He gains an additional magus arcana for every three levels of magus attained after 3rd level. Unless specifically noted in a magus arcana's description, a magus cannot select a particular magus arcana more than once.

Magus Arcana Tips & Notes
- At the time of this being written, the mythic ability Enduring Spells applies to all magic abilities with a duration including spending Arcane Pool points on enhancement bonuses. This makes Enduring Blade even more effective than it may first appear as its duration will be 24 hours once Greater Enduring Spells is acquired.
- The feat Extra Arcana adds 2 points to your Arcane Pool and can be selected multiple times.
- The Abundent Arcane Pool mythic ability increases the number of points in your Arcane Pool by an amount equal to your mythic rank.
- If playing a Trickster Mythic Path Magus, Wand Wielder and Wand Mastery are extremely efficient with the Rank 2 version of the Use Magic Device Mythic Trick. Wands you cast from will use your Caster Level, Intelligence Modifier, and have unlimited charges allowing you to use Spell Strike or Spell Combat with higher level spells indefinitely.
