A 400 point army too susceptible to Braxas or Deathreavers?

Isamu 10
Marcu 20
A E 110
Kaemon Awa 120
M W 50
Crixus 90

I wanted to know if this team would be susceptible to either braxas or the Deathreavers. However, this discussion doesn't have to be exclusive to just those units any units you feel have an innate advantage over this team in a 400 point competitive army I would be elated if you could bring it to my attention. As for Crixus being in the group, to be honest he is my second favorite unit in heroscape, overshadowed only by my love for Kaemon Awa. Still, if it suits you, feel free to suggest a drop of a(n) unit(s) in this group if it means being able to be more effective against the usual units seen at tournaments.

Thanks-

You've got Kaemon Awa in there, so you wouldn't necessarily be too weak against Deathreavers. His special attack can usually kill one or two per turn without them scattering. Braxas might pose a problem, but that's over half of the available points in a 400 point game. I'd probably go with 2 squads of Deathreavers instead of Crixus, and then use those extra 10 points to replace Marcu with Guilty McCreech. I don't like using Marcu in an army made up mostly of Unique squads and heroes because those betrayals can really hurt.

That's an excellent idea, I was hesitant at first to switch the last remaining 30 points for Mc Greech instead of isamu and Marcu, btu you've pretty much convinced me.

Re: A 400 point army too susceptible to Braxas or Deathreave

Six different army cards may get cumbersome. While one card is activated, five others sit and watch. You also don't have anything to slow down your opponent. Like Jexik, I also think Deathreavers should be in here, but I'd swap out the Marro Warriors, Marcu, & Isamu for two squads of rats. Now you have a rat shield, two ranged squads w/special attacks, and a heavy hitter who's tough to kill.

120 Kaemon Awa
110 Airborne Elite
090 Crixus
080 Deathreavers x 2

There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:22-24
