|Casting Time:||1 reaction, which you take when you see a creature within 60 feet of you casting a spell|
|Casters:||Sorcerer, Warlock, Wizard|
Using a cutting gesture, you disrupt your target's spell matrix to end their attempted spellcasting.
You attempt to interrupt a creature in the process of casting a spell that requires an action to cast. Make an ability check with proficiency using your spellcasting ability modifier against a DC equal to 5 + the caster's Proficiency bonus + the caster's spellcasting ability modifier + twice the spell's slot level.
On a success, the creature's spell fails and has no effect; however, if the spellcaster cast the original spell using a spell slot, they can immediately spend a bonus action harnessing the leftover energy to cast a cantrip on the same turn.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, increase your ability check by two for each slot level above 3rd.
