Necromantic Strike (Su)

Prerequisite: Magus 15

Benefit: The magus can spend 1 point from her arcane pool as a swift action to imbue his weapon with a shimmering halo of black, necromantic energy, allowing her to disrupt her opponent’s life force. This energy is also baneful to undead creatures, allowing her to destroy them with a single, savage blow. She deals an extra 2d6 points of damage with her next attack as the necromantic energy weakens her living foe. In addition, her opponent must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + half her magus class level + her Intelligence modifier). On a failed save, the opponent takes 1d6 points of Strength and Constitution damage. This is a negative energy effect.

An undead creature struck by Necromatic Strike does not suffer the effects described above. Instead, it must make a Will save (DC 10 + half her magus class level + her Intelligence modifier) or suffer 10 points of damage per magus level she possesses a successful save deals 10d6 points of damage to the undead creature.
