Well, I decided to try it out for you tonight using Uber Wife's character. Granted she's Level 90ish, but this was the deck I used, which was full of many non-90ish level spells. In fact, the whole thing was link, sun magic enchants, tower shield, heckhound, fire minion, satyr, pixie, and fire elf spamming.
She's also wearing a pet that casts fire blades and uses Spritely and I think is still sporting Waterworks gear.
I took out Belloq first . . .
. . . and then his minion.
