Always in search of a durable defender, I noticed the battlemind has an at-will that grants resistance (wis) till next turn. So... dwarf fighter|battlemind with brv, maxed con, and melee training can mark well, and punish with mindspike or a decent mba. As always, it doesn't really do better than the durability baseline: 18-18 brv fighter. You've got to abandon your fighter side, leaving you with a wasted encounter (translates into 2 wasted PP here) and a wasted fighter at-will. The dwarven BRV feat doesn't work, either. But in a long battle, spamming that at-will will make you hard to kill, you have good accuracy, and the wis-resist procs even on a miss (although a brv fighter using a vig attack procs (con) on a miss).
