Anti-dragon adventure: which are the best PRCs?

As the title states, I'm going to start an adventure focused only on hunting dragons. we'll start at level 15th. Does anybody know if exist any good prc specifically focused on fighting dragons (like the vassal of Bahamut)?
Thanks in advice. 
Draconomicon has 4: Dragonslayer, DragonStalker, Hordestealer and Platinum Knight.

One thing to consider is a level of ranger for favored enemy (dragons) and the favored power attack feat (Complete Warrior). That gives you 3 to 1 returns on power attack against dragons. This works especially well with the strong-arm variant ranger combat style from Dragon 326, which gives power attack at 2nd level.

Ok. In the while the master decided to let us start at level 18 but no dragon magazines allowed. The party will be of 6 people, what do you think about this formation:
1 wizard
1 cleric (melee style)
1 barbarian/primeval
1 psion
1 fighter
1 ranger (thrown weapons style)
(except for the primeval the other PRCs are still to be decided) 
If they are straight classed, I think your ranger and fighter will probably lag behind the other PCs. They ought to do lots of multi and prestige classing. Even then they will have a hard time.

"Can't say enough how much I agree with Krusk"        "Wow, thank you very much"

"Your advice is the worst"

If that group of characters is 18th-level it tells us very little about the group.  Maybe the Barbarian/Primeval can be figured out as could a Ranger 18 (which isn't something I'd normally do) but there are so many ways to build/play a straight wizard, cleric, or fighter to 18th-level it is impossible to guage the group's abilities.  One thing that does seem to be missing is the Rogue type who can deal with all the "little things" you may encounter on your way to the dragon.

If you're starting at 18th-level with a group of six dragon hunters I'd expect a lot more spellcasting.

For the wizard i really like Incantatrix and Mage Killer
For the Cleric i have no idea
For the Psion the Thrallherd looks good, if you go leadership you can plot you as a whole band of killing dragons with siege weapons and stuff
For the fighter the classic, Dragonslayer
For the Rangeri would suggest dragonslayer too but DragonStalker seems more apropriate. 
For the Cleric i have no idea


I like the Thaumaturgist.  Or Cleric.

I do, however, have one last lesson on this subject. That last one? The only build in this post that can one-shot average opponents[by dealing twice as much damage as they have HP? I would argue that it is not optimized. Why isn't it optimized? Because it's overkill. Overkill is NOT optimizing. This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

So when do you think Bachmann will be saying she met a mother the previous night that had a son who got a blood transfusion using a gay guy's blood, and now the son is retardedly gay?
When she meets CJ's mom?

With your minions and siege weapons, you close the dragon's wayout while the actual killers go dungeon crawling after it. The psion's thrall, or the cohort can be an Expert/Rogue to deal with traps along the way.
A ranger with FE/Dragons will completely outperform a Fighter in damage in a dragonocentric campaign.

A Platinum Knight of bahamut is death incarnate to evil dragons. Dragonwrack does PERMANENT damage to evil dragons...even if they live and run away, they are permanently weakened. Incredibly dangerous class agianst dragons.

Wizard is fine.
I would give it spontaneous diviniation ACF, Domain ACF, build it like so

Wizard 5/Incantatrix 10/War weaver 5

Cleric should have Spell and War domains, with spontaneous domain (war).
Take it to 20.


Barbarian should be Spirit totem(lion) and possibly whirling frenzy or another rage variant depending on the build.
Alternatively, Barbarian could be a Crusader of chaos 1/ Barb1/ Crusader 18. Far cooler.


Psion is free to choose what it wants to do.

Fighter should be a warblade, or a sneak attacking thug.

Ranger should be a swift hunter ACF druid With Intuative strike feat.
