What are good options for a frontline melee with very limited source material?

I recently entered a Planescape campaign with a very rules heavy DM. I rolled stats in order, and now I have to make a character. As long as it stays within these sourcebooks and is neither a druid nor a full cleric (which my party already has) I’m open to options. Here’s the situation:

  • We are currently level 13, no LA buyoff possible.

  • I have 17 str, 15 Dex, 13 Con, 15 Int 15 Wis and 13 Cha.

  • I want to fill the role of a tank/melee combat controller. (I was considering maybe a trip oriented build?)

I have these options available:

  • PHB I
  • DMG I
  • MM I
  • Book of Exalted Deeds
  • Planar Guidebook
  • Tome of Magic
  • Guidebook to the Planetouched
