Nute Gunray is a great stealth leader. He would work very well with Princess Leia, Dathcha, Teebo and Nightsister Acolyte. This could be an all stealth team here.
However, all stealth characters are fragile and therefore not a good team against any AoE team. When Nute stealths, his damage goes up as he gets critical chance bonus. His base critical rate is high and gets stronger when you gear him well.
The bomb isn’t the best skill to have, but since he is fragile, you can always cast bomb on your enemies on the first turn for the AoE damage 2 turns later. That means he can go down easily but he will still do some damage.
I think Nute will become a good choice once EA buffs bombs. They could buff it to perhaps stun enemies when it detonates. Until that happens, I think burst damage is better.
[usrlist “Campaign Map:4” “Arena:3.5” “Galactic War:3.5”]
Verdict: Build him if you want a stealth team.
