The Classic Freeze Rose! (90% Winrate in Diamond)

Update 04/11/2017: Added card links! Not only do they make it more colorful and interesting, but will allow players who dont know what card im talking about can hover over the link and check its name, stats, rarity and more! The only one i couldnt add was 2nd Best Taco of All Time and any and all Set 3 cards. 2nd Best Taco was because the link wasnt getting placed correctly. I think its my typing, but idk atm, and of course all Set 3 cards cant be added YET since the cards havent been added to the database. I will soon add pictures as well. Expect card links to be added to all my other deck guides soon, alongside images too!

Intro

Hey everyone! Im Plants10000, a sorta veteran in PvZ Heroes, and today i bring you a revamped version of the classic Freeze Rose by Tryhard, with Set 2 cards included.

Freeze Rose hasnt seen a new version by Tryhard since the release of SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero., which is rather sad as it is a pretty fun and interesting deck. In some ways, this deck represents Rose´s playstyle pretty well, which is tactics. When i was thinking of a Rose deck to make i couldnt make a Flower deck since i have 0 Briar RoseWhen a Zombie hurts a Flower, destroy that Zombie., so i needed to think more.

Ramp was also out, as i had very little late game strong cards like CornucopiaWhen played: Make a random Plant in each other lane. and Dark Matter DragonfruitAmphibious, Splash Damage 6 Zombie Tricks cost 6 Brains more.. Freeze Rose was one of my few reliable options, as i also got interest in the deck and wanted to see a revamped version. I guess this is it then.

Overview

If you have ever played Freeze Rose in your life, you know pretty well what to do: Boost SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen. to inmense Attack and then demolishing your opponent with it. What most players do is add SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen. and freezing staples like Chilly PepperWhen played: Freeze a Zombie. and Iceberg LettuceFreeze a Zombie., but with this one we bring Winter SquashWhen a Zombie becomes frozen, destroy that Zombie. and Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant. as great helpers to win. Winter SquashWhen a Zombie becomes frozen, destroy that Zombie. destroys a zombie everytime its frozen while on the field and Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant. allows reusing of Chilly PepperWhen played: Freeze a Zombie. and The Great ZucchiniAmphibious - When played: Transform all Zombies into 1/1 Zombies.. The difference to Tryhard´s version is the lack of Jolly HollyAmphibious When played: Freeze Zombies next door., which i couldnt include since i had none, and Cool BeanWhen played: Freeze all Gravestones., who will help as both a counter to Gravestones and as another freezing plant. While he may seem less useful, think again! SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. is our anti-trick as well, and has great stats so he cant get defeated easily, and finally thanks to the buff to Sow Magic BeansShuffle four Magic Beanstalks into your deck. Draw a card. where it draws a card we can have the powerful 4/4 for 1 Magic Beanstalks as removal and pressure. We will get to everything once we get to the next section…

The Cards

x4 Iceberg LettuceFreeze a Zombie.A freezing staple. Simple to use but hard to use EFFECTIVELY. Make sure to use them if you have a Winter SquashWhen a Zombie becomes frozen, destroy that Zombie. and a high value or high threat zombie on the board that you need to destroy. Try not to use them alone without a SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen. as they cant be reused unlike Chilly PepperWhen played: Freeze a Zombie..

x4 SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen.: Our main win condition. Use all the freeze tools and cards you have to get it to huge amounts of Attack. One big thing you need to consider however is what cards the zombie hero may have, as heroes like Super Brainz and Rustbolt have easy, 1 cost ways to deal with it, while any Brainy hero has Rocket ScienceDestroy a Plant that has 4 Strength or more. to deal with it. Make sure to know what your opponent may or may not have to counter her, then start boosting her once you are SURE they dont have many ways to remove it.

Against heroes like Rustbolt, Super Brainz, Immorticia, Prof. Brainstorm: Try to keep it at 3 ATK while you find what they could have to remove it, and if they do have it. If they already used it then feel free to boost her. Rustbolt cant get rid of 3 ATK plants easily, so getting her to 3 ATK early on will cause alot of pressure.

