Default Which deploys last? "Word in Your Ear", "Grand Illusion", or "Macharian Cross"

The Callidus Assassin's "Word in Your Ear", the Necron Deceiver's "Grand Illusion", and an Imperial Guard Officer's "Macharian Cross" all allow the player to move units after both sides have deployed but before the first turn starts.

So if I have a Grey Knights army with Inducted Imperial Guard, and have both a Callidus Assassin and an IG officer with a Macharian Cross (which I do), and I am fighting a Necron army with a Deceiver, who goes last? second? first?

This fight will be happening New Year's Eve and I am wondering about this :-\

I think you would be able to move. See, you have 2 of the 3 abilities. Your "word in your ear" would cancel his "Grand illusion". Leaving your "macharian cross"

Odd situation. My guess is that you would roll off to see who moves first like you do with infiltrators.

I agree with Commander_Vimes.

Ok, dice roll off sounds like the best way and makes the most sense.

Thanks

Happens all the time and the proper ruling on it is a roll off, just like infiltrators... as was already said.
