Ehn, doesn't seem that competitive. You've got lots of bodies, and decent speed, but you'll quickly find yourself struggling in the anti tank capacity. The fleet rule makes those assault squads particularly deadly, which is nice though.

Nothing really really wrong with it, just seems very plain to my eyes. Perhaps swap the captain out for a jump chaplain?

One thing I always thought would be fun with shrike was taking lots of combat scouts. Infiltrate + scout + fleet = guaranteed first turn charge. Deploy more than 18" away, scout 6" forward. Move 6", fleet at least 1" assault 6" = 19-24" guaranteed! Couple that with shrike and one unit of whatever you want infiltrating forward and you can do a very serious turn 1 hammer blow.

Actually Infiltrating sternguard could be all sorts of good times!

That what I'm thinking of doing actually.

The list I'm thinking of without the book in fron of me is.

HQ-
Shrike
Jump Chaplian

Troops-
5-6 squads of Scouts, ten men, sarge with power-fist.

fast attack-
Squad of 10 men assualt marines with thunder hammer.

Squad of Vanguard vets with thunder hammer or power fist, and a couple of power weapons.

Shrike goes with the assualt squad and the chaplain goes with the vets. THe point of this was as to not kill the enemy the turn I assualt but, to witlel them down to a couple of models and finish them off during my opponents turn.
