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.
There's a wand of wall building in both Umoria and PCB. It's balanced in PCB by being so rare that I've never actually seen one. There's also ?forest creation which you rarely collect enough of to justify the slot.
