So, I contend the current paradigm of (usually five or six, so let's say six) 6-man Fire Dragons in a Wave Serpent precludes the consideration of anything else... say, for example - and I'm just pulling this out of thin air here - oh, say 10 Fire Dragons?
Okay, to recap that's the way I use them, two squads at 1850 and nowadays probably three at 2000+. I contend it gives you a unit that threatens anything! Now, we're considering them alone, but Eldar more than any other army rely on synergy, so you'd use your Dragons in combination with your Farseer, among others. Doom, Fortune, Guide - if you're reading this, you don't need me to walk you through the possibilities.
Here's an example from Game 6 of BoLSCon 2009. Also, be aware I didn't consider this an optimized list; for reasons I won't go into now, I didn't take my Council list. That said, I did feel like I could present a threat to anyone I played.
Note I'm not advocating for Eldar the way I played them then. As I move on with this series of articles, I'll talk about what I believe are good options for Eldar in 2010. I'm actually more in agreement with trends now that maintain Eldar need a fully Mech'd out army. I have a few twists to offer, perhaps.
