What LA would Ravener have, and could i ignored the pesky requirement of it only applying an Ancient or older dragon?
Also are you comfortable with the Ravener's Soul Magic ability, or would you prefer to remove or adjust it?
You can have either one. The Ravener is stronger, but the Dracolich has a phylactery, making it much harder to kill permanently. Both are LA+4. The gods who brought you here have no difficulty ignoring the prereqs of templates. The +3 casterlevels from soul magic is a bit much, but you can have +1 casterlevel that does not in any way shape or form give you faster access to more or higher level spells. The using hit points as spell levels thing doesn't seem to apply since you get your spell slots from class levels.
