with Mirror-NutTeam-Up - When your Nuts gets hurt, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero.! Rustbolt has no ways to deal with 3 ATK plants unless he uses multiple combos, thus making him lose to the boosted Mirror-NutTeam-Up - When your Nuts gets hurt, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. he couldnt destroy it in time.

x4 SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero.Anti-Trick and great damage dealer. Without Forget-Me-Nuts this time around we wont be able to stall or deny tricks as hard, but even then it doesnt matter as its stats are still solid and its ability is great as it will scare away the use of tricks. 

If the zombie hero were to use 2 tricks or more, he would be defeated, and since he didnt even block the damage from either Sportacus and Wall-Nut, it was a lose-lose situation for him. This time around Neptuna kept using tricks after tricks while SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. was in the field. That and the boosted Wall-NutTeam-Uplead to a quick game.

x3 Cosmic NutWhen played: Conjure a Nut, and its attack becomes 3.Not only are the stats good, but it will give a random nut and set its attack to 3, making it invulnerable to Weed SprayDestroy each Plant with 2 Strength or less. and Rolling StoneDestroy a Plant with 2 Strength or less. early on. Use it as an evolution fodder as well.

x3 Mirror-NutTeam-Up - When your Nuts gets hurt, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero.Main win condition and for pressure. With 3/4 of our deck being nuts he will come in handy to slowly defeat the hero, and once boosted with Three-Nut theres little ways to deal with it.

x2 Doom-ShroomDestroy all Plants and Zombies with 4 Attack or more.Use it when theres a bunch of high ATK zombies. Be careful as it can destroy Tricorn if evolved.

x3 PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack.Another one of our win conditions. With our plants having big amounts of health it will wreck havoc very quickly if not dealt with quickly. Place him on the 4th lane so if it gets destroyed last it will have done its job of making your plants do damage with their health, and make sure to get his attack to 3 if possible so its hard to remove.

Thanks to Tricorn and Pecanolith, i managed to defeat this what seemed impenetrable wall of zombies. Thanks to PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack. Tricorn´s ATK became 6, which was enough to defeat the zombies in his lane and the next. Three-Nut and Wall-NutTeam-Up then finish The Smash up.With Pecanolith having 3 attack, The Smash had no way of dealing with it, thus causing lethal.

The smash wasnt able to deal with the 3 ATK PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack. because he already used this main super early on, thus giving me lethal.

 x3 Tricorn: His great stats when evolved and damage potential makes this not only another potential win condition, but a removal card thanks to it being able to attack 3 lanes at a time. Evolve him using one of your plants thats about to die or has done its effect or use, like Cosmic NutWhen played: Conjure a Nut, and its attack becomes 3..With 2 Tricorns, the zombie hero had little ways to deal with them without wasting way too many resources. 2 Tricorns on the board = total control. The Smash used his main super early on, so he wasnt able to deal with SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. or TricornTricorn destroyed his field completely afterwards.

Mulligan

Remember: Since you have 2 win conditions, you need to choose which one to use and then find the cards for them. Dont choose 2 win conditions in the same hand as it will mess you up.

For PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack.Aside from the obvious, get Wall-NutTeam-Up and Three-nut to get all of them to 3 ATK, since we dont want all of them to die to Weed SprayDestroy each Plant with 2 Strength or less. if its a Hearty hero, otherwise SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. and Cosmic NutWhen played: Conjure a Nut, and its attack becomes 3. work too.

For Mirror-NutTeam-Up - When your Nuts gets hurt, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero.Go crazy with nuts. Get Wall-NutTeam-UpCosmic NutWhen played: Conjure a Nut, and its attack becomes 3.SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. or whatever you may need for the zombie hero. For example if its Hearty get Health-NutThis attacks using its Health instead of its Attack. to deal with Team MascotStart of turn: All Sports Zombies get +1/+1.. If its Sneaky pick Spikeweed SectorBefore combat here: Do 2 damage to a Zombie here..

Perfect hand for Mirror-NutTeam-Up - When your Nuts gets hurt, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero.Mirror-NutTeam-Up - When your Nuts gets hurt, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero.Wall-NutTeam-Up, and either SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero., Three-NutGalacta-CactusBullseye When destroyed: Do 1 damage to everything. or Tricorn.

Perfect Hand for PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack.PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack., Three-Nut and either SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero.Galacta-CactusBullseye When destroyed: Do 1 damage to everything., TricornHealth-NutThis attacks using its Health instead of its Attack. or Mirror-NutTeam-Up - When your Nuts gets hurt, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. depending on the hero.

Replacements

PecanolithAll Plants and Zombies attack using their Health instead of their Attack. = Tricorn: This completely changes the deck as it will make it an OTK Tricorn deck, and will lose you a great win condition.

Jugger-NutArmored 1Bullseye = Sea-ShroomAmphibiousSame stats except without the Bullseye and Armored 1, but has amphibious which can provide Water lane pressure.

Health-NutThis attacks using its Health instead of its Attack. = Hot DateWhen played: Move a Zombie to this lane. When destroyed: Do 3 damage to a Zombie here./Pear CubAmphibious When destroyed: Make a 5/4 Grizzly Pear with Amphibious here.Both of these were on the original draft of the revamped deck, but if they play Team MascotStart of turn: All Sports Zombies get +1/+1. or Stegosaurus dry on Turn 3 you wont have answers for them.

SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. = PlanternWhile in an Environment: This gets +1/+1 and BullseyeHas good synergy with Spikeweed SectorBefore combat here: Do 2 damage to a Zombie here., but you wont have any ways to delay tricks.

Doom-ShroomDestroy all Plants and Zombies with 4 Attack or more. = ShamrocketDestroy a Zombie that has 4 Attack or more.Less group removal and can let Tricorn live if hes on the board, and its cheaper, but again its less group removal, or mass removal.

The Verdict

Citron Nut is a fun deck, and its very good too as it can deal with alot of the stuff from the meta, but you do need to know how to use your cards correctly and know when to do something. Sometimes you may need to block everything, sometimes you will need to take alot of damage early on, and sometimes you will need to sacrifice something for value. It will teach you alot and can make you a better player on the long run.

As you can see, i decided to include pictures this time around to show how i use some of the cards in-game. I have also gone back and updated some of my old guides to include more. I might update them more with pictures of games with them, but that will be for another date.

As for my next deck, im thinking of another revamped deck. Maybe even a new deck! Who knows.

As always, thanks for reading! And good luck!

    Thanks for posting this deck! I’m building and tinkering as we speak, and already feeling the good-good. Pecanolith has to be one of the most OP cards we have access to, and I’m brewing around it as much as possible.
