The IG-100 Magnaguard were used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems as Elite droids and personal bodyguards to some of the Separatist leaders. They carried electro-staffs that Lightsabers were unable to cut through, and could function even after being beheaded.

Magnaguards were designed to be far more capable of actual combat than Battledroids, which were basically just cannon fodder.  General Grievous appreciated their improved abilities, and used them frequently, but many of the leaders of the CIS found them to be too unpersonable, and chose to stick with the wise-cracking battledroids that were basically useless against both Clonetroopers and Jedi.
