Looking for Bad-ass, Black-decoed Decepticons

Hi guys! No, this is not a WANT thread.

I'm forming a team of Decepticons to pit against my Classics Wreckers, and I want to ask you guys for ideas.

The core of my team is Maketoys Chaos/Paladin. He'll be the leader of the group. In case you're not familiar with 3rd party figures, this is him.

I was thinking what's a leader without followers or minions? Conveniently, I have Generations Sky Shadow and First Edition Vehicon in hand, so they are my first two recruits.

I'm looking for two to three more to complete my team.

Here are some criteria:

1) Deco has to be predominantly BLACK
2) Can't look completely out of place in a Classics line up. Which means maybe all Animated figures are out. I think some movie and TF Prime figures should fit in nicely.
3) No Optimus Prime molds. So no Scourge/Nemesis Prime.
4) Has to look menacing/evil. For example, Classics Skywarp would fit the above criteria, but would still look out of place.

I would appreciate your inputs because I got back to collecting just last year, so I'm unfamiliar with lines after G1 and before TF Prime.

Right now, I'm considering ROTF Mindwipe and TFP Silas Breakdown. United Lugnut would also have been great, but I just realized that he's not black.

Advanced thanks to you all!

EDIT June 6, 2013

I'd recommend the following figures:

Retrax: Beast Wars

CrazyBolt: Beast Wars Neo

Arachnid: Beast Wars Version or Prime Version.

Lockdown: Movie.

Barricade: 1st Movie.

BWII: BB and Starscream [aka G2 ATB Megatron and Starscream or RID Smokescreen and Dreadwind]

TFA Megatron: Shadowblade Repaint.

ROTF Megatron: Shadowblade Version.

Tomahawk with 07 Movie Stockade's head makes a great G1 Tracer, especially with the alternate, less chicken-y leg transformation. Should fit in your team nicely.

Thanks guys! Great suggestions. Here are my thoughts so far:

My mind is made up on BB & Starscream. I also came across Cybertron Dark Fang Wolf, I think I prefer him to Nemesis Breaker.

Crankcase sure looks very menacing, but not very classic-y.

WFC Darkside Megs would have been perfect; I had him before but I sold him. And he might not want to cede leadership to The Fallen.

Cyberton Soundblaster is okay, if I can find him. Then I realize, FOC Soundblaster would be PERFECT! And he's readily available - EDIT : I googled, I think there's no "Cybertron Soundblaster"

Dark Skyfire looks great! But it might be hard to get him for a good price.

So yeah, for now it's BB and Starscream, Dark Fang Wolf, and FOC Soundblaster. Thanks for all the input guys, I really appreciate it! I'll post pics of the team when they're complete
