Wolf, jaguar (One MSE and one SieldBooster works nice) and .. yes .. stilll the dramiel.
You can also take a look at the Firetail.

Replace all your Rifters with Firetails (it's not much of a jump, Firetails are more or less a straight upgrade to Rifters and are your basic workhorse ship), then go for the Wolf. Just my opinion. (i.e. if you're quadruple popped collar cool)

Dramiels if you love Justin Bieber.

Daredevils if you wear sunglasses at all times, even at night and indoors.

The wolf is epic. The Jaguar is a lot more like a rifter. I don't like the firetail, but haven't flown it that much... Hound is a lot of fun.

Have you considered thrashers?

What's your style?

Shield Tank + High-Speed => Firetail, Dramiel

Shield Tank + Brawler / EWar => Jaguar

Armor Tank + Crazy-DPS Brawler => Wolf

And many more possibilities.

^this. Cheaper than than the T2/faction frigate, with good DPS output. Arty Thrasher has been the mainstay of my gank ops for years.

^ What's wrong with that? :P

_It's very simple, really. If you see Tengus on scan, they are ratting. If you see a shitload of Tengus, the Russians are blobbing. If you see Proteuses on scan, they will be on top of you in about a second. If you see a shitload of Proteuses, the big boys are having a goodfight. _
