I' m not sure how the Magura setup works but that looks like a slave cylinder to me. If only the rod is bent you should be able to disassemble it and straighten it without too much trouble.

I haven't worked with a Magura setup either, but I have lots of experience with a variety of hydraulics. If that is a picture of the actual assembly you have, it looks like the bend should be in the thinner section of the rod. The slave cylinder is made so that pulling the lever causes the actuating rod to be drawn into the cylinder. So, the important question is, is the actuating rod bent at a point where the bend will move past the seal and bushing in the end of the cylinder? If not, just straighten and use it. Remember, it pulls, so it doesn't need to be perfectly straight to be strong enough for the job. Even if it is bent where it will pass the seal, you might have some luck with straightening it. If the cylinder leaks or binds, you'll know it didn't work.

Ask a dealer to help you find a contact for Magura if you don't hear from someone else.
