5th Edition Burning Ghost

A long time ago, I did flavor writeups for a bunch of monsters in a campaign world I am still working on. One of those is the Burning Ghost. Here is a set of stats for the lesser version of this firey undead with bonuses and penalties marked as (+x*) and (-x*) It is at +23* which is what the model presented asks for. If you playtest a burning ghost with your level 4+ D&D party, please let me know how it goes.:
