Spell Effects: Lesser Destroy Magic

Greater Effects: 0 (x1)
This counterspell is cast as a missile spell. The caster must succeed on a ranged attack against the spell they are trying to counter before it takes effect. If it's a missile spell in flight, they must hit the missile, otherwise they must hit the caster before the spell is finished. In exchange for these limitations, the caster is exempt from requiring a range on the spell and the meta magic cost for this spell is divided by three. This means that they need only pay 1/3 the energy cost of the spell they seek to counter.
Typical Casting: Lesser Destroy Magic (5) + Meta-Magic 150 (50) 55 energy (55x1).
