The main change brought by agriculture was exactly that not every last person in the tribe had to spend a lot of time producing food. So, if this same change is brought about by magic instead, then the result will be similar: a class of people not working all the time. The clever and ambitious will be part of that class, and being clever and ambitious will become leaders. I.e., priests and kings.
