Questions: Do I need RBTs or Eagles? Am I light on core?

I've not yet seen a HE army without Teclis since 8th came out, so I guess my local gamers are different folks than yours. I dread facing five elves out of six (the sixth being me) now that Blood has rained plastic elves from the skies. I'm sticking with my evil armies.
Take Lore of Life, Dwellers is Teclis's best friend with his strength 2.

That is exactly what I do with my Army. With Brets you get the bonus of the Potion Sacre to go with your Power Stone to force the Miscast/Irresistible.

The World Dragon Banner is less of a worry as it means that unit cannot buffed in any way, no Occams Mindrazor etc etc. Then a unit that size is asking to be Trebucheted, a lot.
