    Ofc ill help :)

    HQ:
    Slann BSB Lore of Life, Quango Egg, Dispell Scroll, Skaven Skin Banner, Harmonic convergence, and becalming cogitation. Reasonably solid, but why not take the Channeling Staff if you are taking Harmonic Convergence? The egg is kinda nice, but can whiff. 3 5+ channels are really nice. The Skaven Banner should ofcourse be pretty strong if you know you are facing rats. You have a lot of Sauri, like a shitton of them, and most of the time Beasts is better with a lot of Sauri because Wyssans is so good on them. Life is for when you have a lot of monsters. You have 2, which is a few at least, but you seem to be benefiting more from Beasts.

    CORE:
    2x 24 Saurus Warriors, full command. No skinks are the big misser here. Skinks are really really really good against Doomwheels and Hellpits, you kinda need them to kill their monsters. You seem to want to grind your opponent out, which i dont know if you will be able to do. Being able to steal the enemies deployment fase due to first putting down only skinks is really strong, with this list it will be very quickly be visible what you will do.

    SPECIAL:
    30 Temple Guard, full command, Wailing Banner. Never liked the Wailing Banner. Go for Razor Standard if you want an expensive good banner that does damage, or just take the +1 movement banner if you want to go fast.

    Bastiladon with Solar thing. Good. Makes the channeling combo even more important due to the fact you will want a lot of PD.

    RARE:
    Ancient Stegadon, both upgrades. I normally never take the +1 attack upgrade, just not worth the points imho. The Ancient with the Horns really wants you to charge multi wound models, which is reasonable.

    Where are your Salamanders? Marching and shooting is pretty good, and Rats hate being burned. The expensive units will take a lot of damage from even one good shot of these guys while the cheaper units will really dislike the fearcheck from this guy. He is normally good, but against Elves and Rats i think they are must take. I always take 2, to make sure you get at least one good shot. Take another skink with them as well, always, to mitigate missfire damage.

    Hope you can do something with this! You could either go full grind, just go all on the Sauri and go Wyssans, just mow down the field or play the manouvering game with maybe Life or High with more Skinks. In either tactics you will want the Sallies, they are just to point efficient to not take.

    Hope you have fun with the list!

    Thank for all the feedback!

    I acctually didn't see this list in time for the battle, but I ended loosing only two models!
    My friend had a large cluster of 50 stormvermin with a Warlord on rat oger, a BSB and a warplock engineer. He missed all of his attacks, appart from 1 which killed one Temple Guard. I then flattened his unit with a result of 12 on the quango egg, and 38 kills in total. The unit fled and I caught up with it, then leading to 2 clanrat units to flee. He gave up after that, and I only lost one Saurus on the left flank.

    That sounds very solid, with what list did you end up playing? Missing all your attacks seems like really terrible luck, something like rolling 29 rolls below a 4 if he hit on 4+? Nice that the result was good though.
