The only place I can think of a mine being useful against vehicles is a squadron of three Sentinels...but then you're wasting it to maybe kill about fifty five points, if you're lucky

No. A mine can only drop on one wyvern, as they are counted as separate units from the second they are deployed.  Same with all vehicle squadrons.
The mine is near useless against monsters and vehicles.  rare exceptions (a unit of talos for example) stand out, so the mine is best used on... other Dark eldar. Go Figure.

I forgot Wyverns act separately, i agree its less likely but i'm saying there are some that do and THEN you would use it on them.  A bomber doesnt have to bomb a single tank.

Dont forget that Artillery are also a vehicle

I wish artillery was a vehicle.
I was running earthshaker batteries as catachan for the reroll, and was shown that no, they are in fact not vehicles. At least they do not have the vehicle keyword. They are, however, deployed as a squadron like wyverns, so the bomb is still useless against them.

Having recently had my Voidraven at a tournament, I would say most armies there is something decent to drop the bomb on. Two of my five games there was a shot that would kill the full points of the Voidraven in one bomb, and the other three games twice had an OK target, and once the best was three dice against a key vehicle.

It is possible your opponent can design a list to avoid them being effective, but the Voidraven is likely well down the list of priorities.

I love Voidraven's, for 13 points of difference from the ravager, you gain 2 wounds and hard to hit.
I never see anyone really mention dark scythes which i always seem to have great success with, pretty much guaranteed 3 shots, possibly 6, I know its less Damage per shot but mine always seem to pull through for me causing enough damage, while being a bullet magnet too.
The mine is just a bonus if even just for the psychological warfare on the table.

Got to admit though the new CA is pretty poop!, my dark heart is broke again lol

Any of the faction entries with only 1 stratagem are in the works for 2018 according to one of the reliable sources I have.

The mine is great against entrenched units like Dev's in cover for example. The trouble is getting over them as they normally sit far back. Then there's the thing of not flying off the table -_-

Though I also recently went to a tournament with 3 Voidravens xD One of my games was against a single Reaver and then Necrons. It were only those two games that the void mines didn't make an absolute mess of units. Such as Sanguinary guard, Dev's, Hellblasters, entrenched tact' squads and the sorts. They are amazing against units like that.

To be honest the little attention in CA doesn't bother me, I actually look forward to it as I really want a 20 strong unit of Hellions pouring out of the webway and making a mess of things. Just that stratagem alone makes me want to take units I otherwise wouldn't.
