As a high elf player I have some feedback on the high elf list

The large blocks of SMs and WLs should be toned down. They are quite expensive, and you could afford at least one unit of flanking silver helms if you droped say 6 models from each unit. Now you have the two main blocks of spearmen, and those two elite units as support. You also have an additional flanking unit to threaten other enemy units, and it can also dish out some pain.

A quick note on the WE:

That highborn is going ot have trouble come 7th when he can be picked out by shooting! a 5+ armor save and no ward save means your going to have to be VERY careful using it.

Also, HoDA on a mage isn't that great of an idea - they have BS 4, and will likely be at long range when firing.

Your composition could be a bit better too - a treeman will work better with eternal guard than treekin, and the eternal guard aren't that appealing without a noble or highborn in them. Maybe trade the branch wraith for a BSB, or drop the eternal guard and go for a more non-engagement force?
