I need a first-level elemental water spell, and I'm stuck.

I need some inspiration. I'm looking for a good 1st-level utility spell from each elemental province. Something simple and versatile that any elemental mage or sorceror would have in his arsenal.

I've got Affect Normal Fires (Flame) from the PH. I've got Alter Normal Winds (Wind) from AA. My best fit for Sand is Move Sand, also from AA.

I'm a bit stumped on what to use for Sea though. Create Water is a cleric spell, though it's a 2nd level elemental water spell a well. Nothing from the Sea province or the Water list is ringing my bell here.

I'm not looking for homebrew; just suggestions or ideas.

All considered; none give you the same elemental control at first level.

I'm not sure I understand what you need. Night Druid found you seven spells, but you don't like any of them. :?

What does "elemental control" mean? Do you need a spell that actually interacts with elemental creatures? :?

Here are the only other published 1st level Water Elemental wizard spells:

Arctic Spray (Dragon Annual 1996)
Avoid Planar Effects (Planewalker's Handbook)
Desalinate (Dragon 235)
Glide (Of Ships and the Sea)
Ice Shard (Dragon 243)
Icy Missile (Dragon Annual 1996)
Neutral Water (The Sea of Fallen Stars)
Tanatha’s Melt (Dragon 246)
Tears of the Crocodile (The Sea of Fallen Stars)

But looking over them, I don't think any of them are what you're looking for. Metamorphose Liquids is the spell that offers the most elemental control of the bunch, IMO.
