Good example of what you say in your profile. This piece started out banal and ended up brilliant.

Which begs the question: according to the Magen Avraham, why isn't this a superfluous redundancy?

That's the question. Maybe emphasis. But more likely because there are all different kinds of constant, so each alone wouldn't be as comprehensive as they are together.

we have a parallel construct in "la'ad ul'e olmai olamim [or olmai olmaya"," where no rephrasing is possible. Similarly, "l'olam ul'e olmai olamim."

It is possible that we are dealing here with olam hazeh and olam haba.
