Rolling a 1 or 20, PHB pg 194
[...] If the d20 roll for an attack is a 1, the attack misses regardless of any modifiers or the target's AC.
Lucky Feat, PHB pg 167
[...]You can choose to spend one of your luck points after you roll the die, but before the outcome is determined.
Rolling a 1 on an attack roll (Nat 1) is often called being an auto-fail and with a good reason. Is it intended for these rolls to be instant failure/success? Because as soon as you see that 1 on the die you know: you have failed and there is a limited number of ways to change that. The question is: "Is Lucky one of them?".
I can see a DM calling "You have failed so hard that even your inexplicable luck can't get you out of this one", and it is usually fun for the players when something so unlucky happens to someone else. At least in my experience. My question is if it was meant to be like that as seeing that 1 alone can be a confirmation for failure. Are features like Lucky(dice manipulation features) worded that way to prevent these manipulations?
