I had an idea for an antimage enemy

Luth'sokir, elvish for Spelldrinker, are undead souls bent on destruction of the arcane. When a warrior is unceremoniously destroyed or unfairly bested by magics and spends its dying breath cursing the caster, there is a chance of that soul returning as a Spelldrinker. Spelldrinkers are not only inured to magic but actively absorb magic in its proximity, converting the arcane power into undead vitality. These wraith-like creatures have an innate sense of spellcasting ability and will actively ignore more martial combatants to pursue spellcasters, relying on their spectral nature to shrug off mundane sword blows. The area around a Luth'sokir acts as an antimagic zone, not only negating spells but also the effects of magic items and equipment.

Traits
>Magic Resistance
>Antimagic Aura 10 ft. radius
>Spell Siphon: if a spell is casted within the Spelldrinker's antimagic aura, the spell fades and the Spelldrinker gains a number of hit die equal to the level of spell casted as temporary health
>Maybe some attack that drains spell slots, idk haven't figured that one out yet

Oh yeah I'm aware tigers roar, IIRC all big cats do and in fact they can't purr because of the shape of their vocal chords. What I'm saying that tiger's more important aspect is that they are stealthy/ambush killers which is better represented in short bursts of speed than a roar. Aside from the fact that leonin's special ability of a very small aoe frighten for 1 round is soooo boring in comparison to an at will burst of speed you can use for jumping, traversing difficult terrain without wasting your turn, cool moments, etc.

Honestly tasha's put the final nail in the coffin to leonin for me, and the fact that racial sizes are getting sidelined along with alignments is just the cherry on top.

Is there any way to make a tower dungeon that isn't totally broken or requires counter magic?

If your dungeon is underground, there's no easy way to bypass everything. Like there just isn't a move earth or teleport spell that reliably gets you out of a tomb. But If you're looking at a tower, players can just fly to the top, or turn into an animal, or break out the climbing equipment, or do any number of things to bypass what's inside. Even if you put them at the top of the tower, players will most likely find a way to jump out the nearest window and featherfall to the ground.

Really? Priestly characters being holy warriors is incredibly common. Probably because it's originally based on the fact that it was common in both reality and story.

Secondly, they'd still be fine. Spirit Guardians would be slightly less busted, oh noooo. Full casting, d8 hit die, light armor/some kind of inherent divine protection, domain abilities, channel divinity (especially with recent buffs)--they're fine.

As for the Rogue thing, it's clear Thieves became Rogues in a general sense, Dexterity is busted enough that giving them proficiency with weapons that use Strength should be relatively fine. They'll have trash AC anyway

Would a Fairy Archfey Chain Warlock with the criminal background be a good fit? I figure the character and their sprite familiar could be a miniature crime duo.

So I was looking through Tasha's today and it occurred to me... a Glory Paladin basically has all the right ingredients to be a wrestling grappler, replacing the usual advice of some combination of Bearbarian/Bard/Rogue/Monk, right? I think I'm on to something here but I might be an idiot, help me figure out where I'm wrong?

Be a half-orc or variant human, take Tavern Brawler and Prodigy (Athletics). Channel Divinity gives advantage on Strength (Athletics) just like a Barbarian's rage, and gives them double lifting capacity (which not even Barbarian gets), Aura of Alacrity gives additional movement to help negate the grapple movement penalty, Glorious Defense lets them slap an enemy on reaction (which they can turn into a grapple with Tavern Brawler per usual), and their spell list is full of useful shit to pump up their already potent Athletics checks -- and, unlike a Barbarian, Glory Paladin's Channel Divinity doesn't preclude concentration, so all those spells can actually be used while in beef mode. It also lasts 10 minutes compared to rage's 1, though that advantage goes away at level 15.

Or am I overcomplicating things and there's an easier path to chokeslamming dragons?

that sounds pretty close to a paladin to me - not identical, sure, but you're looking at two classes that fit the bill of:

I think the decanter of endless water would go rocketing out of their arse rather than the insta-death scenario. If it were magically secured in place then the decanter would shatter before doing close to lethal damage.

Channel Divinity (Peerless Athlete) at 3 gets you advantage on Athletics and double lift. It seems like Glory Paladin gets the relevant Bearbarian stuff 2 levels late (advantage at 3 vs 1, +10ft movement at 7 vs 5) in exchange for spellcasting that functions during their rage-equivalent.
