Alright, I am preparing to go into my second tournament ever. I am letting people vote on which army I should take, but as a contingency plan, I want to post up my potential High Elf list for you guys to critique. Currently I'm looking at a the possibility of maximizing my two favorite High Elf strengths- our Dragon Princes, and the potential for a hellish magic phase.
L2 Mage w/ annulian crystal
L2 Mage w/ barded steed, starwood staff
@ 19110 Archers
8+2D3 PD, 5+D3 DD, +1 to Cast, +1 to Dispell
10 Archers5 Dragon Princes w/ standard bearer, banner of sorcery, musicianshield Teclis and the mage on foot
5 Dragon Princes w/ standard bearer, war banner, musician
@ 400Repeater Bolt Throwerthis is the damage section of the armyGreat Eaglepreliminary shooting to soften the targets, compliments the choice of archersforce multiplier for RBT and Eagle
My biggest fear with this list, is that I am going to be placed against an army which can weather my magic. Also, I'm fearful that this list might be "too small" and not put enough bodies on the field. Initial turns of shooting and magic are going to be critical, as well as charge selection so that I can hit weak(ened) units and break through them.
If you want to change out the units, I have:Tyrion
1 Mounted Hero
1 Hero on Foot
20 Silver Helms
2 Tirannoc Chariots
10 Shadow Warriors
5 Ellyrian Reavers
3 Great Eagles
Other than that, your list seems solid, although I too share your fear of having one of your already fragile units getting blasted off the table by Flamers...

Yikes! Wow- that was a good catch. Those units should be far cheaper, infact, I should have about another 390pts freed up to spend on units. That's not too bad, maybe I'll snap up some Silver Helms, or a unit a of spear-elves.
Any suggestions on where to put these new-found points?
Since your going with cavalry... maybe a unit of Ellyrian Reavers with bows and musician.
And get another RBT and Eagle. With the leftover points... maybe a mounted noble with Ring of Fury.
