In this guide, you will learn to install The Magic Dragon build on Kodi. This build works on all the Kodi supported platforms including the Amazon Fire TV devices (FireStick, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube), Android (Tablets and Mobiles), Computers and more.
What Is Magic Dragon Kodi Build?
If you are looking for a simple, lightweight and straightforward build, try The Magic Dragon Kodi build. This build comes without any frills or pomp and still offers a decent Kodi experience. It has a small list of Kodi Addons but there is enough for quality streaming.
The Magic Dragon Kodi build is the part of cMan Wizard 19, which in turns from a trusted source cMaN’s Wizard Repository. The build works almost flawlessly on all the compatible devices, including the ones with low-specs. Due to these reasons, The Magic Dragon also makes it to our list of the Best Kodi Builds.
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect to a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3 months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

The Magic Dragon is a third-party Kodi build. Hence, you cannot get it from the official Kodi Add-on Repository. But, you can install it manually from a third-party source.

Please make sure that there are no typos while entering the URL. It is the key to installing The Magic Dragon build on Kodi.
Note: This URL points to the source of the build. FireStickTricks.com is not affiliated to the developers of the Magic Dragon Build.

14. Open the cMaN’s Wizard Repository you just installed.
15. Go ahead and click Program add-ons.
16. Click the cMaN Wizard 19.

20. Then this pops up. The Build Menu button will take you directly to the list of the available builds within the wizard. You may click it. If you want to install the build later, click Close. We will access the build menu from the home screen of Kodi.
21. Press the back button repeatedly and return to the Kodi main/home screen. You may now navigate to Add-ons > Program add-ons and click cMaN Wizard 19.

I recommend Fresh Install. It is always good to have the build installed with no previous data. Builds usually are more stable that way.
25. If you chose Fresh Install in the previous step, you will be prompted for the confirmation. Click Yes.
26. The Magic Dragon is a lightweight Kodi build and usually takes less than 2 minutes to install. However, it also depends on your connection speed and geographic location.
27. When the build is installed, click OK to force close Kodi and finalize the installation.
You may now reopen Kodi and start using The Magic Dragon build.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
How to Use The Magic Dragon Build
Honestly, there isn’t a great deal you need to do to learn to use this build. It is a lightweight build with a straightforward interface. However, if you are new to Kodi builds, you might need a bit of a head-start.
So, when you reopen Kodi after the installation, the build will load up. It might get stuck on the launch screen for a few minutes where it will say ‘Add-on migration in progress’. Wait until you see the main screen of the build, which looks like this:
There is the main menu along with a submenu. This is the standard layout for most builds. Following are the home menu categories that will help you start streaming right away:
- Magic Dragon
- The Oath
- TV Tap
The Magic Dragon build comes with just a handful of Kodi video addons. This keeps the build lightweight. You only need one or two good addons to stream. Here are some of the preinstalled addons:
If you want, you can explore and install more addons from our list of Best Kodi Addons. You can use our guide on how to install any addon over a build.
The Magic Dragon Kodi build is not the greatest build you might have used. However, I still like it for its simplicity and small size. The build gives you a more interactive interface for Kodi. At the same time, it comes with quality preinstalled addons that ensure you have enough options to stream your favorite content.
The build barely weighs 150 MB, so it is perfect for low-RAM devices, including your FireStick, Android TV Boxes, etc. It does come with some popular addons. This means there is enough material to let you stream just about whatever you like. It is a good build. Give it a go!
