Hand of Devastation is simultaneously confusing, too good, and too weak. Might make it much lower level. Basic idea – roll twice the dice, pick the highest half for each die type. Felt pretty chaotically destructive to me, might knock it down to 1st level, since it just scales up

One thought on “UA Destruction and Darkness domains for clerics!”
Soul of darkness needs a bit of clarification and some kind of limit, but i love the subclass flavor
