World Dragon doesn't overly concern me. That unit becomes target priority number one for 10x Salamander flame attacks each and every turn. Since the unit is T3, they get burned up quite easily.
So yeah, Caradryan sitting next to Tickles is annoying, but it's not the end of the world, Since both frogs can cast "Shrivel up and die" in the same phase and make him tempt the law of averages.

If you do get lucky and the spell goes through you'll get an average of 5 hits, so about 4 wounds (yay he's dead)... but since I've only ever seen Teclis used with Caradryan standing right by him he'll be getting a 4++ ward against teh effect because of MR3: so you should only cause 2 wounds (he should live)... and then there are those evil bastards who have Teclis in a unit with the banner of the world dragon.. so he's utterly immune to all magic anyway (there's a reason I still havent beaten HE with my ogres in 8th... managed it with WE, but not vs Teclis).

On the other hand, I now never bother with Hellblasters. Too random, whereas Helstorms and Mortars just tear apart hordes.

A couple problems I see off the top of my head from other common cheesy builds.
What do you do against teclis or anything with book of Hoeth and purple sun? What do you do against anything power scrolled?
I don't see how this could stand up to a dwarf artillery line /w Thorek slowing everything down or an empire artillery spam with mass warrior priests/arch lector/lvl 4 wizard (waaaay too many dispel dice). Even something as simple as a steam tank can throw a nasty wrench into your list as even the stegs will need 6s to wound.
It definitely seems like a nasty glass cannon but your bound to run into the stuff I mentioned above.
The dual frog cannon its an interesting idea, I just think there are better 1 trick pony lists out there.

|Darkness007||It seems to me that giving both Slann the same lore is something of a waste. While being able to cast a hex twice is nice, I’d think that you’d be able to get a lot more by gaining access to more spells. For example, using the lore of life and the lore of light together would allow you to cast earthblood, awakening of wood, flesh to stone, throne of vines, shield of thorns, the speed of light and Birona’s Timewarp all in the same turn due to their low casting costs (which allows to capitalize on your rumination). Sure they’ll counter some of it, but you can be sure getting off some excellent augments. Seeing as your fairly determined to play a single large unit of Saurus, I think it may make more sense to use augment spells rather than hex spells (after all, if you only have one unit, giving them +4 T is just as good as giving every enemy unit -4 S (apart from the armour piercing bit) and it’s a hell of a lot easier to cast a single defensive spell on the unit you want to protect than to cast hexes on every enemy unit in charge range). However, if its working for you, you probably don’t need to change it.|

Vs Gunline is a hard match.
I'm curently 4 for 1 against gunlines in my favour.
You have to play it a lot more offensively and steam across the table with the sallies and stegs. The Saurus block is pretty damn resilient so unless they pour everything into destroying it, you're pretty safe for a few turns. It basically comes down to, how fast can I rip your leadership off you and start burning you with the sallies.
That being said, very few people have realised the insane power of mortars compared to cannons and I haven't faced a fully laid out mortar force yet... can't say as I'm looking forward to it either, I expect to lose rather quickly against that one.
