I would recommend he drops eldricth storm as vs BA its not going to acheive much. especially as he'll likely be casting mindwar whenever possible.
spirit stones on the serpents is a good idea, keeps it moving and allows it to hide if it gets rocked and needs to get out of the way. Not sure if the serpent is needed at this points level, although i'm guessing he's using it because he has the model.
