    Are Deepstrie Army Lists competitive?

    My question is basically are deepstrike/outflank armies competitive? My army list would look something like this but with points played with to make the Trygons Prime.
    Hive Tyrant-Wings, Hive Commander, Scything Talons, Toxic Miasma
    Zoanthrope 2- Mycetic Spore
    Zoanthrope 2-Mycetic Spore, TL Deathspitter
    Doom of Malanti- Mycetic Spore, TL Deathspitter
    Hormagaunts 20- Toxin Sacs, Mycetic Spore, TL Deathspitter
    Hormagaunts 20- Toxin Sacs
    Genestealers 10- Broodlord
    Heavy Support
    Trygon- Regeneration
    Trygon- Regeneration

    No. The main problem with deep strike armies is finding the anti tank. Pretty much the only options you have are thropes and T-fexs, with the occasional harpy. The problem with that is that against any list with psychic defence you're absolutely screwed. Eldar, other nid lists and any space marine build packing a librarian will give you all manner of problems whilst IG will have too many tanks for you to adequately kill and DE will speed away from the thropes. Lets not forget GK who will simply warp quake and laugh at you before gunning you down.

    However that is pretty much what I believe to be the best deep strike list possible, though personally I think 9 zoanthropes are absolutely essential.
