It seems that while High Elves can stand and fight, that's not their strong suit. So this list is designed to bring the fight to the enemy quickly and hit hard. I have considered dropping the spearmen and taking a second unit of archers along with a second great eagle, but not sure that's a wise idea. Thanks in advance for any and all comments or suggestions.

Well, it may be simply stylistic, but I'd think a list that "takes the fight to the enemy and hit hard" would be using a Prince and the Star Dragon - I'd very much prefer that to the Dragon Mage. Perhaps scratch the Dragon Mage, roll those 430pts into the Prince and make him useful - The mage on steed is good, and should still keep the 2 scrolls for the turn or two you're not in combat.

My only other thought would be musicians for your units, because they are low in cost and always useful.

Interesting Prince build I've been quite successful with (it's indulgent, but destructive and protective).

Prince, Star Dragon, Star Lance, Armor of Caledor, Guardian Phoenix.
2+ armor save, 5+ ward save, Dragon has a 3+ scaly skin, both rider and
Dragon are immune to flaming attacks. Lots of st7 attacks on the charge.

Thanks for the advice. I'll look into the double dragon option.
