Out of all of them against each other as well, the treemonic legion, because it can be consistently competitive against most other army builds. That and as fun as magic heavy armys are they get a little repetitive after a while. just my 2 cents.

Agreed, the forest spirit heavy army is certainly the most rounded competitive build, and would fare much better on a tournament scene than any of the other wood elf options. Incidenently, i run a WE Wild hunt army with Orion, 12 wild riders, 16 glade riders, and a few other elements, against the right armies its very powerful, but its too much of a 1 (ok, 28) trick pony, so against certain armies it can really struggle, particularly Khorne armies, they get too many attacks, and perform even better the more models they have in combat, regardless of the fact your in their flank and or rear. Sure, you can make them chase you all day, but to get a decisive win (and a fun game) you need to win a few combats, and against Khorne thats very difficult.

As for High elves, its hard to say how competitive they will be, certainly, on the right board the 2 dragon army could be lethal, on the other hand, against a gunline on a relatively open table they wont make it past turn 2. it will be a while before people figure out all the 'best' ways of using the HE, just like it always is with a new army.
