What is the approximate power tier of the Battle Sorcerer variant from UA?
I know regular sorcerers are generally accepted as Tier 2.... I’d imagine that Battle Sorcerers drop to Tier 3 due to diminished spell-casting and becoming MAD.

The battle sorcerer is distinctly worse than the sorcerer—fewer spells per day, fewer spells known, and all you get in return is +2 hp and +¼ BAB per level on average.
But you still have 9th-level spells from the fantastic sorcerer/wizard list—that’s good enough for tier 2. Probably the bottom of tier 2, but still there.
