Hi Algrim, let's see.
This is a nice list as it is, tbh. It's kinda 5th edition in its behaviour but it will work :)

Regardless, my suggestions (regarding competitivity, not fluff) are as follows:

Archon - what he's going to add to your list? How does he help the court? if you are going to say "Agoniser", try again :) the answer is "nothing". As it is, he's just a point sink. You have 3 options: -ditch him completely and let the court be your Hq choice with the lahmia as warlord
-give him a webway portal, a blaster, remove a lahmia and add 2 medusae. Then you have a nice anti infantry unit, that can take any objective on the field and hit any weak spot on the enemy formation
-swap him with a succubus with glaive and hit melee with her. suicidal, but something is going do die.
I'd go with the "ditch him completely". that would give you some extra points to work with.

triple razorwing: i've always found that the magic number is two. Three razors in reserve are a lot of unreliable points to handle. what if they don't show up until 4th turn? Also, there's a limit on how useful 12 Str 6 Large blasts can be... usually 8 are more than enough to clear the board...not that you lack anti infantry, eh. I'd drop one and use the points to get some haywire blaster scourges. think about those nasty super heavies..scourges are better than dark lances! Otherwise (depends on your meta) a big bunch of jebikes with caltrops are extra tactical and hard hitting to consider. rendind can be deleterious to monsters too, if you face tyranids often...

Triple ravager...meh. Again, two is just enough. With those extra points... i dont' honestly know :p
Maybe, if you dropped the Archon altogheter, a blaster trueborn unit on venom? to add another anti infantry, fast moving vehicle and an antitank unit?

Also, strongly consider taking the grotesquerie formation from the coven codex. they kick asses so hard... grotesques could be the melee monster you need to round up a nice list! (shooting alone is not good, imo)

What do you thik? :)
