My plan is to allow characters to either use the pre-built decks as listed exactly... or they can build their own unique deck with only basic cards. This gives the "package gear" some advantages over the built gear for a couple of characters.
But I do think they should probably be swapped with Chainmail like Valeros has. It does not really make sense that the cleric would have better armor at start then the fighter IMO.

I'm guessing it was Basic when they wrote the suggested decks, and then later changed Half-Plate to be elite and forgot to update the suggested decks."
This seems a very likely hypothesis. It's been on my list of errata for a while, but I haven't decided which way I want to errata it.
This was posted on the boardgame geek forum about it a while back. so I guess you'll have to wait for the errata.
