HQ: Necron Lord with warscythe, VOD, Phase shifter 200 PTS
Necron Lord with warscythe, Resurrection orb 150 PTS
Troops: Necron warriors x13 234 PTS
Necron warriors x14 252 PTS
Elites: Pariahs x8 288 PTS
Heavysupport: HeavyDestroyer x2
Fastattack: Destroyer x5
Ok. This works like this: Lords move with pariahs and other lord gives them well be back, other deep strike with them and Orb lord comes deep strike too(im not sure is this possible). Destroyers give covering fire for the warriors, and heavy destroyer hunt strong units and tanks.
This is my first 1500 PTS list and i have played 2 games.
I think this works.

Welcome to LO Tupi. And to the Necron Tomb here. Hope you have a great stay!
Unfortunately, one thing that could make pariahs unbelievably awesome (teleporting with the Veil of Darkness) is not allowed. VoD only works with "necron" units. As such Immortals tend to be the unit of choice for comboing with the Veil. Generally speaking players prefer immortals to Pariahs for the increase in durability, inclusion in phase out, and general ability to work with the rest of the army.
I'm a bit up in the air about using two lords at this point in time. It can allow a great amount of flexibility, however Lords are expensive. Even if I did take two, I would NOT put them in the same squad. Lords are a powerful support option for our other forces, and the chance of having them all wiped out at once is not to be taken. As for both going with the teleportation, I'm pretty sure they do, as the lords are both part of the "unit."
Heavy destroyers are fine. Try them in one unit, but also try having two squads of one, flying side by side (a bit rough on killpoints, but potentially more survivable).
Generally speaking I have to say you are running yourself low on warriors. Three squads of ten is the standard these days for a 1500 point list. Minimum squad size is necessary in 5ed. As one small unit of assault troops can charge in and kill a few of our models, then sweeping advance the rest, annihilating the unit and costing you far more bodies than it's worth.
Destroyers work fine in one big unit of 5. They work even BETTER in two squads, usually of three, but more are always better. There are several reason to have multiple squads, and apply to almost any Necron unit.
1. More shots
2. More flexibility shooting. You aren't using up all your shots on one target, just to have half of them go to waste, and if a target doesn't die, you have another volley to try with.
3. More Durability. Since the enemy has to focus a reasonable volume of firepower to bring down a squad, they can't focus well on shooting down TWO squads. Also if one squad is wiped out, and you have another squad right next to it, any necrons from the destroyed squad can get WBB and join the second squad.
Best of luck.
Ty for help.
