Proteus Staff Discussion

Wow, this is neat. I've been looking for a deck to abuse Proteus Staff , and this deck does that and more. This is an oddball deck for sure, and I love the various lines to victory.

The deck seems really, really well tuned. I'm having a bit of a hard time suggesting improvements. Have you considered Gitaxian Probe ? It basically just slims your deck down by one card, while also letting you know if one of your opponents do or do not have answers before you try going off. (Especially when casting the second Approach--checking the blue deck for counterspells ahead of time can be very helpful!)

I'm not sure which is better, actually, but what are your thoughts on Austere Command versus Cleansing Nova ? I'm not sure if one less mana (and becoming odd!) makes it better than the flexibility of Command.

Great deck!

I don't understand how Proteus Staff has any way to generate extra turns in the combo you have listed. Please explain?

  • If I activate the ability of Proteus Staff with a token creature, and there are no creatures in my library, do I:
  • Reveal all the cards in my library and then order them as I see fit?
  • Attempt to reveal cards that don't exist, thus making my turn unending?

There's no ruling on the gatherer, so I must ask it here.

I would cut trinket mage for Fabricate. Then the rest of your creatures are bombs, so you can include Polymorph and Proteus Staff :p

Sorry for spaming, but I really like messing around with Aminatou Another idea. I know your deck focus on blinking, but I think that top deck manipulation is worth consider too, even a little. A lot of creature with etb have high mana cost, so I added card like Cloudform and Primordial Mist so I can manifest some big creature like Emeria Shepherd or just make land I don't need into 2/2. Then you could transform this usless 2/2 into samothing good with Proteus Staff, what do you think?

mmlgamer and AgentJackjohn sorry for the late response, must have completely missed your comments when you posted them... we actually already made the swtich when the set came out, we just never updated our TappedOut decklist.

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is not only easier to cast in every situation, but if we can get an early attack without killing her then the warrior token is an excellent target for Proteus Staff later in the game when we start our combo.

She also makes our combo much easier to assemble since we previously needed at least 5 mana to combo because casting General Tazri was basically a necessity, whereas now we are capable of the combo with only 3 mana (we will still want more than 3 mana, but needing 2 less mana for a combo piece can give us our combo up to 2 turns earlier).
