Applied Phlebotinium
No, it's not "magic". Such a mundane term! In our reality it's called "madgicke".

A combination of Xtreme Kool Letterz and Psmythe Psyndrome, Applied Phlebotinium (note the added "i", as in the British spelling of "aluminium") is what you get when creators, in an attempt to be original, invent alternate spellings for common words, especially ones related to science or magic. Examples include Warhammer's "orks" and Master of Orion's "phasors", though the latter could be considered a subversion, as "phasor" is a mathematical term predating Star Trek's "phasers".
