I don't use the staff, but I use Alteration and that spell is my favorite. However, I play a Mage/Assassin. No follower. No Destruction magic. No Conjuration. No Weapons No Armor
I play purely Illusion/Alteration/Sneak. (With a few other perk trees filled, of course)
No matter how strong your spells are, it's not easy to get kills if you're caught. It makes it extremely difficult and fun. You have to get creative to get kills, and sometimes even use the environment to make it happen. Such as using Telekinesis to drop those flaming pots on people.
Getting someone's attention and making them walk into a trap, or making them walk into the dangerous zone and manually triggering the trap yourself so you can get the kill. It's a hard way to play, but it's very rewarding, and often extremely funny.
... the Dark Brotherhood quest where you have to kill the woman at her own wedding while she is addressing her guest. There are a few ways to do this. Knife her from the back, drop a statue on her, or do it my way...
I paralyzed her and cast a Fury spell on her new husband. He immediately turned and beat his new wife to death while she was laying on the floor, stiff. It was really funny to see a woman regret her marriage so quickly.
Thank you, sir. I like picking ways to play that require me to think of fun, innovative ways to do things. Illusion, Alteration, and Sneak aren't the best ways to get easy kills, so I always have to be a little tricky with getting kills....

I love doing this, so much that I plan on getting Skyrim for my PC and making a montage of this. One thing I did was during the companions' early quests, when you turn into a vampire and take on the silver hand, I faced two enemies. What did I do to get advantage? I backed up and stepped forward onto the pressure plate to have a spiked wall slam both of them against the wall like slamming a fly swatter on an insect.
