Like in boxing, boxers are needed to train months before they go into a fight. This is for the reason they need to condition themselves so they could handle the blow-by-blow errr... battle in the ring. As for Aladdin, he wasn't able to condition his body before letting a large amount of magoi entered him.
Of course he had some "serious" physical training under Myers, and he have stayed in Magnostadt learning magic, but Aladdin is still a child, and his body is under the maturing stage. In addition, he stayed at the Holy Palace with Ugo-kun teaching him ony about Flame/heat magic, with unknown number of years, compared at Magnostadt with
assumingonly one and a half years.
There are reasons why he couldn't bear the sudden flow of magoi in his body, and Nii-chan's explanation is a possibility for it.
As for why they're fighting a war one way or another they had no choice. Either Reim or Kou empire would have started one whether they had confidence in actually winning a war is a irrelevant matter its just a necessity for them at the moment, it was always either they give up peacefully and ally themselves or fight with whatever pride/racism they have against the goi (with Mogamett as a leader its clear they'd only have one choice). Best that could be done is to rouse them up and instill some sort of confidence and use whatever tools they have but I think its always been clear that Magnostadt is on the losing end. Only thing they really have to their name is the potential nukes they could produce, which unfortunately because its home ground would easily cause more damage to them than to the opponent. I think you may have given Magnostadt too much credit when really end of the day odds have always been against them.
Aladdin does prove a feasible solution given that he only needs to eliminate a few enemies and among those enemies while they are powerful they lack a substantive amount of magoi, he'd simply need to tire them out only one he'd have to confront really is Mu. Aladdin has prior to using his magi ability been a stellar magician and I can't claim that the other mages are any more experienced than him on battle since like I said earlier they've been more interested in studying. Heck if anything Aladdin might have more battle experience than the other mages in that he certainly has battled a varied amount of opponents, not simply fellow mages or rank and file soldiers as magicians of Magnostadt have been shown to generally handle.

Cut short on the juicy part. I guess this will be the start of the real fight between the 2 Magi. And I guess that Ali Baba will finally make an appearance next chapter in order to help Aladdin stop the war.
But still, the Magicians are beings who has a lot of Magoi to use, the pinnacle of them is the Magi who uses Ruhk from the enviroment to battle and isn't affected by using magic, they born that way... so it's logic to think they are different from other magicians... after all accord the legend, the great Magi get down from heaven to put order to the earth and choose a King. They're special... Aladdin with the stones was like any human, i get it. He takes it, then Ruhk start going directly to them which cause a heavy charge of magic through his body... i repeat, why he isn't able to using that if he is a mage? Also, one question more... if he's a little child using magic, why he wasn't affected by this recoil of using magic? My response... because he's a Magi
The magicians wants to be acknowledge by his arts and skills like any human, the reason why they're fighting is that making a kingdom they will feel confident. But they are weaklings who wouldn't step above others because they study and appears doesn't train what they study. In fact, pitiful to me and don't blame too much the narrative, this is more a fight than a war.
Your third point i don't agreed. Aladdin is getting tired the opponents, so why he wants to talk with Sche? He needs to prove that he's someone to start a talk with her, these chapters have been only for that, not much credit.
He wants to talk to Scherry, ok. For what? She will stop the attack? Mogammet will? Both are a no to me.
Hamy, if you understand why Aladdin is doing, i would appreciate if you share it.
And the reason he wasn't affected by the recoil previously, was because it wasn't his magic power that he was using for his attack, but using the Ruk's magic power for it, and therefore bypassing his magic power limit on his body.
Only factor I really consider difficult to gauge is the Kou empire and how exactly will they proceed as it is in their best interest to seek the worst outcome, or to create it so to speak.
Also I think you mistook something... I just speculated that Aladdin would prefer to tire our his opponents, well the house hold vessel users, because he's not exactly out for blood given his kind nature would ideally prefer to avoid hurting them either way, and at least that option does exist either through tiring them out or rendering them completely useless with some sort of magic or really strong bolg. I don't see Aladdin trying to harm the remaining Finalis corps which is only really an issue against Mu since he has a metal vessel.

Aladdin wants to stop Mogammett of using "that dark weapon" which is like to make a power source to Al Sarmen and take over other empires, Kou Empire utilizing the weapon when it began his use and then wiping the floor with the Plateau troops, with Reim and Magnostats guilts of that and begin a greater war.
This is what i thought first, so he had to see that weapon to stop it, i didn't wanted to him be a mere hero. Either way, Aladdin meddled into and started to ask a dialoge with Scherezade, he needs to take his attention.
This is what i didn't have clear and why the great characters stop to appear started to dissapoint me. About Alibaba, i only thought he will help Aladdin to withstand that dark force of Mogammett. But doing the same what happened in Balbadd, i admit it would follow the correct plot at this moment with only three people fighting.
So, does anyone know if the chapter is coming out this week or not? there isn’t even the translation...
Well, Magi isn't absent this week, according to information provided by Oberon here. Not sure I can provide the answer for the late of translation, since it goes without saying that I don't know the condition of aegon. Fingers crossed so the chapter will be released this week to, as usual.
the translation is out!
the translation were quite late compared last week. But we should be thankful that we will got a good doze of Magi-epicness by tomorrow or on the following day or when the actual scanlations were out.
anyway, I must refrain from searching for other sources of spoilers for now..
