You give an IP to your second canoness. Its a great weapon but she is on foot. Dump the mantle and give her a jump pack or you will never get back the invested points. She can take faith checks on her leadership so she doesn't have to worry about much.
Simply put, 2 exo's are four times better than 1. Don't ask me why but doubles of a unit work much better. In this case it will at least dilute the AT fire you are going to take. And its desperately needed long range S8. I played in a 1500 pt tourney not long ago and ran into 3 devilfish and 2 railheads. You will need it. Anything beyond extra armor on an exo is a waste of points.
The 2 MM rets are debatable. If you can get them into cover midway they can have value. But they will most likely be hit from longer ranged than they can shoot. I recently converted my MM models to heavy flamers. Those models now get paly time .
Your sister units are foot sloggers and they wont have the numbers to survive if they need to march. Flame templates are king in the sisters armies. Tau, Eldar, bugs and guard all hate them. The problem is you lack rhinos to get the most out of a flamer.
Finally the priest is a big meh unit. Frankly, the only time to bring one is probably if you take the sideshow units. He is just too many points and does too little IMO. If you dump him and the holy icon, you are half way to paying for a second Exo.
The only time you put a priest in is when you have zealots in your army cause you can stick the priest with them and run a bunch of eviscerators at your opponent's army.Priest
