Take 2 (#21): Twisting The Aces ('the aces' being an anagram of 'teaches')
"Torture doesn't work" lol
Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Kudos!
I'm stuck right now. It seems like I should be able to get #11, but it's just not coming out right.

#17 is right.. I didn't notice I'd mucked up the letter count, I need to be more careful. I've double checked the others and found no similar mistakes.

#21 - arrgh! I spent ages trying to find anagrams from 'invisible thread'!

So now we have remaining:

2) Skip tea for a his and hers alternative. (2,3,5,4) (not magic themed)
6) This baby in his pram says, "Find my shillings." (6)
11) Take in mixed messages - hold it! (6,4)
12) It's hard to keep it together, pursuing a career in fashion. (4,5)
14) Military division prone to error and indiscipline. (4,5)
18) It's bent, so lack of resources disrupts. (10)
20) Royal achieves a milestone in ladies' boxing. (8,5)
23) E (13) (probably not magic themed, awaiting confirmation)

Still stuck on #11.
Surprised you haven't got #6 yet.

Aha! I wasn't sure as your other magician solutions used both names.

If you like, I can rewrite my remaining clues a little to add a few hints and remove some of the red herrings.

I see you've solved all of mine. You need a fresh batch!
Well how about
24) Sly grins embraced our hearts when they showed us this at our wedding. (7,5)
25) The combo of gin and red hair is endlessly fascinating for this magician. (7)

Those are more British style I think.

And I'm ready for more hints or revised clues, cause I'm stuck.

Oi! I did 24!

OK then, here's the unsolved list so far, revised, edited and in some cases rewritten:

2) Present about his and hers alternative taken with two teas and zero filling. (2,3,5,4) (not magic themed)
11) Mixed intake - hold it! (6,4)
12) Being in fashion is enough to make one come apart. (4,5)
14) Military arm prone to error and indiscipline. (4,5)
18) It's bent, so lack of resources disrupted. (10)
20) Eastern royalty achieves a milestone in ladies' boxing. (8,5)
23) E (13) (probably not magic themed, awaiting confirmation)
24) Bent DNA leads to unhealthy eating.(6,6)
25) Sly grins embraced our hearts when they showed us this at our wedding. (7,5)
26) The combo of gin and red hair is endlessly fascinating for this magician. (7)

NB, I previously confirmed that 23 is NOT magic themed. See my earlier post from a couple days back.

#25 - linking rings?

I have 'flaming' for #26, but it doesn't fit the magic/magician aspect
