If you want to make casting magic harder you need mana damper, and/ may still need enough area to get the mage inside it.
MagicResistance does add to your resistance (for which I think Affects others would be needed) but it also lowers the effective skill for those casting a spell on a target with it. Not just resisted spells but also healing, information, etc.
