Magic Man is secretly a “good guy” and he either does not consciously know it, or does not want others to know about it.
In “Freak City” when he turns Finn into a foot, he purposely made it so the others who were turned into other body parts, who, without Finn, would have still hated each other and themselves, work together, and in the end decide that they are stronger and happier together. This lead to the group of “others” becoming a strong team.
In the episode, “All the Little People”, by giving Finn miniature version of everyone, he taught Finn about how some things work out and some don’t, and to avoid things he that don’t. So really, Magic Man has helped teach lessons, even though no one, even he, realizes it.
