Alrighty!

That Farseer actually is costing you 135, as the Farseer's bike is a 5 more expensive than the Warlocks'. He'll need Spirit Stones to cast more than one power in a turn. I'd also see if you can squeeze in a few more Warlocks, possibly 6 altogether. 1 Embolden (helps not break and helps powers go off), 1 Enhance, and 4 Destructor (if you take this power consider Doom over Mind War, it helps with the wounds).

Those are pretty reasonable Jetbike troops as is, but considering your overall lack of S 6+ I would suggest dropping a single Jetbike out of each one to include 2 Shuriken Cannons in each squad. That would net you several more shots to take down Rhinos and such.

Also, even with Enhance these are still just Guardians we are talking about here. Faster, weaker, more expensive Marines. That is all that Enhance makes them. Also, that is alot of points to invest into a squad that is likely to break after 2 wounds. So, I would consider Embolden instead to help make sure they don't break and run.

You could lower the Vypers to Scatter Lasers to help with infantry and light tanks and leave the big ones to the Council and Fire Prisms, or you could leave the Hordes to the Destructor Warlocks, Prisms, and the ShurCan bikes. Either way you have options and either way it could work out fine.

You will likely not be needing 3 Prisms, so consider dropping one if you need the points elsewhere.

I'd avoid the use of a Fire Pike. That is almost 10 points that only boost one model's effective range a few inches. Instead, it is better just to be sure the squad is closer those few inches by use of a transport. If your transport does go down, then you can probably expect these guys not to get a shot off at all. Fire Dragon Exarchs are almost always overkill, but the really for the price of one with both powers and a fire pike you could almost have 2 more Dragons which will boost your effectiveness much more.
