question would people either take a fully tooled treeman ancient, a highborn with HODA and bow of athel lorean and some other things or a fully tooled spellweaver with unicorn and wand of the wych elm? cause i gots a tourny this saturday and i would like to know what people think
I think it mostly depends on how you've got the rest of your army set up. If you rely on a maneuverable hit-and-run type army, then an alter noble will fit nicely. For my part, I love putting a decked out treeman ancient down just because it's almost a sure way to make most of the guys I play against sweat.
The option in your list that I've never tried would have to be the spellweaver. I guess it's because I don't really run a magic-heavy army. To me though the mobile sniper noble is a pretty good bet, as long as you're smart with him - easier to do when you're tweaking your army for a specific opponent. For a tournament, the magic arrows get dicey, given the variance in effectiveness among different opponents.
For my part, I will always and forever be a fan of the wardancer highborn with the moonstone and a team of killing machines behind her. Not unique, sure, but this is the unit I have had the most success with. I've even had a bit of fun giving her the blight of terrors.
What kind of list are you taking to this tournament?

As misanthrope09 already said, what kind of army do you have?
A treeman ancient i would say don't take him unless you have a tree spirit army. They have a lot of points in them and a good placed rock or bolt can kill it in a single shot.
a highborn is a very good choice since we can tool them up to do about anything.
Spellweavers are powerfull, but would anly take him if you have no other magic users or defense (think CoR).
So let us know what kind of army you have and what you're oppoents will most likely be. That would help us very much.
Hope it helps

Total: 2000 pts
This is probably way too many points on heros. Right now these guys are accounting for almost 50% of your points, which is a lot of eggs in very few baskets.
As much as I love him, I think the Ancient is a bit of a point sink at 400pts. You could turn this guy into a regular treeman and have enough points to spring for some wardancers (god, I love wardancers).
Unless you've got some specific ideas for your spellweaver, I'd make your Branchwraith level 1 and drop the spellsinger. Again, if you've got specific plans for the spellsinger, that's another story, but I'd at the very least consider demoting him to level 1.
I like the Alter. This guy can unleash some arrowy death and then tear up some flanks.
I like the Branchwraith too, though I've never used the Lamentation of Despairs. I'd be curious to know what kind of success other people have had with it.
Those are my thoughts. To keep this post on topic, I'll refrain from nitpicking your army list, though if you'd like to post it in the Army List section, you'd probably get some good feedback.

right now this army is all the models i have, so i cant really add anything. however i will be adding a full squad of wardancers and buying 2 boxes of dryads to get 3 squads of 12 dryads, which is going to be murder
Whoo! Now that's alotta dryads! I thought I had a lot at 3 squads of 8.
Vaya con dios, amigo. Should be fun.
the reason i would do that, is because thats a whole lot of fear causing models, that can stand up to a bunc of things. also i have have them on each flank and one in the middle and slowly close the gap. besides, its only going to be around 480 pts for that, which is quite alot, but not that much
Heh... my comment was not game-based at all, more a commentary on how tedious it must be to sit down and put together 36 dryads.
Your reasons for wanting to take a lot of dryads are sound. In another thread there's been some discussion about this kind of thing (here (Spamming on unit types.....)).
