How good will this be to skip a deploy step by killing an ammo depot? how about the new unique cost reducer from tau? 

 

Skip + remove for 2cc is reasonable?  possibly 2 skips if it counts playing this unit then sacrificing?

The issue I have with that is the timing. Sure you'll destroy the Ammo Depot/Enclave but only after they've used it. In that case I'd much rather at least get a hit in with these guys then sacrifice them since their support isn't going to be contributing anything else if it's already exhausted. I guess it's a deploy stall at a push but it becomes a situational Squig bombing that should have been used earlier.

Having said that, I really like the idea of attacking, surviving a hit, then sacrificing to destroy a support and to drop in an Elysian. Quite the combo but attacking then sacrificing seems to be decent enough. The issue is whether any of their supports are already exhausted

I think this unit is better if you have Staging Ground, since if you deploy it your opponent will know not to exhaust his Ammo Depot until Engineer is killed.
