if you have 13 magica will it summon a 12 cost or nothing at all?

You only have 7 magicka remaining after you play him, so he summons a 7 cost creature.

I don't know what would happen if you did have more than 12 max magicka (or if you simply don't have a suitable creature in your deck) but I'd guess that it either summons a Sweet Roll like Altar of Despair or does nothing.

SzGamer227 is correct, if you use him to summon a 1-Cost creature and you don't have any 1-Cost creatures in your deck he will summon a Sweet Roll.

If this is your only 6 cost creature and you have 3 copies, playing one at 12 magicka will summon all three. 12/12 for 6 ain't bad.

EDIT: Nerfed to 7 cost. Now you will sometimes get an extra Pathmage when you to hit Nix-Ox at 14 magicka.

omg you are right, But let's say you have only 1 more awesome lvl 6 creature. If you are lucky you summon all 4!!!!
I love the art
it can do crazy stuff if you play ramp sorcerer/telvanni.
it can summon another copy of itself if played on 12, Nahagliiv if played on 13, ancano if you played on 14, laaneth on 15 or atromancer on 16.
you get the idea just do your math.

On turn 7 you can use Genius Pathmage to guarantee you always summon a Blood Sorceress, ready to deal 5 damage since it's turn 7.

Sorry for the self-promotion, but I thought it was worth noting. People are also combo-ing this card with Nix-Ox, for example: and

Very interesting card overall, gets a 5 from me.
Can anyone explain to me why everytime i play this card at 14 mana, instead of giving me Ancano (because I have 8 left) it gives me a sweet roll, I lost so many game because I was sure to have a really cool card.

Do you have Ancano in your deck? This summons a creature from your deck. If your deck does not contain Ancano, or you played it already and it is on the board/discard pile, then it is not working. Or, if you have Ancano, and it is in your deck but still don't get him then perhaps the card got bugged.
Maybe, it wasn't in my deck, in my discard maybe, I play the merchand Camel in this deck so maybe I discard it...I'm gonna give him one last chance then, thanks for the answer !
