I don't know if this has ever been addressed, but its an interesting topic. 

I feel like a lot of options can be brought up here. 

 

It is solely the Marshall or is it something else like the spy, the general, etc. 

 

I'm interested in hearing your opinion! :)

It's a miner when the opponent has nothing higher than a scout.

This is a very abstract question. Most would answer the marshal, but the fact that the opponent has a spy in a way equalizes the marshal s and the general s value. But if you are up a marshal, for instance, and the opponent still has his spy, then you should try to capture his general and lose your marshal, cause then you would be up a general and your general would be able to attack any moved piece without the fear of being captured by the spy. So, in this case, the general would be the most valuable piece. Another example: if you hare left with a miner and the opponent is left with a higher piece, your miner is possibly more important than the opponent s piece (if somehow you manage to force him to allow you to get to his flag using the 2-square rule or the rule that the other player cannot threaten your miner forever).

The best piece in Stratego is the one you use to win the match.  ;)

The worst piece is whatever your opponent knows about so the best piece would have to be all pieces unknown. The way you play them determines their value, not the rank itself.
