Casting Time: 1 action
You speak aloud, demanding a boon from one of the darkest planes. You instantly replicate the effects of a spell of 1st level, or a cantrip. Each time you cast this spell, roll a d20. If the result is a 1, you are struck by an unholy force, and are reduced to 0 hit points and fail your first death saving throw immediately after the spell is cast.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level, you can replicate a spell of 2nd level or lower, and the threshold for being struck increases to a result of 1 or 2. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level, you can replicate a spell of 3nd level or lower, and the threshold for being struck increases to a result of 1, 2, or 3. This pattern continues until the spell is cast using a slot of 7th or higher level, where no additional effect is gained and the threshold is not increased.
