I've been calling Magic wannabes "wizard fights" for a while now, but most of them aren't really worth mentioning. I honestly can't even think of any to add right now.
I'm gonna rank the games here that I've played enough to form opinions on, because why not. Wiz-War gets excluded because one play ages ago isn't enough.
Zimby Mojo - A celebration of conflict in game form. Tough to table, but worth it.
Mystery Wizard - The second half of Zimby Mojo turned into an entire game. A simpler alternative that's no less funny.
Summoner Wars - One of the best wizard fight games ever made. Huge character spread, deck construction, strategies, etc.
Magic: The Gathering - The classic. It's been outdone by now, but respect where it's due.
Mage Wars - Similar to Summoner Wars but overwrought with keywords, status effects, and assorted wackiness.
Ashes - Started strong, then Asmodee happened and Plaid Hat floundered. Now it's overwrought and no one plays it.
Epic Spell Wars - This game fits on this list thematically, but it's definitely not doing the same thing. As a Munchkin alternative it's pretty damn good.

Sorcerer (1975) certainly makes the list.
I thought that Sorcerer (1975) was about guys driving a truckload of nitroglycerine on rough roads in the Andes.
