    Have you considered Grim Monolith? Good ramp on its own, and produces infinite colorless with Rings of Brighthearth.


    Unless I read the card wrong, I think you are confusing Grim Monolith with Basalt Monolith which is already in the decklist.

    The most frustrating thing to me when playing against prophet is that it slows the game down to a crawl. The player with PoK will always have something to do every turn (mana sink, draw effect, flash in stuff). Provided that prophet is played in the right situation it will win the game for sure but it will take a couple of very boring turn where someone is decksturbating every turn. I agree that on its own it does not do a whole lot and dies easily, but it is the most frustrating card that I see the most often right now in any meta. I'd add Cyclonic Rift to this list because most of the time it is used as a "I hope to get back into this game so I rift" instead of rift to win. This card slows down games so much its almost unbearable.


    The PoK player taking forever sounds like more of an individual issue with that player and not a problem with the card itself. Long turns aren't a reason for banning either.

    On the bright side, it gives you more time to ponder the value of spot removal while they are playing cards.


    Long turns happen due to the player having PoK resolving many triggers. Any good player will have counter magic ready when resolving Pok, its not like you can just bolt it and be done with it. Often times you will need more than 2 cards to deal with it, and that is on the turn it lands, because on the following turns it is usually too late. The player might not be able to win right away but he should have the table locked down at that point.
