Blood Knights are great because they can be "healed," but their Frenzy can be a serious Achilles Heel to them. They are incredibly strong, though, with plenty of attacks. I'll probably have to agree with you here, MtM, if only with respect to Cavalry.
For infantry, I'll have to say Sword Masters of Hoeth. There are plenty of things that can crumple them (shooting, some magic, etc, all of which seem to be out of the scope of the question at hand), but just considering the Sword Masters themselves, they're renowned for obliterating entire units at a time with a minimum number of models.
War Dancers are great, yes, but I like the stability and capability of the Sword Masters just slightly more. Sword Masters' focus overrides the adaptability of the War Dancers. However, I am considering the High Elven army as a whole, too. If I wanted a durable infantry unit, I'd go with Phoenix Guard. If I wanted a can opener unit, I'd go for White Lions. If I wanted a unit to slice swathes through enemy formations, that alone rests in the capable hands of the Sword Masters.
A close second would be Chaos Warriors. They have just as many options as War Dancers (but only with equipment, marks, etc), but they offer a wide array of uses and tactical implications. They're durable and have a heft offensive capacity to boot.
