3 (or 4, if you don't like damage rolls) chances to fail. And that's not even including that every other army out there tries to shuts down Powers whenever they can. Compare to a Librarian Dreadnought with Lance. While it may have failed it's Psychic Test - or otherwise failed to kill a vehicle - it's still a Dreadnought with an S6 Force Weapon.
Hive Guard are great. But, AV13+ still is a problem. Like Predators, Leman Russes, and Ironclads with dual-Flamers that are about to tear your swarm a new one.
Of course, there are Tyrannofexes. But, they cost as much as a Land Raider (or Mephiston) and aren't anywhere near as good. Not to mention that they're apparently a pain in the butt to make - if you can find a conversion idea that you like.
Tyranids (or, rather, Malan'tai Lists) were incredibly good right up until that happened.
Also sadly the FAQ has gotten rid of the best anti-mech Doom's ability to hit people inside transports.

You can fight like a krogan or run like a leopard but you'll never be better than Commander Shepard.
