Even with two max-atk buffs from Waver, her own Quick buff, and the plugsuit's buff, Scathach's NP doesn't wipe the enemies. Sometimes it isn't even enough to kill Caesar. I did a bunch of experimenting before deciding to lead with Shiki's NP, and even TWO NPs from Waver to reduce the enemy's defense isn't enough to let Scathach's NP clear them. Though granted, I haven't done my Waver's NP interlude yet, so his NP isn't at full power.
Scathach's NP is never gonna wipe out Santa Alter, she has too much health for that. She needs to crit to finish her off, which you can guarantee to her if you have the F/Z Mystic Code.
I've been running Arash/Scathach/Ozymandias/Chloe/Waver as my team. Need Ozy to grant Arash the NP gauge for him to fire off the first wave since I have his charge skill stuck at 8 due to needing more homunculus babies. Second wave, Ozy uses Charisma, swap him out for Waver and Waver pops everything, Chloe charges and buffs herself and she or Scathach finish off the dragon depending on how card dealing goes. (If Chloe gets a chain she finishes it off and generates the stars for Scathach to finish off Santa, but if she doesn't get a chain Scathach has to land the last few hits and you get less stars) Pop plugsuit attack for the final wave and Scathach uses her quick and crits buff and go for a brave chain cards permitting, and if her Buster card pops up I'll throw that before the NP, you can also throw a card onto Caesar before NPing to ensure he dies and then the last hits will go onto Santa Alter.
If you get a bad deal with the card RNG, it turns a 3 turn clear into a 4 or 5 turn clear, depending on what exactly you get screwed on in regards to cards. I don't have the F/Z mystic code so if Chloe gets too many cards during the final wave she steals the crit stars from Scathach killing my 3/4 turn clear.
You can swap Chloe for Kintoki Rider if you have him and don't have Chloe's NP charge to 10 with this team, but he has the same threat of stealing stars away from Scathach as well. (Again, moot with the F/Z Mystic Code) Shiki should still work too if she can wipe the dragon out in one turn and generate some stars too.
