The level 20 choice was a toss-up between constructs and aberrations, to me. There are a lot more constructs to kill, but there are more opportunities to get gear boosts against constructs (smiting, greater banes) and beholders really suuuuuck. Again, I went for most opponents (or, more accurately, will go for).
I seem to remember looking at my damage once and finding that "double favored" did not stack, but I don't remember what kind of critter I was fighting where that would have applied.
