    Ebony dragons are a magical null. Their very nature disrupts and destroys magic nearby. Paradoxically they themselves are highly magical creatures, able to breath out blasts of pure magical energy, and even gain sustenance from the power fueling magical creations.
    Ebony dragons tend to live in secluded mountains. They are vain and egotistical creatures that enslave lesser races so that they can sing its praises. Their egos have trouble accepting equals or near equals and few ebony dragons lair together for long, nor do they accept powerful casters dwelling in the neighboring regions.
    Ebony dragons, like most dragons, can sustain themselves by eating almost anything. Their preferred food, though, are materials in which magical energy is concentrated. This includes magic items, but also the flesh of arcane casters and fey; living constructs are considered an especially tasty treat.

    Special abilities:

    Breath Weapon (Su): An ebony dragon has two types of breath weapon to choose from. The first is a line of eldritch energy dealing untyped damage as listed above (Reflex for half), the second is a cone of dispelling energy that functions as a targeted dispel magic on each creature and object in the area with a bonus on the dispel check is equal to 2 + twice the ebony dragon's age category.

    Spell Absorption (Su): Whenever an ebony dragon's SR stops a spell or spell-like ability it gains 5 temporary hit points per level of the spell. These hit points last 24 hours.

    Consume Enchantment (Su): An ebony dragon may spend a full-round action to eat a magic item. If it does so it heals 15 hp per caster level of the magic item if the item has unlimited uses or daily charges (eternal wand), or 5 hp per caster level with a one-time item or an item with a limited number of charges (wand). It may not heal more than 15 hp per age category from one use of this ability. If it devours a minor artifact it is instead affected by a Heal spell except that it heals 15 hp per caster level of the minor artifact up to 15 hp per age category. This ability has no effect on major artifacts.

    Cold Iron Weapons: Due to an ebony dragon's natural ability to disrupt magical forces their natural attacks deal damage as if they were cold iron.

    Devour Magic (Su): Whenever a very young or older ebony dragon hits a target with its bite attack it performs a targeted greater dispel magic on the target except it does not affect magic items. The bonus on the dispel check is equal to 2 + twice the ebony dragon's age category.

    Ray Shielding (Su): 3/day a young or older ebony dragon may cause itself to become immune to rays and ranged touch attacks until the start of its next turn. To activate this ability requires an immediate action.

    Penetrate Magical Concealment (Su): A juvenile or older ebony dragon's attacks ignore concealment and miss chances granted by spells or spell-like abilities; this does not allow an ebony dragon to see invisible creatures or ignore the miss chance caused by invisibility, or incorporealness, nor does it allow them to ignore the miss chance caused by magically created darkness. They are also able to automatically determine which images created by Mirror Image, and are able to see through magically created fog without penalty.

    Spell-like Abilities: CL = twice their age category (instead of age category); At-Will: Spell Immunity (self only, may only have one use of this ability active at a time; old); 3/day: Otiluke's Suppressing Sphere (Adult), Antimagic Field (Ancient).

    Disjoining Scales (Su): Any magical weapon striking a great wyrm ebony dragon must make a Fortitude save (DC 36) or instantly lose all its magical properties as if it had been disjoined via Mage's Disjunction.

    Skills: Appraise, Bluff, and Spellcraft are class skills for an Ebony Dragon.

    So any ideas on CR or at least what dragon it's closest in power to?
