Given the following two facts, through a strict RAW reading (a DM of course can and likely should handwave this issue), is a typical corpse a valid target of Revivify?
You touch [a creature that has died] ...
Where I've marked in brackets what I understand the target to be of the spell.
If the target is a creature that has died, but a corpse is an Object, does that mean most* corpses are invalid targets for Revivify?
This spell should do something, for the material cost and spell slot it does the effects specified. The real question is how and why does it work?
*(Ignoring the standard Animate Objects way of getting around this.)
