Strategy[edit | edit source]

Savior should be bought early in the game if you plan to use it at all; probably before you buy any tech buildings. Since Drones are double value, you should certainly proceed to buy out the entire Drone supply if at all possible.

Savior is mostly strong in sets with big defenders such as Polywall and Energy Matrix as otherwise you might be rushed down by early attackers. Running out of Wall supply is also frequently an issue for players who go Savior with no alternate source of defense.

Savior has a particularly strong synergy with Defense Grid as the Drones it gives you are double value so it's like Defense Grid gives you two Drones every turn.

In normal games, Forcefield is a much better defender than Rhino. In Savior games, however, since Forcefield essentially costs 2 Drones, Rhinos become better. For this reason you generally want to stay away from green when going for Savior, unless the green attackers are just too good to skip (eg. Asteri Cannon), or there is a random set green defender such as Aegis or Innervi Field. Plexo Cell becomes regular Forcefield efficiency soak.
