Convoluted? lol. That's hilarious. How is this convoluted?:I
Bruh. How is it not convoluted? Enemy Current HP > X. First of all, it's not even clear if we'll have the enemy hp visible to us at all difficulty levels. Secondly, it depends on the enemy. If a dragon has 15 hp remaining, I'd spent my spell slot for Smite, if it's a goblin with those same 15 hp, I would not. It has to be a VERY complicated and convoluted if-else system to be at least somehow close to what actual reactions can provide. Or let's take Counterspell. You expect a new player (or any player for that matter) to go through 400+ spells to tune the reaction? And what if in some cases I would want to counter Shield and not in others? Reload the combat and tune the preaction beforehand? Nah.

It can't be a huge improvement because they are functionally the same thing just with different graphical coating.
