I'll start by saying that I'm really only good with the jetbikes and such of my own lists, but I will tell you that some things have changed since 5th, so your army will be build different.

Avatars are no longer HQs, they're Lords of War. Warlock Conclaves are HQs (no longer 'free HQs that don't count as anything'). 1-10 Warlocks must stay in a single group together as a Conclave. Guardian squads can choose to add Warlock Leaders, like sergeant upgrades.

Where can I get the rules updates? Do I need to buy codex craftworlds? Would This still be viable pointswise, the warlocks will be going with the guardians and eldrad with the wraithblades, avatar with the storm guardians running alongside. Is there enough close combat punch in the list? Is there enough shooty? Looking on it i would say it might struggle with flyers. And I'm beginning to wonder wether having the avatar and eldrad is a bit overkill
