      Is this spell a non-concentration substitute for Bestow Curse, or does the wait for the 3 saves makes it worse on boss fights?

        Melee touch attack spell, target takes 3 constitution saves to contract effect. 3 saves clears, 3 failures contracts long-rest duration effect.
        After you click the spell you select one of 6 options that attacks an ability score Str, Dex, Con, Int, Wis, Cha. It seems to use the Spell Attack roll to hit, then the target makes 3 CON saves (stage 1, 2, 3, like Petrification in PnP rules) and 3 failures inflicts the disease (disadvantage on chosen Ability checks and another chosen effect: ie. for Charisma Contagion the target is vulnerable to all damage.)

        While the target is undergoing the initial 3 stages of contagion it receives disadvantage on all Saves and Ability checks of the caster's chosen Ability (so CON would be very good on this). After 3 failures, there is a long-rest disadvantage on chosen ability and another effect depending on what you chose: Selecting Constitution Contagion means after 3 failures every time the target gets hit they are stunned, and this one is unusual in that the Strength ability checks are disadvantage (b/c there are no Constitution ability checks).
