In order to foster some activity, im posting an idea for a 50 point pair for a casual event. Thoughts?
Morv1: I want to see how the Dhunian archon goes in devhost. At first i felt like it could make the ravagers really resilient in combination with restoration, but I tend to lose key models like B&C and LOTF more than id like. Hopefully the archon will keep them together.
Dhunian Archon is a mighty sweet piece of tech. I regularly play a Wilder in my Wild Hunt lists just for the fury control, and the DA has the exact same Shepherd's Call and a whole lot more for only two more points. That said, you can't take it as a freebie, and you want to be real careful about how much you spend on dedicated support in a 50-point list. So I look at the cauldron, the shaman, the DA, and the Gallows Grove in that list, and it looks to me like you have 17 points worth of pure support, two effective lights, and no heavies. Brighid and Caul are good, but I'm not sure they're _that_ good...
Which is not to say the DA can't be good in a 50-point list, but I think at that point level you need to pick one, or maybe two cheap pieces that aren't directly doing work, and then pile in some actual meat for them to support.
Ok! Great feedback. How about the below? If the list is about trying the dhunian archon out then the death wolves might be a good addition. The shaman needs to stay, and i think the croc pot would make the death wolf investment very much worth it. Ghetorix would appreciate the archon's healing
[Morvahna 1] Morvahna the Autumnblade [+28] - Brennos the Elderhorn  - Ghetorix  Dhunian Archon  Tharn Ravager Shaman  Tharn Wolf Rider Champion [0(7)] Tharn Wolf Rider Champion [0(7)] Boil Master & Spirit Cauldron  Death Wolves  Tharn Ravagers (max)  - Tharn Ravager Chieftain 
Circle [Theme] The Devourer's Host
[Kaya 3] Kaya the Wildheart [+27] - Gorax Rager  - Scarsfell Griffon  - Warpwolf Stalker  Tharn Wolf Rider Champion [0(7)] Tharn Wolf Rider Champion [0(7)] Wrong Eye  Tharn Wolf Riders (max)  Well of Orboros 
Kaya3: Played against maddox. The feat turn was amazing. I missplaced wrong eye which lost one wolf but it was a fairly futile to try hitting anything. Opponent should have just stayed back and saved the clock. Wrong eye and the wolf riders is a good combo.
Post feat turn there were issues as the list lacked substance at this point. But i think it is worth some more reps.
Morv1: Played against goreshade3 banes. I had great general board control and attrition i was leading in. Unfortunately it was the list with two rectangle zones on the side and he managed to score one relentlessly. Played against hunters grim. Opponent got dishearted with the match and forfeited early on. The death wolves behind a wall and in a forest tanked half a list's worth of shooting
Death wolves are ridiculous! They are my new favourite unit. Loaded up on corpses they just tanked a bunch of stuff. Their def 14 meant that in cover or concealment they were a huge impediment to my opponent. The Dhunian Archon added a single protection that was useful. The intention was for Brennos to be right behind them spamming some d3 heals but he was always busy somewhere else.
