  • This card can be useful on a "Sylvan" Deck. Use this card effect to return 1 of your "Sylvans" to the top of your Deck, and, before the Draw Phase of your next turn, Excavate that returned monster to activate its effect. Not only that, it can also be helpful for general Synchro Summon.
  • Since this card is a Level 2 monster you can re-Summon it with "Graceful Revival".
  • Use "Imperial Iron Wall" to prevent this card from being banished. You can then continue to recycle it at will (at the cost of returning cards from your hand to the top of your Deck). Then you can use "Imperial Custom" to make it so your "Imperial Iron Wall" can not be destroyed.
  • It's useful to Special Summon this card from the Graveyard using the effect of "Doomkaiser Dragon/Assault Mode" to Synchro Summon another "Doomkaiser Dragon" or "Revived King Ha Des".
  • This card can be revived with "Junk Synchron", therefore not having to banish it.
  • You can use this card in conjunction with "Shutendoji" to continuously send it back to the Deck.
  • Use "Dark Grepher" to discard "Destiny HERO - Malicious" and use its other effect to send "Plaguespreader Zombie" to the Graveyard. Then you can Summon a Level 8 Synchro Monster and still be able to Normal Summon a monster. If used with "Emergency Teleport" you can swarm the field with Synchro Monsters. You even Summon "Dark Armed Dragon".
  • By reviving this card from your Graveyard, you may use its effect to return a low Level Normal Monster to your Deck, for "Enchanting Fitting Room". This might also be enough to set up a Synchro Summon.
  • Special Summon this card from your Graveyard on each turn with "Il Blud" to Synchro Summon multiple times.
  • You can first activate the effect of "Plaguespreader Zombie", then, you can send the card you sent to the top of your Deck to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Glow-Up Bulb", it's useful to Synchro Summon twice, and also, to activate effects like the effect of "Destiny HERO - Dasher".
  • You can Special Summon this card with its effect, and Special Summon a "Quillbolt Hedgehog" from your Graveyard with its effect, so you can Xyz Summon "Gachi Gachi Gantetsu". When "Gachi Gachi Gantetsu" is destroyed (or it has no more Xyz Materials), you can repeat this combo to Special Summon another "Gachi Gachi Gantetsu".
  • This card's effect works great to return one dead "Reborn Tengu" in your hand to your Deck while you have another "Reborn Tengu" on the field. Synchro Summon a Level 6 monster, and Special Summon the returned "Tengu".
  • This card may be used to Synchro Summon "Arcanite Magician". Special Summon "The Tricky" by discarding "Plaguespreader Zombie" and revive "Plaguespreader Zombie". Then Sync both in order to Summon "Arcanite Magician".

Traditional Format

  • This card may be used to Synchro Summon "Dark Strike Fighter" on the first turn. Special Summon "The Tricky" by discarding "Plaguespreader Zombie" and revive "Plaguespreader Zombie". Then send both to the Graveyard in order to Summon "Dark Strike Fighter".
  • Using a "Plaguespreader Zombie" with "Quillbolt Hedgehog" while you have a "Card of Safe Return" and "Imperial Iron Wall" on the field, allows you to Summon a wave of Synchro Monsters if you have at least two "Quillbolt" in the Graveyard. Note that unless you Summon another monster and use it as a Synchro Material, you can Summon two Level 8 Synchro Monsters (if you have three "Quillbolts"), a Level 6 one, and then a level 4 one. Level 4 Synchro Monsters are "Armory Arm", "Phonon Pulse Dragon" and "Underworld Fighter Balmung". If you Summon only Armory Arm, you may wish to simply Summon three of these to equip to the other Synchro Monsters, as they are moved to Spell & Trap Zones and will not prevent Summoning another monster. Even if you decide not to Summon Synchro Monsters, you can still use the "Quillbolts" and "Plaguespreader" as Tributes for powerful monsters, "Cannon Soldier", or to easily make use of "Obelisk the Tormentor".
    • You can, however, summon up to 4 Level 8 Synchro Monsters. Summon the first two via the normal way. Then Summon a Level 6 Synchro Monster. Then tune the newly revived "Plaguespreader Zombie" with the Level 6 Synchro Monster. For the last one, Summon the Level 4 Synchro Monster, then tune the revived "Plagespreader" with the Level 4 monster to make a Level 6, and then revive "Plagespreader" again and tune for your last Level 8 Synchro.
  • Using a "Plaguespreader Zombie" while you have a "Card of Safe Return" and a "Imperial Iron Wall" on the field with "Shadowpriestess of Ohm" and 1 or more cards in your hand, you can continually inflict 800 damage to your opponent. Play a "Shadowpriestess of Ohm" and use its effect Tributing "Plaguespreade", then activating the effect of "Plaguespreader" to Special Summon it from the Graveyard using "Card of Safe Return" to return the card from the effect of "Plaguespreader" to your hand to repeat the cycle creating an OTK.
    • You can also make an endless mill with the effect of "Soul-Absorbing Bone Tower". Again, this requires "Imperial Iron Wall" and "Card of Safe Return".
    • You could also use "Cannon Soldier" or "Mass Driver" instead of "Shadowpriestess of Ohm", although the former two do less damage, doing 500 and 400 respectively.
      • Theoretically, if it was a casual Duel, you could use 2 "Plaguespreader Zombies" and have at least two cards in your hand and Tribute both "Plaguespreaders" using Cannon Soldier MK-2 to deal 1500 points of damage to your opponent, then continuously revive both Zombies.
  • Another combo using this card, "Card of Safe Return", "Quillbolt Hedgehog" and "Imperial Iron Wall" is to Summon either "Shooting Quasar Dragon" or "T.G. Halberd Cannon". Keep using the effect of Zombie to revive itself from the Graveyard, then, use "Card of Safe Return" to Draw 1 card back, then Tune it with "Quillbolt" to Synchro Summon 1 "Phonon Pulse Dragon". Repeat the process and Synchro Summon other Level 2 monsters. Finally, tune the "Phonon Pulse" with the other 2 Synchro Monsters to Summon either "Quasar" or "Halberd Cannon". This combo can only be send once per turn, as "Phonon Pulse Dragon" can only be Special Summon once per turn.
