Like I said the reason Edelgard is more strategic and caring of others is Byleth's influence.I think people saying that Edelgard would be too unwilling to team up with Dimitri and Claude kind of comes back to the fact that she was just poorly written as a villain.
As I said previously, Dimitri and Claude were pretty much the same personality-wise whether you went through their route or not. Edelgard for some reason stops being more strategic and caring of others when you don't go her route, and instead is just "WAR! WAR! WAR!" It's even worse when you consider that while Edelgard's route works to unite Fodlan and remove corruption, something Dimitri was also hoping to do, Dimitri's route doesn't even deal with the problems of the Church or Those Who Slither in the Dark, and Claude takes out TWSITD after Dimitri and Edelgard pretty much kill each other.
