Tau will effectively block your assaults with drones/piranhas/kroot though and really, DE want to be 30"+ or 42-48" away. This allows them to spam DLs whilst avoiding the majority of Crisis suit damage. Add in nightshields and you get an extra 6" :).

The only real DE army which can be considered competitive is still DL Raider spam which maximises your number of Raiders and DLs + 3 Ravagers w/Disens. You can see a sample 2000 list here. This style of army list is very good in 5th due to their saturation, spread of fire, damage potential, scoring potential, nightshield defense and mobility. Everything a 5th ed army can want + more :).
