Prophet of Distortion Discussion

@onerazorsharp: Your suggestions and tips are greatly welcome!
I think that Prismite / Gemstone Array are just bad cards on their own and won't do anything without infinite mana. Otherwise I think your recommendation of Staff of Domination could be slot into the deck easily but it's just an infinite mana outlet that we don't really need. We already have some outlets like Walking Ballista or Finale of Devastation. These are sufficient.
I decided against Vigean Graftmage + Incubation Druid. Mainly i think that you have to tutor for both combo pieces whereas the other combos most times only need one tutor spell. Also you have to consider that Vigean Graftmage is a dead card outside that specific combo setup and playing mostly dead cards is what has to be minimized.
In my current testing list I added Prophet of Distortion and I think it could be a great addition to the list.

2) With Basalt Monolith - what are your outlets for infinite colorless? I noticed right off the bat that you aren't running Staff of Domination or something like Prismite / Gemstone Array- might be worth considering. Walking Ballista & Thrasios, Triton Hero are in my setup as well, but as soon as Basalt Monolith hits the table with Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy you're going to need to make use of the colorless. I suppose it would depend on your Meta and how much interaction takes place, but in my playgroup it's a very short lived combo without an outlet immediately available.

I like the Prismite idea. Will keep it for another deck.

No. From Gatherer:
Training Grounds won’t affect the part of an activation cost represented by colored mana symbols or snow mana symbols. It also won’t affect nonmana parts of an activation cost, if there are any. (2010-06-15)
While this Gatherer entry was written when was not part of the game, it still represents a cost to be paid and it is not generic mana, which is the only type of mana affected by Training Grounds.
TLDR Colorness mana is not the same as generic mana.

For creatures with colorless mana symbols in their activation costs like Eldrazi Displacer or Prophet of Distortion can the reduction in cost from Training Grounds be used to "pay" for the colorless mana symbol? Thanks

When you get to protean hulk, vannifar remains tapped, how do you untap her deterministically in your chain? For example in the trophy lines she gets untapped by a hasted fatestitcher once for 4-5 then reanimated to pod the 5 into great oak, which untaps her for 6 to hulk, and the unearthed fatestitcher as well. Also the sage of hours combo is pretty shitty my man, since you are running 6 entirely dead cards that have no utility outside of the combo and one of them isn't even walking ballista. Why not grand architect pili pala walking ballista Rootwater Diver / Prophet of Distortion after the trophy mage line? Those cards are way less bad and are vannifars unique protean stack. Just my 2 cents.
