As with all units with Lifespan and Blocker, Chieftain is at its most efficient when used to take fatal damage on the turn that it would die due to lifespan, ensuring that all its health goes to use. This is especially important in the case of Chieftain, since attack per turn can otherwise be obtained without the lifespan drawback for similar costs – two Tarsiers, for example, cost 8red and provide the same amount of , but can do it indefinitely.
The best way to use the Chieftain in this fashion is by creating a 'train' of Chieftains, buying one every turn from the first and using them to defend in succession. In this manner they all get full value. The difficulty in this setup is being able to predict three turns in advance that Chieftain's life won't be wasted in defense when its time comes.
