Your archmage is close to what I run for mine, I just switch out the Loremasters cloak for the Talisman of Saphery so my archmage is basically unkillable. I love your first noble, love the build to pieces. Not much to say about your second mage, but would seerstaff and a dispel scroll work better for him? I've never cared for the Star lance simply because a) it requires the charge and b) it would have a -4 save mod so the ignore armour is somewhat overkill but you pay for it. Perhaps you could switch it out for the Helm of Fortune and a regular lance.

I always see so many high elf armies with archers in core, maybe i'm missing something but personally I find them as effective and a threatning as a wiffle bat. I'm getting much more success out of 21 strong spearmen unites deployed 7x3. but hey if archers work for you keep it up.

If it where me I would drop the champion from the dragon princes as well as one model so that they would be 6 wide with the BSB. the phoenix guard units quite good as are the two chariots and the reaver knights

All in all I would try to get two big units of spears for your battle line and shave some points here and there, but overall its good.

Cheers

It can hold. That being said I agree with Phae about the star lance and the archers, you may consider dropping the fast cav for a second eagle as well giving you a few extra points to go after more spearmen.

I like the army, it's very balanced and should do well against most lists.

using the noble on a great Eagle is a great way to hunt wizards and War machines.. plus good flanker
