One of my player is playing a magus who really likes using Wands of Magic Missile. I was thinking of making a Magus Arcana that essentially copies the Staff-like Wand Arcane Discovery.
Would just copying the details and prerequisites, changing the wizard level into magus level, be a good idea or does it need changes?
Note: The player wouldn't abuse this, if there is a way to. And if he does, it wouldn't be an issue for me to restrict the ability.
I believe that there is a magus arcana that specifically does that. It is called Wand Mastery.http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/base-classes/magus/magus-arcana/paizo-magus -arcana/wand-mastery-su
Linkified. This only does part of the job -- it doesn't get you Magus level to replace the wand's caster level, which is what Staff-Like Wand does, but the latter seems to be Wizard-only. Having a Magus Arcana that does the same thing, with Wand Mastery as a prerequisite instead of Craft Staff, would be a reasonable house rule.
One way to get Staff-Like Wand as a Magus without using house rules would be to go Magus VMC Wizard, and then choose Staff-Like Wand as your Arcane Discovery; however, having to spend half your character feats on VMC Wizard and then another feat on Craft Staff is really harsh, and it takes forever to get online (even though you can get good stuff out of VMC Wizard before that point).
