Instead of rallying cries of "HAX" why not try to accomplish that which I put forward. I tried the tson armies when they were new, and knew them to be false hopes, now instead of hearsay, why not try my way before invalidating it the way I tried yours so long ago?
It'd be more decisive with pictures, true, but you get my point.

By playing a statistically weaker army, I find my skill at the game is much more improved by tournament time. Conversely I ditch all the mathematically weaker armies at tourny time so I can rock face.(Fun for fun competitive for competitive).
The quote represents the only usable special rule the codex uses. I find it paramount to this discussion, hence why I used it. By not using the "AACNMTO" you become a better player by being forced to fight for every inch, but at tournament time you pick up a good list with that rule in play and rock face.
In short, play the worse codexes during the off season, don't gimp yourself on the big games.
And armies that fail mathhammer generally do suck

actually with my thousand sons i find its best to use units you wouldn't nrmally think of. for a 1000 point game i rock the following:
Chaos Sorcerer - mark of tzeentch, warptime, winds - 185
9 thousand sons- winds -274
rhino- havoc Launcher - 50
9 thousand sons - doom bolt - 254
rhino - havoc launcher - 50
Predator - twin linked lascannon, lascannon sponsons, deamonic possession - 185
this was my last tourney army , well the one before the doubles tourney where i took nids, and i came in 2nd due to a tactical mistake, not a fault of the army. i walked away with 2 massacre's and a major victory instead of a massacre because i forgot to finish off a one man unit in KP.

I hope to God your not asking me to NOT run Berserkers?
That would just be a pointless request

Whoops! I always run my CSMs in 10s so often that I keep forgetting about that. Aw well, minor adjustment.
The only problem is getting a champion, and then a pfist in it, is 40 points. I kept trying but I couldn't find anything I wanted to take the points out of.
I know I said I was done arguing, but I just have to say this....
"Those who accepted any challenge, no matter the odds"? From the person arguing that you have to mathhammer through the odds or you suck? I smell a bit of hypocrisy.
Okay then, how about this for a challenge... at your next tournament, play CSM, but do not take a single lash or warptime prince, plague marine, berserker, chosen or obliterator. If you want to prove that you're not just full of it and actually have skill beyond the ability to use a calculator, see how you do with what you consider crap.

I'm just having fun as well, I enjoy a good argument. One could easily say that this entire discussion is valid or invalid, however neither equate truth. I would like to see where lord waffles will prove that every unit will have a cover save 100% of the time in 100% of world wide games played. They again, it would depend on how he defined unit, cover, etc. Could one say that 50% of my squad if covered by the other 50% if I played them is a solid block? I mean you can't see at least 50% of my units in the squad with TLOS because the first people in line obviously block LOS to the ones behind them. -add in sarcastic comment here- That must be how he explains 100% of units have 100% cover, but then what about MC's and vehicles? they aren't in squdrons all the time so how do they benefit from this same measure...
Either way MoT armies can be competitive such as the one IntereoVivo just posted above. I've seen others slightly different, but that list smashes faces quite well.

the idea that there is only one perfect build for CSM (or any army in 40K really) is stupid, and certainly not true. mathhammer and theoryhammer be damned, i believe what i've seen more.
