2 jacks, rahn, and mage hunters I would presume. Prob a light jack that's an arc node with a heavy jack of your choice as most are pretty good

If you want to play Rahn you should definitely get a Phoenix heavy warjack. Its an arc-node (allows you to cast spells through it), it has a good gun, a fairly good sword, a great special attack that sets everything within 2'' on fire and heals D6 damage boxes automatically every turn.
A good unit for Rahn would be the House Shyeel battle mages. They can move your opponents models around the board which is great for setting up charge lanes.
An arcanist would be a good investment too as he can repair your 'jacks and increase their strength.

The above models would put you at ten points which is a good place to start when learning the rules.
Necrons - 4000pts
Salamanders - 1000
Retribution of Scyrah - 63
Trollbloods - 35

Welcome to a game that supports its players and corrects rules that don't make sense!

I'd honestly say to start w/ the BB. I know it's not what you want, but it's a great $50 investment, and playing strictly BB games is the best way to learn. As someone that was advised this and chose not to listen, I can't tell you how valuable those 10-30 BB games can be to a new player.

You could always buy an alternate battlebox.

Find a caster you like and buy 11 points in jacks.

With rhan, I'd go sphynx, phoenix for BB games.

with Rhan you'd definitely want a ouple units of battle mages and a couple magister solos to take full advantage of his feat (boosted attack and damage rolls for magic attacks). The battle mages are also immune to blast damage which makes them more survivable. Then you'd want an arc node such as the chimera, phoenix, or hypnos. It depends on how many points you're playing and play style though.

I almost always include a unit of invictors with ua in my lists as they're a pretty versatile unit for range and melee attacks.
For a 25 point Rhan list you might look at this:
2x battle mage units
1x invictors with unit attachment
1x magister
1x arcanist (or soulless escort on the invictors if you play against a magic heavy army)
1x chimera

She's a pretty good caster. That setup is 14 points, you should get an arcanist to fill in the 15 point quota.
