Warlocks x10
all w/ Jetbikes
x3 w/ Destructor
x2 w/ Enbolden
x2 w/ Enhance


Eldrad (I wondering if he is out of place but I think he is a very good support unit for the army but comes with a huge price tag)

Guardian Jetbikes x6 w/ x2 Shuriken Cannons
Guardian Jetbikes x3 (These stay in reserves and come on to contest or capture an objective towards the end of the game.
Rangers x5 w/ Pathfinders (Sit on an objective and pick off flamer templates and other things coming for my objective and are fortuned with their 2+ cover save)

Eldrad doesn't combine well with Prisms, in my experience. Also, he's going to get sniped - he doesn't have Eternal Warrior. Better not to take him, than take him on foot alone.

Another Jetseer, so you can play Fortune tag, and another Destructor would be better. Then with the last few points take EmboldenLocks for Jetbikes if possible.

What I was thinking with Eldrad was 2 fortunes and guide or 2 guides and a fortune. Also te first turn he would fortune the Seer Counsel. I would also keep him out of LOS via a Hill or building since he doesn't need a LOS to cast the powers in the first place. Is that a good reason or still a NO NO? lol

Your reasoning is sound, but you cannot rely upon the keeping him out of LOS. If you try to get dependant on him, also, he will get Outflanked, or Deep Struck. Eldrad needs something to Guide that can't twin-link itself. War Walkers, Falcons, Wraithlords...that kind of thing. You want the ability to Infiltrate and Scout the Pathfinders, even if you rarely use it.

Divination is godly, but not game-breaking.
