Grand Master and Brotherhood Champion join the Paladin Squad in the Land Raider. Grand Master uses Grand Strategy to make AT LEAST the Paladin Squad able to take and hold objectives (hopefully both purifiers as well!)
Rhinos flank the Land Raider, acting as ablative armour. The three strike squad rhinos go in front and on first turn (12" move) deploy smoke to screen land raider and purifier rhinos.
Turn 2 all move 6" and fire in assault mode. Land Raider moves to deploy Paladins in either this turn or next.

Paladin Squad is, IMO nearly unbeatable. Brotherhood Champion can take on Inv Saves, Grand Master has 4+ save, increased to 3+ in CC. Apothecary is giving Feel No Pain. and Squad is hitting first on an I6...

The rest of the army stays in their rhinos as long as possible firing psycannons on heavy setting and storm bolters.

Deep striking is still a good option Deep striking against daemons often doesn't turn out well at all, though.
