Magi

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Magi are a group of card cycles featuring Human Wizards that reference other cards from Magic's history.[1] Each cycle of Magi copies a different type of card. So far there have been Magi cycles made for artifacts, lands, enchantments, and a fourth cycle that is being made for sorceries. The Magi cycles debuted in the Time Spiral block and were featured in all three sets of that block. Since then, a mega cycle has been made within the Commander series, releasing another card of the cycle each year.

Some of the referenced cards are featured on the Reserved List, and couldn't be reprinted in their own right.

Unlike the other Magi cycles, the Sorcery Magi are being released over the course of many Commander sets, starting with Commander 2015 Although expected, the cycle didn't finish with Commander 2019,[2] but will finally be finished in Commander Legends.[3] While three Magi have their respective sorcery cost the in their activated ability cost, Mind's Desire works far too differently to replicate exactly and hence has its Magus' mana cost be the same.
