General description:
Great card for Jedi Testing Decks. Could even be used in a manipulation deck with dagobah sites. Has the ability to take out cards from opponents deck for the rest of the game.

Uses:
Use with Mind What You Have Learned or with any deck with dagobah sites.

Strategies and game play:
As soon as you get a stone pile, play it. With both stone piles out you take 4 cards out of opponents deck for possibly the rest of the game. Most cards are very important in a deck, else they would not be in the deck, so the odds of taking something from the opponents that will stall or hurt their deck is pretty good if both stone piles are played. The best part is that you can save both stone piles and play them in one turn to reduce opponents hand. If you reduce opponents hand to 2 or 3 cards, then you can usually safely spread out for one turn for a great force drain.

Combos with other cards:
Dagobah sites.

Ways to counteract it:
Alter

Strengths/Pros:
You lose 2 cards to opponents 4
2 can be in play
takes out nearly 7 % of opponents deck with both stone piles in play
reduces opponents hand limiting risk of being attacked by characters deploying
take out the right card and you might have the game in the bag very early
even if you do not take out a card that is important to the opponents deck it will still erk them to lose cards


Weaknesses/Cons:
Destiny 2
not immune to alter
costs 2 force to deploy

Artwork and aesthetics:
For a swamp those stones are awfully round

Overall rating:
9.5 out of 10 just because it has the ability to change the whole game in one turn

As you say it hurts to lose any card, from force drain, attrition, or card effects. I tend to always play with 2 Dagobah sites as opponent cant deploy there(straight away), and I use them for combos against him(or Her). Fear is another nice card.
