@wylie72 I have to use it and test it. Very interesting card. I really want to see what kind of things can happen with it in this deck. Especially with the sac fodder.

@AntiRivet no not a bully. Who ever plays this deck is the bully.

@Mythos242 solid suggestions. I like the Proteus Staff suggestion and comparing it to Jalira, Master Polymorphist I don't know why I never saw that comparison befor. Gonna have to try that out.

What i can suggest to implement into your deck is Conqueror's buffs your cmd to steal bigger creatures and gives a bit of protection during your turn !Also Proteus Staff is a 2nd Jalira, Master Polymorphist.

Valius: I would totally add Sissay if not for my one creature only Proteus Staff combo.

With regards to your second question, the ability of Proteus Staff has to fully resolve, allowing you to fully arrange your library, before you get a chance to put Temur Ascendancy's trigger onto the stack. You'll get to choose what the top card of your library is before you draw.

1) Yes. When a card leaves the battlefield and re-enters it, it's a new object with no memory of its previous existence. You will be able to, assuming you get five more counters on him, activate Ramos' ability again.

2) I'm not 100% sure about this, but I would say that you do get to draw a card. Proteus Staff just reveals cards from the top of your library, unlike Cascade abilities such as Shardless Agent's, which exiles the cards before putting them back on the bottom.

I am looking at putting together an EDH deck with Ramos, Dragon Engine as the general but no other creatures in the deck and I had a couple of questions.

1) If I remove five counters from Ramos, Dragon Engine for the ten mana and then use Proteus Staff to put Ramos, Dragon Engine on the bottom of my library it should return to play and I should be able to order my deck. If I get five counters on Ramos, Dragon Engine after it re-enters the battle field could I remove those counters for ten more mana?

2) If I have a card such as Temur Ascendancy in play when I activate Proteus Staff to order my library would I get to draw a card when Ramos, Dragon Engine returns to play or would I not have a library at that time because I just revealed them all after I put Ramos, Dragon Engine on the bottom of my library?

Makes sense. So it's all the mechanics. In that case, it's really up to how you want to go about recursion. There are many options that drop creatures directly into play like Strands of Night, or something like Phyrexian Reclamation that are cheap, but only go to your hand. Victimize could work well since you're generating tokens, same with Proteus Staff which can work if you don't mind the randomness.

I mean, Proteus Staff lets you stack your deck if you do it to a manland?

But no, not really, nothing checks your deck or hand and few things check your graveyard.
