I was thinking of the cheapest/beardiest/cheesiest eldar list possible (for academic use only). This is the best I've come up with, Can you do better?
2 x 5 pathfinders
3 x 9 harlequin squads with shadowseer (all kisses of course)
1 x avatar
1 x autarch with scorpian chain sword and mandiblasters.
3 x wraithlords with bright lances and eldar missile launchers
That list might win against Godzilla and Necrons but would lose to everything else.
The pathfinders wouldn't get enough kills to justify their points. Nor would the wraithlords which are kitted out to take on tanks and other hard to kill stuff. The harlequins would do alright but would get bogged down and killed (especially if we're talking about a tyranid hoard) and the Autarch would simply not get close enough without some sort of movement upgrade.
"You challenge me knowing that I am Xiahou Dun!?"
You can't bog down harlequins, they hit and run.
And Falcons would work better than Wraithlords, you don't have anything to deal with wraithsight for a start. Falcons can also add some better ranged firepower. Rending can handle a lot of anti-tank as can the wailing doom.
For some ranged anti-tank you can always take vypers with missile launchers. BS3 I know but if you're desperate... and Falcons have the pulse lasers.
(Yes I know removing the wraithlords cuts out anti-tank but wraithlords still don't work in it).

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
tend to agree with boyt, it would loose most of the time, too slow/ inflexible
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Definately if you took out the wraithlords and put in 2 fireprism (I don't know how the points work out though) with eldar upgrades of doom this list would jump in the cheese factor.
Turtles For the Turtle God!
Shells For the Shell Throne!
1) 3 units of harlequins would eat a horde list alive.
2) Harlequin shadowseers counter wraithsight.
3) falcons/fireprisms could be used as well, just always heard that 3 wraithlords was cheesy.
All those foot slogging harlies look like big ole sacks of VP to me. You have to come to me or your investment is worthless. Any mechanized army has the ability to sit outside your 18" threat range then roll up and obliterate you if you try to advance. Your heavy weapons are slooooow, so I'm happy to sit back hiding from them and wait until you're forced to risk your high price assault units into my threat range. At least some skimmer tanks could zip down and flush out the hiding transports, hope you get enough forced disembarks and entanglements that the harlies can close without eating massive rapid fire ultraviolence.
A game between this list and mine would look like a chess match. By no means would any kind of slaughter be achieved. (unless of course you try to just run up the middle in which case I get the slaughter =) )
