I went for an overload of magic and a highly defensive list. I know I rely on my shooting and magic to get me through but so far in the few games I've played with it I have held my own. It just feels like it is missing something so I am presenting it to you for some constructive criticism.
All comments welcome

Generally looks good, a few questions and a few comments. Are you allowed Teclis? He's a more cost effective way of getting magic domination. What's the plan with the seaguard? Where are all your characters going to be?
Suggestions wise, I'd drop the standard from the DP as thats 100vp for your opponent to pick up. In terms of the lvl2 mages I'd prefer the seerstaff to ring of corin, just to get a key spell against certain armies in a tourney, though can see you'd want to take out a magic item once his dispel dice are gone. Also if you're planning magic domination, the ring of fury is always good, gets rid of a dispel dice or two, or causes damage! Not quite sure how you'd want to juggle it so you still had enough dispel scrolls.
Lion chariots will need to be hidden, as will the swordmasters, otherwise people will flatten them with whatever ranged stuff they have as they know they're slightly destructive.
Oh and whats the plan against dwarf / empire gunlines?
No Special Characters and I have the luxury of not facing Dwarf or Empire Gunlines in my club, at least for now .
The Chariots tend to be held back and used as a tool to help coral my opponent where I need them to go. People tend to be afraid of 2d6 Str 5 impacthits followed by a slew of str 5 attacks.If they are ignored they get flank and eventually rear charged. If they focus on them then my are dedicating manpower to deal with them making them an effective distraction to slow down the march.
The Swordmasters are held further back and used only as a counter charge force/deterrent to anyone thinking of charging my other blocks. Same goes for the Dragon Princes. They only come out when needed. I understand they are frail but I need some form of melee punch for when they do reach me. I just hope I have done my job and thinned them down enough .
DP's- I forgot to put the Banner of Ellyrion. They have that so if an opponent tries to break up my line with forests then I have nothing to worry about. I'll edit my orginal list and make sure to put that in there.
Archmage and Noble go in Seaguard and Archmage usually hops out when things start getting close, depending on what is threatening them.
One mage goes with Archers and the other with the Swordmasters. If there is minimal shooting then the mages and archmage generally roam free behind my lines or with the bolt throwers. All depends on what I face.
To the Ring of Fury....that is one thing I wish I could get into this list....I LOVE it. I like them both but I would only have one Dispell Scroll if I took it. Same goes for the Annulian Crystal. I am not sure if I want to sacrifice the Reaver bow Noble. He is a workhorse that is amazing, generally hitting on 2's and posing a threat to almost anything on the field with 3 Str5 hits.
If I could only get one more hero.... .

Thats pretty much my style. I'd suggest being slighty bolder with the DPs, as long as they don't line up against warmachines or monsters they do pretty well.
The main risk for you is lack of numbers! I'd be tempted to drop one lower level mage as your archmage will be using most of the dice to make spells irresistable, also you have plenty of magic defence, and use the points to add an extra 2 DP and various extra SM and seaguard.
Also I like putting the RB noble in a non-shooty unit so he can pick his own target as he's good for shooting different things to archers / LSG. Also the low level mage can either hide in units to add rank bonus, or stand around with RBT crews so they're not too vulnerable. If he's hiding for rank bonus i go with shield of saphery as he can only target the unit he's in. Though standing behind the noble / archmage and having bears anger would make people a bit nervous!
