Hard to say, because they are all good.

However, here are a few that I generally won't pick.

Phodom:
Headbutt
Ultimate Sacrifice

Fradz:
Sword Dance

And that's pretty much it.

I probably will not use ultimate Sacrifice because I generally play on ****. So it would just result in an instant game over until I get Galeoth with Phodom.

I won't be using Headbutt for a similar reason, I wouldn't want to put myself in a bad situation because I lost 10% health. So like in a rare case, where I would use Headbutt, then power heal, except I wouldn't get the bonus health from power heal because it didn't cover that extra 10% health I lost. Which could put be into a very bad position. Not to mention that if I am below 10% health, it will kill me.

As for Sword dance, I generally won't pick this, because both illusory double and power orbs provide more benefits than 300% attack speed. Plus he takes 40% more damage, and cannot move. Illusory double provides some extra damage, and can serve as a distraction. While power orbs buff up Electro Shell, which can provide a prolonged life.
Hey you... Yes you... get over here...

Funny enough, I always pick sword dance. Headbutt is not a must, but i pick it sometimes too ::).

Well, I won't say each abilities I don't pick or whatever, because I have some that I never pick for no reason at all...but if I had to say it...Elementals, I don't like them. None of them.

And I don't know about the "masteries", in theory, they're useful, but I don't know how much they are, so I don't usually pick them.

the elementals

3 characters to control in the endgame is too much already, hence to have up to 6 is a nightmare

I honestly don't know why you made frozen hammer. In galeoths section, there is little reason to pick any other spell; lets see: (Good damage, its Aoe, MANABURN HOLY BE GOD SON (USEFUL INDEED IM LOOKING AT YOU CH 9), big ass STUN) cons: Cooldown is a whopping 2 EXTRA seconds compared to other spells.

Please don't . it's what keeps Galeoth alive most of the time.

Now that magic hammer lost its ability to burn mana; is there now any abilities that can passively/actively burn mana away? If not should we have one ability of such for each hero? And should we also have items that can passively burn mana away? I havent seen one such item before.

phodom - flame barrier-this ability is just weak as compared to others. other 3 abilities goes with some specific item combos like -shield of fire with phodom set/aura of fire/zocmo's set/magic aura, other two also can be combined very well
fradz-double wave- not that much usefull as compared to other spells because of distance mechanics
galeoth-piercing shard-same as double wave
& about new introduced abilites idk.. because i am depending on hero abilites page.
