i think you may be misjudging the value of the great pajamas. in an endgame where the rhinos, headless rhinos, and great elephants have been traded off, winning with just an elephant and bats can be difficult. in such a situation, if you are the only one with great pajamas, it means you control where the dust demons appear on the board. since they are neutral, this is critical.
