When you pull the lever is their hydraulic pressure (i.e. the pads are clamping the rotor)? If that's the case then the system doesn't need to be bled.  It sounds to me like you are not getting any friction between the pads and rotors. Bedding in the pads and rotors is a key with any system but I'd recommend doing that before riding the brakes off road.  With a new system, you'd generally do a series of short hard stops down a hill (completely letting off the brakes in between) and you can add a bit of water on the pads/rotors to aid with the process.  I've never used the Trickstuff rotors but they have lots of surface area so I don't see why you'd have any issues bedding the system in with Magura pads.  If you've already put a lot of brake dragging into the pads and rotors I'd very lightly sand both with water and a rough grit paper and then start the process again.  Hope that helps.
