HQ:
275 Bloodthirster, Unholy might, BOTBG (wave 2)
Very good for stomping on things. Living things, dying things undead things. Just stomp them good :)

105 Herald of khorn, Chariot, Unholy might, BOTBG (wave 1)

105 Herald of khorn, Chariot, Unholy might, BOTBG (wave 1)
Not a particularly competitive choice. The Herolds of Tzeentch on chariots are in most situations much better as they are faster, more cost efficient and, when given bolt, good vs. mech. Which daemons really can't get too few units of.
Elite:
240 X5 Bloodcrushers, Fury of khorn, Chaos icon, Instrument of chaos (wave 1)
Slow but tough. Excellent fire magnets.
105 X3 Flamers (wave 2)
Hard to use, but they are good if you don't waste them. Use them for suicide runs and keep them out of sight until they are ready to strike.
Troops:
130 X7 Plaugebearers, Chaos icon (wave 2)

130 X7 Plaugebearers, Chaos icon (wave 1)
Icons aren't really needed, but otherwise perfect for grabbing objectives.

90 X5 Horrors, Changling (wave 2)
Horrors are best used in larger numbers where their assault 3 "guns" is a threat to anything. If you don't want/need that drop them for something else or give them bolt.
Heavy support:
160 Soulgrinder, Phlegm (wave 1)

160 Soulgrinder, Phlegm (wave 2)
Excellent choices.
1500 Total

This is my first real try at a deamon list and i want it to be successfull, so any help regarding if i have picked bad choices or can swap anything around to make it better will be great, the bloodthirster is in there cause i have a nicely painted model for it already but i am not bothered about keeping it in the list if getting rid of it will make the army much better, also any comments on if i have made a good choice on what to bring in wave 1 and what to leave for wave 2 (if the gods look down with favor) will also be great

thankyou in advance for the help
Don't commit your army to be set in waves before your 1st turn. You don't have to do it before that so you shouldn't as there are many things that can and will make you change your mind.
Only general advice I can give on this matter is: Balanced waves are seldom very good. Your strategy are already reliant on a dice roll so going all in is often the best solution. But not always. The more you play the better grasp of the situation at hand you will get.

Any questions?

And good luck at the tourney!

I'm not sold on that idea of naked Khorne heralds on chariot.

For 5 points more, you could have the Slaanesh one with might and musk on a chariot, which has a lot of other possible jobs rather than stand in the way of infantry assault. It could, if need be, deal with a Dreadnought (if Rends go your way.)
Totally agree with all you have said. Tbh, if I would take Daemons to a tourney I would give that list a total overhaul. But cookie-cutter is a creation of the devil and the list should do just fine with a few improvements.

You want a cookie-cutter list?

It's something with around 3 units of plaguebearers, 18 fiends, 4 Tzeentch heralds on chariots, 9 screamers, 3 nurgle DP's/ soul grinders and maybe horrors with bolt as more anit mech filler. At least, that's what I think it should look like. But the great thing about daemons is that they aren't as cookie-cutter as CSM, Eldar, DE and such so the tourney lists do have a fair bit of variation built into them.

And again, if you have any questions; shoot.
