These miscs are recommended for any Mage build. If you are a Beastmaster Mage you should generally take a look at the miscs offered in the the Beastmaster section as well. For Utility Miscs use this page.
The strongest misc for normal attacks and any non-spell typed skill. Multiplies your damage by *1.267 with anything but spells, and by *1.1 with Spells at the cost of taking increased damage.

Warlic Oblivion Sphere
A contestant in terms of power against Blood Contract, offering +50 INT and +50 LUK, and on top of that occasionally blocks the enemy from casting spells.
Location: Valencia -> Golden Giftboxes -> UltraRare Shop
Weaker version of Blood Contract. Like all mastery emblems it provides a *1.253 multiplicative boost to Magic Weapon Based attacks (e.g. clicking the attack button, using weapon based skills, etc.) when a weapon of a specific type is equipped. Note that if you try to use the wrong weapon type or a spell, the emblem will unequip itself! Furthermore, because many weapon types have Magic toggles more than two Emblems will be linked below.

Irt of Osiris
One of the best misc items for most builds. Provides 40 INT and 50 END, and reduces incoming Light damage by 50%. Additionally, it provides +13.33 BtH to magic attacks and +5 BtH to spells/spell-based skills.
Location: Mage Shop -> Mastercraft Sets -> Osiris Set
A misc that increases your INT by 50, and your CHA by 30, as well as 31% chance of inflicting Control based on the damage dealt. Murderator Gauntlet is especially strong given the most recent changes to booster Pets/Guests as it effectively gives them 80 Stats to scale with. Additionally, the gauntlet can be a good substitute for Osiris if the additional accuracy/light defense isn't needed.
Location: Guardian Tower -> Nimrod -> Quests -> Arena of Enthusiasts! -> Moderators Challenge!
Applying Breserk on you, which multiplies your damage by *1.2195 any source of attack (including spells) at the cost of receiving a penalty of -15.3 BtH, making it a superb spellcasting misc. Be warned though that the reduction in accuracy sometimes will yield worse results than having no misc at all so make sure you have a good accuracy before using it. For more detailed analysis visit this page.
Note: A nice interaction is that Grakma's Harbinger boosts your Auto-Hit spells as well, nullifying the accuracy penalty.

Amulet of Drakonnan
The best option for mages who don't have access to Warlic's Oblivion Sphere, and don't want deal with mitigating the BtH deficit that Grakma's Harbinger has. Provides +50 INT and +9 Magic Defense, and lowers fire resistance by -10%.
Location: Speak to Twilly -> Anniversary Events -> The Dragon of Time -> Drakonnan
Prime Chaos Orb
Every time you click on the misc two effects are attempted:
1. Element scramble, attempting to shuffle the enemy's defenses.
2. Lean: Applies a lean to the opponent the same way some armors apply to you. The lean gets stronger the more you click it. Clicking the misc however costs your inventory slots, replacing them randomly with a "Skip Turn" button and the misc is no longer usable once miscs are locked out. The first click is free.
Fully-Offensive or pure characters will usually want to use this either for the element scramble, or for the one quick cast, as this effect only becomes efficient if the battle lasts longer than their usual battle.
Valencia -> Golden Giftboxes -> UltraRare Shop Rare (May return next February during the GGB Extravaganza)
Zfinity Gauntlet: Space
Comes with two skills.
- Harden Space: Usable once per battle. Grants the player a +60 MRM "Shield" for 1 turn. This costs 235 SP
- Soften Space: Usable once per turn. Grants the player a x0.5 All-Element EleShield for 1 turn. This costs 274 SP
Analysis: A good option for purely defensive characters. However, there are other sources of these effects without once per battle/turn limitations. Combining Geocastellum Robes and Edoc Imanok/Panoply (From Big Dictionary) can produce similar and potentially more powerful results.
Limited-Time Shop Rare - This item returns periodically.
Info-Subs - Update: Link
After being hit with an attack, once per turn, the misc sets itself to that element. All later attacks of that element during that turn deal -40% damage. This allows for an inventory efficient defensive setup.
