First, you need to tone down your expectations. There aren't any strikers that are ranged & melee and use weapons & spells and get boatloads of skills (correction: there aren't any that actually do decent damage).

Luckily for you there are more strikers than classes of any other role. Unluckily, once removed the arcane ones (including gishes like the hexblade), the stealthy kind mostly falls into the rougueish category.
