Coven of the Servant is a witchblade coven of the Witchblade class.

The Coven of the Servant, a name chosen to mock the supernatural entities they "subjugate", is actually composed of many different smaller, individual covens, each stealing power from a different patron, much like the archaic Ur-Priests stole power from the gods. Little do they know, until it is too late, that their patrons know full well of their theft, and will try to force the Witchblade try to force them to serve them correctly - Or send warlocks to hunt them down if they refuse.

Mystic Arcanum

At 15th level, your patron bestows upon you a magical secret called an Arcanum. Choose one 6th-level spell from the Warlock spell list as this Arcanum. At 18th level, you choose a 7th-level Warlock spell as your second Arcanum.

You can cast your Arcanum spells once each, without expending any Blood Points. You regain all uses of your Arcanum spells at the end of a long rest. 

Servant's Champion

At 18th level, you learn an additional Cunning Trick or Metamagic Option of your choice, and you gain an additional use of your Patron's Gift, to a total of 3 uses. Finally, when you use Patron's Gift, until the end of your next turn, your Cunning Tricks cost no Blood Points.
