Spark Plug

The max draw is 100 Amps limited by the 100 amp breaker. It don't matter how many loads I have. They are safely limited by the main.

I could string 5 200 amp sub-panels as long as they are fed/limited by the 100 Amp main.....

Actually I'm pretty sure you can't
There are limits on what you can connect to the bus
Attaching a 200a breaker on a 100a bus would violate code
