Are you going for 15 runes, or just a win? I'd say Slime would be easiest assuming you have rCorr. Crypt is probably the next easiest.

V:5 is particularly dangerous with low MR since being marked is seriously dangerous down there.

There's really no need for a spellcaster-specific deity to have active abilities that the player is expected to regularly use.
