Enchantress & Maximus vs. Scoundrel & Buriza

Wizard
I recently switched from the Enchantress with Maximus, to the Scoundrel with Buriza for my Archon. I equipped the Scoundrel with multishot and IAS on all slots to maximise chill/freeze procs.

However, it seems that despite the additional damage from Cold Blooded, it takes longer to down packs when using the the Scoundrel. I don't think this is due to damage lost from the Maximus demon, which is presumably low.

It seems either that instead of the enemies bunching up when they attacked the Maximus demon, they now get chilled/frozen before reaching us. This makes them more spread out and take longer to kill. Or it could be that I'm taking more hits/knockbacks, as I take more attacks directly without the demon to tank.

Any opinions on Enchantress & Maximus vs. Scoundrel & Buriza, or tips on ways to maximise kill speed with either option?
i use scoundrel with buriza. seems pretty awesome here. in archon i have about 195k sheet dmg so i just melt anything under mp5 and even that gets smacked pretty hard in archon form.
Soundrel for mopping up low MP. 3% CC plus whatever bow trick you want to use.

Enchantress for survival in higher MP. Maximus demon-tank.
Scoundral and Burizo. - Might try Windforce out

Well, I noted in the past that enchantress' push and erosion do a lot of damage if you stack her intelligence, which is what she casts the most for me, so that could be part of it. I had her intelligence stacked higher than mine until yesterday.

Don't use windforce on your scoundrel unless you're farming in archon. It knockbacks things out of your twisters.
