It was truly an amazing and mystic/mystical experience when the downpour stopped when our High Priest arrived at the airport.

Which is the correct adjective?

Thanks.

Either one. I like mystical better because it's always an adjective; it seems clearer. Mystic can also be a noun; as an adjective it sounds as if someone couldn't be bothered with the last syllable, like when people use disconnect in place of disconnection.
