Control Sand (Su): May telepathically control 10 lb/Sandbinder level of sand.The control has a distance of 25 feet/Sandbinder lvl.

AC Bonus: When something strikes at a Sandbinder, sands itself moves in the way of the attack, trying to stop it or minimizing the damages. The sands grant a AC bonus depending on the level (as seen above). Additionally a Sandbinder who takes a total defense action adds his intelligence modifier to his AC. The Sandbinder keeps this bonus even if flat-footed.

Sand Spears (Sp): Like a Warlock's Eldritch blast. Deals piercing damage and is not subject to spell resistance.

Sand Incantations (Sp): A Sandbinder do not prepare spells. He instead uses the power of the desert God to manipulate sand and achieve his ends. To use any incantation the Sandbinder need sands (they need to transport their own). This Sandbinder ability is treated like a spell and thus can be ruined and provokes attack of opportunity. The Sandbinder can use any of his incantations at will. If he incants defensively, he must succeed at a Concentration check.

Desert Knowledge (Ex): +8 on Knowledge (Geography) and survival in desert.

Magic Sands (Su): At level 4, a Sandbinder is able to create his own sands through magical means. He may create a total of sand equal to (Sandbinder level x 10 lb).

Damage Resistance (Ex): At level 3, the sands become so effective that it reduces the damage from the impact of non-magical weapons.

Each 4 level thereafter the resistance increase by 1.

Energy Resistance (Fire and Cold) (Ex): At level 5 the Sandbinder gains an energy resistance 7 to both cold and fire.

At level 20 this resistance upgrades to 14.

Sand God Apotheosis: At level 20 the Sandbinder is the true lord and master of sand, his resistance changes from Magic to Epic. His sand nature also grants him a regeneration bonus 1 (stackable). You can now control 10x your Intelligence modifier in sand + the other bonus.
