Attack Pattern: Magikoopa makes him from an egg. He waits several rounds and then uses Big Bang to cause medium damage to your whole party.
Basic Strategies: Most attacks will work. Unless you need to use a couple of turns on healing, you should probably just stick to regular attacks: it will only take 5-6 timed hits to kill him.
Advanced Strategies: Fire attacks will destroy him quickly if you're running out of turns. There's no way to block his regular attack, just make sure nobody has really low hit points. Odds are he'll never get a chance to attack anyway.
