Ummm...I think you have some sums wrong somewhere...firstly the list totals 747 points.
Secondly, the Banshees are 187...I assume this means a Serpent w' Scatter Lasers?

Sorry about that, I did forget to put the Wave Serpent in the post. I edited the post so it's there now.

I'd recommend giving your DA Exarch 2 catapults instead, if they get into CC then your other units have let you down big time. Bladestorm would be a good thing to tack on too if you have the points.

Take a stand on your Dire Avengers, if they are going to be CC (which looks most likely) then give them defend, if they will just shoot then give them Bladestorm.

Thanks for the advice. I'm gonna have to drop some points somewhere else to give the exarch an ability since I'm already at 1007 points (most people I play 40k with don't care if someone is a little bit over). I'll update the list and post it again here.

Wow, did I forget to put the Rangers in the post too? When I post the updated list I'll put them in.
EDIT: Apparently I missed something else too. Unfortunately I have the trial version of Army Builder and can't save, so I had to remake the list from memory and reading this post, and it adds up to 943 points before any changes are made.

Default Updated List

OK, so here's the new list.

HQ:
148 pts - Farseer
Singing Spear, Spirit Stones, Fortune, Guide, Mind War

Troops:
152 pts - Dire Avengers x10
Exarch with 2 Avenger Shuriken Catapults and Bladestorm
240 pts - Rangers x10
Upgrade to Pathfinders

Elites:
268 pts - Howling Banshees x10
Exarch with Mirrorswords and War Shout
Wave Serpent with Shuriken Cannon and Twin-linked Bright Lances

"Eavy Support
140 pts - Wraithlord
2x Flamer, Wraithsword, Brightlance

Apparently I did something wrong right from the beginning because this still only adds up to 948 points. Any suggestions as to what to do with the last 52 points?

You might want to give the Banshees Acrobatic just in case.

It looks pretty solid, I would take off mind war though and give him stones and RoWitnessing. And split that ranger unit, unless you have a plan. That way you have two units that can sit on objectives in cover and watch as your opponent expends there fire power into those two units.

As for the extra points....maybe a unit of Guardian jet bikes, but you would have to rearrange your list even more, and I learned that half the time the people on the internet don't have the same mind set as you and led your list off into a place you didn't want it.
