Magus

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 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 the first card of the cycle in Commander 2015 and finally finishing in Commander Legends.

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

The Sorcery Magi were released over the course of many Commander sets, starting with Commander 2015. The cycle didn't finish as expected with Commander 2019,[2] but with Commander Legends instead.[3] They each have identical casting costs to the sorceries they mimic, while their activated abilities vary from Magus to Magus. While each Magi has to be sacrificed to mimic the one-shot effect of a sorcery, their abilities can notably be activated at instant speed.
