Most of the heroes you listed dont need buffs, S2 just need to fix the range >>>>>>>> melee problem. Puppet/flint/silh/valk is just so safe compared to melee carries.
The fujiapples game was like 8 months ago or longer. **** I think it was before last DHW.... "OMG BALPH BEEN PLAYED BEFORE COMPETITIVELY!"
It's like saying that if a team put Soulstealer+Glac in a side lane it wouldn't be anything new because that **** was common in beta HoN.....

Not all heroes are equally valid at any given point in time due to player perception and prevailing trend/strat (aka metagame). I think that is obvious from following dota over the years.
The fact that the HoN metagame went from trilane carry to jungler lineup and down dual mid setups without huge intervention from S2 is testament to how finely balanced the game is.
