Orchestra Conductor is expensive and has terrible stats for his cost (even with the ability boost), and his only saving grace is his ability. Fortunately, giving every zombie on the field +2 is a powerful ability, making Orchestra Conductor a decent card to strengthen groups of zombies, regardless of what type of deck you are using; as long as you can have many out on the field, it should be fine.
If you want to reactivate his ability, either Bounce him back via Secret Agent or Firefighter, or hide him in a gravestone by playing In-Crypted (which Impfinity has), but avoid using Mixed-Up Gravedigger as the previous strength boost will be lost, defeating the purpose of "replaying" Orchestra Conductor. Also, it is not advised to play Orchestra Conductor on turn 4 right away if you want to do that, since Orchestra Conductor will have to survive a turn of combat, which he can't most of the time. It is not recommended to use this zombie along with Disco-Naut either unless they have 0 or 1 strength, as Orchestra Conductor will boost them to over 3, essentially stripping them of the Bullseye trait.
In terms of synergy, Orchestra Conductor is a dancing card, meaning he can synergize with Flamenco Zombie, Aerobics Instructor, and Headhunter. As for his history synergy, it is much less significant, as it only makes him obtainable via Escape through Time and Zombot Dinotronic Mechasaur.
Due to his low stats, Orchestra Conductor should not pose as a threat. Instead, you might want to deal with the other zombies, as they have recently gained +2. If a majority of your opppnent's zombies end up with 4 strength, the best counter against them would be Doom-Shroom. Or, you could wipe them out with your own plants, which won't get any harder since Orchestra Conductor doesn't boost health.
Also, try not to Bounce him unless you are about to win, as your opponent can replay him to boost all the zombies again, making them into even bigger threats.
