I loved the Duskblade when I played it.
I suggest strength based over dexterity based
It is very feasible to just go straight classed but it is also with taking a look at multi classing with a level of war blade from book of nine swords and then entering the prestige class Jade Phoenix Mage. Advise you take at least 4 levels of DB first so you can jump into second level maneuvers right away Sith the way other classes act as half class levels for maneuver prerequisites. Getting a second level spell at DB 5 is also a great power up if you don't male level 5 when you start warblade. I suggest DB 6 and WB 1 before JPM at level 8.
Look forward to coming back to read and write more comments about the DB.
