Magicians are a subset of disciplines within Earthdawn that are characterised by access to the Spellcasting talent.

In the core rules, the disciplines that have access to Spellcasting are Elementalists, Illusionists, Nethermancers and Wizards. The Thread Weaving talent dictates from which spell list an adept draws their spells. Thread Weaving [Elementalism] for example, grants the magician access to the Elementalist spell list.
