MA Final Punch DPS

Been thinking about an Iron Fist themed-character, and Final Punch looks like a good signature move for that. Here's the build:

Final Punch DPS - Freeform (Melee Damage)
v3.42:34

Super Stats
Level 6: Strength (Primary)
Level 10: Dexterity (Secondary)
Level 15: Recovery (Secondary)

Level 9: Relentless (Str: 5, Rec: 5)
Level 12: Impresario (Dex: 5, Rec: 5)
Level 15: Physical Conditioning (Str: 5, Con: 5)
Level 18: Acrobat (Dex: 5, Con: 5)
Level 21: Quick Recovery (Con: 5, Rec: 5)

Powers
Level 1: Vicious Strikes
Level 1: Chi Manipulation
Level 6: Parry (Rank 2, Rank 3)
Level 8: Enrage
Level 11: Intensity

Strength: Swole (3/3)

Strength: Overpower (2/3)
Vindicator: Aggressive Stance (2/2)
Vindicator: Merciless (3/3)

Vindicator: Mass Destruction (2/3)
Brawler: The Glory of Battle (1/3)
Brawler: Penetrating Strikes (2/2)
Brawler: Ruthless (2/2)
Brawler: Finishing Blow (3/3)
Brawler: Offensive Expertise (2/2)
Mastery: Strength Mastery (1/1)

Since Final Punch removes my Enraged stacks, I would like to know if it's worth using it.
@flowcyto any adjustments you would do? I could pick Inexorable Tides to quickly refresh Demolish, but I find Dragon Kick pretty useful in Alerts and solo missions like Death Rattle.

Thanks in advance :)

    Happy New Year, all 8)

    To go over the build quickly: Final Punch isn't really worth it in long fights due to the stack expiry, but you can still use it as advertised- a way to finish off tougher enemies (and have fun sending trash flying to their deaths). Not having your toggle/form fully stacked for trash isn't that important, imo, as long as you have them for the boss fights.

    Since it's using Enrage, I may just make all your basic attacks knock, and use Pulverizer, just to have an easier time w/ it.

    Warden: Upper Hand (2/3)
    Warden: The Best Defense (3/3)
    Mastery: Strength Mastery (1/1)

    I gave you Defense Combo just as a basic, cheap attack for trash that still works w/ Enrage (and for playing defensively w/ its dmg shield). DU can be your main single-target attack, w/ Demolish to apply its debuff and Inex Tides to refresh that debuff (and also to provide some pbAoE). Although the build has some Might, it also has some MA in there for the theme. Gears mostly for Str, w/ some Con and Rec.
