"The whole is greater than the individual parts." 
 
This list is all about the combination of players on one unit making that unit effective.  One dominating player does not necessarily make the unit dominating; although admittedly one dominating player can make up for supposed weaknesses around him.  Conversely, there are times when the right combination of good, though not great, players make a unit effective.
 
As with some other lists on this site this list is subjective, missing information and begs debate and discussion.  So help me to fill in the missing gaps.
