Analysis

While Zombie Slugger has the Zombie attribute, it doesn't fit with the deck particularly well at the moment, as / abilities will not activate off of the deck's revival special summons. Currently its value is as a fairly generic card with a lot of defensive function, able to act as a 1 cost 2 damage event from hand that leaves a body behind and of course beats out other similar cards by dodging set removal. For these reasons it could be very good in G&G Armament Factory builds.

It also has some offensive applications. This can be a bit rough to use, since Pinch Hitter uses a normal summon, limiting you by your summon cap, but if you do have spare summon cap, say from your board being established from a previous turn, you can summon this for an extra attack and use Full Swing to destroy a A7 Cheshire Cat to force an attack through.

Lastly, while it may not fit into the Zombie archetype right now, its Zombie attribute means that if you play it in a Military deck running Captain Zombie, it'll be a valid target for Captain Zombie's Damage Reversal cost.
