So this list is different than the one I posted earlier. Rather than make a new post I decided to edit the old one. Using this list as a proxy it seems to work very well but the down side is it's mostly pidgeon holed into a single strategy. For anti-armor you have the Myphitic Blight Haulers and the Plagueburst Crawler with the Entropy Cannons. Depending on the army you want to have them in the back as artillery or near the front of your list. This makes them tempting targets to shoot. The Daemon Prince with Arch-Contaminator makes them a lot more reliable as artillery pieces. Not to mention he can outright punish deep striking units that aim to wreak havoc on the crawlers. The idea is to slowly advance around the field and use the pox walker/cultist combo to either A) Ram them down your opponent's throat ( B ) as a tarpit to slow them down or ( C ) to hold mid-range objectives.

The Meyphitic Blight Haulers work really well with the three teams of Plague Marines, providing them cover, and creating protection. The Plague Marines are designed to assist with the shooting utilizing the Blight Launchers/Plasma Gun and can assist in holding objectives as well. The two detachments add a +4 to CP and we have three Psykers to assist with smite spam. Which allows us to gain additional mortal wounds against targets. Enough buffs are also had to really bolster our forces to devastate enemy units. The downside is the list almost pigeon holes you into a single particular strategy but it's a very fluffy strategy based around the slow advance of the death guard forces.
