Need a great Marvel Future Revolution Magik build? Then you must be from the future. Unless you're part of some top-secret beta testing branch, you'll know that Magik isn't playable just yet. Announced shortly after the game's release, its second unlockable member of the X-Men is coming: we just don't know when, or even what exactly she'll bring to the table. But that won't stop us from speculating on what might make her more powerful.

Right now, we don't know when Magik will release in Marvel Future Revolution, or the skills she'll bring to a squad. What we do know, however, is that it isn't the first time she's been included in a Marvel game made by Netmarble. We can use that information to guess how she'll play, and thus we can make an informed guess as to how to build her as well.
Remember that this is highly speculative at the moment, so we'll update our guide with the latest info as soon as the character drops.
The Best Magik Costumes
|Best Magik Costume||Alternative Magik Costume|
Other than the crafted Regional costumes, every character has around 14 different outfits to choose from. Each of these have wildly different stats and skill level increases tied behind their set bonuses.
The idea is to work on getting the non-regional set that boosts your preferred build as you try to gamble your way to a complete crafted set with higher stats. Without knowing any of these, we really can't say which Magik costume will be the best with complete certainty.
The Best Magik Specializations
Specializations is one area of a Magik build we really can't speculate on until she arrives. There are so many little nodes spread across different skill type focuses. They're all tailor-made for a particular subset of her abilities. Without knowing exactly what those are, we'll just have to wait until she arrives before we make our decision. Come back later.
The Best Magik Skills
|Energy Impact||Cosmic Recharge||Lightspeed Movement|
|Photon Charge||Blast Cone||Cosmic Energy|
|Photon Energy||Photon Overflow||Cosmic Energy|
|Photon Buster||Focal Energy Shot||Cosmic Energy|
|Photon Blast||Photon Focus||Cosmic Energy|
By looking at the skills she commonly used in Marvel Future Fight, a game made by the same developer, we can see that Magik focused on self-buffs and defensive tactics.
If that happens to be true in Marvel Future Revolution, expect one of the better Magik build options to revolve around cooldown reduction. Like Star-Lord and his Critical Hit buffs, stacking Cooldown Reduction will increase the uptime of her buffs, increasing their worth.
The Best Magik Potential
|Potential Category||Primary Stat Priority||Secondary Stat Priority|
|Warbird I||ATK||HP, DEF|
|Warbird II||ATK, Defense Pierce||Stamina Recovery|
|Warbird III||Defense Pierce||Guard Damage Decrease, DEF|
|Warbird IV||ATK, Defense Pierce||Stamina Recovery|
Like any other character in the game, Magik will start building out her Potential window early on. These hero-specific tabs generally include the stats the developers intend for each character to pick, making them very useful for discerning their innate strengths and weaknesses.
For a Magik build, we expect Stamina Recovery, Cooldown Reduction, and ATK to be worthwhile picks. If we're right in thinking Magik will focus on buffing herself, Cooldown Reduction will keep these active longer. And if she's expected to rattle off attacks at speed while they're active, Stamina Recovery will help keep her going.
The Best Magik Omega Cards
|Best Omega Cards||Alternative Omega Cards|
|Midgardia #6||Dark Zone #3|
Assuming the correct Marvel Future Revolution Magik build relies on stats like Cooldown Reduction and Stamina Recovery, we can theorycraft the best Omega Card sets before her release.
By using Star-Lord as a basis, we can assume the Xandearth #4 set will work well on her. The two-set bonus is what we'd aim for with the Stamina Recovery buff, but the four-set bonus of Ultimate Guage Recovery could play to her strengths as well. Finishing off with the two-piece Hydra Empire #2 Omega Card set would give some ATK and Cooldown Decrease for good measure.
Magik is able to turn into a Demon. If this is carried into Marvel Future Revolution similar to Captain Marvel's Binary form, it could activate alongside her Ultimate. We don't know how it might affect her stats in battle, but Ultimate abilities are never a bad thing.
The Best Magik Battle Badges
|Best Badge Set||Alternative Badge Set|
|Lord of the Desert||Maestro|
Unless we get some new Battle Badges with the Magik update, it's safe to say another Maestro (Blitz) set will be the first thing you'll want to farm after hitting the max level.
After that, it really depends. Battle Badges have little to offer outside of offence and defence. Support heroes are generally left to just pick up whatever offers the correct bonus stats. If Magik's Ultimate does end up being her main battle strategy, however, the Growing Pain set from Yellow Jacket in the Dark Zone could be a big help.
And that's about it for this Marvel Future Revolution Magik build guide. A lot of this could change once the character is properly revealed, but it doesn't hurt to try and guess what might be just around the corner. All we ask is that you don't invest any time or money into these speculatory builds until their worth is confirmed.
