Default Substitute for northern brewer hops?

Ok I just mashed in and thought I had some Northern brewers hops but I don't. I have Fuggles , Tetnager, Hallertau Herbsucker, Czech Sazz, Cascade and Magnum.
I am making a California Common. The recipe calls for 1.25 oz northern brewers,
.25 oz of cascade at 20 min and .75 of cascade at 5 . Any suggestions?

The Magnum should work, according to this substitution table.

After That - Czech Pilsner
Primary - Humboldt Hop Rod (4/24)
Primary - NOT Wheat AG SNCA (5/5)
Secondary -
Conditioning - SNCA Clone (3/3),

The hop reference chart in the back of Beer Captured suggests Northdown, Hallertau Hersbruck or Perle as a substitute, so your Hallertau might work, too.
