@Dravoth and Remtek. You make well valid points (though I will say @Remtek it needs to be noted that -any- unit in your army get objective secure when Battle-forged, so there's no need for me to swap out the an Assault squad in a Land Raider with a Terminator Assault squad to capture objectives) , but let me add some things to remark to all of this.
For one: Feel no pain is not as strong as it was- 5+ (you're paying for a priest which points intend it to give a 4+ invule.), they're pricy, 50 pts each. But could be viable for a full tact squad army, I haven't seen it before.
Second, and more important to remark: everything in this list follows and works together toward one ideal and large goal; Assault. I don't need to hold every objective (but frankly, a drop pod, a Stormraven, and 20 Jump marines can make that easy), I plan to easily close to gap quickly.
It's a Assault Armor Core Blood Angels army at it's finest (least I believe so, all this list stuff is really opinion based).
Dev squads could be nice, Tact squads have good uses- but everything in the army is made to head towards the enemy and be involved with an Assault mentality in the most formidable way as possible, so it is Assault marines and the Predators are so ideal.
Can other armies do it better? Or is there a better Blood Angels list out there? I imagine, but this is pretty fing solid- I've put months into it, and I'm happy I've found a nice balance for all comers.
Third, and last to note, Terminator Assault Squads: I view them like most any models- it serves a purpose. If I assault when a Devastator squad, and play shooting with an Assault squad- I might find poor results.. My 20 Assault marines and nearly 10 Death company cover most common Assault, but if they even look at a Monstrous creature they'll explode on the spot.
And someone's gotta fight that Chaos Lord. They're not meant to be out in the open, they're not meant to shoot- they're the highest pinnacle of Assault with the worst of the worst.
Much past that-- list making I say take advice, but take with a whee bit of a grain of salt- since all models are viewed with varied opinions- let alone army lists. In the end I'll have to see how this runs.
I'll keep this post updated with battle reports when I start.

They approached towards the planet upon wings of fire that engulfed the sky in this free fall -
armor shaking and trembling as they seem to only hasten further their Descent from the heavens face first -
It was mere seconds now; the end of this leap was inevitable to them -
This jump would easily end with but a splatter of their corpses to the mettle streets -
Within an instant, they shift their bodies and thrust themselves upward -
Their descent swiftly haltered, hitting the ground with what sounded like thunder on the metal cobbled streets, echoing through the city-scape -
The Angels of Death had arrived. And their message was clear.
