No one like writh guard, not a single comment or idea
i was thinking of ditching the warwalkers for more cc i don't thing the wrath lord and avatar are enough so i could add a squad of 6 striking scorpions with exarc biting blade

This is something I've considered with the new rules - how to make an effective iyanden list.
Ideally, the wraithguard will need to be in a wave serpent or they're going to be utterly predictable for your opponent to deal with. This "dealing with" is usually done by calmly walking his troops out of wraithcannon range, although sometimes it'll be done by calmly laying down a couple of ordnance templates and killing your prize troops on a 2+
They're extremely durable in close combat, but offensively, they're only slightly better than a tactical marine. Someone can easily tie them up with a cheap unit and ignore them for the rest of the game, so you might want to get a mounted close combat unit, or some scorpions/shining spears to back them up.
I'd advise splitting the wraithguard into 2 squads of 5 and putting them in wave serpents.
The list is mostly fine apart from the H.Q. choices:
Instead of an avatar, I'd recommend Yriel to support one of the wraithguard squads - there's a thread in the main eldar section about how effective this is, since it makes the unit very nasty in close combat as well. With Iyanden, it's a fluffy choice too
I'd advise ditching the farseer, or having him as the only H.Q. choice and reducing the amount of psychic powers he has (even just giving him nothing but guide to use on the war walkers would be fine, you're never going to use all 3 of those powers). 2 expensive H.Q. choices is too much for a 1000 point army.
