Against Knights or Dwarves, you can limit the Azazel attacks without giving up anything, which makes the matchup a lot worse for Azazel.
Well no cause even if Azazel kills only 1 knight, it's still worth it, because the rest of the Azazel army will just chill in startzone waiting for Azazel to revive, and have 0 casualties.

That's the difficulty when playing vs Azazel army you kinda have to run towards opponent and catch the rest of the army because otherwise you'll 100% lose on points.
I agree with you avoiding fights can be difficult on very small maps and mass commons is a hard machup for Azazel compared to hodgepodge but I still think Azazel army has a decent shot vs the top tier stuff.
The thing with Knights or Dwarves is that they can ignore 1 attack per turn from Azazel while they go straight for his start zone. So Azazel kills maybe 4 Knights, if his attack is working great, and then you have 1-2 squads of knights in his start zone killing all of the other figures.

My point was just that it's much easier to 'skip' Azazel with commons that don't need tight formation for defense boosts and/or don't work great with Raelin, such as Knights & Dwarves.

Troopers are great imo. They have okay stats, and a squad special attack is amazing. I think Dysole's trooper spam build probably would have been better served with a big hero as it will have 4th Mass bad matchups against dragons by virtue of not having any high attack. But hard to say what hero.
Seems like you spoke to soon... What about Himmelskralle?

320 Microcorp Troopers x4
400 Raelin
500 Himmelskralle

That looks nasty, and really baits the bad matchups like PKs and Rats into a Himmelskralle Onslaught!

My Maps
Tournament Record: 28-28: .500!
