Threw this together with sort of a competitive mindset, let me know what you think. I used to play dark eldar before their 7th ed codex, but after it dropped I stopped playing them.

Venom
                                     
                               
                               Wraith Host (1075pts)

                                           Wraithknight (295pts)

I don't know much about the wraith host, but since you already have the wracks and 1 venom, would it be worth finding room for another venom and running them as a scalpel squadron? I realize that without upgrades they aren't that likely to score you that first blood. If it does happen there's the possibility for a few VPs. Guaranteed first turn deep strike is cool, and the option for null deploying (not that your army is tailored for it) against a shooty army could be occasionally decent?

Wraithguard are bulky iirc, so I assume it's not there to carry them. If this doesn't sound good to you, why take so many wracks? Certainly the WWP haems with wraithguard is potent and will make enemies out of a lot of your friendly opponents \m/

The wraithost has to consist of those units and they gain battlefocus. The wracks are there to take care of any infantry, with the scytheguard being assigned to and heavy infantry.

Oh I see, each of the wracks has a venom with dual splinter cannon. I think I misread scanning through the list quickly. That certainly puts out some shots against the infantry.

Exactly, and all the D will be able to take care of even a knight, and there are enough of them that they won't be taken out before they accomplish something, especially since they're deapstriking. I can't wait to test it out on vassal, I unfortunately have nobody to play with in person

I would (and have) take 2 D-scythes and one wraithcannon unit. one WWP and 2 fast attack Raiders to transport WG. I doubt any apgrades for WL is of any benefit.

Use The spiritseer agressively to grant reroll to hit (both shoot and cc) for WK and WG.
