4th-level necromancy (sorcerer, warlock, wizard)

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Touch

Components: V, S, M (tarnished coin from a ghost dragon’s lair)

A ghostly draconic maw superimposes your face when you cast this spell. For the duration, you can use your action to make a melee spell attack against a target within 5 feet. On a hit, the target takes 2d10 piercing damage and must make a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the creature takes 4d8 necrotic damage. On a successful save, the creature takes half as much damage.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, the necrotic damage increases by 1d8 for each slot above 4th.
