I was toying with replacing Staff spell with a CF (+3 or so would leave a Quarterstaff Staff at the same cost) representing being made of magically conductive materials.

To accommodate requiring a wizard to make his own Staff, this would only require a suitable Smith or Armory specialty, possibly with a technique (Staffworking, defaults to Armory-5 or Smith-5, benefits from Magery, and at an additional -5 for each of Low Mana and lacking Magery 0, impossible in No Mana Zones), rather than Staff spell's 11 prerequisites.
