Personal Comment:
Tuners are used specifically to Synchro Summon monsters.  So for a Tuner to be effective and useful in this respect, it has to have the ability to be easily brought onto the playing field when needed.  Plaguespreader Zombie is one of the best option there is.  Getting him into the Graveyard is fairly easy with all the cards available to specifically accomplish this task (such as Foolish Burial or Dark Grepher).  Having Plaguespreader Zombie in the Graveyard is also a bonus since this monster's stats won't offer him much protection on the playing field.  Once there, bringing him out is as simple as returning 1 card from your hand to the top of your deck.  The fact that you don't need to destroy/remove a card to get him in play is a huge bonus.  The stipulation that this card needs to be removed from play if Special Summoned this way is not a very big problem.  Since you will only be bringing this monster out for the sole purpose of a Synchro Summon, having him removed from play to get a Synchro Monster on the field is more than a fair trade-off.  Even so, there are plenty of cards that can bring him back into play.  In addition, Plaguespreader Zombie can be splashed into any Synchro Deck and still be effective.  Easily one of the best Tuner available, he's a Synchro Monster's lifeline in any duel.
