The best possible "survivable" pvm sdi suit

    I've been debating a mage suit for my spellweaving mage. I don't want to be like some people and build a suit with the maximum amount of sdi but sacrifice resists and basically everything up to a mongbat can kill you.

    I Figured I'd come here for advice. Currently I have a lot of gold from selling my house and a few items I had so I can spend up to 400ish mil and I have about 200+ of every imbuing ingredient.

    These mods are a must:
    100 LRC
    40 LMC
    12+ MR
    +25 Intelligence
    2/6 Casting
    +20 Magery (Plan on carrying a mage weapon/wand)
    Resists: 70/70/70/50+/70

    These are mods I'd like to have:
    50-60+ spell damage increase
    20-25 hit point increase
    Enhance potions (likely won't be able to)

    This is going to be strictly a pvm character. Mage weapon is in case I get raided at spawns when I do them. I plan on switching to books when i'm not using the mage weapon and I can equip a shield.

    If anyone plays on lake superior I can pay you there for the help.

    Best I can do on short notice is:
    resists: 65/65/65/70/75
    100 LRC
    40 LMC
    20 int
    40 DCI (it's kind of a side effect)
    15 MR
    18 MI
    FC/FCR 2/6
    50 EP
    54 SDI
    ... no hit points, no magery (can sacrifice EP for magery, I believe).
    But that's with using a pendant of the magi, kasa of raj-in, kelp woven leggings, and rune beetle carapace. (protector of the battle mage is likely a better chest option), tangle, conjurer's garb, quiver of infinity (there's a robe with 1% LMC and MR1 too)
    Everything else I imbued (note, my calculator doesn't do weights, so I probably went over on the ring/brace).

    Losing the 5 SDI from the pendant, you could make up the resists and maybe add up to 15 hit points, but I'm not positive.
