    Strategy is to start with the 20 guardians in the webway and the farseer, foot autarch, and the dark reapers in the wave serpent. The dark reapers may end up in the webway too depending on if I think the opponent's alpha strike can take out the wave serpent or if the reapers are going to have to fire and fade into it after my turn 1.

    The spiritseer is there to quicken the larger squad of shining spears to guarantee their turn 1 assault, although the swiftshround might not be worth it on him. The spears and their autarch will take out blobs and try to charge a valuable target turn 1. The hemlocks and crimson hunter will do what they do and blow tough stuff up. The wave serpent can assist the guardians and pick them up when they drop to 10 or less units. The farseer will try to buff up the most vulnerable unit (likely guardians or the large spear squad) and doom a priority target.

    Since Quicken appears important to your strategy, you could look into switching the Spiritseer to a Warlock. Then you can use the Seer Council stratagem to get a +1 to cast it. That and a reroll helps to cast and/or get a higher roll to make it more difficult to deny.

    It's not a bad swap but since the spears only really need to be quickened once, the spiritseer/warlock turns into a smitebot after round 1 and it's worth the extra 10pt to get full smite.

    But you're right in that quicken could make or break a game depending, and so it might be better to bring a warlock, it's a tough question.

    This looks like a great list!

    The only thing that confuses me is the alaitoc autarch on foot. I don't really understand giving him the incomparable hunter warlord trait because your guardians are going to need the alaitoc warlord trait puritanical leader to keep them from losing a lot of mans to morale. You could also switch the shiftshroud of alanssair to the autarch so he could deep strike with the guardians or generally go where he's needed. I don't think the spiritseer will need the shiftshroud because all the runes of battle spells have an 18'' range and the spiritseer moves 7'' so the seer will have no problem matching the initial 22'' move by the shining spears.

    Another thing to consider is dropping the alaitoc autarch in favor of a couple of warlocks to get some redundancy for quicken on the shining spears and it would let you use the seer council stratagem.

    Anywho just some things to think about. You've got a good list. I say go playtest it and figure out the couple things you need to optimize your strategy.

    Incomparable hunter goes with his reaper launcher to snipe characters from the backline, he's a poor man's Maugan Ra.

    The 20man guardian squad is there to deep strike on some blob that needs dead and will be protected with fortune and celestial shield and maybe LFR if needed. Wounds will go to the platforms first making the squad even harder to kill.

    The goal is for them to take out their points in models in their first round though.

    That list looks scary. Personally I think anyone who isn't fielding at least 1 Dark Reaper for every 100pts in their list is missing the boat, but that list is super fast, shooty, and hard to hit. If you actually play it, can you let us know what beats you ever? I know all lists are beatable, but Eldar seem particularly difficult, especially when there are a lot of DR's on the board. Looking forward to any batreps you post with this list.

    I'd try to get a 9 man SS instead of just a 6.
    Drop down to 1 autarch on a skyrunner with nova lance and reaper launcher. That should do it.
