You sound like a man who likes to blow his own trumpet my good sir.
If one powergames then there eventually will always be a 'best' and a 'worst' team, but in friendly games I try to make lists that are fun to play with and against, you may need to look towards that theory more.
On another note, I have beaten many powergaming lists on more than one occasion with Tomb King lists and they're one of the weaker factions and I've seen competent orc players beat competent daemon players. Whist some armies may have advantage, it comes down to the player skill more often than not! In addition, high volumes of low strength attacks tend to rip apart daemons, whilst the traditional high strength low volume option (seen as powerful) falls apart. They are a different army with a different approach required to defeat them. I don't believe in, or agree with handicaps and I don't believe necessarily that one army is vastly superior, I do agree that some armies are annoying to play against however...
I find there's no honour in a game with a handicap, when I am fairly beaten I find it to be an honourable defeat, with a handicap it's just....empty for me and them.
