Magus Arcana - Spell Blending (mage Armor, Touch of Gracelessness
You are skilled at attacking opponents that you cannot clearly perceive.
Blind fight
Benefit: In melee, every time you miss because of concealment (see Combat ), you can reroll your miss chance percentile roll one time to see if you actually hit.
An invisible attacker gets no advantages related to hitting you in melee. That is, you don't lose your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class , and the attacker doesn't get the usual +2 bonus for being invisible . The invisible attacker's bonuses do still apply for ranged attacks, however.
You do not need to make Acrobatics skill checks to move at full speed while blinded.
Normal: Regular attack roll modifiers for invisible attackers trying to hit you apply, and you lose your Dexterity bonus to AC . The speed reduction for darkness and poor visibility also applies.
Special: The Blind-Fight feat is of no use against a character who is the subject of a blink spell.

Spell Combat – full round action, all melee attacks (-2 penalty) and cast any magus spell. Can cast defensively on attack roles up to int bonus and add that bonus to concentration checks.
Spell Strike (Su) - At 2nd level, whenever a magus casts a spell with a range of “touch” from the magus spell list, he can deliver the spell through any weapon he is wielding as part of a melee attack. Instead of the free melee touch attack normally allowed to deliver the spell, a magus can make one free melee attack with his weapon (at his highest base attack bonus) as part of casting this spell. If successful, this melee attack deals its normal damage as well as the effects of the spell. If the magus makes this attack in concert with spell combat, this melee attack takes all the penalties accrued by spell combat melee attacks. This attack uses the weapon’s critical range (20, 19–20, or 18–20 and modified by the keen weapon property or similar effects), but the spell effect only deals ×2 damage on a successful critical hit, while the weapon damage uses its own critical modifier.
Spell Strike - Deliver spells via weapon

Arcane pool=5(1/2 magus level + 3 int)
>>>Weapon Enhance – 1 pt +Swift action = +1 enhancement bonus for one min
Spell Recall- Recall spell as free action by spending point = spell level

Quarter staff master - Can use Qstaff as one handed weapon to add 2X str modifier
