Y'know, I like ratlings. I've toyed with the idea that my in-game persona has a ratling scout as a follower. I voted for ratlings when the choice was put forth for a new "clan".
Ratling is NOT a great clan. Ratling has NOT been around since the beginning of the game. Ratling, with their own SH may not have had their "moment in the sun", but decks that were pretty much 100% Ratling with the Ratling sensei were very strong.
Dragon has been around since the beginning, has always been a Great Clan, and of those Great Clans, have never, ever had their "time in the sun". Ratling is the young-whippersnapper "fun" Clan that, it seems to me anyway, isn't supposed to be that good. When you've had SIX YEARS of waiting for good times, get back to me on that whine and maybe I'll back you up.
Heck if Dragon actually *gets* good, I'll probably back you up earlier than that.

With how cool Junnosuke is in the story (whether it's love-cool or hate-cool) I'd much rather we just dreamed up our own Junnosuke-card than to be kicked in the balls with such a crappy printed one.