Against heroes like Neptuna, Brain Freeze and The Smash: The Smash can deal with her while shes below 4 ATK, but after that he has little to no ways of dealing with her, so get her ATK up fast. For the others get her ATK up quick too, as her base HP of 2 wont help.

Against heroes like Impfinity, Z-mech, Boogaloo: Get her HP up FAST. Many of these heroes have easy ways to defeat her even without boosting, so getting her HP up will help early on. Be careful of Boogaloo´s EvaporateDestroy a damaged Plant. Draw a card. as it can put you on a bad situation if you dont have cards.

Generally, have a backup plan if SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen. gets destroyed, which is why we have SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. and Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant. as good damage dealers and walls.

 

x4 Sow Magic BeansShuffle four Magic Beanstalks into your deck. Draw a card.: With the buff to these now that it gives a card when played, we can use it to cycle our deck and keep a good hand and good pace. The 4/4 1 cost Beanstalks are also great to apply pressure and card draw.

x3 2nd Best Taco of All Time: Healing source when we are low on health and need more time to setup. Generally if the zombie hero is very aggro and lowers our health quickly, this will come in handy to keep us stay in the game for a little longer and give card draw. With how the deck takes some time to setup, this will come in so handy in giving more time, as we will take hits early on if we dont get the right hand.

x4 Chilly PepperWhen played: Freeze a Zombie.Another Freeze deck stable. With Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant. here we can use this 8 TIMES, but considering how at least 1 or 2 will die per game, it lowers to 7 or 6 times, depending on how many Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant. you get in your hand or mulligan, which is still great and its good even without Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant. bouncing it.

x4 Cool BeanWhen played: Freeze all Gravestones.: And here we have the only Set 2 card in here, and once again its a Freeze deck staple. Now that Winter SquashWhen a Zombie becomes frozen, destroy that Zombie. destroys gravestones if Cool BeanWhen played: Freeze all Gravestones. freezes them and Winter SquashWhen a Zombie becomes frozen, destroy that Zombie. is on the board, we can use it as a hard counter to Gravestone decks and Mixed-Up GravediggerWhen played: Each Zombie hides in a Gravestone. Mix them up randomly.. Even without Winter SquashWhen a Zombie becomes frozen, destroy that Zombie. its still great as we can use it as a staller.

x4 Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant.: Great 3 cost 3/4 and allows reusing our plant abilities, like Chilly PepperWhen played: Freeze a Zombie. or Cool BeanWhen played: Freeze all Gravestones.. Even on Turn 3 alone its great as a 3 ATK plant is hard to take out without wasting Superpowers, which if the Zombie hero uses one on him, is a good trade.

x4 SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero.: Anti-Trick. His great 3/3 stats help against heroes who cant deal well with 3 ATK plants like Rustbolt. Put multiple of these on the board and SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen. will be rather safe from Tricks at the fear of damage, as it pressures the block meter.

x3 Whack-a-ZombieDestroy a Zombie with 3 Strength or less.: The almighty Turn 3 “destroyer of most of the meta” card. Can destroy Stegosaurus and Team MascotStart of turn: All Sports Zombies get +1/+1. dry on Turn 3, and any other annoying threats on the board. Great card and i think Solar decks should run 2 or 3 for safety.

x4 Winter SquashWhen a Zombie becomes frozen, destroy that Zombie.: Destroys anything frozen, including Gravestones. Great wall and even better against Mixed-Up GravediggerWhen played: Each Zombie hides in a Gravestone. Mix them up randomly., as with a Cool BeanWhen played: Freeze all Gravestones. it can completely destroy everything for a 7 sun Combo. Make sure to use him alongside your freezing tricks and plants when you have a SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen. , as she will benefit from the freeze while Winter SquashWhen a Zombie becomes frozen, destroy that Zombie. destroys everything.

x2 The Great ZucchiniAmphibious - When played: Transform all Zombies into 1/1 Zombies.: Simple late game card. Great stats and great ability. If the Zombie hero has built a strong board and we are about to lose, this can completely change the tide of battle where it will put us on the favor by giving a 7/7 on the board, while the zombie hero gets all his buffed up or dangerous zombies turn into 1/1 zombies. Make sure to use him with a full, dangerous board or in the water lane if you are about to win and need some more damage. Try not to use him alone as well.

