Sounds like all the pieces are in place to stop backing up save files. Mostly it's a matter of a modest amount of planning ahead, and a sufficient degree of cowardice. And most importantly, somehow avoiding death to boredom.
Your description of the fight is pretty typical. Yeah, you have to phase away a lot--both to heal, and to avoid summons. And yeah, it takes a lot of melee. As Derakon mentioned, ranged combat is a lot easier, but is certainly less satisfying.

There came a point where I stopped force quitting after dying. The first time I "won" the game I cheated and it felt ... well, cheap! Angband is a good tool for practicing non-attachment hah.
