Shiny Hexblade! --Help with ED!

So I've been playing with this Hexblade, and trying to emphasise the radiant angle as much as possible, and the incisive dagger is thrown in to optimise ethereal sidestep. But I can't for the life of me decide on an ED. Thoughts? Any other comments on the build would be welcome as well

I'm going to assume you meant to type the 22 into Int as a Star Pact Hexblade?

With that said, Radiant One is a rather nice ED in the same Dragon article as Student of Caiphon.  Fits perfect thematically and rather strong to boot (though I wish it had a stat boost).

+Int fire/radiant damage whenever you have CA, the revive effect is nice, the L30 features gives you an extra full turn 1/day, and the daily utility is god mode

Sage of Ages from Arcane Power is also a nice ED, but isn't very shiny.  It's still very strong for an Int-based character with high Arcana

Edit:  Also I see you have Eladrin chainmail.  That alone will boost Ethereal Sidestep to the 3 needed for Shadow Walk.  Unless you wanted a reeeeeeally big teleport speed, you can safely trade out Incisive for something more offensive (Subtle Dagger for example).  You can also get Superior Implement Training with daggers 
Thanks! And Yeah. THat was supposed to be in Int. Started out at Fey Pact. Oops.
