Plants vs. Zombies Heroes Wall-Knight deck building resource guide

An all-in-one resource for Wall-Knight players struggling with their decks.

Wall-Knight is not the flashiest hero in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, but he certainly gets the job done. This is especially the case with longer games.

With Guardian and Solar cards at his disposal, Wall-Knight is able to accumulate Sun quickly and build up a defense even the most solid Nut can be proud of.

With the defensive power of Wall-Nuts (and their ilk) along with the extra Sun accumulation of Sunflowers, this hero can bring out powerful high Sun cost cards, heal a fair amount of damage, and defend his way to victory.

Wall-Knight's big detractor is both types of cards' lack of Strength buffs. There are certainly a few, as we will see below, but this guy is all about defending and striking when the time is right.

This hero is best suited to decks focused around Nut cards, which give protection to the healing and Sun-accumulating cards so well known in Solar decks.

Wall-Knight's arsenal in its entirety is here in detail to help you plan your decks, with important to remember card combinations highlighted, all available cards and their details laid out. This guide should be used as a reference -- and is best used with other deck building resources to come up with an effective deck and gameplan.

Superpowers

Signature Superpower (Only Wall-Knight can use this Superpower)

Uncrackable

Notable card combinations

These combinations are laid out with the most important card bolded and followed by a plus sign (+) with cards the important card will either affect or be affected by. You can look at the card specifics in the tables below this section.

Below each combination briefly explains why these cards are good friends. Always remember card synergy when building a deck.

    • Spineapple gives Plants with no Strength +2 when played. Play Hibernating Beary first, then Spineapple to give the Beary a head start.
  • Magnifying Grass + Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Metal Petal Sunflower

  • Morning Glory + Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Metal Petal Sunflower

Don't ignore these cards if you have them!

These cards may not all have synergy on their side like the ones mentioned above, but they are among the best cards Wall-Knight can use.

Morning Glory - With a cost of only 1 Sun, 2 Strength/2 Health by default, and even better stats when you have more than 6 Sun, two of this card can be a real havoc to opponents late game if you're not stacking Sunflowers and early if you are.

Pismashio - This Plant may be dull but a 2 Strength/3 Health Plant for 2 Sun isn't a bad deal. Consider this card for early game if you're going the Smackadamia route.

Steel Magnolia - This baby not only grants itself and whatever Plant is in its lane +2 Health, it grants +2 Health to every plant next door. A great card for decks heavy in Team-Up cards.

Jack O' Lantern - If you're lucky and your opponent doesn't destroy this Plant as soon as it's out, you'll basically get a guaranteed 5 damage in on the Zombie Hero between two turns.

Briar Rose - An amazing addition to a Power Flower-oriented deck, maybe not so much Wall-Knight. But worth a mention.

Tough Beets - A great lategame card, especially with Wall-Knight and his array of Wall-Nuts with Team-Up. Play him only when every other lane is stacked for the best results.

Laser Bean - A 6 Sun cost is in no way too high for a 4 Strength Plant with Strikethrough. Put this guy behind a Nut and watch him do his Zombie-whomping magic.

Cornucopia - An amazing addition to a Wall-Knight deck. Chances are you're going to be reaching 10 Sun anyway between your defense and Sun-giving plants like Sunflowers. Cornucopia can turn a game around completely.

Soul Patch - Another amazing card, this time effectively keeping your hero alive. If you have one, use it.

Grave Buster - (Trick) The big benefit of Zombies with the Gravestone ability for a Zombie Hero player is that you, the Plant Hero player, can't see what is in the grave before the battle phase starts. The Grave Buster wipes those pesky Gravestones out before they turn into a problem.

Wall-Nut Bowling - (Trick) Absolutely amazing offensive Trick that does 6 damage to each Ground lane. Another late game monster.

Squash - (Trick) Just destroys any Zombie regardless of Health. Great for late game (Wall-Knight's time to shine).
