Default Eldar Allies Idea

So as i'm sure everyone knows the Eldar got an Upgrade, Now we must rethink the posibilities as an ally. Farseers have an obvious appeal, many of the their troops recieved the abiltiy to run and shoot, and their tanks now can get holo fields, (they be dis pods). and theirs the Wraith knight? so what do people think?

I like the idea, but there are a few flaws.
Firstly, Farseers got nerfed.
Secondly, other than that there is nothing that they can do that Tau cannot, in a similar way. It might be an idea, however essentially i think that Tau are superior, with the exception that they have a wraithknight which is crazy, and better troops in Bikers, which are great at capping objectives

Maybe some wraith units to provide backup for the generally tough as wet paper tau?

Wraithlords/knights are heavy support and no, but if you take a spiritseer HQ, wraithguard/blades become troops instead of elites

If we're taking wraith back up, why not take a unit of wraithguard troops joined to Shadowsun? Infiltrate/outflank, along with stealth and shrouded... on a wraith body with those yummy instant death guns.

Wraith cannons have the distort rule which causes instant death.

Yeah but only on a 6. 90% of the time, it's S10 AP2

But 17% of the time it causes instant death, and S10 AP2 will be causing a fair amount of instant death to multi-wound targets in it's own right.
