It's been a little while since I've run mega-zigs. Beyond level-9 attack spells, Necromutation, Makhleb, and silver javelins are what remains for the mega-zigs. I think the chaos-branded unarmed melee of panlords and eldritch tentacles had paralysis removed fairly recently, which was a big source of...

You're not very strong yet, with just a plain +1 arbalest. Leaving Trog is a bad idea. Train some Evocations for your magic. With 10 Armour skill, I think the plate mail is probably best.

You're going need to do more changes in that function. It is built for every effect to have a targeted component (e.g. bolt of draining, acid, OoD). You'll need to add logic to skip the targeted part if (card == CARD_PAIN) and (power_level == 2).
