So laaaammme you are. Stop abusing AM. Elf stop abusing DH. UD stop abusing DK. Like stfu man, do you have nightmares about the blademaster ##%%*! your *%!%%@! which has caused you deep psychological stress?
Nea, I go paladin first vs. orc, BM second for banish. Mass rifles with some sorc and it works fine. Just keep blademaster isolated with banish/mana siphon/paladin heal any focused units and push his base.
I hate cookie cutter strats, which is why I only use AM in team games, and it's for blizzard/casters. And I'm all for breaking those strats. Every popular hero should get a minor nerf, and every less popular hero a minor buff. This is a no brainer and should've been done by now.
