    You can try

    1. whirlwind baba with 10 pts berserk (use berserk in CS)
    2. frenzy baba with 10 pts double throw (use throw in CS)

    There. Total pwnage and no problems with iron maiden.

    if baal is a must, i guess a hammerdin would be the best choice.

    hydbrid necro - there is nothing in the game that can stop them, except more than 1 player.

    ::edit:: that is bone spirit/spear hybrid, not poison.
    -also, mf gear (in general)

    Halrequin Crest(shako)
    skullder's ire (or enigma if you can)
    Goldwrap
    wartravs
    Chanceguards
    2xnagel rings
    Ali baba (2x for barb)
    Rhyme shield (or milbrega's orb)
    Amulet - magic MF amulet
    Inventory: Gheed's and a whole bunch of +7 mf sc's.

    Take from or add to as you like. Less mf usually means faster killing, and anything over 350 hits a really high diminishing return on effectiveness.

    Read the sticked giudes for a start - MF is all how much you stack without slowing the kill speed Barbs can kill just a bit slower and hork bodys for the most chances to find (including things MF or GF does not effect) but if you are intent on the boss kill Sorcs do it fast with high mf best.
    Necros can do it cheap and slower.
    Zon's can specilize in pit's etc.
    Pals can run ubers (though other can as well if they know how - even a melee sorc build for example)

    meteorbs are cool and cheap. light sorcs are way cooler and way more expensive. summon necros are nice and the most comfortable playing experience. Either three will get frustrating in CS if their merc/minions get IM. Meteorb the least of course .

    As far as versatility goes a necro with maxed Poison Nova and synergies, skeleton summons and 1pt CE can run anywhere anytime as long as it's a ONE PLAYER game. As more players enter his killing power falls dramatically.

    Just make sure you load your merc up with CB to take down bosses.

    As for a more detailed build with gear, tactics etc, go to the necro forum and expend a little energy and effort locating the build guides thread. Shouldn't be too much of a challenge.

    Re: What is the best mfer

    I suggest reading my MF guide first. First you need to know which items do you MF for.
    For example there is no point in running Diablo. He and Seal superuniques can't drop TC87 items. Baal himself can drop TC87 with low odds. So for TC87 uniques, it's better to run lvl 85 areas like Pits or Tunnels. For more common uniques, Mephisto is way to go. For jewelry, bugged Andariel is here.

    Anyways the most versatile MFer is Hammerdin with an Enigma. There are more specialized builds which can do better for some MF targets (for example you can keep your Blizzard sorc for Andy/Meph and make a lightning sorc for Baal runs), but Enigmadins do very well everywhere.

    Unless you don't care about the TC87 items and are just after higher odds of still-decent uniques/other items. Most TC87 areas don't offer good drop rates, they offer low chances of items that can't be found elsewhere.
