Welcome to Librarium Online!
As a new DE player, I leave it to our more experienced players to give me a bit of a heads-up in regards to what is more beneficial for my army.
My current army in the 750 to 1000 point range includes a standard equipt Dracon (Agon/Pistol/Drugs/Shield), Wyches on Raider, Raider Squad, Warrior Sniper Squad, and Reavers (and depending on foe, Sniper Squad swapped out for a second Raider Squad).
My question is... at this moment in time I have my Dracon riding on the Wyche's Raider. Is this the best place for him? Or should I put him on his own Reaver or even in one of the Raider Squad's Raiders? My thought is that since I'm obviously trying to get the Wyches into CC as quickly as possible, having the Dracon right there with them makes the most sense. But will putting "both of my CC eggs in one basket" make the Raider too much of a target? Would splitting them up be a better idea? What has been your experiences with putting a Dracon on a Wyche's Raider?

Either are viable choices, in the wych squad, you can keep it alive by giving it priority when hiding behind terrain and it should easily be in combat by turn 2 and then its all good. On a bike, you'd use the reavers as a lord delivery system but the thing is, against most squads, even he needs a supporting unit, so the reavers would probably have to stay tagging along with him. Do either because their both good ideas that alot of people use. I use an incubi retinue usally so yeah... or haemonculi but I have used drachites in wych squads.

In my opinion, yes, I think a wych squad benefits alot when a lord is with them.
Wyches and Lords are all cc orientated - they both complete each other well.
Haemy's and warriors are all shooty. Sybarite with a xenospasm or terrorfex that pins a squad allows you to get the extra rapid fire and destructor template in.
I personally dont like to use lords alone on a bike - If I want a lord on a bike then I put him in a reaver squad with blasters and a succubus and even with a Haemy as well. This unit can both be shooty and cc orientated. I generally keep them together.
Before the charge you got 2 blasters, some splinter rifle fire and a destructor - not bad. I used xenospasm on the succubus to add a blast template as well. Lord doesnt do much shooting wise.
On the charge you got 4 or 5 attacks with a power weapon with a dracon, 4 or 5 powerweapon attacks from the succubus (drug depending) and 4 attacks from a scissorhand and then the other reaver attacks as well.
Just my opinions, as you know they all have their downfalls. For example a wych raider with a lord on it is around 300 points all in one flying cardboard box. Lord on a reaver loses his mobility (no more 12" assault) and so on.
I usually use mine with either a squad of Wyches, or a retinue of Incubi/Warriors.
