The CON hit isn't too awful, and you might even swap some feats for Greater Con to make up for it. Otherwise, the MOST you lose is 60 points, and from everything I hear, this build isn't supposed to get hurt that bad anyway. And yes, it does seem the SR would help it. I didn't realize about the 1 AB and AC - I had figured that being reduced to small would net you these. Apparently not. It's unfortunate that you're stuck w/ small stature losses (equipment you can use) but not get the +1 AB and AC benefits.
Edit: Just realized that Pixie also gets Dodge for free, so that's one more "free" feat to maybe take 1 Greater Con. So you'd just have to find one more. If you don't go with exotic weapons, it seems feasible.
Also, pixie gets to walk on sand, freeing up one ring slot in some areas. Doesn't seem like a terrible alternative to the others already listed. Maybe I'll suggest it to her.

I take back what I said earlier about Con. I've recently altered the gear on my halfling death to max con and have found that though it doesn't often make a difference in the desert or the other lower level runs, in the higher areas like beholders it makes a big difference. With maxed con, I can now stand in the middle of one of the rooms there alone with 2 devotees and survive where as before I was dying in every room.
I didn't notice it anywhere while glancing through here, so I was just wondering if there would be a major problem with doing this build with a pixie. My wife recently got that subrace, and is looking for builds to try with it. I thought this would be an awfully good one for her (she hates dying, and likes disarming traps and opening locks . Any reason not to do this with pixie?
If you want a pixie build I can post my bard pixie, pretty much my fav character. Funky
If you wanted to do that when you get back Funky, that would be great! I think she would enjoy that character (and I would too if I get a Pixie subby anytime soon . I was planning on making one anyway, but waiting for Siren. If Pixie is better, I can do that, since I don't have either yet.
I'd be interested in your pixie bard build too Funky I've become very aware of how much bards rule recently and I'm itching to make one. Assuming yours is a dexer bard build(?), I'd be interested to see a successful caster bard build too (if anyone's made one).. Curious as to how it'd be built.
Self conceal 5, epic dodge, great dex 10 epic focus and epic prowess all fit. You can also get imp expertise in this build. Use halfling race for the dex, and kukris as your weapon. IOf course you miss out on the wm bonuses but it is very costly in feats....
