Ok so I have a string of tournaments coming up and after play testing my DE I have two possible lists I'm thinking about.
List one

HQ
Haemonculus w/ LG and power axe

Elite
3 units of 3 trueborn with 2 dark lances

Troops
4 units of 5 warriors 1 blaster in a dual cannon venom

9 wracks, acothyst upgrade, agonizer and a LG in a raider

Fast
2 units of 6 reavers with 2 heat lances

Heavy
Ravager trip lances

2 razorwings with flickerfields

Fortifications
Bastion with commas relay

List two
HQ
Haemonculus LG & power axe

Elites
Same as above

Troops
3 warrior squads kitted out the same

9 wracks LG in a raider

Fast
2 units of 6 reavers 2 heat lances

10 scourges 4 haywire blasters

Heavy
Same as above

I personally like both lists I'm leaning more towards list 2 mainly because I like the scourge models. But I also like the comms relay for getting my fliers in earlier. Both lists have performed well against SW, GK SM BA orks and nids. Only really failing against a friends teleporting Necrons. C&C is welcome and the tournament is April 20th.

Depending on the terrain you are expecting. Low terrain means first one is better, but other vice the second. I wouldn't bother with acothyst for wracks. Haemy already gives you the LD bonus and agonizrer is not that great any more.

Ok I'll probably drop the acothyst then. I'm leaning more towards the list with the scourges mainly because in my local meta, primarily due to me mech is still being widely used. Once the rule book came out everyone pretty much dropped their mech claiming it was too easy to kill I came up with a 5 land raider blood angel list and suddenly mech was back. If I knew I would be playing nothing but swarms or next to no vehicles I'd pick the first tho. Lemme go back and rework something's with the freed up 30 points.

A basic Haemon is LD 8 same as Wracks.

I like list 1 the best. Sorry this is edited. Completely missed reading your list correctly. I still like list one the best as I think the scoring units are stronger and more viable.

Bastions really aren't that good for DE. The army relies on its mobility, and if you have an element that's just sitting around, well....case in point. I like the first list more, because it has more troops. I really don't like Reavers at all, but people on this forum love them, so whatever. As far as your heavy support, you already have enough anti-infantry, so you don't need Razorwings. You can argue anti-air all you want, but the fact remains that it is a 3HP AV10 flyer with 2 lances that is WAY overcosted compared to Nightscythes or Vendettas. Really, you're better off dropping them down to Ravagers, and using the points from that and dropping the Bastion to get some rides for the Trueborn. Also, Wyches are going to do a lot better for you in pretty much every facet than Wracks. And on the Haemonculus, there's really no point in having a power axe, because against any decent CC unit he'll die, and you don't want him in combat anyway to give up warlord.

That's my 2 cents, with just a little modification this list could be really good.
