Mystical Space Typhoon

Welcome to cookie-cutter week!...kinda. This week we're looking at cards everyone's going to be running or will consider running in the new Advanced Format.

Today's is pretty simple.

It's an AUTOMATIC inclusion in pretty much EVERY DECK EVER. There are very few decks that couldn't benefit from the choice destruction of one Spell or Trap on the field.
When it was unrestricted, it was the reason people ran so many chainable traps like Waboku and Mirror Force and Magic Cylinder hardly ever worked. When it was limited, it was considered a staple. It still is.

Unless you're playing some weird combo deck that is hurt by having another spell card (maybe a Magical Merchant deck with like 35 monsters?) you run this or you're a noob. 1 for 1 trades are king right now; Smashing Ground is run in 3's, DDAs are another rampant 1:1, and this is an important 1:1 in the spell-killing department.

5/5 all.
 

Coin Flip
What is there to say? This card is among the greatest. You have no idea what kind of trouble this card has caused.

It is because of Mystical Space Typhoon's restriction over a year ago that people TO THIS DATE pop Hallowed Life Barrier and Des Wombat in their decks to stop the onslaught of the oh-so-rare burn deck which they couldn't take on otherwise.

This card was, in the past, arguably the most important card in a deck outside of Pot of Greed and Imperial Order. It turned Mirage of Nightmare into a BEAST of a card drawer, and nullified Imperial Orders and Call of the Haunteds and Snatch Steals and Premature Burials and even opposing Mirages of Nightmares, turning them into dust before they even had their limelight. It was the most effective counter since Scapegoat against the ubiquitous Drop Off.

Quick-Play Spells are powerful, friends. Book of Moon, MST, and Scapegoat aren't restricted because they're pretty. Enemy Controller doesn't sell for as much as it does because people think it's a funny card. QP Spells are the most surprising cards in the game. They act as traps even on your very first turn, or just a super-fast spell. Go into Battle Phase, hit a Cyber Dragon to defense with Controller or Book and ram it with D. D. Assailant. The difference is huge.

This card has been important in the game's evolution, and is most definitely staple material.

General: 5/5
 

Dark Paladin
Today we review one old card that is quite good, and doesn't really deserve more than a sentence or two. Mystical Space Typhoon is hillariously powerful, and is also restricted, which actually boosts its power. In short, about every single deck needs the one you can use, because the spell/trap destruction options aren't great. In short--USE IT!!

Ratings:

4.95/5 all around, obviously (I'd really not like to give out 5's ever again if possible, because no card should truely be perfect.

Art: 3.5/5 We have far too many weather related picture cards, and I favor Heavy Storm best.

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
