making R2-D2 useful

General description:
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.

Combos with other cards:

Ways to counteract it:
cards that break spies cover or kill droids.

reduce opponents force drains
reduce battle destinies
make a droid a spy
immune to alter
easy to get out

only works with aliens

Overall rating:
9 out of 10 when facing an alien deck. 3 out of 10 when facing any other deck.

you're overall rating was spot on - this card is beautiful again certain decks - an ugly duckling against others - your review made that abundantly clear - thanks
