    Cheap powers and you start off with a demon repeater to duplicate. I like.

    Also, in before the babies complain about not her being a counter to the meta and before the talk degenerates into talk about the meta.

    ...not sure which meta is supernatural, I wish we could filter by affiliations. Who is this supposed to counter?

    Most of her powers are straightforward and she will be a good asset against characters who can heal consistently or frequently, and her powers are thematically fitting.

    The only part of her ability I don't understand is this:

    Maximum 5 Demons, +2 each time this ability is used.

    Is the maximum number ofDemons 5 or is the number as high as 64, theoretically speaking?

    Cheap powers and lot of permanent damage. Permanent damage can counter characters healing often like crystal and chasm. Until now it always was chip damage, however these repeaters can deal serious damage if there are many of them, and should be able to boosting them.
    As we already know a repeaters based character is weak against Mthor, but it says demon repeater tile, I wonder if it's a character tile.

    It can be as high as 64 theoretically...but to get there you would need to cast black 30 times.

    Black seems interesting if you can consistently match her tiles. Red doesn't hit super hard but it's cheap, ignores protects, permanent damage, destroys enemy tiles, and boost to match damage is something. Purple 55% damage reduction from matches and abilities is ok, cheap ability which doesn't hit very hard like red, AP destruction is juat a bonus.

    Have to see how she plays out. The black could be interesting effected by damage boosters. She's interesting that each ability does a few different things.

    I dunno - her Permanent damage could really cause problems with any metacharacter. pair with Crystal and soon they won't be reviving with any life.

    altho I can't really decide what build would be the best. 4/5/4 maybe?

    Seems like she's gonna be a good character in both pve and pvp at first glance.

    I need to find a way to spam her black power then, if it's possible.

    Her Demon tiles don't deal permanent damage. If you want to counter constant healing enemies, 3/5/5 should be good.

    So if she’s tanking up front, her match-3’s are boosted and do perma damage?

    I like the new feeder map design. Does this make Magik the first 4 star to feed multiple 5s?

    3/5/5 right? Seems like the damage from the two cheap actives is worth it and the demon tiles are still viable at 3.

    Overall she seems like a good addition to the 5* pool and a potentially useful counter to some of the passive healing characters like chasm and (for teammates) crystal.

    So for 5 demon tiles on the board, she would be doing 64k passive damage every two turns? Am I calculating this right? That seems like a lot, but will take a few turns to get that many, and chances if them surviving long are low since they are not fortified.

    If Mthor is on either team the chances of them surviving is zero.

    2 adjustments could've made Magik great.
    1st - 1 turn repeaters tiles for both powers using repeaters.
    2nd - Any way a demon tile is removed or destroyed, replace with 2 demon tiles. (Repeater effect fires more easily and becomes an instant counter to mThor

    She's also the first P5 to not offer anything to her team mates. I thought they were gonna do something related to her teleportation powers.
