I like the idea of taking both the tomb blade spam and destroyer spam, keep these lists coming i like where this is going.
10 wounds, 10 saves, 10 1's, One epic misfire.

Alas, like the last 2 Destroyer-heavy lists it was obviously over in turn 3, tabling my opponent leaves me feeling "guilty" for writing such an abusive list. 

On the upside -
For hard-core tournaments I would:

-1 Destroyer from each squad
-1 Heavy Destroyer
-1 Tomb Blade from each squad

Split the 10 man Immortals into 2 individual 5 man Immortal squads

+2 Nightscythes for the Immortals.

This will keep the overbearing firepower intact including Ignores Cover, add much needed anti-air while giving you options for objective jumping with the Immortals.

Thoughts??

In my meta, the only Necron tournament build I've seen has 18 Wraiths. Either a CAD with those and some support units like Destroyer Lord, CCB and troops or just Decurion with 3 Canoptek Harvest. And reading your list I wonder - how would it do vs. things like:
- full Wraithwing
- Demon Screamerstar
- Space Wolves Star
- teleporting Centurions with grav guns
Ever got chance to fight any of those? I doubt you can table them by round 3.

I have played against all of those armies (long-time tournament player). 

The majority of the list is T5 and has strength 5 and 6 weapons and half of the shots ignore cover, the other half are AP3.  Look even closer and its really MSU for all units who can avoid CC or pour fire into someone who gets to close and then jet pack away.  Even feeding a speedbump unit to CC keeps the forepower pouring in.  The Destroyers all have 2 wounds to add resilience to the list and rerolling 1's to hit and rerolling all wounds and Armor Pen Rolls.

I have been playing a few games with a variation of this list at 1500 points.
No decurion just a CAD and the destroyer cult formation.
CAD:
Orikan the Diviner-120
10x warriors-130
10x warriors-130
Triarch Stalker-125
Triacrh Stalker-125
15x Flayed Ones-195

Destroyer Cult:
Destroyer Lord,warscythe,nightmare shroud,phase shifter-190
4x Destroyers-160
4x Destroyers-160
4x Destroyers-160

In the list the Destroyer lord and orikan join the flayed ones and march down the middle as a distraction. the lord tanks all the hits that aren't ap2 and rerolls the ones making the unit tough to kill off and reasonably cheap for a deathstar.
They are pure murder...just take my word for it. if you haven't tried flayed ones with a destroyer lord yet,do it! especially if you roll zealot on your warlord traits.
The triarchs just stand near the warriors and destroyers giving them a huge buff. they are also great as a tarpit and charge into the assault to protect them from being charged.
Out of the 4 games i have played against different armies and opponents i have tabled each one.

Yes, I recently played against our local meta tournament winner with his AM with allied Imperial Knight. We stopped at turn 4,as there was not much in the way of his army left on the table.

I have been finding similar results with tabling my opponent by turn 30-4640k. I was just worried the list would struggle against armor. But if you found playing astray militarism was no different it should yield similar results for me.

Play objective games and win by playing the mission. If need be force feed the offending unit a blob unit to bog it down.

I've been away from the forum for a while...

Against invisible Death Star lists and 2+ Rerollable lists I do the same thing - use the 36" move of the Tomb Blades and the 6" +2d6" jump move of the the Destroyers to avoid playing their game. The hardest hitting models in the list can reposition and ignore them.

I just played 2 days of the Narrative Events at the Las Vegas Open with 15 Destroyers and 11 Tomb Blades in my list. I didn't lose any Destroyers and only 2 Tomb Blades all weekend. The Tomb Blades ate Deep Striking Terminators for breakfast with so many strength 6 small blasts.

Do you prefer Tomb blades support for your destroyers,over more destroyers?

Destroyers can be fun. Tomb Blades are now a permanent integral part of every list. No less than 3 units of 4 with Particle Beamers and Nebuloscopes
