    Yeah I think I can help you out.

    Duskblade 3, for the Arcane Channel. Full Base Attack Bonus, plus a few spell

    Battledancer (Dragon Magazine Compendium) 1 for Cha to AC while not wearing armor. Full BaB, Unarmed Damage bonus, but only 1 good save, reflex. Skill list is pretty good, though. See Monk.


    Swashbuckler (CW) 3 for Int to damage. Insightful Strike only works on Weapon Finesseable weapon, but stacks with your Str to damage. Full BaB, free Weapon Finesse, and +1 to reflex when in light armor.


    Monk 1 + Kung fu Genius (Int instead of Wis for Monk abilities, including AC) or Ascetic Mage (Cha to AC instead of Wis, Sorc and Monk stack for AC bonus, Arcane Strike-esgue ability). Since you don't use Armor or a Shield (You have spells for that), Int or Cha to AC is awesome.


    Warblade (ToB) 3 Full BaB, Int to Reflex at level 1, Int to critical comfirmation at level 3, Uncanny Dodge at level 2

    Crusader 3 (ToB) Full BaB.Cha to Will at , and Reroll a Save 1/day.

    Swordsage 2. Wis to AC, variant for Improved Unarmed Strike (Maybe use Ascetic Monk), +1 to initiative, and Weapon Focus bonus. It's Maneuvers Gives access to shadow blade feat (Adds Dex to damage for certain weapon
    These 3 get maneuvers, which are awesome. You count your other level as 1/2 a level in one of these for determining which maneuvers/stance you can choose. White Raven Tactics and Iron Heart Surge are both great, as is Sapphire Nightmare Strike.

    Paladin 2 for Cha to Save. Full BaB.

    Totemist 2 (Incarnate is low BaB, the last one sucks) for Soulmelds lolololol! You'll need an actual giude for this, but they are versatile.

    EDIT: Wow, I should write a Gish Handbook.

    I dub this the Snowbluff Axiom.
