If you just want to play it as a caster the list not very exciting.
Spells don't scale well and high level list is kind of meh
In a nutshell Clerics have the spell list of a martial. They get the stuff a good GM would have to drop scrolls or potions of if you weren't there and they have mostly selfish combat buffs.
It's almost impossible to make a caster cleric that isn't summon focused, but it's easy to make a cleric that does a fighter's job and not all that hard to do the basic front line two hander shtick better than the fighter. (having a strong will save covers a multitude of sins)
The wizard is the other way around. It's easy to be a caster but very hard to build for combat and requires carrying a badly written legacy prestige class.
The druid has a casting list on a natively combat capable chassis. With the advent of dazing spell the druid's DoT blasting focus turns into powerful control and lockdown capability. It's not the wizard list, but it's workable.
