Engineer are basic units that produce Energy. Energy is most often used to buy gold producing units like Drones. Engineer can be produced by alternative means, such as Cauterizer, Sentinel, and Hellhound.
On the second turn, buying a third Engineer allows you to build three Drones each turn resulting in a high economy. This may be countered by a low economy and good use of the potential rushy units of the Random set if there is no heavy blocker like Polywall (so read the set well).
Engineer is the unit of the Base set that provides defensive granularity with its 1 Health for 2gold. Because Engineer is not prompt, you need to buy them ahead of time to optimize your defense granularity.
Engineer is considered the standard gold cost for one 1 of defense. By this heuristic it can be said that Infusion Grid is very cost efficient while Rhino, if it must be sacrificed before attacking, is inefficient.
