The Fate Collab is now in full swing and while Rare Egg Machine portion is lackluster (full Review can be found HERE), the Farmable Servant, Assassin is an incredibly valuable card and should be acquired by most players.
The reason for this is that he functions as both a double Row generator along with possessing a special Button nuke.
Servant, Assassin can be acquired through either 5 Rainbow Event Medals or by heavily grinding the Fate event dungeon. Either way, one can find Servant, Assassin in the Monster Exchange Event tab for the duration of the Fate event.

Servant, Assassin is one of the major prizes in the Fate Collab as he offers an incredibly valuable active skill that will greatly aid various Farming builds. Furthermore, due to the dual nature of his active, he can potentially solve multiple floors worth of problems.
Double Row formation
In this day and age, being able to Farm content quickly and efficiently is important as it enables players to accomplish repetitive tasks with ease. As such, having access to a mono colour double Row maker is invaluable. This is because when used after a full mono board changer (except for Wood) will create a 18/12 distribution.
From here, it can be efficiently solved into whatever pattern is required but the main idea is always having a predictable board. As such, the solving pattern is always the same and there is no chance of error or variance.
For example, an 18/12 board can be quickly solved into a 7 Combo VDP board. This guaranteed activation is invaluable when playing through content that requires Damage Penetration or for leaders such as Amen who must hit exactly 7 Combos for activation.
The following board showcases the VDP 7 Combo solve:
200x colour changing nuke
As a general statement, most Button active skills are fixed to a specific colour which in turn can be effected by the attribute of the opposing spawn. This means that a Button that deals Water damage will be half as effective against Wood spawns.
Thankfully, Servant, Assassin comes with a unique Button aspect as the damage dealt will be based on the card’s primary colour. Thus, inheriting him onto a Dark card will result in 200x ATK Dark damage.
This is meaningful as you can now optimally inherit Servant, Assassin in order to ensure you will always have colour advantage against the opposing spawn. Thus, inheriting him onto a Dark-based card will be ideal against Light spawns as the Effective Button damage is now 400x.
While the base multiplier is lower compared to some options, being able to always have double the effective damage can greatly open up team building options.
Acquiring Servant, Assassin
Servant, Assassin can be acquired via the Monster Exchange system and can be done through a special currency: Saber’s Game Piece. Each Saber’s Game Piece will require numerous dungeon drops to create but can also be exchanged 1:1 with Rainbow Event Medals . Either way, Servant, Assassin will require 5 Saber’s Game Pieces.
Rainbow Event Medal or Saber’s Game Piece?
Depending on how long you have been playing, it is highly possible to have over copious amounts of Rainbow Event Medals . This can be both good and bad as there is currently not too many worthy things to spend them on (even with the 2+ month heads up from the JP server.
As such, using Rainbow Event Medals can be good if you simply wish to save time as it can be quite a grind and if your stamina is needed else where. Furthermore, Rainbow Event Medals do not stack which in turn can clog up excessive Box space. Furthermore, players can acquire two Saber’s Game Pieces from clearing the Fate Challenge dungeon.
Either way, one can use some Rainbow Event Medals at the end of the event (since Saber’s Game Pieces and Rainbow Event Medals trade 1:1) to acquire any last needed Saber’s Game Pieces required for Servant, Assassin.
Servant, Assassin is an invaluable card to acquire but is only available for a limited time. Even if you may not foresee yourself using him right now, that could quickly change in the future when farming content becomes a higher priority. As such, it is better to spend the effort now to acquire an important card for the future.
Let me know what you think about Servant, Assassin and whether or not you plan on acquiring him via Rainbow Event Medals or dungeon farming.

Already have one. Is there any point to getting another?
Same question here! Any suggestion?
Less incentive for sure but it should come down to how many other double row makers you own. If you have no one else, having a second can be meaningful
other than double row change, his active seems pretty weak for a single target nuke
It becomes 400x ATK with colour adv and can be inherited onto someone with a higher ATK
Works pretty well considering it is farmable
Farmables always give me Vietnam flashbacks to the time where I hypermaxed a Kaguya-Hime
Well at least we don’t have to spend much effort to max out a card nowadays =)
Is Sakura Matou worth it too or just Servant, Assassin.
Servant Assassin is much better overall. I don’t think there is a meaningful usage for sakura
I have used sakura matou quite a bit. Has tape resist, unbind and time extend active, and double skill bind resists.
