    Almost no other army in the game right now can perform effective 2nd turn charges.
    not sure what you meant by while also being able to charge on the turn it DS as that's not allowed anywhere except for VV IIRC.

    Any army with Drop pods can DS Safer and AlphaStrike just as hard if not harder.

    It's about time Daemons got some love, they've been hard up for a while.

    If i wanted to use this list for one of next year's 40k Throne of Skulls at Warhammer World, how would you change it to fit 1500pts?

    i just dont get it. how does the super list deal with flyers? No AA means theres a couple hundred safe points for the enemy. Much more if its the necron airforce.

    Irrelevant. Most anything will win combat against flamers and the majority of this army, preferred enemy or not. Tzeentch sucks in assault, though screamers are nasty. When you get hit with 9D3 wound on a 4+ ignore armor from overwatch, you generally don't successfully reach assault. This is a shooting game until you kill the flamers.

    You can't use Warp Quake if the Daemon player gets first turn. They also have Warp Fire, so even if they can't hit you with the templates they can still hurt you at range.

    Nice list tailoring there. In practice, most people aren't going to have multiple super-cheap throwaway unit to do this with that are conveniently in exactly the right place to make this happen. They're probably going to have to sacrifice a combat squad of Marines or something, which is still better than a full unit but certainly not cheap.

    Can work. Just because a list can be beaten doesn't mean it isn't powerful, and all those non-GK players are still in trouble.

    It ignores flyers. It has an aegis line that might kill one or even two enemy flyers if you're lucky, but otherwise, you have so many multi-wound, eternal warrior models with invulnerable saves that you can literally just ignore the enemy flyers because they don't have enough guns to kill you generally.

    Flamers and Screamers are seen by many as the two best units in the game right now, funny how a simple White Dwarf update can turn a decent 6th edition army into a near unstoppable wall of death....
