Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm half-considering joining the pointy eared side. I'm a chaos player, but I'm starting to find chaos tactics a little limited and easy, and I like the complementary, synergic look of an eldar army, and the fluff is pretty awesome too.
However, I don't really want to play an existing craftworld. I don't really like any of their colour schemes (except Saim Hann, but I don't like the emphasis on fast attack) and, as a bit of a purist, I wouldn't feel right fielding a craftworld army list with the wrong colour scheme.
So, can you make a decent army with the basic eldar codex list?

Yeah, probably. I, personally, don't play Eldar, but my little brother does.
I would say just have them be a task force of some kind for fluff, and then go for a certain type of tactic. Eldar armies are pretty versatile, but with their short-range assault weapons, I would say that CC is more their specialty. Or just a byproduct of their shooting.
I reckon so. I feel that vanilla eldar is stronger than many of the craftworlds. You can tailor your force toward shooting, CC or to be balanced. Many people bash the troops for not being effective but with conceal they can make a very strong base to build an army from.
They can, but they have a rather flimsy feeling. The Guardians are weak, you get no distruption for Rangers, Aspect warriors are Elite and jetbikes still suck.
But of course it can be made a good army, it just ain't specialized in any way.
