Shield, Variant
1st-level abjuration
Casting Time: 1 reaction, which you take when you are hit by an attack or targeted by a magic missile spell
Range: Self
Components: V, S
Duration: Instantaneous
Casters: Sorcerer, Wizard

With an arcane word and a gesture, a shield of pure force appears in front of you.

An invisible barrier of magical force appears and protects you. Force the creature that hit you to reroll the attack, taking the second result. In addition, you are immune to the damage from the magic missile spell.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level, all attacks made against you until the end of the current turn are made at disadvantage. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level, the benefits of this spell are extended until the start of your next turn.


This spell was made to change the way shield works in keeping with the design ideology of 5th edition and maintain bounded accuracy. If this is too weak in your games, increase the duration of this spell to one round.
