Default Vigilus Escalation League

Hey guys! I'm just getting back into 40k after being gone since pretty much the end of 4th ed. To get back in I decided to start building a T'au army and to do so along with the Vigilus Ablazed escalation league. The escalation league starts off at Power Level 20 and then increase by 20 every two weeks up to PL 80 (so 20/40/60/80). Below I'll list what I've already bought and plan to use for the PL 20 weeks and would love some feedback on the list and ideas on what to get in the following weeks.

(Start Collecting Tau box)
-3 XV8 Crisis Suits
-10 Fire Warrios
-6 Drones

-10 Pathfinders
-1 XV104 Riptide Battlesuit
-1 Commander Battlesuit
-1 XV95 Ghostkeel Battlesuit
-Drones that come with the above boxes.

So without further ado, my PL20 list.

Patrol Detachment: T'au Sept.

HQ: PL 3
-Hover drone
-Warlord w/ Through Unity, Devastation
-Seismic Destabiliser signature system

Elites: PL 13
XV8 Crisis Battlesuits
-2x XV8 Crisis Shas'ui w/ 3x Burst Cannons, Advanced Targeting System
-1x XV8-02 Crisis Shas'vre w/ 4x Fusion Blaster, 2x Shield Drones

Troops: PL 4
Strike Team
-4x Fire Warrior w/ Pulse Rifle and Photon Grenades
-1x Fire Warrior Shas'ui w/ Pulse Rifle and Photon Grenades

Strike Team
-4x Fire Warrior w/ Pulse Rifle and Photon Grenades
-1x Fire Warrior Shas'ui w/ Pulse Rifle and Photon Grenades

Total: PL 20.

Should I change the suits at all to be more equipped to deal with high armor saves like Marines or are they fine as they are for this list? My plan for when upgrading to PL 40 is to upgrade the Ethereal to a Coldstar XV86 w/ 4 fusion blasters and add in the Riptide. Any thoughts or suggestions on the list and the future lists for the league would be appreciated!
