astral sorcery forge mod minecraft

By HellFirePVP

Game Versions: 1.12, 1.15, 1.16

This mod is great for those who love exploring the universe and stars. While you can’t suddenly leave Minecraft’s surface world, you can use the power of starlight and constellations to learn some magic. With new ores and generated structures, it's time to follow the stars and become powerful!

By WayofTime

Game Versions: 1.12, 1.16

If you’re looking for a magic mod that also includes sacrifice and danger, then Blood Magic is for you. Channel your inner Dragon Age mage and use blood (either your own or someone else’s) to gain power. There is a comprehensive guide to help you get started, as this mod has a lot of elements to it!

thaumcraft forge mod minecraft

By Azanor13

Game Version: 1.12

Thaumcraft is a well known magic mod in the Minecraft community, which is why I needed to include it here. While it hasn’t been updated for recent game versions, it’s still beloved by many (just check the comments to see). This mod utilizes crafted objects in the game to transform them into “miracles”, also known as magic. Use the in-game Thaumonomicon to see how in depth you can go!

ensorcellation forge mod minecraft

By TeamCoFH

Game Versions: 1.14, 1.15, 1.16

If you want to add some new enchantments, but don’t want to heavily mod your game or include a large magic system, then consider Ensorcellation. This mod adds a variety of new enchantments, as well as improving some old ones! For example, the Displacement enchantment will randomly teleport attackers away and the Curse of Foolishness prevents experience gain when using the item.

apotheosis forge mod minecraft

By Shadows_of_Fire

Game Versions: 1.12, 1.14, 1.15, 1.16

Apotheosis is a magic mod that utilizes vanilla Minecraft mechanics and items to add in new enchantments, potions, and more. The enchantment table can be improved for even higher level enchantments, vertical growing blocks (i.e. sugar cane and bamboo) can grow taller, and can even extend a potion’s effect time! It’s a surprisingly lightweight mod that adds a little more spice to your vanilla playthrough.

botania forge mod minecraft

By Vazkii

Game Versions: 1.12, 1.14, 1.15, 1.16

One of my favorite magic mods is Botania! It’s a hybrid mod of technology and natural magic that focuses on creating magical flowers and devices through mana. There are a lot of new blocks and items in this mod, but thankfully it has an in-game lexicon book for players to follow along with.

nature's aura forge mod minecraft

By Ellpeck

Game Versions: 1.12, 1.14, 1.15, 1.16

A beautiful blend of technology and nature, Nature’s Aura enables players to collect, use, and replenish naturally growing Aura to create new items and devices. How you interact and use the mod can even affect the world around you. Will you change the environment positively or negatively? I will say that both options have creative results.

ars nouveau magic forge mod minecraft

By baileyholl2

Game Versions: 1.15, 1.16

For those experienced magic users, other mods might seem boring. Ars Nouveau lets you create your own spells, trinkets, artifacts, and machines. So no longer will you have to suffer with spells and enchantments that don’t help your needs, now you can just make them up yourself!

electroblob wizardry forge mod minecraft

By Electroblob

Game Version: 1.12

Whether you’re running a roleplay multiplayer server or just want a familiar system, this mod adds beloved roleplay game mechanics to Minecraft. Rather than complex crafting recipes, players improve their magical abilities by exploring and fighting. Find books, wands, and scrolls within the world, buy rare magical items from fellow wizards, and explore ancient ruins for powerful artifacts! There are even spell packs to add on that are compatible with other mods or were created by fans of the mod itself!

eidolon forge mod minecraft

By elucent_

Game Version: 1.16

If you’d like a lightweight magic mod that lets you essentially become a dark mage, Eidolon is the answer. Inspired by alchemy, theurgy, and necromancy, this mod enables players to create and practice a unique type of magic.
