Is she on par with other Magicians like Dr.Strange and Wanda?

Depends on the dimension.  Really, she has powers that are beyond vast, that she cannot use on earth.  When in Limbo, she is Sorceress Supreme.

They slightly retconned Illyana's powers about half way through the original New Mutants.  She went from having limited power on Earth to none at all.  Before she could create protective wards, enter the astral plane and even wiped selected memories from Stevie Hunter's mind.  After, she pretty much relied on teleporting her victims to Limbo to perform spells...

But as White Mage said, in Limbo she was the top cat.

i hated that. I understand using Sym as an interrogation tool, but relying solely on Limbo to do anything... lame.

Magik's magical abilities are far more limited in Earth's dimension, though she could still manipulate magical energies for various effects. Even an unskilled (but Earth-based) magic-user like Forge has demonstrated himself to be her superior.

Yeah, we know that.  That's how it's always been (except during Inferno)... what did you mean by you thought she'd 'overcome' it?

IDK..It just seems like a dumb weakness. How can she be sorceress supreme in one dimension and be weaker than forge in her OWN dimension. I just dont understand that.

Her magic is limited on Earth-616. Even the consummate expression of her mystical power, the Soul Sword,  has to be used under the appropriate conditions. Although weakened, she's not completely without her fair share of power, just not on the same level as when she is in the realm of Limbo. The power comes with a price, that is one of Magik's numerous interpersonal dilemmas.

Wenn sie zerstört mit ihren Degen ein magisches Wesen, dessen Macht, sondern es geht. Ihre besondere Zeitreise können die gleiche wiederholt zu zerstören. Es ist also nicht eines der mächtigsten Wesen in 616?

We've seen that in Limbo she's got the same power levels as Cittorak, while on Earth she's one of the strognst magician
