    Ok, since you want to win the tournament so badly, I'm going to pick this thing apart unit by unit.
    ==HQ==

    Prince Yriel - 155pts
    Looks good, Yriel is great to have in a Wave Serpent as his template provides a huge threat to any assault squads, or anything else that isn't a vehicle for that matter.

    ==ELITES==

    6 Banshees - 128pts
    -Exarch
    -Executioner
    -War Shout
    -Acrobatic
    Only 6 Banshees? Banshees are only at their most potent with a full squad of 10. I'm going to assume that they ride with Yriel alongside them, but after he explodes on the squad and they finish it off, how are they going to annihilate other squads? Yriel only gets his template once a game, so that's a one trick pony. I've never used Banshees, but people usually don't run less than 10 Banshees in a competitive army. Oh, and Banshees are very much not worth their points without doom on a Farseer, as their S3 will cripple their ability to inflict wounds on targets worthy of their power weapon spam.

    Wave Serpent - 160pts
    -TL Scatter Lasers
    -Vectored Engines
    -Star Engines
    -Spirit Stones
    Vectored Engines are a waste of points. If you need them it means that you were playing poorly, and the chance of an immoblised is only 1/6, so again, not worth it. Spirit Stones are good. Star Engines I'll leave up to playstyle, some people swear by them, I've never used them so I'll leave that up to you.

    ==Troops==

    6 Jetbikes - 152pts
    -2 Shuriken Cannons
    Three of these squads? You've got Wraithlords so this isn't a Saim Hann list if that's what you're going for. The Jetbikes are good, don't get me wrong, but relying on that 12" range for the majority of your firepower is going to cripple your ability to kill anything. I'd drop 2 sets of them for 10 Dire Avengers w/ Exarch, 2x Catapults and Bladestorm in a Wave Serpent.

    6 Jetbikes - 152pts
    -2 Shuriken Cannons

    6 Jetbikes - 152pts
    -2 Shuriken Cannons

    ==FAST ATTACK==

    3 Vypers - 210pts
    -3 Starcannons
    I've never used Vypers before either, but splitting them into groups depending on role, while Eldar style, isn't the most effective for making the opponent make tough decisions. If they rely on tanks, they'll kill the BL Vypers, if they've got Termies/Plague Marines, they'll kill the Starcannons. I'd find points to add another Starcannon Vyper and make them into two squads of 2 SC + 1BL. This makes both squads an equal threat to both types of units and while reducing the effectiveness of the SC's (aka making them nigh worthless when shooting at tanks) your opponents are most likely going to be entirely mechanized if at all, due to most tourney armies being horde or fullout mech these days. If they're hybrid, then the rest of your army can worry about the troops for a turn while you pop the tanks with the Bright Lances.

    2 Vypers - 150pts
    -2 Brightlances

    ==Heavy Support==

    Fire Prism - 180pts
    -Spirit Stones
    -Holo-Field
    -Vectored Engines
    Drop the Vectored Engines and the Holo-Field. The Holo-Field isn't worth it because 2/3 of the results on the chart make the Fire Prism worthless, Weapon Destroyed, Immoblized, Wrecked, and Annihilated all make the Fire Prism either dead or without it's cannon. Some people like Spirit Stones on them, some don't, this one is more up to personal choice.

    Wraithlord - 155pts
    -Brightlance
    -EML
    -2 Flamers
    Personally I love Wraithlords, but both Wraithlords and Fire Prisms operate most optimally in pairs, so I would either drop the Fire Prism for something else, or drop both Wraithlords, pick up another Prism, and spend the points from the lord somewhere else.

    Wraithlord - 155pts
    -Brightlance
    -EML
    -2 Flamers

    So all in the list is 1749.
    Ok, now that comments are out of the way, here's a list using the above suggestions.

    ==HQ==
    Farseer - 98
    ---Doom
    ---Runes of Warding
    ---Singing Spear
    Prince Yriel - 155
    ==Troops==
    10 Dire Avengers - 167
    ---Exarch
    ---Dual Avenger Catapults
    ---Bladestorm
    ---Defend
    Wave Serpent - 170
    ---Bright Lance
    ---Spirit Stones
    ---Star Engines
    6 Guardian Jetbikes - 152
    ---2 Shuriken Cannons
    ==Elite==
    10 Howling Banshees - 192
    ---Exarch
    ---Executioner
    ---Acrobatic
    ---War Shout
    Wave Serpent - 155
    ---Bright Lance
    ---Spirit Stones
    ==Fast Attack==
    3 Vypers - 215
    ---2 Starcannons
    ---Bright Lance
    3 vypers - 215
    ---2 Starcannons
    ---Bright Lance
    ==Heavy Support==
    Fire Prism - 115
    Fire Prism - 115

    TOTAL - 1749
