I am finishing up wizard to play in a paragon level game and i was wonder if i was better off using a githyanki silver weapon with a venom whetstone (to combine mindfire penalties with persistent poison/spell focus) or a mordant weapon. The first option is looking forward to getting prismatic spray at level 25 but the second one is cheaper, and more flavorful, since the Phiarlan house is symbolized by a hydra.

Other suggestions are also welcome.

(Oh we roll for our stats in our game, as per the dm's insistence that its organic that way; despite us saying that point buy is fairer. He decided that when all of our characters got 18 12 12 12 10 8 arrays.)
