Mindcrafter is basically: You get an overpowered set of abilities that make it pretty easy to survive, but your damage sucks and you have to do tedious things forever to win.

Poscheng helped a bit by adding a final spell (psycho storm or something) -- older variants just had psycho spear, which does reliable but pretty low damage. (This may have been added in hengband, I'm not sure.)

I think it's good to use a low-xp-penalty race with mindcrafter so that you can get your whole spell list as quickly as possible.
