Baleful Polymorph
5th-level Transmutation
Casting time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Variable


With a snap of your fingers, a billowing cloud of smoke surrounds your target. When the smoke clears, the target is transformed into a beast of challenge rating 1 or lower. The target's game statistics other than mental ability scores, hit points, alignment and personality are replaced by those of the new form.

The target is allowed a Constitution saving throw to resist the transformation. After 1 minute, the target receives an additional Constitution saving throw. If it succeeds, it reverts to its normal form; if it fails, it remains an animal. The target can make an additional saving throw after the first hour, the first day and the first month. If all saving throws result in failure, the spell becomes permanent and the target's mental ability scores are replaced by those of a typical member of its species.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 6th or higher, <a number of saving throws starting from the final one equal to the slot level minus five are automatic failures. Therefore, if you cast this spell with a 9th level spell slot, the target is permanently transformed if it fails the first saving throw.>
