Recently bought an entire "Blood Ravens" Space Marine Army (which I will play as Blood Angels or SMs) as I was after a change from getting thrashed playing my Necrons.
The army contains:
Commander (PW + BP, Power Armor)
Scout Squad (snipers)
3 Tactical Squads
3 Dreadnoughts (Las/Mis)(AC/ Bloodfist) (Las/Bloodfist)
3 Land Speeders (HB + ACs)
Enough Heavy Bolters to transform the tact squads into 2 full HB Dev squads
As you can see the army is very "shooty" and so I wanted to bring an assault element to the force. With this in mind I Purchased Dante, Mephiston and a Sanguinary Guard squad.
My question is; At 1850pts, is it viable to run both Mephiston AND Dante? and if so what other units from my available models would complement these two characters the best?
i would tend to lean no on this. your blowing almost 500 pts on hqs that can be kill easily. ive lost dante assaulting a tac squad and failing the save on a power fist. and mephiston cant be placed in a unit. so you have to make sure to cover him and get him into the battle quickly. but ive always said you should play how you want to. itd be awsome to see how you did so let me know. to compliment dante sang guard as he makes them troops. mephiston doesnt really compliment any specific unit. no boosts or anything. just awsomenessss

A moment of weakness spawns a life tme of heresy...
Mephiston Doesn't need to compliment a specific unit. As a whole, he is one bad mamma jamma, and can walk through an opponents most expensive unit, and his second most expensive unit, and if there is anything left over, he'll eat it for dinner.
This army will work against certain opponents, but like any army, will fail against others.

I;ve played both Dante and Mephiston with the old codex, not with this one yet. It is a HUGE amount of points, but it is really fun. Keep Mephiston behind another unit until he is close enough to assault (or behind a rhino would be better). Dante and Sanguinary Guard complement each other. He makes the Sang. Guard a scoring unit. Plus he has hit and run!!!! Plus the whole unit has a 2+ armor save and all power weapons. Expensive? Hell yes! Fun to play? Same answer!
Play them! If it is no fun for your opponent or you, don't do it again...easy...
Once a Marine, always a Marine.
What do all these have in common?
Marneus + Tigurius
Logan + Njal
Abaddon + Ahriman
Fateweaver + Bloodthirster
Swarmlord + Hive Tyrant
Mephiston + Sanguinor (or Dante)
Shouldn't use them in anything under 2000pts (heck, I wouldn't even use them unless we're playing 2500pts).
