Default Necrons vs marines

I need a necron force specifically tooled to smash apart my freind's Marines. my usual army list doesn't work, how can i change it:

[hr]
[hr]

HQ:
1x nightbringer
tends to smash up an expensive unit, then get blown to smithereens by a ton of fire

[hr]

Elites:
1x 4 Pariahs
heads for a nearby target, slices it up, then just expires

1x 10 immortals
can usually take out 1.5 - 3 marine squads

[hr]

Troops:
2x 10 warriors

[hr]

Fast Attack:
1x 4 destroyers
don't seem to help, just fly around killing the odd marine

1x 3 destroyers
same as above

If it helps, he tends to play as many tactical marines as possible, and swarms me.

One question: How many points do you two usually play?

There are so many areas where I'd say you need improvement, nonetheless, I'll do my best to help.

Righto, 1500 points it is, lets see..

HQ

Necron Lord - 150
- Warscythe
- Resurrection Orb

Just the basic Lord with Warscythe and Resurrection Orb, a good standard combination IMO, he's now good in CC and he can resurrect fallen Warriors. I'd keep him with the Warriors.

Necron Lord - 210
- Warscythe
- Veil Of Darkness
- Resurrection Orb

I gave this Lord another Warscythe, but this time with Veil Of Darkness, this can prove useful if you have a unit of Flayed Ones or Wraiths nearby or even a Warrior Squad. Use him to get behind the enemy with either of those squads, (only one mind you) and unleash hell at his backside! :P Also with the Resurrection Orb you could resurrect the fallen necron unit and just keep on hammering at him.

Elites

8 Flayed Ones - 144

I chose these guys because you could Deep Strike these guys against those annoying units and let slaughter begin! Or take them with the VoD Lord.

Troops

12 Warriors - 216

12 Warriors - 216

Just the basic troops, try to keep them near the Res Orb Lord with the Warscythe.

Fast Attack

3 Wraiths - 123

3 Wraiths - 123

I need not say more :P.

Heavy Support

3 Tomb Spyders - 165

I chose these guys because of their high strength and high toughness, they'll be annoying when independent of each other.

Total: 1,491

I gave this some thought and I hope it inspires you to either take this list, or use it as an idea to make your own.

I hope this helps somewhat.

Isn't veil of time for librarians? Or did you mean veil of darkness?

There is no veil of time in the necron armoury, unless there is something new.
If not I think you mean veil of darkness

Yes I meant Veil Of Darkness and not Veil Of Time, I just got a bit confused there, but it's sorted out now.

Edited again.
