    That sounds very American Gods.

    An interesting premise mind you. But I feel the power creep would be totally out of hand.

    Power creep could definitely be a problem. Too many highly skilled wizards running around for centuries longer than normal is certainly an issue, especially if there's much room to grow past Dumbledore's canon skill. But it could work if there is a limit to how powerful a wizard could get in the context of duels. I imagined wizards hitting glass ceilings and then transitioning into more esoteric magic that's less directly useful in a fight. Horcruxes should also mean power creep is less important. If you and your opponent are practically immortal, straight up fights are going to matter less. Duels between the really powerful wizards should be rare events. Indirect attacks to discredit a wizard's concept or supporters are the more common conflicts.
