What's the best state of the art standoff weapon deployed today? Consider Cost/accuracy/number available and blast effect ?? We know the Tomahawk works ... No nukes ..

Well, I'm not sure it's a totally fair comparison considering their platforms don't overlap - last I checked, ships don't fly over land and fighter-bombers don't have VLS systems with dozens of missiles a pop... and they usually don't float in water very well, either I think any comparison has to be taken with a grain of salt, because the platforms make a huge difference in the way these weapons are meant be deployed, so it's never a level playing field between the two.

That said, my preference would be the JASSM... assuming it works as intended

I'd say it's a toss up:
JASSM-ER - LO, a lot of standoff and given that it's been in production for several years, there's likely quite an inventory built up.
Kh-101 - LO, even more standoff. Given how many the RFAF has used in Syria, I wouldn't be surprised if their inventory is quite depleted.

Depending on the IADS, JDAM-ER with an increased range of 45mi is a great bang for the buck, costing only $25k vs +$1M. F-35s and Raptors should be able to drop those at will.
