Hey there, I am a DE noob myself, but if you do not mind I will test my gathered knowledge and let others comment and correct me if I am wrong.

I would change FF on Ravagers for Nightshields. You will always be moving your Ravagers for half-an-inch to get a jink save so FF gets redundant.

I do not think that Klaivex is a good investment. I would go with 5 vanilla incubi or 4+Archon with PGL.

Wyches in venom should never see combat IMHO, so I would remove Hekatrix. They will die with or without her in such small numbers. Either join them into a raider, get a haemi with liquifier, assault from the Raider with the pain token and without the Haemi and then flyby liquify with the Haemi.

Warriors with Racks are fairly solid, although against some enemies the splinter racks will be underwhelming. I liked them agains Nids, but they did next to nothing against MeQs. Venomspam Warriors seem to be more effective IMHO.

However the base logic behind the list seems good to me. Maybe a blasterborn unit would be nice. I find that having as many Lance equivalent hits as possible really pays out.

You don't really need FF on ravager. Jink save and all that. Nightshields are a better option. If you have 10 points then throw a couple missiles on the razorwing. Pretty strong otherwise. I normally throw in some blasterborn in a venom for some extra AT but with the wyches and ravagers and reavers you have a good bit.

Only reason I thought of FF was against pesky Tau or grey knight immolators ignoring cover.

I had thought about using a wych squad in a raider, but figured between incubi and venom wychs that would be too much cc in such a fragile army. The main army I am fighting with would Grey Knights, not even sure how to handle them being amazing at everything.

Truthfully I had wanted to fit in the 4th Raider, but ran out of points quickly.

Hang back and pew pew GKs. If you get them out of their cans the reavers can mess things up pretty quick.

Bladevanes. Those things are amazing. Also remember that wounds come from the models closest to the reaver after the movement so you can pick off things if they try and hide them in the back. Just be sure your reavers can get to a good spot so that the GKs can't get to them. Patience is key with them.

so in your opinion should I drop venom wychs change them to raider wychs and drop one warrior raider and make it a trueborn venom/warrior venom? still gives me 4-5 troops, 2 larger cc units, trades one raider for one venom

I am good with venom wyches. They can get in quick and the venom can lay down plenty of poison. I would but that is just me. I am a venom guy. There are other schools of thought though.

Venom wyches are pure AA hunters with Haywires. No Hekatrix. Just 5 vanilla Wyches. I use them for AA kills. But I do not expect any other role from them. Sometimes they can make a dent if they combocharge with Incubi
