Going for a semi competitive local tournament list.
I have another list where i switch out the drones for a spearhead with 3 plagueburst crawlers instead keeping the same chaos lord terminator as HQ. I really wanna run mortarion no matter what cause he looks amazing and I love his playstyle. Let me know what you guys think im very new to Death guard. Thanks.

Im assuming the lord is carring a combi-melta and not a multi-melta.

Conventional "wisdom" would be to have more cultist than poxwalker for the dead walk again tratagem, to replace all or at least most heavy blight launcher with flammers.
Have wings on the daemon princ with claw rather than axe and with the arch contaminator warlord trait to make the most out of your drones.

There is however nothing wrong with your list, other than swapping the warlord trait you should have at least a fighting chance. Primarch are cool but not top tier, your list look fun and I would rather stick to it and optimise it rather than go with the conventional list.

Whatever you take, do tell us how it went!

Yes lol its suppose to be a combi melta. I play a lot of SM. I didnt know if they were gonna faq the wings on a DP of nurgle because as of right now they are "Free" in the codex if your going by points. I see what your saying about the cultist my plan was to use them as a front line bubble wrap to create more poxwalkers. As you said I can get a lot more at a reduced price if I run more Cultists. I will make some adjustments around your advice and get another list up soon. Whats your take on the Combi melta? Is it worth it on a lord that can drop in outside of 9? Or should I use those points on more cultists/poxwalkers?

The list looks good, I would just swap spells around. Mortarions -1T pairs well with Curse of the Lepper (which targets the closest unit). I'm not sure who you are planning Typhus to target Blades with other then the Deathshroud, but if he's going to be near the Poxwalkers I would take the +1S/T & -1 to be hit with him. Maybe then give the DP Plague Wind or Blades depending on where you plan on utilizing him.
Plague Spitters on drones is a good idea, as they are assault weapons so you can advance and shoot. With the Blightbringer you have a better chance to be in range with them turn 1.

Thanks for the advice giving poxwalkers a -1 to hit will benefit me in the long walk up lol. Drones are meant to be a tough long range infantry killer with buffs from blades. Looking at it now Blades should be on DP with wings moving up with drones with mortarion giving support near by. Im gonna post another list in this thread in a few hours thanks for the help guys!

Lol whats funny about that Blacktriton is I made my list on Battlescribe and cross referenced with codex. I assumed battlescribe point values were wrong, but they were actually the updated point values from Chapter approved! Thanks for bringing that to my attention that really allows me to min/max my list in a better way.
