Save also works well with Treasure Map to guarantee collision. Played this on a random board yesterday that included Baker. Opened double Treasure Map, saved a Map on turn three, cracked them on turn four. Profit.

A nice trick you can pull with save is when eg opening ambassador/ambassador with a 3/4 you can save your T2 estate for T3 to try to get it in Hand with amb + another estate. More generally this applies to all trashers on a 3/4 opening where you dont want a $4 card with your T2 buy.

So how does this affect openings?

Turn 3/4 into 1/5, or 2/5 into 0/6. Maybe turn 5/2 into 3/3, if you really, really want double ambassador. I don't think there is any value of doing it on a 4/3 opener, as 2/4 seems strictly worse.

Open Silver/Silver and save an Estate to all but guarantee some $5 hands in the next shufffle.

What other ways can you change your opening with Save?

Most 6's aren't very good to open with though. The main ones that come to mind are Altar and Goons. The rest are... kinda mediocre. You can open with a 7 with this and Baker or Borrow. Seems kinda edge-casey, and most 7's aren't very good to open with anyway. But the possibility to do so is kinda neat. Turning 5/2 into 3/3 is pretty good I think, there are lots of boards where that's better.

Bank could be a good opening if you want a money strategy.
