If I got Nagato out on turn 4, I could get something out on 5, and more easily deploy is a good thing. I often wish that there were ways to play something, and then immediately sac it for a Pain, but I have to have planned something else out, and then not lost it, in the meantime. Nagato can sort of circumvent that, and my only real problem would be that he's a higher EC than all of the others; I could already have Deva out, before I can even play Nagato, and then I care SLIGHTLY less.
