Here is a pure DE list I would like to try, as i think it is quite balanced and flexible.
The BlastArchon may begin the game either with a squad of Heat lances  scourges (better, as he can tank the wounds for them and allow them one more round of shooting), or inside a Blasterborn Raider.
The HWB scourges start the game on the table, hidden behind terrain if you go second.

Depending on the number of lances you need on turn one, and the fact you go first or second, you can reserve the KW raiders (1 + 1 lance shots), the Blasterborn Raiders (4 + 1 lance shots). The 2 venoms should start the game hidden behind cover, out of LoS.
My thoughts are that you should go second and try some sort of null deployment (see other threads on this forum about that) with such a list.
Negating a flank and deep striking reserve units in the opposite back of the enemy when he has started to move is usually rewarding.
Then comes the sky supporting fire with both bomber and razorwing.
CAD will allow objectives grab in the end of the game with one last troop transport (if there is still one which has not exploded...).

The major problem I see will be :
- Tau with ignore cover / no LoS required weaponry... which are always problematic.
- Stompa with meks, repairing the hull damage all along
- quad guns / mortis dread / riptide , all those nasty interceptor + skyfire things which work against flyers AND skimmers ...

Do you see any other fatal flaws or weaknesses on it?

There is no blaster in the 5-man squad because they're meant to stay at long range anti infantry (36")
The KW raiders have sails and a blaster, they need to be in rapide fire range, and able to grab objectives.
Blasterborn raiders are meant to deep strike and shoot, that's why they do'nt have sails.

Blasterborn in raiders: --> in order to get one more lance + WWP Archon if needed
That's why they're not in a venom.
