Super evasive soap-slippery list...
except for the Lvl2.
I would rather expect a Lvl 1 on steed.
The Lore is surprising, as the Life sig spell is useless. Shadows would make much more sense, if only for the sig spell.

The list got massacred against a balanced Lizardmen list. What I lacked was board control because of lack of heavy shooting and magic. Also load out of the Dragon was not good, as it had only 5+ save against artillery, so got easily killed by magic and enemy shooting. Core dark riders is cool, but I really miss to have at least one infantry block for ranks and threat. Basic failure of the list is that is lacks artillery and threats. It looked good on paper, but will get torn apart by most balanced/strong lists that castle up.

That's the fate of soap-slippery lists.
Good against large blocks with little shooting.
Bad against long range shooting with good static defense to protect it.
Rock/paper/scissors.
