I haven't used the War Altar before, but I think the extra bound spell will make a huge difference to the magic phase, especially in close quarters.
Mortar is there purely because I haven't used one in 18 months or so and I miss putting the pie plate down over units :)

Your char selection is very similar to mine although i often swap pegasus for BSB depending on my mood. I find the best use of the war alter is to sit on the flank of your main battle line acting as a unbreakable T5 W5 moster who is chucking out alot of bound spells a turn for a mere 250odd points. Meanwhile the knights and pistoliers team up on the same flank and try roll up the line.
I use a larger unit of flagellant which normally anchor the opposite flank using terrain, with the aid of some archers. The biggest worry though is i use 2 dispels over the rod of power. its all personal preference though.

I'd like to run a block of 15 flagellants and 2 of 6, but I just don't have the models ready yet.
