The guardian creature in "Two Sought Adventure" ("The Jewels in the Forest") was magical. Perhaps a summoned creature?

The illusions on the shelves in "The Bazaar of the Bizarre". Also the animated bronze-statue in same.

Prince Gwaay's telekinetic skills in Lords of Quarmall, of which he is the unsdisputed master though not by any means the sole possessor - it's apparently common enough in his home to have a boardgame devised around it - and Mouser's wonderfully effective death-spell in that story. Also the curses and wards of the twice-twelve wizards of both the rival princes.

The alchemy-induced out-of-body exploits in The Howling Tower.

The sorcerer Hristomilo's smog-work in Ill Met in Lankhmar.

Fafhrd's perhaps questionable avatarship of Issek of the Jug in Lean Time in Lankhmar - he himself believes it, at any rate.

The spinning-top workings of the old sea-witch to command the water in When the Sea-King's Away.

There was that dungeon where Mouser and Fafhrd were on opposite sides and there were wizards constantly fighting against each other.

Mouser somehow spoke a spell that killed all the wizards on one side, because they were too low level. And his lord got inflicted with about twenty horrible rotting maladies.

mouser uses magic to hide his passage in unholy grail and latter, while tortured, blasts away at the duke.

hristomilo also has a familiar and is vulnerable to silver.

There are really too many to mention. If we were talking magic cast by Fafhrd and Mouser that would reduce it considerably.
