Weapon (greatsword), artifact (Requires attunement.)

Hama no Tsurugi is a legendary sword with +3 to attack and damage rolls. Belonging to a princess from a certain country, the princess had the power to nullify all magic, and this artifact made such ability even stronger. The sword could destroy any type of summoned being with one hit, it could also defend against magical effects (the princess used to rely on this power for defense before she mastered her own powers, but this isn't a perfect power) and it also could be used to attack at a long distance, so any summoned creature or object created by magic can be destroyed by this sword even at a distance. The sword is also known to be extremely deadly to casters since it's power destroys magic any being that uses magic suffer great damage from this blade when hit since it destroys the arcane energy inside the target.

Vorpal Sword When you attack a creature that has at least one head with this weapon and roll a 20 on the attack roll, you cut off one of the creature’s heads. The creature dies if it can’t survive without the lost head. A creature is immune to this effect if it is immune to slashing damage, doesn’t have or need a head, has legendary actions, or the GM decides that the creature is too big for its head to be cut off with this weapon. Such a creature instead takes an extra 6d8 slashing damage from the hit.

The Supreme Sword The Hama no Tsurugi deals 2d10 slashing damage, instead of the normal 2d6 from a greatsword.

Destroyer of Summoned Existence Whenever the blade comes in contact with a summoned item or creature, it must make a Constitution saving throw equal to 8 + the wielder's proficiency bonus + the wielder's strength modifier or be banished to their home plane. Items automatically fail the saving throw unless it is sentient or an artifact.

Nullify Magic When holding this sword the wielder may use their bonus action or reaction to enter a defensive position, any magical effect or spell targeting you, that you wish to, is nullified. This can nullify a number magical effects or spells equal to the wielder's wisdom modifier, and regains all lost uses after a long rest.

Mage Slayer When a creature capable of casting any spells or use any features that are considered magical is hit by the Hama no Tsurugi, it takes an additional 2d10 of force damage, and must make a Constitution saving throw against a DC of 20. On a failure it a loses 1 spell slot for every level it can cast. This effect lasts until the caster takes a long rest, regaining two spell slots of random levels after each rest.
