Best advantage against them are the following:
1: double missile suits, shasvre with cyclic ion and a missile Gives you between 10 and 13 s7 shots or a handy blast template.
2: r'varna. Since they are now very bulky, every hit counts as s 7 ap4 2 hits.
3. Submunition hammerhead. It may be only a 3 to wound but with longstrike you have bs5.
4. missilesides. Drown them in wounds.
See my posts there: http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?p=289843#p289843
Double missile suits are not listed, because they can provide an average of 1.00 wounds for more than 140points per wounds (with the Canoptek formation and the 4+ reanimation).
R'varna is too costy to be tied in CC by these beasts
Submunitions have too few shots.
The only way to reliably take them is massed fire (Missilesides or our cheap S5 shots)

Darktrider is a nice addition (like against Nurgle marines) to help with S5 shots. The cost of ion rifle is too high with the randomness of blast to be effective IMHO. But Darkstrider in a large unit of FW with an Etheral nearby (or maybe a fireblade) can become dangerous to soften the wraiths.