Mulligan

Get your basics: SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen. + one of your freezing cards. If you cant find it go for Sow Magic BeansShuffle four Magic Beanstalks into your deck. Draw a card. and SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. to set up a good board and chip away while you look for her.

Against heroes that cant deal with 3 ATK plants: SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. and Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant. are your best options, with Card draw to find your basic Freeze cards.

DONT.KEEP.ZUCCHINI: Having a 9 cost on your hand early will not help as you will have less options, and without Ramp its a dead card. Make sure to Mulligan it away.

Against Hearty heroes: Look for your 3 ATK cards and Whack-a-ZombieDestroy a Zombie with 3 Strength or less.. Team MascotStart of turn: All Sports Zombies get +1/+1. and especially Stegosaurus are huge threats that are most of the time played early on, so get one of these on your starting hand to get rid of them easily.

The Perfect Hand: SnowdropThis gets +2/+2 when a Zombie is frozen. + one of your Freezing cards, 3 ATK plant (SportacusWhen a Zombie Trick is played, do 2 damage to the Zombie Hero. or, if you have something like Chilly PepperWhen played: Freeze a Zombie.Rescue RadishWhen played: Bounce another Plant.) and anything else like Whack-a-ZombieDestroy a Zombie with 3 Strength or less., 2nd-Best Taco of All Time or Cool BeanWhen played: Freeze all Gravestones. depending on the hero you are facing.

Replacements/Additions

Cool BeanWhen played: Freeze all Gravestones. = Jolly HollyAmphibious When played: Freeze Zombies next door.: You will lose your hard counter to Gravestones, but will give you a 4/1 that can freeze 2 zombies not on gravestones, but on adjacent lanes. They really are interchangable if you think about it, as one gives you more Gravestone advantage, while the other gives you Zombies on Field advantage.

Sow Magic BeansShuffle four Magic Beanstalks into your deck. Draw a card. = Removal (LawnmowerDestroy a Zombie on the Ground. or Water BalloonsA Zombie gets -1/-1. If you made at least 6 Sun this turn, it gets -2/-2 instead.): You lose potential card draw and early game card draw at the expense of more removal options.

The Great Zucchini = Literally anything: Add whatever! Want Ramp? Add some Sun-ShroomTeam-Up Start of turn: You get +1 Sun this turn and this transforms into a Sun-Shroomier. or Solar WindsEnd of Turn: If there are no Zombies here, make a Sunflower here.. Need environments? Add some Environment to fit your playstyle, like Solar WindsEnd of Turn: If there are no Zombies here, make a Sunflower here. for Ramp or Bog of EnlightenmentAmphibious Plants here get +2 Attack.  Non-Amphibious Zombies here get -2 Attack. for stalling. You do lose late game potential and no way to deal with huge threats late game.

The Verdict

Freeze Rose is still viable, but requires to know things like the cards the hero could use and their strategy. You will need to know what deck the Zombie hero is playing and adapt to that. Knowing when to use something against what hero is also important.

This is a deck that will teach you good things to apply to all decks, and i definitely recommend you try it if you are looking for something new or to revisit an old classic

Anyways, the next deck ima tackle may be one of my 1st few, and in a revamped way! I cant wait to start on the next one.

Thanks for reading and good luck everyone!

    The sad thing is that I think this deck looks REAL cool. (Pun not intended) I don’t have the sparks to get these cards. For example, I missed the ENTIRE sportacus event, and I can’t buy a 2nd great zucchini, and I don’t have any cool beans. That’s only 9 cards, yet I need 12,000 sparks to get them. Since I am a F2P Player, that scares me. Could you make some kind of viable budget deck for me?
