I was thinking about the gators. I'm not sure about lists around big heavy units. Too many points for too few models. It means you get out activated easily. Also smaller lighter modes have a longer life span due to the injury rolls. Gators do have multiple attacks which will take out models more easily, but I don't think its enough. for min unit its 10 points for 3 models. For other units its more like 6 models for the same points.
If you are really intent on a gator list, I would look at starting with a Scorn Paingiver Taskmaster with master of coin which lets you bring in a Minion/Merc solo or Unit. its 20 points for him and max unit of gators. You can toss in a Void Spirit to round out the list at 24 points 6 cards.
Master of Coin command upgrade Commander bonus +5 Hit points +3 Coins +1 CMD per coin You can hire 1 Merc/Minion unit or solo Once per turn you can use a coin to use any card as a 'Recover'
