Seems fairly decent if not a little boring, but if you're new nothing about this game is boring.

Whether you are new or not, are you aware of the new FAQ which forces units inside transports to Snap Fire the turn their transport Jinks?  For some people this makes Raider spam less effective, to the point of it being obsolete.  Others, of the less doom and gloom variety, take it on the shoulder and just play a little differently.  

There is a thread on the tactics subforum detailing how to utilize raider spam in today's meta and still be fairly competitive.  Part of the new strategy would be to boost in quick to drop troops on locations before the boats get popped, since gunboating is hampered by the changes to Jink.

Otherwise, this seems like a reasonable take-all-comers list with some good AT and AI, just be careful with the Incubi, they are not Terminators.

I have found that the Razorwing is a good AI platform, but a bad AT platform. Because of this I usually run dissies and the SC, but if you feel the AT is needed then you do you.

Your list as written is not legal and probably over points when fixed.

Warrior squads can't take weapons from the Heavy Weapons list at less than 10 models.

Take the blasters off the warrior squads. Splinter rack gunboats should be full of Splinter Rifles. I'd be tempted to drop the Cannons as well for points efficiency.

Wyches are awful. I really tried with a squad like that when I first restarted my DE and they're just a big useless waste of points.

With the points you save I'd look at adding another Ravager or two.
