General description:
speak up your mind here about this card and how you like it or dislike it. Maybe dissect its parts and analyze each of its abilities and possibilities

Yoda is here!!!! This is his most powerful edition for sure and most possibly the most powerful Jedi card there is! With his 8 power and 8 health and SUPER RARE untap effect he is an EXTREMELY dangerous weapon!!!! He also probably has the best evade effect for the least Force I have ever seen and an awesome Force Gaining effect once you have control of the Character arena!!!

Uses:
how you would use this card, or how you expect other people to use it

I would definitely suggest that you see what other CHEAP Yodas you can add to your deck to be able to stack him and get him REALLY good. I also suggest you use cards like Chewbacca M and Departure Time and other Build Point and Force gainers as he is expensive.

Strategies and game play:
discuss the strategies this card could be a part of and how it affects game play in general (especially if it's a new card)

He definitely brings a whole new meaning to the word "Yoda" as he is definitely one of the most powerful Jedi out there and he will definitely bring your opponent's Character attack to an almost complete standstill, but you have to be careful not to lose in the other arenas as he is expensive to the 13'th degree. But once you get him in, try not to lose him. Use cards like Chewbacca (especially M) to intercept and/or protect him and act as a backup.

Combos with other cards:
identify other cards with which this one could make interesting combos

Definitely Chewbacca M as he can be discarded to remove all damage from Yoda, and Jocasta Nu A would be helpful in getting him out. Free Coruscant, Dagobah System, and Free Bespin will help him a lot. I would consider Missions such as Departure Time or Jedi Concentration to help a little in getting him into play. And Battle cards such as Jedi Master's Deflection that prevent damage (preferably Deflecting it) are always helpful. You could probably build a whole deck around this one card.

Ways to counteract it:
how you think players can protect themselves against this card

Darth Vader is the ULTIMATE jedi killer, so watch out for him. If you have a card that will tap him or stop his effects USE IT!!!! Other things to watch out for are Force and Build Point drainers as he requires many of these things.

Strengths/Pros:
List all the advantages of this card

He is EXTREMELY powerful, he can untap, he has an AWESOME evade effect, and he can gain Force when you have the Character arena.

Weaknesses/Cons:
List all the disadvantages of this card

expensive, Expensive, oh, and did I mention, EXPENSIVE!!!!!!

Variations:
list all variations of this card that you are aware of: in which languages it has been printed, if there is an alternate art or promotional version, if it is available in foil, etc.

No variations or Promos that I know of, but there are probably some foils out there.

Artwork and aesthetics:
do you like the artwork? is it meaningful and relates to the card abilities (or the abilities relate to the art)?

I really the the artwork is PERFECT! The scene is definitely his heyday and probably when people realize him to be the power he is.

Overall rating:
give this card a general rating from 1 to 10.

I would rate it a 9.5 as it is expensive, but the abilities more than make up for it.

some good suggestions on combo and stacking - a powerful card to have in your hands - but it is expensive
