If your sorcerer is for summoning why go MoT? Without it you can roll all 3 powers on malefic demonology, plus you save 15 points

I've never played against normal tau, yet alone cheesy tau so unfortunately I can't help you on that front.

Against Tau, one of the best things we have access to are Land Raiders with Dirge Casters. It stops their overwatch shenanigans.

The other thing you can do is load up on havocs and other units with weapon ranges of 36+ inches and make sure you deploy your stuff at least 31" away from the Tau.

The most important thing is to take out their markerlights first, then focus on other units.

An allied soul grinder of nurgle can also be effective, behind a ruin it forces the Tau player to spend a lot of marker lights combatting it. And its blast is 36" range.

If you have access to forgeworld there are a bunch of things you could do with a combined arms detachment. Tau love conversion beamer rapiers and with love I mean hate. The Infernal Relic Sicaran can do a number on Tau Transports. A Fire Raptor or Storm eagle with a Dirge Caster and the Screams of Lugganath also ruins their day. Brass Scorpions are all kinds of fun.

Lastly when you are tired of fighting Tau, stuff your whole army in 2-3 Chaos Spartan Assault Tanks with ceremite plating, use sorcerers with Heretech to boost your AV to 15 if you can get the power and bring an Armoured Ceremite Typhon Siege Tank along. Admittedly just the Typhon will already be enough to do some serious damage.
