I'd spend some of the remaining points on giving your prince some protection, he's a sitting duck on that griffon without any.

I think the idea of a Prince on a Griffon isn't a great idea, I'd put him on a horse and stick him in the Silver Helms. If you did want somebody riding a Griffon I'd take a Noble and at least take Swiftsense for it. I also think you've spent too much on core troops. IMHO High Elf core is the tax that we have to pay to take the scary special and rare choices. I'd chop at least a couple of core units and push the points into more special infantry and flying rare choices like Phoenix and Eagles. Lastly I'd get a dispel magic scroll for you Mage.
