I would be as logical as I could picking a Black Ops team. Meaning, that anyone too flashy appearance wise, sorry Nightcrawler and Anole, would be too risky, in my opinion. So here is my take on X-Force: Black Ops Team.
Cable (Leader) -He is the bomb when it comes to this stuff!
Warpath -Muscles beyond compare and a bad@$$ brawler.
M -Telepathy is a must when your stratigising an attack, oh, and flight and extra mucsle is cool too.
X-23 -I feel that Wolvering has gone a bit soft over the years and that he lacks the kind of unattached ferocity that X-23 still has.
Northstar -Superspeed is just handy in a fight against a crowd.
Boom-Boom -She has a past with this team and provides a much needed power boost.
Domino -Kinda like the Zordon of the crew, but can most def throw down with the best of them.
Aurora -Is still finding sanity to be a little surreal, but is mostly there to help out Domino and the team.
You're superior to pryde in my eyes -tlp
Are you trying to fight me, teddy? I believe in gender equality, I will falcon punch you - Jan 'slacker' Brady
Cyclops, Storm, Jubilee, X-23, Sage, Threnody, Gambit, and Dr. Nemesis!!!
Cyclops is not the new Magneto... he would not waste his time with Rogue.
The LACK of Cipher, on a BLACK OPS team is entirely negligible. Shame on you all.

Plot-wise, I'd sidestep the kill-squad angle for more of an Ocean's 11 team.
This is tough! I was a fan of the second incarnation of X-Force (Wolverine, Warpath, Domino, Wolfsbane, Archangel, Vanisher, X-23) but also love the Extinction Team (Storm, Warpath, Domino, Colossus, Psylocke). So maybe a mixture of the two? Then again I Loved Cable's X-Force too...I'll go with:
(Reserve members - X-23, Feral, Beast, Rictor)
SHSO name is Hawk Machine
Keep the current roster and add Skids and Caliban. Actually, we can take out AoA Crawler and bring Cloak in.
