The new cult book looks really fun and I have already made a few lists that look neat.

The first one is not as mean and is designed for a highlander tournament (with no formations and max 500 points of allies) coming up soon.
1500 Cult with allied nids

CAD
HQ 1 Patriarch ML2 (Warlord Trait: Ambush Leader) 115
HQ 1 Magus ML 2 with The Crouchling 85
Elite 20 Pure Strain Genestealers 280
Elite 10 Hybrid Metamorphs, 8 lash whips, 2 claws and cult icon 120
Troops 20 Acolyte Hybrids with cult icon 170
Troops 16 Neophyte Hybrids with 2 GL's and 2 Mining Lasers 120
Heavy 1 Leman Russ Exterminator with hull lascannon 140

Cult Total 1030

Allies
HQ 1 Hive Tyrant-Wings and 2 Devourers 230
Troops 1 Mucolid 15
Heavy 1 Carnifex with Dual Devourers 150
No Slot 1 Drop Pod 75
Nid Total 470

Models 73 Total Points 1500


My first super competitive list looks like:
1850 Flyrants and Cult Detachment (Infantry)
Leviathan Detachment
HQ 1 Flyrant with DD 230
1 Flyrant with DD 230
1 Flyrant with DD 230
Troops 1 Mucolid 15
1 Mucolid 15
1 Mucolid 15

Genestealer Cult Formation
First 1 Patriarch ML2 115
Curse 20 Genestealers 280
Lords 1 Magus ML2 65

Brood Cycle
HQ 1 Acolyte Iconward 65
Troops 5 Acolyte Hybrid 40
Troops 5 Acolyte Hybrid 40
Troops 5 Acolyte Hybrid 40
Troops 10 Neophyte Hybrid 50
Troops 10 Neophyte Hybrid 50
Elite 5 Genestealers 70
Elite 5 Hybrid Metamorphs with whip 55
Subterranean Swarm
HQ 1 Primus 75
Elite 8 Hybrid Metamorphs, 6 whips and 2 claws 88
Troops 5 Acolyte Hybrid 40
Troops 5 Acolyte Hybrid 40
Models 93 Total Points 1848

Flyrants pop things open and do some damage. The first curse formation goes after big targets like deathstars and then the rest just hop in and out of reserves and try to cause mass panic and confusion while going after weaker objectives.

It would be even stronger if they allowed formation because that is basically the "first curse" formation minus the buff the genstealers get.

The other thing to consider is-should you run the cult as a CAD? The cult could be amazing as a CAD, you can be popping up all over the board with Objective Secured troops to steal objectives and contest them. 4 of 6 results get you close to any objective you want and then you can run to get even closer if you needed to.
