To be honest though, a grudge thrower with 2x accuracy 1xpen is as bad as a cannon.
As a former dwarf player, I think it would be a tough choice to take 1 cannon and chose burning or not (obviously you hope burning). With Sphinxs, thundertusks, Ironblasters, Mortis Engines and all manner of big gribblie, I would be more tempted to take 2 cannon, 1 Grudgie this year. Mind you, I never played an Anvil, so probably 2 cannon, 2 grudgie would be my own choice.
Samanos, back on topic....I do like the list. Looks fun to play. You've combined got a fun magic phase, and a dragon. lots of Channel rolls and the crystal hopefully will compensate for lack of a l4 and only +3 to dispel rather than +5.
As has been pointed out, if you are looking to cull enemiew down before they get to you, with magic, why not throw in a little more shooting? Might help overall.
Another little tweak might be your dragon rider. Without my book, can you fit an amulet of light in place of the Ironcurse Icon? Making the Dragon attacks magical might be AWESOME in the right context, and I can't see it ever hurting. I'd probably drop the Sword of Might if I did this. HE Dragon riders never need to be about hurting someone when there is a Star Dragon. They just need to try and avoid death.
Overall though, I really like the list. It's not one I would use, but I can see it working. Protecting the mage bunkers might be tough against some opponents though....
yes theodore i think i lack shooting as well. since i am going for the 2xs7 bunsihment all i need is shooting .
i will post an updated version of this list soon enough

Dude, your taking 4 wizards.... I have one word: Fireballs!! If your gonna go nut###### overboard with something you should make it super cool and just be hurling fireballs all day, then dragon the big stuff. Its a dragon, itll be fine (except against shaggoths.... Dont fight them)
Otherwise, playtest your LoL and report back. Personally I wouldnt be too scared of this list, but I run warriors so im not afraid of just wading through the hurt.
Ronin. remember that fireballs are only s4 . S7 bunishments are scary ;)can kill a dragon or a greater deamon
never mind the fact that they can wound T5 monsters on +2
