Well what I like about your idea is that it actually takes into account the containment field used to deliver the payload (plasma). The first key to any sucessful weapon is in the delivery system. If you can neutralize the delivery system, you can often neutralize the weapon.
To even get a weapon like a plasma bolt to work, a new kind of physics needs to be invented. We already know the Covenant have shields, an extension of that technology is something I could call solid energy physics. Basically it moves to a fifth state of matter called "stasis". A state in which energy takes on the properties of solid mass.
Imagine actually being able to control time in an area so that it moves at a slower rate within a containment field. Ordinarily when something is frozen, it loses energy until it becomes solid. The idea of stasis is that no energy is lost only that time is slowed way down.
For simplicity let's call this time containment field a "time bubble". If I pulled the pin on a grenade and put it in a time bubble just as it exploded. The grenade would still be exploding but at a very slow rate relative to those outside the time bubble. Maybe it would take millions of years for the explosion to be observed.
As soon as this time bubble is disrupted, the grenade would explode in real time. If I could move this time bubble across distances, I would have a delivery system for a weapon, an awesome weapon.
Anyway, for Covenant plasma weapons to work the way they are described, I figure that the containment field, although magnetic in nature, might actually be manipulating time. I don't believe any normal strength magnetic field could disrupt this thus using conventional magnetics to disrupt the plasma bolts would be mostly ineffective.
Just some thoughts.
