eStryker takes ALL the knights! (50)
This is a list that I've been playing around with for a while for use in Steamroller...
Also, I like knights.
Lord Commander Coleman Stryker +6
-Stormclad (bonded) -10
Max Sword Knights -6
Max Precursor Knights -8
Stormblade Infantry -5
-Stormblade Officer and Standard -3
Black 13th Gun Mage Strike Force -4
Rupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord -2
Archduke Alain Runewood -3
Journeyman Warcaster -3
That leaves me with 1 point, which I will either spend on Reinholdt or a Stormcaller, depending on character restrictions.
Originally I called this my "Strykursor Knights" list, mainly because almost all my support resources went into keeping the Precursors alive. Arm 20 vs. shooting, Fearless+Tough and Reveille makes them kind of awesome. I also get a little wet whenever a Warjack's card has the word "Accumulator" on it, so I have two.
Initially the list had a Lancer in it, but I found that, while useful, the Arc Node wasn't really that necessary. I figured that, with two reach Warjacks and Positive Charge, I could get a lot of mileage out of a bunch of dudes with Defensive Line (for Arm 18 vs shooting) and Flank.
I haven't played with this version of the list yet, but I look forward to using it in the future! Thoughts?
Destroyer of Worlds
My main thoughts revolve around dropping the Stormblades entirely for another max unit of Sword Knights and then using the extra 2 points to give the Precursors the UA that they so desperately need.
Other than that, it looks fine. Sword Knights are my favourite infantry with eStryker. With a 15.5" Threat range during feat turn, Flank, decent Defensive stats and Reform there's little they can't do for your army. I'd also probably drop the Stormclad for Rowdy, and use the final 2 points in your army for someone like Arlan Strangeways for even more added focus/support. If you like Accumulator, why not stack it on Gallant with Power Booster, for 2 free focus. Rowdy basically has 1-2 free focus anyway due to the Bond's additional die to hit and his free runs/charge.
Alternatively if you want to keep the blades, just drop the UA. Then you can get the UA for the Precursors (a requirement in my opinion) and you'll have 2 points for whatever else (Gorman or Lanyssa Rysyll would be good options). You would also have the option of the sword knight UA (which could drive/marshal the stormclad) which would still get basically 2 focus due to the accumulator/marshal bonus.
Personally I'd drop Galant in favour of Ol'Rowdy but that's just personal preference.

It looks more like a Constance list but should be decent w estryker. If you take pk and UA, be aware that morrow's name will not stack with the lord commander's feat.
Positive charge is good with those jacks. Min sword knights could be increased as well, they have good synergy with estryker and runewood.
