    A level 20 Wizard of each school vs each other in combat

    So I'm fascinated by this theoretical battle so I'd like to see what everybody else thinks.

    Which school would come out on top if they all fought each other to the death?

    Lets say they're all stated with point buy with the 5 normal ASI/feat options. Race doesn't matter as long as they're all the same.

    They are facing off in a large open field with no cover roughly 50-60ft apart. Nobody is surprised. We can say that they all got to cast their one concentration spell prior to Initiative.

    I wanna say no prep time, but if this is a complete handicap to some of the schools... perhaps the minionmancers.... we could throw in some prep time.

    Did I forget anything?

    Who wins and why?

    Divination. They saw the fight coming and prepared accordingly. That and having a simulacrum, for a combined total of 6 portents...

    It would be random. Run it a thousand times and there might be some slight trends towards abjurers, war mages and diviners, but only a slight trend. It would mostly depend upon initiative (anyone going late is likely to die before they go).

    I'm guessing bladesingers wouldn't do much.

    My bet is on whichever one gets to cast Wish 1st....

    Wizards are too smart to get engaged in such crappy situation.

    The fight ends with seven dead superwizards, right?

    That's a big win for the necromancers, even if their guy goes down.

    Well I'm gonna go with Abjurer because of the Arcane Ward, spell resistance, and all the best reaction spells that will be used every round are Abjuration spells that just keep the ward charged up.
