Mark my words, he'll be killed by them just like the First Doctor.
I actually hope so.
Would that make them the most successful enemies of the Doctor?
I'm not even sure the daleks have killed a regeneration offhand, apart from creating that metacrisis doctor.
It's quite possible that a dalek shot is what caused the spaceship crash which killed the eighth doctor. And that's worth more than a regeneration, I think, since he didn't regenerate, he actually died and had to be resurrected by the Sisterhood of Karn. Going by regenerations, though, if you count time lords as a single enemy they took out more. The Time Lord council took out the second, the Master took out the fourth and the Rani took out the sixth.
On the "tenth planet" cybermen: I'm fine with them using them as long as they don't append in stomping noises.
The Timelords are also at least indirectly responsible for the War Doctor (since his regeneration was at least partially to do with the Time War) and the 10th Doctor (Rassilion's scheme and Master leaving the nuclear bolt running is what setup the circumstances for the 10th Doctor's sacrifice.) Technically speaking they also caused the 11th Doctor's regeneration since he probably would have lived for a bit longer otherwise.
The Daleks are also indirectly responsible for the War Doctor (same as above), 9th Doctor (their actions are what prompted Rose to absorb the Time Vortex), 10th Doctor (threat of them returning) and 11th Doctor's (the whole fight at Trenzalore) regenerations.
Amusing bit is that both the Timelords and the Daleks are also responsible for his new set of regenerations (had the Daleks not been so damn persistent and left him alone he probably would have died of old age), so they are both the Doctor's worst enemies and greatest helpers.
