Concur, stay away from it. Lynchguard are slow and no ranged weapons. Kill everything else and then either kill them with mass fire or just wing on objectives. Unless he splits out the characters he/she can only hold one.

He also has 6 wraiths, and 3 tomb blades, I played against this list of his and the deathstar once the unit was on the ground, was slow and I was easy to out manouver it for a few turns.

You defeat Deathstars by firing a photon torpedo into its thermal exhaust port, or with the help of Ewoks. Come on.

Deploy an Aquila strongpoint with either vortex missiles or macro cannon and pray you don't scatter.
