The point is that for the same price you can get a naginata. Nagis are way more useful than samurais, therefore samurais should get a small cost reduction as they are not even comparable with doppels.

overall, yes, but sams are a situational unit
I'll take sams over nagis for sieging a TC any day ;)

Samurai are better than doppels IMO. They don't require as many cards to get going, have a higher base damage and siege and still slaughter cavalry. All you have to do is give them some auras and switch the golden pavilion to melee damage and you're set to go...
Groovy.

Bigger area of effect makes doppels better, at least is the impression that I get. Samurai looks like some sort of mellee musketeer, but it doesn't seem to work.

The area of effect doesn't relaly matter. They have a max amount of area damage they do; doppels just do it over a wider area.
Groovy.

Exactly - in bigger number area>damage, and it even does less overkill. But it's a stupid discussion, debating doppels and samurais :\
