    As far as we know there is no such thing as the best opening. The Sicilian dragon is known as the most blood thirsty openings for black in the sicilian, which itself is known as a combative opening. I play it (with lots of success OTB) but would recomend it only after studying it and playing it alot in minatures and online before even thinking of playing it OTB do to its razor sharp positions.

    It depends on how much time you have for studying openings.

    I used to play the Classical Dragon but resorted to Hyper Accelerated Dragon and have been very successful since.

    The Hyper Accelerated Dragon

    Check out mychess blog about Hyper Accelerated Dragon and see what you'll think.

    If your very aggresive the Dragon is the best opening for you. Super Gm Carlsen plays it so his anylasis must show that it is good.

    I like the najdorf as black, but both require a lot of studying to play them well.
