You attempt to interrupt a creature in the process of casting a spell, causing the magic to become unstable. If the creature is casting a spell of 4th level or lower, its spell fails and has no effect, then you roll on the table below to determine a secondary effect. If it is casting a spell of 5th level or higher, make an ability check using your spellcasting ability. The DC equals 10 + the spell’s level.

On a success, the creature’s spell fails and has no effect, then you roll on the table below to determine a secondary effect. On a failure the spell is cast successfully; its damage is doubled if it is a spell that deals damage, and any saving throw made to resist it is made at disadvantage if it requires a saving throw.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, the interrupted spell has no effect if its level is less than or equal to the level of the spell slot you used.
