I think it would greatly reduce the viability of Wizards as a player character class."
I think it takes much more than that to reduce that particular viability :)
If Boris was the PC, I'd only be operating it to make the game more
enjoyable - he'd normally be with his gang of warrior-thugs and it would
just be a rare time when the Big B didn't steal their thunder.
If he was on his own, gamboling round the city, zapping people who wore
the wrong colour shirts, it would get boring if he always knew the
outcome. If his spell failed, he should quickly decide on Plan B before
Fang feeds his fingers to the fishes.
