This class is awesome! Every thing in it is balanced and fair, as it takes the best parts of Eldritch Knight and replaces the bad with competent abilities. Good casters, good martial fighters, but never to the point of absurdity. The most powerful classes do sacrifice in areas abilities that the other classes they mimic might have.
The Shadow Court is the best example of this. They're powerful monk-variation Magus's and while very strong, capable of doing their own flurry of blows it costs them spell slots which the Magus is normally low on. I love this class and actually intend on playing it. Thank you Ben for making this, big fan of this work right here.
