- Recitation / Luminous Armor, Greater (Persist 7)

On even days, cast w/extend & persist Recitation & Ice Axe. On odd days, cast w/extend & persist Mass Lesser Vigor & Luminous Armor. When luminous armor expires, use one or both Restorations to fix the STR damage (could get away with voluntarily ending it an hour early, casting restoration, then praying for spells for the day, so that you might not need two restorations). Lastly, cast w/persist Divine Power (which refreshes Temp HP for the day)

Casting and persisting/extending all of these leaves you with one greater turn left for the day
When luminous armor wears off, it inflicts 1d2 Strength damage (sacrifice) Lesser Restoration fixes 1d4 ability damage, and is prepared twice just in case

Your next level goes into Sacred Exorcist, following level into Cleric, then a level of Death Delver, then back to Cleric
Most feats will be spent on extra turning, but you’ll want power attack at some point, due to your hugely buffed BAB and Strength. This becomes especially attractive once you have an animated shield to free up both hands for a heavy two-handed weapon

Luminous Armor only gives 8 AC bonus, same as full plate and gives additional penalty to being attacked in melee due to the brightness (-4 to hit), making you a wonderful melee tank. Once you have more spell slots, this can stack with Magic Vestment for even more AC goodness.

Mass Lesser Vigor gives fast healing 1 to yourself and anyone within 30 feet, which restores 1 HP per turn in combat and completely removes the need to heal between fights.

Recitation gives all of your allies +2 to attacks, AC, and Saving Throws, but they have to be there when you first cast the buff at the beginning of the day (no bonus to yourself)

Divine Power gives you 7 temporary HP, increases your strength by 6 and makes your Base Attack 7/2. In effect, your melee attacks become 10/5 plus any bonuses from the weapon, and you hit harder.

This build is just starting to come into its own, and with another 3 levels will truly become a powerhouse.
