I love this card. I don't have one yet (Guys, that's a hint for a trade, BTW), but he is a must for any Trade Federation deck. (Well, he is their Vicroy anyway, lol)
He is a must for any droid deck, because of how effective, usefull, needed (you get my point) he is!
Strategies and game play:
Put him with droids! (Trade Federation Droids of course) He makes them 1 cheaper to deploy, can make them Intercept, and the best part: It works for all arenas! So you could have your Droid Control Ship Interecpting shots from a Droid Starfighter, or vise-versa.
Combos with other cards:
Most any Trade Federation card, especially droids, but the Patrol Mode Vulture Droid is the icing on the cake. With Trade Federation Hanger, they deploy for 5, yep, an 8 Power, 8 Health, Accurate Shooting, Shielded Vulture, all for 5, that can Intercept if needed....
Ways to counteract it:
Most players just try to kill him off ASAP. So try to have some Battle Droids to protect him. (Intercept)
Makes Trade Federation units gain Intercept and can be deployed for 1 cheaper.
If he is ever alone in the Character arena, he's doomed!
Also, to think in a non-gameplay way, he is probably the most hardest SWTCG card to ever find! Go onto eBay, and you can find a Vader R with ease. But Nute Gunray (C), that's a different story....
Foil and non-foil
Artwork and aesthetics:
"Where are those droideka?" actually states in a way how to play him. Keep something in the Character arena (Like a destroyer droid) to Intercept damage from enemies. (Like Qui Gon Jinn or Obi Wan Kenobi)
