Making an attack takes an action. Using an attack roll in place of a save doesn't.

Yeah, its a good ability. Strong, but not overly so.

So like cutting a fireball in half? Seems reasonable and inline with the class's flavor.

Full ranks in a skill and full base attack bonus get you to the same place though. It's not unbalanced from a mechanical standpoint.

But a strength check makes it all but useless.

But this will never work. Strength checks don't scale. As soon as the DC goes over 20 it's going to be very hard for this to do anything. The ability is better as is.
