Great Magus feat. Please Please Please give some form of it to wizards!

For those who haven't read it -

Standby Spell - Feat 8 -
One spell is your favored combat technique, and you’ve practiced it enough that you no longer need to prepare it to cast it. Choose a spell in your spellbook that you could use with Striking Spell and that has a level no higher than the highest-level magus spell slot you have. You can Cast this Spell without having it prepared ahead of time by expending a spell slot of a sufficient level to cast the spell.
You can change this spell when you add new spells to your spellbook or by studying your spellbook for 1 hour per level of the newly chosen spell.

Some version of this with wizard would be awesome. I would suggest lowering the level (4 maybe, same as arcane evolution) and getting rid of the quick change in the morning, might be too good on wizard. But maybe give you a standby spells at different levels.

Off the cuff, I suggest something like this

Mastered Spells - Feat 4
You have mastered a spell sufficiently that, that you no longer need to prepare it to cast it. Choose a spell in your that has a level no higher than the highest-level wizard spell slot you have. You can Cast this Spell without having it prepared ahead of time by expending a spell slot of a sufficient level to cast the spell. You may change this spell when you gain a level, or through a week of retraining. You gain an additional mastered spell at lvl 10, and 16. Each mastered spell must have a different minimum level to cast.
