Deflect is basically a ranged parry. Not sure how a training dummy deflects anything, but you can reduce your opponents parry via Expertise.

Because it does?

There's a wee bit of range on HotR, for the secondary targets at least.

Because hammer of the righteous is a ranged attack with a melee range.

Log on PTR and use the hammer on a grandmaster dummy(they're lvl 80, so the combat table will favor their deflects)

But way less accurate and wouldn't explain why it can be deflected, but ignores armor while its GCD is reduced by spellhaste.

ranged instant cast spell that deals unresistable elemental-type damage, thus bypassing armor, to targets within the the range melee attacks are commonly viable?
