Proteus Staff


, : Put target creature on the bottom of its owner's library. That creature's controller reveals cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. The player puts that card into play and the rest on the bottom of his or her library in any order. Play this ability only any time you could play a sorcery.

Portent wow. Own it. Completely overlooked it. The slow cantrip is some neat tech for this list.

Artificer's Assistant you are right. I threw it in for the cheap scrying but Proteus Staff is spicy.

Cryptic Command for obvious reasons I'm avoiding counter magic but this is a powerful swiss army knife. Good eye!

Archmage Ascension seen this in a few of your lists. Your pet card. Hard to argue with instead of drawing a card Demonic Tutor it's just without a proliferate strategy to add counters it's a big requirement to meet.

Ward of Bones this is one of my pet card. Works best in planeswalker/instant/sorcery heavy strategies.

Dispersing Orb You are determined to not play with creatures haha I'm going to seriously consider this if I end up cutting Hullbreaker Horror and Tidespout Tyrant but the cantrip removal they grant is too powerful. Show and Tell fodder in absence of Blightsteel Colossus. Awesome suggestion.

I think you can very easily cut Artificer's Assistant. You might could replace Master Transmuter with Proteus Staff

I have thought of some input, but it changes your deck drastically and will cost a little bit of money. Consider adding blue, dropping green completely. Focus on making your tokens and controlling the board early. Play Proteus Staff and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Its a bit glass canony but if it works, youll win. Just somethin to think about. This strategy would also work with Polymorph but again, emrakul HAS to be the only creature in the deck.

Strionic Resonator doubles Narset's attack trigger allowing you to exile the top 8 cards.

Aqueous Form grants unblockable and lets you dig 5 deep with Narset.

Go truly creatureless and drop Clever Impersonator for Proteus Staff. This will quite literally allow you to stack your ENTIRE deck in the order you want it.

You could try Proteus Staff to find really powerful creatures to replace Drakes. You'd probably want something spicier than Baral, I'm trying out Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur in a cEDH Talrand deck with Staff to cheat it out. I also like Sphinx of the Second Sun, which can give you an untap to hold up mana for instant speed use while still allowing full value at sorcery speed. If you only use a couple creatures (or even 1), Proteus Staff turns into a tutor, since you can reorder your deck with it by sacrificing a Drake.

Since you aren't running a single creature, Proteus Staff will quite literally let you stack your entire deck in the order you choose.

Replace Fervor with Need for Speed and/or Mass Hysteria. Ashling's Prerogative is another option (I ran all 3 and Hall of the Bandit Lord)

Aqueous Form/Spirit Mantle are great to make Narset evasive and in the case of Aqueous, lets you dig 5 deep with Narset.

Long-Term Plans, Mystical Tutor, Scroll Rack, and Brainstorm are all worth it for the ability to manipulate your topdeck for Narset.

I'd also suggest replacing Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, and Chromatic Lantern. A good rule of thumb in Narset is 2 drop or less mana rocks (3 drop is ok if it adds more than 1 mana like Basalt Monolith, Coalition Relic, or Worn Powerstone). I'd personally recommend Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Conviction, and Talisman of Progress.
