I was just going to answer that that's all she's after in Barks's
stories at least, when Torsten's answer where he mentioned
"Bottled Battlers" (scripted and pencilled by Barks) arrived.  Well,
Magica is really on her way to cut her way into Scrooge's money bin
with the help of that acid ("formula X" which contains acid from
sulphurated Vesuvian fumaroles and boilings from the feet fuzz of
abominable snowmen among other things).  It isn't said that what it's
Old Number One she's after, but presumably it is.

If you take non-Barks stories into account there are lots of them
though.  I remember stories unworthy of being remembered where Magica
is just one witch among the others (mostly Madam Mim and Witch Hazel)
when they've had regular witch meetings once in a while.
