Once again we see the full moon in the background...which I love. The moons really set the tone for the deck (among other things). Compared to the rest of the deck, The Magician is rather simple: a guy just standing there with an inquisitive look on his face. However, there seems to be a kind of energy radiating off his left arm--like he's charging up his power (like a super hero or something similar), ready to cast his spell (or whatever).
The guy kinda looks like Tom Cruise, and he seems to be wearing an Asian-looking outfit--but I'm not sure if it's supposed to be Asian-looking. There seems to be a lot of power building up in him...but he seems to not be completely ready to test out his powers; he needs to learn more and experience more before setting out on his "quest" or life.
