My opinion is different, as you know. I'm happy to let this stay an impasse.But in the context of this thread re: RAW. We have rules for both magic and non magic situations as RAW.
IMO, the DM is being overly selective if they often/usually let the magic RAW pass because "it's magic...."
But also often give the side eye and overrule the non magic RAW because they violate their sense of "realism."
I've seen that WAY too often and it's absolutely not consistent.
