Dark elves don't have +1 to cast, you can only use the dagger once per spell.
While dark elves have rerolls to hit every combat, due to ASF & same I high elves also have rerolls (and strike first) main difference is dark elves have multiple attack models armywide (excluding spearmen and cold ones)
Black guards are not a big deal. When special vs special, all Highelf units can wipe out the Black guard on 1vs1. But as they are stubborn they can hold a few turns.
Also fire lore is devastating against high elves that dont have 2+ ward vs fire. it's hard to counter 3 lvl2 sorceresses with lore of fire getting extradices from power of darkness and blasting away fireballs without dice limits.
