You are mean.

There's a reason why the only LOS obstruction options in Vanilla are Earthquake (random and low-density), Destruction (not very useful for actual fights outside of Morgoth), and Create Doors (fragile). Being able to obstruct LOS at will is a powerful ability; in my experience it becomes character-defining as soon as it's available.

That's not to say that it's impossible to balance, but my inclination would be to limit it to, say, a scroll or very-hard-to-recharge wand.
