This card has one major down side, it is much less effective against a deck that has no aliens. With the introduction of the trade federation and battle droids, alien decks are much more rare. However against a deck that does have aliens, this card is devastating.
Once the card is on table it does the work automatically. The only extra thing you can do is move artoo to a location an opponent is force draining at.
Strategies and game play:
Use Artoo to increase the odds of getting this card combo out. once it is out use it to reduce opponent's force drains, move artoo to block a force drain and make the opponent come to you.
