The lesser of two evils is still evil (Pick my list)

I am stuck between three army lists for Sunday. This time, the usual 1500 pt tournament is now 1750 points of pure anihilation games. Both lists I can run are fun , but I have no idea which one to take.



List 1-angry earth

HQ

Overlord: warscythe, mind shackle scarabs, semp weave, phase shifter
in Command barge

Orikan the diviner

3 harbingers of transmogrification:

Elite

Ctan shard: writhing world scape, Gaze of death

Troops

7 warriors: ghost ark

7 warriors: ghost ark

7 warriors: ghost ark

heavy support

doomsday ark

The list is tedious, but its a fun list. I personally love this list. I haven't run it in a while, but its going to be a blast really. Tons of kill points, but it seems like it could be fun. The other list
List 2-The Storm

HQ

Storm lord

 Overlord, res orb, semp weave , mind shackle scarabs, war scythe 

Court
lords war scythe, mind shackle scarabs, res orb (goes in warrior squad 1)
lords war scythe, mind shackle scarabs, res orb  (goes in warrior squad 2)
Harbinger of despair-viel of tears (goes in death marks)
Harbinger of eternity- chronometron (goes in lychguard+stormlord)
Harbinger of eternity- chronometron (goes in lychguard+stormlord)

Elite
 8 Lychguard dispersion shields and power swords 

10 deathmarks

Troops

 19 warrior 

19 warrior 

This list is also fun. I have played a version of it as footcrons and it did well. I really want to see how it does against certain armies. Also, the Kill points are hard to get. Death marks can jump all over the board, warriors are massive blobs that will gun anything to a halt and the lychguard blob with 2 characters is nasty and survivable. The best part about this is that the entire army can't be complained about not being WYSIWYG since everything is exactly WYSIWYG down to every detail. No guns missing from the sides of my arks (even though they shoot straight to the side) and it has no mech element. This allows me to have the most durable unit in all of warhammer. Imagine trying to kill a T5 model that has a 4+ rerollable inv save and has a 4+ roll to come back thats also rerollable. pretty much a 4+4+ then another 4+4+. The unit is a juggernaught. Combine that will all power weapons and the mind shackle scarabs to try and deal with characters and single model units and you have a unit that just wrecks people. all I had to do to get the second chronometron guy was drop 2 warriors (I had spare points left over)

List three gets no awesome name or picture. Its my usual list tweeked.
