Baaz Draconian for D&D Next

So I want to run Dragonlance using D&D Next, and after Greg Bilsland suggested re-skinned Hobgoblins for Draconians I gave it a whirl. I looked at the old DL-1 Dragons of Despair and  the Dragonomicon Metallic Dragons for some other ideas.

The Stone Dead ability wording is strait from the DL1 adventure and I will probably tweek some of the other actions he has like the Leaping Attack. I wanted to incorporate that from the 4e version since the gliding aspect is mentioned in the original version of the monster. 

Increased the to-hit bonus for the melee attacks.

Baaz Draconian
Medium Humanoid (Draconian)
Armor Class 16 (Scalemail)
Hit Points 11 (2d8+2)
Speed 25 ft., Fly 35 ft (Must land at end of move or fall prone)
Senses darkvision 60 ft.
Str 12 (+1)     Dex 14 (+2)     Con 12 (+1)
Int 10 (+0)      Wis 10 (+0)     Cha 13 (+1)
Alignment lawful evil
Languages Common, Draconic

Steadfast: The Baaz Draconian cannot be frightened while it can see a friendly creature within 30 feet of it that also has this trait.

Stone Dead:  When a Baaz Draconian teaches 0 hit points, it turns into a stone statue. The person who struck the death blow must make a successful Dexterity Check with a -3 penalty or his weapon is stuck in the statue. The statue crumbles to dust within ld4 rounds, freeing the weapon. Its armor and weapons remain.

Melee Attack—Longsword: +3 to hit (reach 5 ft.; one creature). Hit: 1d8+1 slashing damage.

Melee Attack—Claws: +3 to hit (reach 5 ft.; one creature). Hit: 1d4+1 slashing damage.

Multiattack: The Baaz Draconian makes two attacks with its claws.

Leaping Attack: —Longsword: +4 to hit (range 25 ft.; one creature). Hit: 1d8+1 slashing damage.

Disciplined: The Baaz Draconian chooses a creature within its reach. The next attack roll made against that target by a friendly creature that also has this trait has advantage.
