Reply Subj: Magneto with no blood tricks has always been taken as PM as far as I can recall

We know Magneto doesn't use blood tricks that often, but is there a version of Magneto -- who's not depowered in some way -- who isn't capable of using blood tricks if he wants to? He could use them as far back as the '70s at least, so it certainly wasn't a late addition to his powerset.

And if pretty much all powered versions of Magneto are capable of using blood tricks, then what are you actually drafting when you specify Magneto with no blood tricks? It seems to me you're essentially attempting to draft modern Magneto with a personality rewrite, as opposed to a version that actually existed.

Magneto is regularly drafted as a PM, but he's more often specified as "classic" Magneto in those cases, rather than Magneto with no blood tricks. And that makes more sense to me, as classic Magneto is a version that did actually exist in the comics.
