Champions Online Best Solo Build

Anyone have any suggestions for a good solo archetype? I seem to remember liking the Devastator AT, and the Savage was very durable (if a bit lacking in the DPS department), but I don't remember much about any of the others. Also, are there any reviews on the different Silver/Gold archetypes that are less than 5 years old?
