Good thread, actually !!!
To be honest, I feel like the Troop slot has been blown WIDE open.
I've been making lists with Tactical marines for the first time in ages since the news (with 18point factored in).
I think a marine squad in a Rhino, Pod or Terrrax is going to be such a great, solid choice when you factor their special weapon options.
Intercessors are amazing still, but with their limited movement ability, in 2k game boardss, its tough to get the most out of them unless youre running smaller squads and Impulsors, which get pricey quickly.
230 Points nets you a Multimelta, a Melta, a Combi Melta and a Fist with 10 guys- thats solid. "Tactical" -i feel. For 210 you have intercessors and a fist. I believe a lot will come down to what the rest of your army looks like.
Las-caddy tacs are likely to make it back into lists at 105 points and 10 wounds for 5 guys.

There is no harm in, on occasion, having disagreements. It's another thing entirely, however, to be a tool in conveying that disagreement.
