Lupine Prototype is a card you build around, but NOT in the way of dumping your hand to turn it on. Trying to get hellbent just to turn a 5/5 for 2 is a freaking horrible idea, and so is trying to fit it into existing decks.
What this thing is, is a cheap enabler. For what? Stuff like Fling. Stuff like turning on Ferocious. Stuff like Greater Good. I'm not saying the cards I listed are optimal. But the point is this cards job is NOT to smack people in the face for 5. It's to be a degenerate combo piece.

I think the main issue is that Metalworker is just going to be faster. You can cheat him out much sooner than Prototype Portal. Not to mention, Prototype Portal is competing with Lodestone Golem, Phyrexian Metamorph, and Sculpting Steel.
Prototype Portal is definitely interesting, especially with moxen (Mox Opal being the strongest one). I think you would rather do something like cheat in low-cost, high-in-power-level artifacts that have serious downsides. Then, you get the triggers for whatever it is you're cheating out. For example, dumping out Phyrexian Dreadnought or Phyrexian Soulgorger copies and then sacrificing them to Altar of Dementia or Fling.

at Ghost7.. Hmm I don't really want to splash an other colour, although you are right Leyline of Sanctity can be a problem for my Fling-Combo..I'll test it a bit and then maybe splash white ;) Thx for your suggestion ;)

I haven't played this deck in a while and I miss it! I'm going to start giving it some love. alexander.rokicki, I think you're right about Commander's Sphere. I will pick another one up and throw it in here. As for Stomping Ground and Wooded Foothills, they are great dual lands. It's just their price tags that prevent me from picking them up.
Jellosea, Thanks for your suggestions. I like the look of Fling, Rush of Blood, Rage Reflection, Greater Good in here. Asceticism is also a great card but I find with this deck I don't really care if any one particular creature gets removed so long as I can keep casting new ones. I see your point regarding Lurking Predators only giving me a creature a little over 30% of the time. However, even when I don't get a creature, Lurking Predators still allows me to effectively scry every time an opponent casts a spell. That's still great value.

Thanks for the suggestions, SirFowler and joemick! SirFowler, I have found that the lifegain created by Brion Stoutarm already is usually more than enough - the bigger issue with Brion is usually finding creatures to Fling. By replacing one of those creature cards with a more lifegain oriented card, I worry about getting fodder to throw. Even if I gain double the life, what good is it if I have nothing to throw? As well, commander damage is truly a thorn in my side, and lifegain really cannot help with that. Thanks again. joemick, as strong as I think that Phyrexian Processor is, it just feels a little too slow and leaves me vulnerable to attack for that one turn where I have to sit on having low amounts of life - however, it is truly a strong ability that, if used properly, could devastate my opponents. Will playtest a bit and decide. Thanks!
