Two things:

Warlocks can't have guide. They can only have warlock psychic powers and Guide is a Farseer psychic power.
Also Only ulthwe craftworld can have a seer council. Do you mean that you have two hq choices - one a seer council and the other a Farseer with four warlocks (and wargear) If so you could relitavely easily change your army from vanilla to Ulthwe by swapping the spirit stone for another Farseer and have one of them with guide and the other with eldritch storm.

I'd also change the bright lance on the vyper for a starcannon/EMS/scatter laser. I don't like bright lances on vypers as they'll miss 50% of the time and because you haven't given it spirit stone or holo field it will die fairly easily - and that's 80 points down the drain.

I much prefer the revised version to the original. that brightlance looks much better on the wraithlord and I like those Dire Avengers with the wave serpent.

Just one thing I would suggest - the farseer has two psychic powers. he can only use one per turn so it might be worth dropping one and give the extra points to the Dire Avenger exarch to make him really nasty in cc.

A guided bright lance sounds very good:

You will hit the target 8/9 of the time!

This list is very similar to my 2000 point ulthwe list. (Just add another wraithlord, vyper and a proper seer council.)

I don't like what your doing with your HQ though. Your spending 124 points on one model that can't really do much in CC and can only use one phycic power each turn one of which requires him to get close to the enemy. The striking scorpians are great my list has those aswell. The fire dragons in the falcon should work pretty well. The two guardian squads (once again exactly the same as mine) fit in nicely. THe dire avengers should work well. However I would drop the star Engines on both your vyper and your falcon. (they can already move far enough anyway). And finally the wraithlord is good.
