So I have my "competitive" list pretty well set for now. Hemlocks, Spears, Rangers, All Alaitoc

But I play at a more casual LGS that isn't always super cut-throat (outside of tourneys at least) and I want to have a list ready that includes some units I really like, but don't always make the cut in my more competitive lists.
I also do NOT want to use Alaitoc since that immediately bumps most units in power (though that could be in option if I need to crank the list up a bit)

___Battalion___+5 CP
Farseer Skyrunner w/ Doom & Fortune
Warlock Skyrunner w/ Protect/Jinx

20 Guardians w/ 2 Shuricannon platforms
5 Rangers
5 Rangers

Night Spinner

___Supreme Command____+1CP
Autarch Skyrunner w/ Lance, Banshee mask & Reaper launcher (Mark of the Incomparable Hunter & Shimmerplume of Achillrial)
Autarch Skyrunner w/ Lance, Banshee mask & Fusion gun
Autarch Skyrunner w/ Lance, Banshee mask & Fusion gun
WraithKnight w/ Suncannon/Shield & 2 Star cannons

Hemlock Wraithfighter w/ Jinx
Hemlock Wraithfighter w/ Jinx
Crimson Hunter Exarch w/ Star cannons
------------------------------------------------------------------[ 1998 pts] 10CPs

So what CW should I pick? Saim-Hann tends to be my go-to after Alaitoc, mostly because I've been Saim-Hann themed since 4E, but also because it's a pretty 'meh' trait for the units I have, so it works well to tone down the overall power of the list for casual games.
But what about Iyanden? Would be good for both the WK and the Guardians, and to a lesser extend the CHE & Night Spinner

Well, I usually play Biel-Tan when the army is shuriken-heavy.
In your case, Alaitoc is still the best choice.
Iyanden is only really appliable to your Wraithknight.

And the Guardians. Lesser extent to the Crimson hunter and Night spinner.
That might what I go with just for that. I don't have enough shuriken fire for Biel-tan, Ulthwe is redundant for the Hemlocks and Fortune, Saim-hann only makes sense for the Autarchs.

So I think Iyanden it is, Alaitoc if I need to crank it up
