Hard to say. As a whole, Krayt didn't accumulate very many feats (especially in the area of lightsaber combat.) Aside from toying with Cade, and slaying numerous Imperial Knights, I'd say his best feat in that area was his battle with post-RotS Obi-Wan. During that battle, Krayt (then still A'Sharad) appeared to be more than a match for Kenobi in the saber department. In fact, Kenobi only 'won' after he became visibly angry and used a force attack to rip A'Sharad's arm off (cheap.) Don't know if that's really enough to give him the edge against the likes of Maul AND Savage in a duel, though.
However, in the force and all-out battles, Legacy Krayt almost certainly wins. Legacy War Krayt would dominate even more so.

Really? Thats interesting, I didn't know Krayt was that powerful. Savage Opress's new feats a pretty good, but I suppose he does have the major handicap of not being able to block FLightning yet. I can see that being a gamebreaker.
Force only is the one in which the pair is in the biggest trouble. Maul's got pretty much no force feats, and Opress has good TK but as mentioned no defense against lightning (all the more-so with no saber).
And of course, post-rez Krayt has Cade's shatterpoint power and can kill with a touch. He was also using force illusion to show Cade a vision of the future but I don't know if that was new or something he always had. Might've been always considering how it's Wyyrlock's speciality and Wyyrlock had to have learned it from someone.
So in a force battle it's not remotely fair
The best example of which was the first time when he was surrounded by four and it took four attacks to kill the lot of them, with only the Emperor's cousin so much as dodging one blow. No surprise, no catching off-guard, he just owned them.
Post the quote, plz. Because neither AotC or RotS mentions the Jedi having to use the force to 'bend' force lightning into their sabers. Like I mentioned above: when a lightsaber is placed in front of force lightning, it [the lightning] is simply absorbed or reflected... Just like a blaster bolt (in the sources I'm familiar with, at least.)

"Malgus interposed his lightsaber, drew the lightning to it, and started walking toward Adraas. The power swirled around the red blade, sizzling, crackling, pushed against Malgus, but he strode through it. The skin of his hands blistered but Malgus endured the pain, paid it as the price of his cause." pg 246.
AotC and RotS do not have to explicitly (or implicitly for that matter) mention this for it to be a fact. As mentioned by ares, there are numerous sources stating that this is the case, thereby making it canon, seeing as how it does not contradict any GL material.
