I would recommend that you not view Arcane Storm in this way. The ability is far less useful to the Whelpling than you seem to think. It inflicts very little damage, and its environmental effect is not very useful at lower levels since most of your battles will be against wild pets that rarely use debilitating stuns.
Azure Whelpling or Lil' Tarecgosa
The Azure Whelpling strikes me as a fine choice for your lineup. Use Wild Magic in place of Arcane Storm. Let Claw or Breath be your primary attack ability, and use Surge of Power as a particularly devastating Magic-type nuke. Its strength can be bolstered even further by prepping your target with your Oozeling's Corrosion or Acidic Goo abilities. The biggest issue, though, is that your Whelpling would be a glass cannon: You lack party healing abilities, and Surge of Power's cooldown leaves you wide open to attack.
If you want a Dragonkin with a different array of Magic-type abilities, you can try Lil' Tarecgosa. She boasts the same Magic abilities as the Whelpling, but their order is changed up a bit and she boasts additional abilities her contemporary lacks.
Winter's Little Helper or Father Winter's Helper
If you're looking for a damage dealer for this lineup I might consider one of the winter Gnomes. At least, they become interesting choices once 5.1 goes live and you can upgrade them to Rare quality. Their Elemental abilities would add a little variety to your lineup, especially when you encounter annoying Mechanical pets, and the combination of Call Blizzard and Ice Lance on a single pet is nice. Gift of Winter's Veil would your Magic-type mini-nuke with no cool down, allowing you to make use of your Moonlight effect round after round.
Arcane Blast is the Shadeling's only offensive Magic ability, but it can pack a punch. The Shadeling also boasts powerful Undead-type healing abilities that can help keep it in the fight longer, as well as your other pets.
Another pet that will become viable when quality upgrades are possible, this Skull only has a single Magic-type ability. That said, Spectral Strike is one of the strongest attacks available. Its miss chance can be annoying, but overwhelming power usually requires some form of limitation. It also boasts Unholy Ascension, which as an Undead pet it should be able to use on the turn it rises after being reduced to 0 hp.
