I really don't see why someone would even carry one card of any unit around
Sarkath wrote:Eskatia for Lawtia players is a great example, who would have 3 of Eskatia? Low chance, realistically, you would have one or two if really lucky or a lot of wasted gran. But why would you get Eskatia killed on the frontline? You don't, you keep it where the opponent can't touch it. I'd be able to go a very long way with just one Eskatia, and would probably be enough for my deck.
Anyone with any experience would immediately go after the Eskatia, so you'd probably need at least 2. Well... not that in matters in the tournament, every Lawtia player runs with three of them...

It all depends on your execution of strategy. Remember that you should force the opponent to make your card become as untouchable as possible. That's the way to go, your biggest threat as stated would be the grimoires, next soul skills and thirdly the ranged units.
Why would ranged units be third? Due to that if you are focusing on using lycans you will have some mighty damage with ranged units. Therefore you will have a lot of chances to attack what's behind the opponent's front line. Also most front lines have a range of 1, which means they won't attack your Eskatia or lycans. So you see how it will turn out if you just do it the right way. There's also some luck within this, due to the lycans wide range of options to attack.
There are some front line units that do put some threat on either lycans or eskatia. That would be any unit that can choose which unit to attack, within its range or over the whole battlefield (flying abilities). However it's still the same, as long you can execute it correctly, you will be able to accomplish most of its role with one card.
So, as said. Having one card of an unit can be very useful due to the fact you can put in other useful cards into the deck that might just be more worthwhile than having to lay out extra cards due to lack of unit resource management. It all comes down to mostly skill, and a minority of luck.
Also, if you put 3 cards into each unit, how much space will you have left? Not much, and that space could have been spent on grimoires that you can combine with your other cards to improve the situation while having that frontline defense, those lycans and that eskatia. But of course those people won't be able to do that since they got too many cards of several units.
