The only type of Physad with Spell Defense is a "Magician's Way" Adept (Priority A). See Magic in the Shadows p. 22. Sometimes called a Physical Magician.

The only active use of Sorcery for other Physical Adepts is for combat on the Astral Plane while Astrally Perceiving. Generally not worth it.

/Edit: from SR3 p. 168: "adepts do not use magical skills to perform magic in the same way as magicians (though they can use Sorcery in astral combat)"
