Who thinks that a carnifex army is still very competitive in 5th edition? I'm thinking 2 hive tyrants, 6 carnifex and some genestealers as troop choices. They used to be a very nasty army but has this changed?

eehh, from what I've seen I'd say no.
Less you have an extremely dense line of cover to close the gap, otherwise against a competent opponent I'd see it being over by 2nd round shooting.
Your only real issue with fielding a MC list is the lack of troops. You still retain the survivability and hitting power of the MC list, but holding objectives can become harder. It becomes a game of "protect the stealers" pretty fast in objective based games.
I still think nidzilla lists are viable. I run 6 MCs at 1500 pts.
2x dakka tyrants
2x elite CC fexes
(I realize that the elite dakka fex is by the numbers more powerful, but I just like the CC fex).
Those 6 MCs weight in at around 950 pts. That leaves 500+ pts for troops. That's a 100 spinegaunts.
You just have to be smart with cover.

I agree with magnet_man, I still run an 'Nidzilla list in 5th edition, and I still dominate.
The only thing is you have to be very conservative in order to get all of the troops that you need.
Barebones Genestealers and Spinegaunts will be your friend, and Dakkafexes are just about the most firepower for least points you can get.
Also, consider using Zoanthropes for one of your HS choices, just because with more troops you need more Synapse.
