With the Advent of the ACG, the magus is able to take swashbuckler deeds as arcana, powered by his arcane pool. The prereq is an arcana that gives a preset list of useful deeds. After that, each arcana invested allows any 1 deed. The only restriction is meeting the level requirement for the deed.
- Precise Strike: add magus level as precision damage while using a one-handed piercing melee weapon and have at least 1 point in arcane pool. (Dervish Dance allows scimitar to qualify.) (3rd level)
- Evasive: gain evasion + uncanny dodge as long as you have at least 1 point in arcane pool (11th level)
- Deadly Stab: save or die vs critical hit. DC 10 + 1/2 level + Dex mod. Costs 1 arcane (19th level)
Plenty of other abilities, but I thought these were noteworthy. The first two since they cost neither actions nor arcane pool expenditure.
Everything we are reading about this book is ridiculous. I'm just going to have to ban the whole book at this point.
