When I suggested the new piety system, I did mention that Wizards should get the same piety even though they spend less.
I haven't actually tested it yet though so I don't know whether it works that way.
Anyway, the thing about the -1 mana cost is that... well, Sorceror just gets a giant 5 MP boost and Blood Mage... well, for the purpose of burst damage it gets nothing so let's just stick with a Wizard vs Sorceror comparison.
You would need to cast a spell 5 times to break even with Sorceror's class feature. That's really not easy to do when casting Fireballs.
Hmm, I guess Helpmeh and Bysseps would be the best to take advantage of this but Wizard SORT of loses its 4 glyph slots bonus in this version. The class seems to have very bad equipment carrying ability.
Ironically it doesn't quite synergize with MA because MA hates it when you convert glyphs, while Wizards get extra mana for converting glyphs. They also rely on fireballs more vs Cydstepp or Warlord who doesn't care about the Magic Resistance increase from MA boon.
