Avenger has definitely done work for my (had a game with the infernal household rules last week). I run my chaos knights with daemons and always take at least one (most of the time two) Nurgle Heralds, this gives me access to shrivelling pox (-1 to targets toughness 6 casting value). When you combo this with Daemonic power you are suddenly wounding T8 models on 4s with the avenger which is pretty brutal.
That being said avengers are now 10pts more expensive.
10 points isn't so bad, I think especially when stacked up against the RFBC's cost, it did need an increase.
On the other hand, the new laser weapon probably wouldn't get taken (by choice) even if it were free...
