Shroom for Two Episode 68: Grave Rave

Hello, Heroes! Welcome to another gravedigging episode of Shroom for Two! We’re not digging our own graves this week - instead, we’re jamming Pogo Bouncers and Mixed-Up Gravediggers to show why Neptuna is the best Gravestone deck.

In our latest installment of Crowddecking, we break down the Gravetuna archetype into its core, its support cards, and its flex slots. We discuss how to play it, how to beat it, and how to build a deck that maximizes Enter the Battlefield abilities. 

If you’ve got decks to submit, questions to ask, or chill vibes to relax with, share them with us! Our discord channel is in the show notes below. Our email address is, and our YouTube channel is shroomfortwopodcast!

Until next time, may all your Gravediggers get maximum value.

Shroom for Two Episode 67: Every Other Podcast is Alive Inside You

Hello, Heroes! 

Welcome to another episode of Shroom for Two, where Taylor spreads the word of the new Philadelphia gospel: Did you know that all the food you’ve ever eaten is alive inside you, and that the only way to deal with that is to turn yourself into a statue? Neither did Mike! You’ll get some education on this latest nutritional trend. 

You’ll also receive some education on the subject of Frankentaur and Shieldcrusher Viking, the two main subjects of this episode. We discuss Mike’s latest video, and Taylor’s latest foray into Z-Mech go-wide beatdown. 

Do attend. 

If you’d like to send Mike and Taylor some listener mail, you can do so at, or in the PVZ Heroes Discord channel, #shroomfortwo!

Shroom for Two Episode 66: Discord Discourse

Hello, Heroes! 

Welcome to another decktacular episode of Shroom for Two! After coming down from the world’s least exciting Super Bowl, Mike and Taylor dive deep into the new, post-rebalance decks you’ve been posting in the ShroomForTwo Discord channel. We present our most-played decks since the last show - Mike’s Beta Carrotina Bog of Enlightenment deck and Taylor’s Transfiguration Molekale deck.

Then, we review several decks posted by you all. Gravestones run rampant, along with some Chompzilla midrange and Zoo-mech Flag Zombie shenanigans. We take a bite out of some custom cards, and read a very touching listener mail.

Shroom for Two Episode 65: The Great Rebalancing

Hello, Heroes!

The great rebalancing is upon us! The new balance patch has landed in PVZ Heroes, so it’s time to dive right in to the new meta. We’re diving in so deep, we recorded an entire second podcast this week! We recorded a Colossal Fossils retrospective on Wednesday, the night before the patch dropped.

When the patch arrived on Thursday, we decided to record again! Enjoy a bonus segment from future Mike, and future Taylor, on what we think the implications of the new patch will be. We talk about what we’ll be experimenting with, what we’re hoping we stop seeing, and where our question marks are.

Enjoy the balance patch, Heroes! See you on the ladder. Don’t forget to come hang out in the #ShroomForTwo channel on the PVZ Heroes Discord!

Shroom for Two Episode 64: 20Fryteen

Hello, Heroes! 

Welcome to another frytacular episode of Shroom for Two. This week, we’re examining a pair of year’s end videos from Fry ‘Em Up, the biggest PVZ Heroes YouTuber. 

He has two videos up right now that showcase his favorite plant and zombie decks for 2018. Mike and Taylor watched those videos, built some of the decks, and took them for a spin. Check them out yourselves, and tune in for our commentary! 

As a reminder, we’re moving to a biweekly show format, so there’s no show next week (Mike and Taylor will be too busy turning 30 to do a show). Next time, we hope to review some Gravestone Neptuna decks, so please send yours to!

We’re hoping to do a listener mailbag sometime soon too, so please send questions you’ve got to as well!

Shroom for Two Episode 62 - Draftsmas Eve

Hello, Heroes! Welcome to another draftacular episode of Shroom for Two! 

This week, we’re ramping up for our special holiday battle episode. We liked the idea of drafting decks in our previous battle episodes, so we’re sticking with that. 

We’ve got some additional restrictions on the deckbuilding this time that should ensure some creative and different decks. You’ll have to listen to find out what they are and what we picked! 

We hope you’re having a happy holiday season. Stay tuned for our next battle episode next week! And keep an eye on our Youtube page at ShroomForTwoPodcast. Mike’s got some plans…

Shroom for Two Episode 61: Smarty Smash Brothers

Hello, Heroes! 

Welcome to another ultimate episode of Shroom for Two. This week, we sink our teeth into an interesting twist on aggro decks, with a full treatment of Smarty aggro decks. 

We go over Justini’s big write-up of the archetype a few weeks ago, and we look at the aggro Rose deck that Mike took to the tournament and the Fight Club.  Various other builds are discussed; including Beta Carrotina and Green Shadow.

Our next crowddecking segment will be Gravestone Neptuna, so be sure to send us your decklists to! You can also find us in the PVZ Heroes Discord server, in the #shroomfortwo channel.  Don’t forget to check out our videos on YouTube at shroomfortwopodcast!

Shroom for Two Episode 60: A Proper Berry-al

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome to another jamtastic episode of Shroom for Two! This week, we finally get our hands around a Berry Spudow segment, just in time for it to get nerfed. Come listen to us discuss the listeners’ decklists, and the substrata within them! You’ll hear us talk about how to beat the deck, what makes the cut, and what doesn’t.

Also, you’ll hear us do a very silly Card of the Week segment, wherein Mike slams on the “Complete my deck for me” button with 4x Pear Cub, just to see what happens. A surprisingly passable deck results!

If you want to get in touch with us, drop us a line at! You can also find us on YouTube at shroomfortwopodcast! Come say hi in our #shroomfortwo channel on the PVZ Heroes discord, and, if you feel like it, drop us a tip jar at our Shroom for Two CashApp in the notes below.

Shroom for Two Episode 59: Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

Hello, Heroes! 

Come turn and face the strange on another episode of Shroom for Two! This week, we’re overjoyed to report on another data-mined balance patch that hit the reddit last week. Tons of juicy meta-shaping details to be had, so don’t miss it! 

We blow off Card of the Week this week (sorry, Overstuffed Zombie), to spend some extra time on the balance patch. Pretty much all the boogeymen are in the crosshairs this time: Briar Rose, Planet of the Grapes, Valkyrie, and the three best Berry creatures are all getting nerfed. A few big buffs as well: Neutron Imp, Bog of Enlightenment, Marine Bean, and a few others are all getting a pretty substantial leg up. What will happen? Who knows!

Finally, we give our most recent tournament reports. Taylor got knocked out by double-barreled dream-crusher Extra, and Mike advances one step further in the second chance bracket. 

Don’t forget to check out our YouTube page at shroomfortwopodcast, where mike posts all of his tournament matches. We also have a channel on the PvZ Heroes Discord, #shroomfortwo! Come chat with us about the game, the show, girls who broke your heart, or the Matrix.

Also, if you can find it in your heart to give us money, that would be super great! Check out our tip jar at$ShroomForTwo
