I'd say Petrucci's as much as Portnoy's. Maybe also Jordan's...
Anyway, although I'm not into the music as some years ago, but I must say I actually liked
Black Clouds Silver Linings pretty good! Some cool songs in there! And I really LOLed when
Mike P suddenly pulled out a lick in 5 note groupings (don't remember where exactly now),
so he must have practiced or picked up something
, haha! I've never heard him do anything
in five before that. (Except for bars in five of course, but that's different.)
