Hey, this should probably be in the army list section, sure it’ll get moved there soon enough, I’ve only recently started on lizards but have been playing fantasy a while, so I’ll offer what advice I can.

Wow. Well, you'll dominate the Magic Phase, that's for sure.
I would give one of the Skink Priests the Cloak of Feathers to assist with Telepathy.
More than anything, though, the list needs bodies. It has two functions that I can see: 1. Fire off Casandora's Comet and 2. Prevent the Slann from dying.
The Slann is fine. He's a hard nail and will own the Magic Phase. The liability are those Temple Guard. I don't like to see those until 3,000 points. They're a great unit, they're just too expensive. I would ditch the Temple Guard and replace them with Tepok-blessed Saurus. (the Dispel Dice Spawning) If you then drop the Jungle Swarms you can buy another block of Saurus. Maybe even a third.
One of the Skink units should also Scout, for March Blocking, Wizard- and War Machine hunting purposes.
Other than that, the Kroxies and the Salamanders are great.
Risky list? Oh, yes, definitely; but it has immense potential.
WHFB: Dwarfs || WH40k: Imperial Fists, Necrons || WM/H: Trollbloods || BFG: Necrons
As everyone said, you're going to pull out all the magic wahammer has to offer...
But at 2k points you could face a skaven with 200 models, 13 power dice, 7 dispel dice plus 4 dispel scrolls (so almost 2/3 of your magic will not be cast).
If those rats are willing to shoot the slann down, they will succeed in doing so!
And if they do not, what will happen when they get into cc? numbers are so low in this list, that it is impossible for it to stand against a massive army, no matter what magic you throw at the enemy.
I made a "worst case" example, but the same applies for empire (cannons, mortars, handguns... all shooting will be aimed at the slann, and 1s do occur) and O&G (you imagine a fanatic tearing through the temple guard unit? wow)
To sum up, this is a good friendly list, but an awful competitive list, because it is always bad to field too much points in one small unit and too few model to surround it!
Generally speaking, i'd suggest never taking a slann in a competitive game, though i love that big frog!
It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.
