Here is another one for today.

What this build gives you: 17 pre-epic BAB for 6 unarmed attacks per round (7 with flurry of blows); your unarmed attacks apply 2 negative levels each giving you temp HP each time; enemies you kill with your fists are transformed into level-scaled wights you control; wights explode like a bomb on death damaging everyone around (destruction retribution); can shapeshift into any creature you kill with your unarmed attacks for 24 hours (you can even use their special abilities) giving you a boost to physical abilities and AC; wisdom to AC; flurry of blows; hide in plain sight; 17d6 death attack; true death attack; additional bonuses to strength, dexterity, constitution, saves and skill checks for 24 hours after draining levels.

Weak points: critical-immune and sneak attack-immune enemies must just be beat down, no sneak attack damage boost.  High DR and enemies with immunity to level drain may give you trouble - I suggest always having a good enchanted kama handy you can quickly switch to and deal with those enemies.  Not many options for healing - it is a good idea to get regeneration equipment on this build.  The saves and AC are good in this build, but not as crazy high as I like them to be.

Note, this is a great candidate for an undead template like necropolitan (you will need to use Soul Radiance to get a humanoid's form to qualify) for the immunities and getting healed by the negative energy burst when your wights explode.  Make sure to buy off the githzerai level adjustment as soon as you can (level 6 and 9).

+10k for the name alone.  LOL!

With that high WIS, you may consider Zen Archery for missile weapons.

Yeah this is the rare build that has a ton of wiggle room for feats, so you could totally work zen archery in there.
