What do you think of this? Would it be effective? My friend was thinking about that a while ago and we theorized that it would be quite a powerfull team..

what do you guys think?
We have such a party in our group, a Human warlord, a Halfling Warlock and a Half elf Paladin, and are finding they work out well, the only problem we encountered was no-one having training in perception which we corrected at 2nd level by the warlord taking skill training perception
... walk into a tavern and the tavern-keep says, what is this, some kinda joke?
Leader striker defender.

WORKS.
The warlord is a leader/defender. The paladin is a defender/leader. The warlock is a striker/controller.

Looks like you have all four roles filled.

Not only do you have the roles covered, but you also have the three power sources covered Martial, Divine and Arcane.
yeah 4e worked rly hard to delete class dependency. im running a game for a rogue and wizard and although a couple back to back crits have put them in a tight spot more than once they have always come out alright.
even if it were to say become problematic without an actual controller (your only missing archetype) at any given time all you would have to do to remedy that is go easy on minions. you want to challenge them but you don't have to sandbag them--did you throw perception checks at the constantly their whole first level?

this is also what my friend thought of, some sort of "jack of all trade" party.

Thx for the input
Perhaps one of them should take Ritual Casting. It's not a life-and-death issue, but it might be a bit of a frustration if they come across a stash of arcane reagents or residuum or have obsolete weapons that they'd disenchant and no one could do it.
