    A friend of mine is coming into town on Saturday with 1500 points of Stormcast and I'm trying to prepare to play him. Last time we played he utterly destroyed me and I'm hoping with the new General's Handbook I might have a better chance at matching him even if I don't win. I have a few lists I'm considering using and could use feedback on which is the best choice as well as what artifacts and traits to use. My opponent has everything from the original AoS starter set, the Stormcast start collecting, a Lord Aquilor, and I believe some of the vanguard raptors or something similar.

    List 1:

    Fangs of Sotek
    Sunclaw Starhost

    Slann Starmaster
    -General
    -Vast Intellect
    -Incandescent Retrices
    Oldblood on Carnosaur
    -Blade of Realities
    Saurus Sunblood
    Skink Starpriest

    40 Saurus Warriors
    10 Saurus Warriors x2



    List 2:

    Dracothian's Tail
    Firelance Starhost

    Slann Starmaster
    -Incandescent Retrices
    Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur
    -General
    -Thickly Scaled Hide
    -Blade of Realities
    Scar-Veteran on Cold-One
    Skink Starpriest

    5 Saurus Knights x3
    40 Saurus Warriors



    List 3:

    Dracothian's Tail
    Firelance Starhost

    Slann Starmaster
    -Incandescent Retrices
    Oldblood on Carnosaur
    -General
    -Thickly Scaled Hide
    -Coronal Shield
    Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur

    5 Saurus Knights x3

    Stegadon w/ Giant Bow

    Interesting!

    I also have a 1500 pt match against stormcast coming up and I've also previously been destroyed. I have been considering a more Kroak-centered list:

    Allegiance: Seraphon

    Leaders
    Lord Kroak (450)
    - General
    Saurus Astrolith Bearer (160)
    Skink Priest (80)
    - Priestly Trappings
    Engine of the Gods (220)
    - Artefact: Incandescent Rectrices

    Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    40 x Skinks (200)
    - Meteoric Javelins & Star Bucklers

    Units
    2 x Salamanders (80)

    Scenery
    Balewind Vortex (100)

    Total: 1490/2000

    The biggest obstacle for me when facing SE is the Lord Celestant on Dracoth with the 2+ save (re-rollable 1). Therefore we need either heavy rend or mortal wounds to get through. In that regard all your listes aim at one of the two (rend or mortal wounds). I can see, however, that list 2 uses 40 warriors without the battalion (and therefore no rend). I wonder if something else might be better suited for those points?
