Luke >= Vader Kol < Bane Hoth < Malak Kyp > Ventress Cade < Vastor Lobi << Desann Vao > Tavion Ikrit < Wynn Urr > Bandon Zekk > Sirak Power - Certainly he has the advantage in power, if mostly due to the presence of Skywalkers. But it's not a very large edge, considering Vader and the other dark lords with him. Skill - Here is where I come ahead, considering that we have several highly trained and formidible Sith Lords. Generally, the Sith tend to be ahead of the Jedi in skill but the Jedi win out due to some technicality or other. Do not underestimate the value of having several Dark Lords of the Sith and other talented Darksiders all together. They have incredible skill. Cohesion - I don't see the issue with Vader and Ventress, I really don't. Vader is very different from Anakin Skywalker, and Ventress was serving the apprentice of Vader's final master. Certainly Bane and Sirak would have issues, but Sirak is a very minor part of the team. More importantly, we have several powerful Dark Lords of the Sith--some of whom are used to working with/under another. Shadow's team has the advantage, of course, but it's not nearly as big as he'd like to make out. Experience - Vader, Bane, and Malak have tremendous experience. They're all dark lords of the Sith, they've all went through warfare and fighting for most of their time, and they've all faced tremendously talented Jedi and Sith. Ventress has Jedi pelts by the dozen hanging off of her belt. Desann went toe to toe with Katarn and Skywalker and gave them both trouble--and these are the individuals who took out Jerec and HIM the Emperor Palpatine. This is no small feat. Further, Wynn is the head of the entire Sith academy under Revan and Malak. That speaks volumes about his knowledge and experience. The only holes in experience are Tavion, Bandon, and Sirak--who are at the bottom of the field anyway. What has Kol done? What about Tresina Lobi? Cade's a bounty hunter, so we know all about that padawan's experience... Vao is a n00b and Zekk is a small fry. He doesn't have the edge in experience, not by a long shot. Good edges in skill and experience combine and reinforce each other. They're certainly more significant than a dubious edge in power and a slightly more significant edge in cohesion.
