Getting extra add ons when casting spells is something that I think feels really cool so I was bummed out when it doesn’t work for cantrips.
I actually like the four slot system to show that a magus *can* do normal wizard things if they had to but that’s not why they went to magic university.
I don’t mind that my murder wizard can only cast discern lies a few times a day but I feel like I should be able to cast something to the effect of mirror image or shocking grasp forever given a high enough level
That being said I was wondering if having feats that added to the list of spell effects a Magus could replicate short for a round whenever they cast any spell. Something like
MIRROR SHATTER- free action once a round-
When ever you cast a spell you some 1 image of yourself as per the spell mirror image. If the spell was from the illusion school add 2 images instead
This way a Magus could get a long list a abilities that they could customize over their career.
