Hey guys, I'm making a balanced army composition but I need your help. I think I don't have enough anvil for staying power. And what do you think about my compostion now? I used all models I have but i'm willing to buy more at the time. I just need to find out what I should change about this composition to make it better, and what to buy first to make it even more better.
Thank you in advance and Merry Christmas! :)

General
Dreadlord mounted on pegasus

BSB
Master in anvil unit 2

Magic
Supreme Sorceres lvl 4

Anvil unit:
30 corsairs with double handweapons

Anvil unit 2:
no models yet

Hammer 1:
cold one chariot

Hammer 2:
5 cold one knights

Hammer 3:
Kharybdiss

Shooty:
15 darkshards
15 darkshards
1 reaper bolt thrower

Harrasement and tactical
8 shades

Fast
8 darkriders

These are the units I probably want to put in the current army: Black guard, Executioners, 5 cold one knights, 1 reaper bolt thrower.

Black Guard are expensive, but IMO they're the best anvil unit we have. Win or lose, they WILL hold a combat unit for at least one round, unless your opponent kills the whole unit outright, which is not easy to do. I can't tell you how many times an opponent of mine has charged, or been charged, by a unit of black guard, only to win combat by 4 or 5, I laugh and say "unbreakable", and then the next turn they get flank charged by a horde of witch elves with a cauldron and hag (or two). That very trick won me a tourney a few weeks ago.

Nice tactic! I think I gonna try that together with a unit of executioners instead of with elves. So the Black Guard would be a good first addition to my current army right?

180 points for Kouran is a bit much at certain point levels to make them unbreakable however, he isn't really viable until 2.4/2.5k.

Did I use the wrong term? I don't take Kouran, so it's whatever normal Black Guard are.
