General description:
Amazing card for force manipulation decks (which i hate). If you were making a non battle deck then this is your guy. Will suspend control of a site for opponent for up to 3 sites, if you get all 3 down. It does present a risk of opponent is able to prevent the react away, but this problem is easily bypassed if you have "houjix" in hand. Over all a really tricky and cheap card to use which encourages less battles.

Uses:
Can be used in any deck just as a force drain stopper. Deploy down and save force to react away when opponent battles you next turn. You could also use this card to force drain and make opponent come to you. Since the idea of the card is to get all the advantages of having presence at a site without having to battle (which is the idea of the game, battle for control), this card pretty much just as cheap as sleen or nudj.

Strategies and game play:
Use this card in a deck with "Anger, Fear, Aggression", "Houjix", "Worrt" and "Nudj" and you pretty much have the makings of a literally cheap deck as well as cheap in the game since decipher really did not come up with any sold cards to counter any of these combos. ['("This gives me an idea for a counter for these cards")']. If i ever ran across someone who played this against me my strategy would be to wait till about half way through the game throw all the cards of the table and let my opponent know he wins.

Combos with other cards:
Houjix and Anger, Fear, Aggression

Ways to counteract it:
have cards that cancel reacts or use opponent's force. Also a space deck will make this card pretty much useless. And i guess you could use decks that only have one location per planet.

Strengths/Pros:
Destiny 3
low deploy
can react away from battles
can have 3 on table

Weaknesses/Cons:
low stats for battling

Artwork and aesthetics:
Looks like a wuss alien, so the picture does fit the game text.

Overall rating:
7 out of 10
