Default Help with Drop Pod list in a Tier 1 area

Hey, I'm looking to start back 40k after a long break, and I'm looking to do it with a marine pod list.
I'm thinking of running the following:
(from memory)
kandor
7 Honor guard-thunder hammer, pod
8 sternguard-fist, 4 combimelta, pod
8 sternguard-fist,4 combimelta, pod
10 tac marines, power weapon, plasma rifle and cannon, pod
10 tac marines, power weapon, plasma rifle and cannon, pod
10 tac marines, power weapon, plasma rifle and cannon, pod
should be 1750
I could also swap all drop pods for rhinos. I'm not sure which version would be more effective(mech or pod).

There are a lot of "tier 1" army builds in my area, and turnys are very competitive.
Some of the list I know I'll be playing are things like:
ork hoard- 200 orks in 1750
mech eldar
Nidzzila
ork nob biker army
chaos dual lash prince
nurgle demons
and others just as bad.
Can the marine pod list handle these lists? I don't want to spend all the money for the army and find out it's not competitive, or has an auto-loss against half the tier 1 lists out there now.
Thanks for any help you can give.

I don't think it would be a strong list. I'm skeptical of honor guard, as they lack invulnerable saves and are expensive. You don't have enough stuff to take on a mechanized army or a horde army, and drop podded troops have little after the fact mobility. I think it would be better if it was mechanized.
