    Don't forget that Grave clerics can BA Spare the Dying, and at a distance, too. There's probably other class features that turn action spells into BA spells, but this was the first one I thought of.

    You might also include those spells where you cast them, and then can use a BA on subsequent turns with that spell, such as with Spiritual Weapon.

    Edit: I'm a dummy and didn't see Spiritual Weapon was already there. The basic point still stands, though, but maybe you already have all the spells that use BAs while active.

    Branding Smite is a good one to get somehow, via Necklace of Prayer Beads or Magical Secrets if you dont already have smite. You can use brandding smite for ranged attacks.

    Guardian Nature is a good one for non-moon druid. You can BA guardian then action wildshape into ape or something.

    Huh. Banishing Smite and Branding Smite don't specify melee weapon... the rest of the smite spells need to be a melee weapon.

    Also Flaming Sphere takes is another one that takes an action to cast then can be manipulated with a bonus action

    Just at a glance I can see Crown Of Stars isn't there, so OP definitely doesn't.

    Yeah, and heat metal is a pretty good use of a BA as well.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Greywander. Spells that make use of your bonus action after initially casting them would be helpful too. I will give it a look, as I was also unaware of your example of the Grave cleric ability.
