Sure, you can survive just about anything with Cudgel's Soul Skill so it doesn't matter so much if you go first or second, but at least your giving the enemy a little breathing room. He's got some time to do SOMETHING, whether it's move units he doesn't want to die to the back, use Annarose's power to Engage one of your units, rest his Dragon to give it just enough HP to survive. Generally, shutting out the enemy means going first. Personally though, I love Cudgel as a unit, and with the possibility of even more sexy level 7+ units and AGI 5 units in the future he's got some potential.
it really depends on the situation and army. if you play a really fast army with all units having agi 3-5 then the extra agi may not be neccessary. also, the boy inquisitor SS can be used for both offense and defense. for example suppose your opponent just managed to take a good chunk out of your army (with fire tornado or some other mass damage ability). suppose you only have 2 creature's left while the opponent still had like 4. with chururu's ability you would be able to kill off 2 of them but the remaining 2 could probably take out your creatures. with the boy inquisitor your units stand a good chance of surviving (there are exceptions of course but most creatures cant bypass 50 def) so even if he does go first and protects some of his units you'll at least be able to kill off 2 of his guys while keeping your people alive.
i think chururu and boy inquisitor are equally good, just they are meant for different kinds of armies. as i like to play fast decks (right now i'm playing a lawt deck with a little gowen splashed into it) and my deck is pretty fast, i think the boy inquisitor SS would benefit me more. if i was playing a refuss deck which can already take a lot of damage but lacks in speed, i would probably prefer chururu.
