I like list 2 much more
For your Cold Ones i'd only give them a Champion (need that +1A) and use the points elsewhere, like giving the AP Banner to your Corsairs
Instead of Manbane, I'd give Touch of Death to 1 Assassin

Reason i buffed the corsairs is up since malus is with them and he is my only hero not to mention they will draw lots of attention.

There's a lot of things that IMO won't work once the list is on the table. I don't like corsairs for their points and i feel manbane is overrated. I also thing is kind of suicidal to play an elven army with no scrolls even with something as cool as the ring of hotek. There is also a surprising lack of both harpies and dark riders in boths lists IMO the best units in the book after the hydra.

On a final note 20 BG is a bit to much, best size for them is 18 in a 6x3 formation; banner of hag graef and champion with crimson death or soulrender.

really? i like the 5 man ranks, i play against lots of horde armys so i would rather keep it 5x4 so i can avoid getting them into to many combats at once.

I agree 100% especially with the BG your tactics are very similar to mine:)

If you spread your BG 6 wide 2 attacks each except the champ 3 attacks st 4 hatred 13 re-rollable attacks. You need 3's to hit most things and 3's to damage (again most things) thats HUGE! and not to mention they are stubborn/immune the psychology so even if somthing charges you and wins, you aint going no where.
