First post, be gentle! New player, started with 8th, and have been a huge fan of Death Guard. I've run through many iterations, and I've settle on this one to be a semi competitive take all comes list, CC welcome!

The idea is 2 plague burst crawlers up front tanking aggro and spending a cp to force explosions and the blight spawns right between them for heavy flamer damage, the lord there as well with the arch contaminator and relic plague sword. The hellbrutes provide the anti tank and I can use the shoot twice strat with the dakkabrute and the 2 fist brutes use flamers to assist Frontline in antispam and fists melee murder, and plague marines are the objective takers and infantry/light vehical killers.

And of course Morty is just being Morty(:

Blightspawn are better suited in lists that include pox walkers, allowing them to strike first when charged. Secondly, consider working in a codex CSM patrol detachment for the sorcerer because of warptime. Just a sorcerer and some cultists works out to be under 150 points and with warptime your Morty will be able to do something. Since this list seems more focused on attrition rather than threat overload with princes and drones you need a little more oomph for make morty worth his points.

That is a burly list, and not sure how I'd beat it. My brother just got into the game and decided to play Chaos Marines since I was doing Salamanders. His very first list was very similar to this, the Plagueburst Crawlers in particular are a great unit. At first I thought it odd that you'd use units with such great indirect fire weaopns to tank damage, but with T8 and 12W they are just great at that. The with them, Morty, and the Hellbrutes deciding what to shoot at first is going to be a painful decision for your opponent. Good luck with it, Heretic.
