This is sort of what action points are for. Marasmusine (talk) 03:14, 27 April 2013 (MDT)

In some elements yes, but this is a much more broad spectrum; it effects yourself, a triggering ally, or a triggering enemy. It is an improved version of the Second Chance Encounter power of a Halfling, but with a reasonable drawback. You might save your friend by giving them a second chance at their saving throw, only to effectively forfeit your next attack or attempt to do anything else.
Based on the Rules Compendium's text regarding Action Points on page 235, "The list that follows isn't exhaustive; a creature can try to do anything imaginable in the game world." I can see where you're coming from, but this is more of a "twist fate" power than an action point effect. It was an interesting mechanic and concept that struck me after reading over Elven Accuracy and Second Chance racial powers and wondering as to why I've never seen anything like this in 4e.
