Not bad and could make for an interesting storyline, but the problem that I see is that unlike other types of supervillains, mystical/magical villains seem to be more loner types and egomaniacs and would therefore make the storyline too short. I don't think that there would be any type of sharing of power and coordination and the team would disintegrate too quickly. Yes, I know that is supposed to be the way of villain groups, but then again, look at how long the Wrecking Crew, the Headmen, and even the core of Zemo II's Masters of Evil were together. Yeah, some minor comings and goings, but you have that with every super-team.

Oh, and you forgot two of the most powerful magical villains: Loki and Dormammu. Throw in a Zarathos and Lilith (from Ghost Rider, not Drac's daughter) and you really have quite a party there.

Well it's true that magic using types do tend to be maniacal self serving jerks. So a group like this would probably be a one-shot deal, a group who see the goal as being worth setting aside their egos...for five or six issues, anyway.

The matter of ego was why I left Dormammu, Loki, Dracula and Morgan Le Fey off the list, those guys usually take on teams single handedly anyway. Although Zarathos and Lilith are good additions to the team.
