unto all the servants of the c'tan take this knowlege and go forth and harvest....
(really my step brother and I made this up and think it's really good any critiques would be appriciated or any thanks for showing off a nice mean list for the good of all necron players would also be nice)
gaze of flame, rez orb, lightning field
d-body, phaze shifter, rez orb warscythe
3 heavy destroyers
3 heavy destroyers
3 heavy destroyers
the basic idea is that the dbody lord and the wraiths jet across the field engage and destroy fast units and or heavy support (9 * 4 attacks from wraiths on the chargehitting on 4's or 3's and wounding on generally 2's + 4 warsacye attacks hitting on 4's or 3's and wounding on 3's or 2's wiht no save, the group init for a sweeping advance is 6 so will useually ace a unit and hopefully lock another if not the group save is 3 invul and the lord has 4 invuln, wbbb brings the survivability quite high. the hd's fire off 9 las cannons a turn to melt IC's or vehicles and almost never need a rez orb nearby at t5 coupled with great mobility.
the core of the army slowly advance to the middle of the table for optimum shooting with the gof and the lightning field selling an assault at a dear cost. against a very fast assaulty army the wraiths and d-lord can redirect to hammer on assault marine or eqivalent trying to hit the main body or cut down whats left after 9 str 9/ap2 shots.
the list works well aginst blood angels (assalt masters imo) and rapes weaker shooty armies.
again any thought on improving or attaboys for posting a lethal list for all to use is appriciated.

Might want to cut down on the heavy destroyers go with 3 squads of 1, keep them within 6" and they can still make WBB but can target 3 seperate units and frees up 390 points to throw in to elites to round out your force or more warriors to increase your overall mass. Aside from that, should be a lot of fun running those wraiths around snatching up any shoot bits
That looks like a fairly solid list. The only thing I'd be wary of are stand and shoot armies or full on CC armies. "Balanced" armies (with CC and long range dedicated units) should be easier to deal with. 9 Heavy Ds are going to get 6 hits a turn (statistically). They are great against vehicles, but lousy at taking down troops. Admittedly, that's what the DLord and Wraiths are for but if the army is large enough, you'll run into trouble.
Facing this army with a shooty army (Tau, infantry heavy IG), I'd do this:
If I win first turn, turn all my guns on the Heavy Ds, trying to wipe out as many as possible, then let you move and turn my attentions to the Wraiths and DLord. I would go so far as to say I'd commit my entire firing force onto these 4 units and try to cause as much damage as possible.
If I lost first turn, I'd turn whatever vehicle I had left and my foot units onto the Wraiths first. Once that unit suffered damage and made it to CC or got wiped out, then I'd turn onto the Heavy Ds.
It'll be easier to suggest tactics for facing a CC heavy army. Let them get close so you can bring the most number of guns/models to bear. If you charge your Wraiths and DLord off on their own against a Tyranid army or a Khorne army, just count them as lost. Wraiths have high strength and lots of attacks, but with only the Lord's power weapon attacks, CC could very easily go to the opponent.
If you hold off before charging with the DLord/Wraiths, you can use the CC to block LoS from the enemies shooting units and concentrate on the closer CC units.
A Phase Out of 14 is a little low for an 1850, but good use of cover on your Heavy's and quickly reaching CC with your Wraiths DLord should help.

Since it is basically a CC list would some flayed ones be a good idea? since they and infiltrate or deep strike they are surprisingly fast for foot troops.
Maybe use the FO to fill up your elite choice(s).
If you were to put them in I would drop each heavy D squad down to 2 strong and it leaves you with 15 points to play around with.
