I run without any wave serpents in my Harlequins. My list is competitive and can go toe to toe with any list I have faced. This list has evolved from 1000pts to the 1850pt mark where most "tournament" lists sit.
Servants of the Laughing God - 1848 pts
HQ (445 pts)
Farseer - Mantle of the Laughing God, Spirit Stone
Warlock Council - (2 Warlock, 1x Bike, 1x Foot) 1x Singing Spear (on footlock)
Elites (436 pts)
Harlequin Master Troupe - (10 man) Troupe Leader (Power Weapon), Shadowseer, DeathJester, 2x Fusion Pistol, 3x Kiss
Harlequin Strike Troupe - (5 man) Troupe Leader (Power Weapon), Shadowseer, 2x Fusion Pistol, 1x Kiss
Troops (221 pts)
Rangers - (5 man)
Jetbike Squad - (3 man) 1x Shuriken Cannon
Storm Guardians (10 man) 2x Flamer
Fast Attack (60 pts)
Vyper - Scatter Laser
Heavy Support (586 pts)
Dark Reapers - (4 man), Exarch w/ Fast Shot, EML w/ Flak, Starshot Missile on Reapers (flak)
Falcon - Holofields, Scatter Laser
Wraithknight - Sword, Shield, 2x Starcannon
Fortification (100 pts)
Aegis Line - Quad Gun
General style of play: This is a pretty aggressive in-your-face list. The Falcon, Vyper, Wraithknight, storm guardians and Master Troupe usually charge up the field (often in a flood the zone style). The Rangers and Dark Reapers provide cover fire. While the bikes hang back to either grab late turn objectives or provide support where needed. Maugan stands with the quad-gun and the Farseer slips to where it can best use it's abilities (often trailing the forward units).
The list is a decent all-comers list, it has the tools to handle armor, flyers, hordes, etc. I won't say it is an easy list to play, but it is the list that fits my playstyle and has always been competitive.
