A wizard creature is skilled in the ways of arcane magic, and its spellcasting ability is unmatched. Beyond casting damaging spells, a wizard creature can call upon mighty forces to serve the will of the creature and its allies. Select a wizard creature's arcane school when the template is added. A wizard creature's CR increases by 2 if the creature has 7 or more HD, and it increases by 3 if the creature has 13 or more HD.
