Which would you preffer? What items to take? why?
Well it all depends on who you're going to be fighting really...
Agreed, and I'm sure some people have had plenty of luck with magic...and the complete opposite. Generally I'll take a Slann, although I haven't played a match with my carni using the new book yet.
EDIT: For instance, if I'm playing my friend who's a vicious VC general, then I'll take my slann because without him doing damage is difficult not to mention I'll get messed up in the magic phase.

Eternity Guard (SM) W-15/L-5/D-3
Lizardmen w16/ L1/ d2 :On hiatus since new rules... =/
These are my general builds for each:-
-BSB (This in a unit of TG with another solid unit of saurus nearby make for a stoic combat line)
-Focus of Mystery (Just to make sure you get that all important spell that you may miss otherwise)
-The Focused Rumination (A must for any competant slann)
-Cupped Hands of the Old Ones (With so many die being thrown around why not protect yourself from the eyes of Sotek)
-Bane Head (Great for character assasination when used in conjuction with lore of metal/death)
-410pts (Relatively cheap for a Lvl 4 wiz BSB with 5 wounds and a 4+ ward save)
-Light Armour (Whats a general without armour)
-Scimitar of the Sun Resplendant (Couple of bonus attacks)
-Enchanted Shield (0+ Armour save is too good to pass up)
-Glyph Necklace (5+ Ward save for those pesky canon balls)
-460pts (Again good value for points here, you get 7 str 5 attacks, 4 str 7 attacks, 0+ armour and a 5+ ward)
There are numerous builds out there, as said previously it all depends on who you might be playing, these are just two general builds that can be effective in most circumstances.
Hope this helps.

Give the Slann the standard that causes any wizard within range of it (I believe 18"), to take a stupidity test. Chances are, with VC, any vampire will have some magic. I know the numbers say that he in all likelihood will pass his test, but you only need him to fail once or twice to turn the battle in your favor.
Take the magic item that auto ends the enemy magic phase as well.......save it for later in the battle when he REALLY needs his magic to come thru for him to deny him it.
The Cube of Darkness and Plaque of Dominion are good options against VC and DE, although I prefer to put the magic standard in the TG unit just to keep the slanns points down. The only problem i feel with the cube is that you get a 1 use item that only works every other game. But can be a real game winner if it comes through for you, remember if after casting power of darkness a DE sorceress fails to use all her extra power dice, she takes a str 4 hit for each one that remains (very nasty if it is successful).
After talking the cube up a little, it is important to remember that it will not always work, I do believe it should only be taken under certain circumstances.
Also against high leadership armies, i believe the plaque of dominion should be left in vaults of your temple city, as their are more viable options out there.
hope this helps

I must admit, the look on a VC generals face when you tell him his magic phase is at an end after having his first invocation dispelled is priceless.
I was watching a DE vs Lizzies once and on round 3, a DE Supreme Sorcerress and a Lv 2 Sorcerress both failed their stupidity tests from the Plaque of Dominion on round 3, during a pivotal moment of the battle. The points were pretty close by the end and losing the two of them for a round were probably the factor. Passed every other test though.
I really like the plaque of dominion. In the games that I have used it, it usually only works once or twice, but that can be enough to turn the battle in your favour.
I like the two builds that were up there. As to which to use, I like both and switch up on a normal basis, as well as using an oldblood on a cold one.
Blade of Realities
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
