It doesn't quite work out to +10. Yes, you have a high base Intelligence, but you lose DC boosts from class features, and you can't shapechange into a black ethergaunt to get more Intelligence. That sounds stupid, but that's a real thing that makes wizards stronger, and ethergaunts don't get to do it (and they're clearly playing at a level and tier where that is just the thing to do). See my post above. And sorry about the many edits; my thoughts were catching up to my typing.
