    A Cantrip that is balanced as a counterpart for basic attacks. Something like 1d4 or 1d6 damage with +1 to damage and/or to-hit per caster level. Also, have it be a Ray, for those rare Wizards who grab Weapon Focus (Magic Ray).
    What version of the game is this for? 3.5 and Pathfinder have ray of frost that does 1d3 points of cold damage. Note that acid orb also causes 1d3 points of damage as a cantrip so that has precedence.Cantrips shouldn't cause more damage than that.

    However, if you want alternative rays how about the following:

    You can change the names to fit your campaign but the mechanics should be consistent for 0-level rays.

    Ray of Sunshine
    Evocation [Fire]
    Level: Sor/Wiz 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Effect: Ray
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    A ray of white light projects from your pointing finger. You must succeed on a ranged touch attack with the ray to deal damage to a target. The ray deals 1d3 points of fire damage.

    Ray of Storms
    Evocation [electricity]
    Level: Sor/Wiz 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Effect: Ray
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    A ray of lightning projects from your pointing finger. You must succeed on a ranged touch attack with the ray to deal damage to a target. The ray deals 1d3 points of electricity damage.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.
