His flavor is amazing (and I don't mean that he's a Magi of the older card).
Look at that flavor text.
He is constantly threatened by his own ability,
But he pushes onward, hoping the player that summoned him has something to appease the Abyss till the next turn, so it doesn't suck him up.
I'm diggin' it.

Yeah, you could turn him into an artifact using the licid or the transogrant. You could also use Neurok Stealthsuit or Whispersilk Cloak to give him shroud- that way even your opponent probably won't be able to kill him.

Use with Ashnod's Transmogrant for some handy survival. I'm sure there are other cards that would work, but not I can think of.

It's pretty solid, and if you are playing with some zombie tokens or something, it is nice and brutal, as it ought to be.

i think this is a good card fools. its just more combo-y than most. hell just use a nuisance engine, or anything that makes tokens (or the guy who can keep making festering goblins to make sure no one else does!)

It targets, so all you gotta do is give him shroud and sit pretty. No fancy hoops to jump through. I would use some small board sweepers like pyroclasm to prevent them from just sacking saprolings.

@Elysiume you could also use that one licid, Transmogrifying Licid.

Nearly every card in Time Spiral block was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references The Abyss and is part of the "Magus" super cycle of rare creatures. The Future Sight part of the cycle focuses on powerful enchantments, even matching the mana cost; the others are Magus of the Future, Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Moon, and Magus of the Vineyard.

The Time Spiral part of the cycle focuses on powerful artifacts: Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Mirror, Magus of the Jar, and Magus of the Scroll. The Planar Chaos cycle focuses on powerful lands: Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus... (see all)

@ AbyssalManZero

The card this is based off is a rare. This card was made of a fifteen card, five color cycle across the Time Spiral Block, the first set based off of Artifact cards, the second on Lands, and the final (which this is a part of) off of Enchantments. Each card that the Magi were based on, were game changing when they came out. Not enough to be rated mythic status, I reckon, but they were enough to allow players of early Magic to completely change the way the game was played, and is to this day for those who play with older cards. You may not be able to appreciate the flavor of these cards, but they are creature replicas of some very, very, very powerful permanents back in the day. They were given appropriate mana costs, power and toughness, and their abilities harken back to those days when The Abyss dominated in black control. Look up the price of the card itself: 50 USD and that's at the low end. Yes, the creature's not quite the same... (see all)
