I Want to Give Evil a Try (pSkarre 35 points)
When I started this game I thought I would never try Cryx. Back then I couldn't justify playing an outright evil army. Then I played a video game that made me realize: playing evil characters is quite cathartic and helps work out those negative feelings. So I've decided to get in touch with my inner megalomaniac. to that end I've decided to start a Cryx army. I've been told that pSkarre is a good place to start, so here's a list I made out of some of the Cryx staples.
min Bane Thralls
Necrosurgeon & Stitch Thralls
max Satyxis Raiders with UA
My theory here is that the Raiders will go 'jack hunting, and put some pain on the my opponent's warcaster. The McThralls are there for Sacrificial Strike and general tar pitting. The Banes are there because well they're Banes.
My question is: is this list a good start, or do i need to make some adjustments?
The list is playable as it is but could use some adjustments to optimize it.

With the last point i would get a Machine Wraith to sneak up and control / contest scenario points.
Maybe you could also drop the Mechanithralls to a min unit and use those two points for a Raider Captain for crazy threat ranges and solo hunting.
In my opinion, you'd be better off getting some Scrap Thralls for the last point, the McThralls don't offer corpse tokens and with Scrappies, you won't have to sack them.

For the rare case a game goes on past turn 6 he needs to think of something.
Scrappies work too but i just love that Machine Wraith and always try to get one. He has won me more games by scenario than any other model i own.
