General description:
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)

Uses:
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)

Strengths/Pros:
Makes Trade Federation units gain Intercept and can be deployed for 1 cheaper.

Weaknesses/Cons:
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....

Variations:
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)

Overall rating:
10, easily....
