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

Shroom for Two Episode 58: The Continue Bracket

Hello, Heroes! 

Welcome to a very competitive episode of Shroom for Two! This week, we’re starting with some follow-up from our Pecanolith OTK segment. We only covered the first half of listener Sushi’s post, so we round out the coverage of the non-Guardian choices for those decks.

Next, Mike pinch hits for Taylor during Card of the Week. It was Taylor’s turn to do the deck, but he disenchanted all of his Mayflowers, so he couldn’t build one! Mike showed up with a very interesting Bog of Enlightenment deck, and we think you’ll dig it!

Finally, we go over our first few rounds of the Reddit tournament. Taylor and Mike are both in what we affectionately call the Continue Bracket. We discuss what we played, what we should have played, and what our opponents brought to the table. 

We’re finally doing Berry Spudow next week. If you’ve got one to send our way, please do so at! Don’t forget to check us out on YouTube at shroomfortwopodcast too!

We’ve also got our $ShroomForTwo tip jar, and our #ShroomForTwo Discord channel in the top menu of our website. We’d greatly appreciate it if you’d participate with either or both of those projects!

Shroom for Two Episode 57: Butt to Butt Combat

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome another episode of Shroom for Two, that is nowhere near as scatological as the title suggests!

This week, we begin the show by plugging the third Reddit PVZ Heroes tournament! The deets are in Discord, as is the sign up link, so head on over to #tournament-rules to find the info!

We also discuss the launch of our new Shroom for Two tip jar! We haven’t had a means for listeners to give us money yet, and we’ve received one or two questions to that effect. Click the “Tip Jar” link in the top menu of our website, or in these show notes, to get transported to our Square Cash site! Thank you for your support!

Our card of the week is Sneezing Zombie, a Beastly powerhouse metagame call that you all should grab. Mike’s deck of the week highlights an oft-overlooked quality of Sneezing Zombie, its high evolvability! Take advantage of its high cost and low stats by hitting it with an Evolutionary Leap and turning it into a 5 drop!

Finally, our main segment is about a sweet deck write-up about a Pecanolith OTK package by listener Sushi. It runs some pretty wacky cards, like Red Stinger, and it’s a ton of fun to play! Check out their write-up in the show notes, and give the deck a whirl yourself.

If you’ve got listener mail for us, send it over to! Don’t forget to check out our youtube page at “shroomfortwopodcast”. And if the fancy strikes you, please send us a donation to our tip jar! Thanks everybody, see you next week!
