We are a bit unsure as to why you would ever use the card Strategy Meeting?
Why placing a card back on your deck instead of using it right away?

Thanks!

It is actually a pretty decent card.
it lets you return a card you might not want/be able to use this turn.

If you don't have enough money to lay rails, but don't want to go thru your whole deck to get back to the green card you have in your hand.
Put it back on top.

You buy a card with an early train, that will combo well with a card you just had in your hand.

It is cheap enough, and gives a coin if i remember correctly, to be worth buying in plenty of scenarios.

It does require some forward thinking and planning.

Some cases where it might be useful include:
- A Legal Counsel, so you have protection against Attack cards for the next round, especially if you have no money to pay for its draw action.
- You have a train card with no cards that let you lay rails, and not enough money to buy a card.
- Any other card that is only useful when combined with another card (money, a train, a rail-laying card, etc).

I've never actually had it out on the board to play with yet, but looking at it it doesn't seem too bad.

Even if you don't want to use the card's ability, it's a gold at least .

But there'll be many cases where you might want to;
have a Station Expansion but no cities,
a Lay Rails but no money,
a Landfill but no waste,
or if you've been keeping track of your cards as you build the deck and have a rough idea what's coming up next (or used Info. Central), you can set up for a better combo next turn.

Either way, doesn't look half bad
