    magus works well with every other aoe spell/thing in the game. yeah he works well with bf ember too.

    it's not easy to get good rps vs good teams throughout the game especially with people pick shit like puck and bat

    Not to get too theorycrafty, but does anyone know why people don't draft a magnus when they run wisp + tiny? The buff seems like it was made just for Tiny. Also you don't even need to rely on big RPs with a wisp+tiny. Mag can just sit in back during late game and wait to bail out Tiny with RP if Tiny gets into trouble.

    Primarily the dmg / cleave buff - late game it's equivalent to like 2 free battlefuries. The combos a bonus I guess.

    Magnus has one of the highest skill cap of almost any hero IMO.

    It doesn't take much to do well enough in mid using shock wave. But after you get blink you have to constantly make the decision of where to position yourself to get a good RP or get the blink skewer.

    If you're really good at Magnus you're damn fucking good and it's really noticeable compared to other mid heroes.

    That's why hao was so well known for Magnus bc it's not an easy hero to use especially late game.

    I used to draft wisp/tiny/mag a lot back in the day in ixdls. Mag kinda fell off though and its pretty greedy to draft those 3 together.

    i feel like on paper mag is a top hero

    in actual games it's really hard to play him as an initiator UNTIL late game. when ur at lategame all u need to do is hit the enemy carry and it's a "good RP." it's similar to enigma in a way in that enigma has trouble finding good holes early/mid but lategame all u need is dagger+bkb and as long as u hole the enemy carry it's a good hole.

    before lategame it's a nightmare to play him going in first and it's really easy to fuck him up.
