Haste, Slow, Time Stop, such spells just begin to touch the powerful mastery over time. A Timeshifter focuses on time and its unstoppable flow, and finds ways to alter the course.
Becoming a Timeshifter
Timeshifters are casters who seek to control time and thus manipulate one of the basic primal forces which create existence. Many are obsessed with the concept of time travel, though few have succeeded. Spells which are considered to manipulate time are NerveskitterSpell Compendium, Sepia Snake Sigil, Haste, Slow, Permanency, Contingency, Temporal Stasis, Moment of Prescience, Foresight, HindsightSpell Compendium, and Time Stop.

All of the following are class features of the Timeshifter.
Spellcasting: At each level after first, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one spellcasting class before becoming a timeshifter, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
