I rather like the Unknown Legionnaire's take on the list, honestly. A damocles is an interesting option (and one I'm only experimenting with now). Naturally, with any kind of heresy list there's gonna be some hard counters and some legions that can throw you for a loop but that's the nature of it. I think it's got a lot of potential and the old one had a lot of character.
Gorgoff, Iiii dunno dude, I didn't play a lot of AoS but a ton of 6E and 7E, and two eagles with full on extra hand weapon tac squads with apothecaries was my blood angel mode d jeur. Making sure to still have something big and bad on the table T1 was important, and for the most part if you can cut down their AA those Eagles get to be more of a nuisance than most can handle. -shrugs- worked for me, I still love em, hence owning 5 between 2 armies and only 2 raptors.
Post Scriptum: Aaaay, SyNidius, no worries on me, I'm just saying that somehow switching to take out the Night Raptors and splitting the tacs to add Rhinos, with some Raptor wouldn't make it into a god tier tournament slayer list. (I do think melta bombs on that many sources is a good way to get some anti armour area coverage) and Power axes are... interesting, and the conventional method for dealing with artificer sergeants and termies so it's not terrible. Try a game, proxy what you need once or twice and see if you can pull off the playstyle you're going for. Practice and an affinity can lead to a rather intimate knowledge of what to expect and how to get the most out of units that other people might dismiss that you can make work.
For the record, I can't use Drop Pods: they have a real tendency to max-scatter with my dice and end up with stranded strike forces that get picked off way too quick. The math says it shouldn't happen, the experience for me is that nothing but disaster can happen. Same source that says, "Feed me fire raptors, my Xiphons and Eagles hunger."
