    The goal of the deck is to storm off with Sensei's Divining Top and Helm of Awakening or with Dramatic Reversal and Isorchron Scepter to either bolt the table with Aetherflux Reservoir (or even actual Bolt) or Mill everyone with Pyxis of Pandemonium. The deck plays heavy control to make up for my personal lack of fast mana.

    The main way to get our combo is to resolve proteus staff and stack the deck in the following way (top > bottom)
    Gitaxian Probe > any counterspell you have the mana for > Helm of Awakening > Lotus Petal > Sol Ring > Desperate Ritual > Seething Song > all the 2-drop mana-rocks > Sensei's > Aetherflux. Since we are the first to get priority after Proteus's effect resolves, we can start by casting probe for free to draw the counterspell to provide protection for the rest of the combo. With an extra {W} available, we can even put a Silence before the card we actually want to draw and hold priority on Probe to cast it.

    If aetherflux is no longer an option, we can put Dramatic Reversal after top, then cast Isochron Scepter and Pyxis to win.

    There is a possible Twisterloop if we have Helm, Top, and Dramatic Scepter with Echo of Eons and Narset's Reversal: Make Infinite mana, cast Lightning Bolt, cast Echo, return it to hand with Narset's (so it doesn't go to the graveyard), then draw the deck until Bolt, Reversal and Echo are back in hand. Repeat until you've won.

    Thought Lash is a less safe way to get to the combo, amounting to Tainted Pact with Elsha in in play, but it gets the job done if you need to find Top or Helm.

    Plans for the future are to upgrade the quality of my counterspells and wheels, include fetch lands, acquire faster mana, and add Cursed Totem.
