Mystical Space Typhoon x3, Heavy Storm is legal, Giant Trunade is Banned, and even three copies of Breaker are legal if you want...remember when Magic and Trap destruction was in short supply.  Hell, I'm not sure I do anymore, either.  You know what Mystical Space Typhoon does, you know how good it is, but do you need to use three of them?  Honestly, I don't really see why you would use three.  It's just a Deck spot you're going to give up and while the ability to use three is welcome, it just doesn't see necessary.  Use one, maybe even use a second and see if it gets in the way.  Side an extra one, whatever. 

Ratings:

5/5 both Formats, at the very least, it's a great set

Art:  5/5

Mystical Space Typhoon

We all know what this card does. It's one of the simplest cards in the game. It's always been at 1 with Heavy Storm, until that balance was disrupted and Storm was banned, putting MST at 2, which was one of the weirdest things for veteran YuGiOh players to experience, as MST has always been at 1 (past Ye Olde YuGiOh). Now Heavy Storm is back AND Typhoon is at 3, leaving most players wondering, "Did the ban list department forget they brought Storm back?"

MST at 3--along with Heavy Storm--means this format will only have normal spells and chainable traps. Even Mirror Force and Dimensional Prison are now sub-par cards, being replaced by Threatening Roar, Compulsory Evacuation Device, Call of the Haunted (with Sangan), and even Jar of Greed. The logic behind "chainable traps" is that you can activate them if the opponent tries to destroy them, meaning their destruction is semi-wasted and you still get your trap's effect.

Most people are going to run this at 3 with Storm, while others will use 2 and side the third. What will you do?

5/5
Art: Soooo familiar.
Remember, kids: "Destroy" doesn't mean "Negate".
Tomorrow: A misrepresentation of the graphical depiction of gravity's effect on the universe.

Mystical Space Typhoon

Today’s card is one of the more interesting movements on the ban list. Mystical Space Typhoon was at 1 for a very long time for good reason. Last format consisted of a lot of decks running a lot of spells/traps. Since Trunade and 2 MST’s couldn’t really handle all of the backrow, some people played Dust Tornado. Because of the amount of backrow last format, it seems Konami wanted the opposite this format be bringing us Heavy Storm and a 3rd MST. Mystical Space Typhoon is a very good card and is already proving to be very annoying. It’s a simple 1 for 1 card that you can set if you want. Good card is good.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 4/5

Mystical Space Typhoon

It looks like Yu-Gi-Oh! is taking a step back into the game's younger days. BLS-Envoy is back, as everyone probably knows by now, Heavy Storm is also back and Mystical Space Typhoon was brought back to three. This, along with Heavy Storm, has cleared out the backrow problem. What was once a bustling populace of Spell and Trap Cards is now a barren land where you will rarely find more than two cards. It seems like Konami wanted to eliminate the "Herp-Summon a good monster, Derp-Set 4-5 backrow" play that was all too common in the current format. I think, though, that unlimiting MST wasn't that great of an idea. Instead of controlling the backrow, the new ban list destroyed it. Still, MST is as good of a one-for-one card as it used to be and will continue to see a lot of play.

Traditional: 4/5

Endphase MST? Who hasn't heard that? Well, next format, it shall be more prevalent than ever.  
 
Back-row? Where? Heard that there was a Heavy Storm coming through here. Better leave quickly, lest you get hit by a Cyclone.  
 
Last format was all about Traps and Monsters. Next format shall be all about Spells and Monsters.  
 
Who didn't see that coming? 
 
What more is there to say? 
 
Wanna know some cool moves to do with this card?!
 
Here you go:
 
Opponent activates a Field Spell Card while you have one on the field already: CHAIN MST -You keep your Field Spell!
Opponent Attacks with a Monster equipped with an Equip Spell/Trap Card: CHAIN MST -Hopefully your monster has more ATK points....
 
Opponent uses *someones* Royal Oppression: CHAIN MST
 
-Has to stay on the field for it's effect to resolve properly.
 
Opponent activates Dragon Ravine's effect: CHAIN MST -Has to remain on the field to resolve it's Effect.
 
Opponent has only one Set Spell/Trap Card and Ends their turn (say it with me): ENDPHASE M-S-T!~
 
There are countless more! Which ones do you know?  
 
Ratings:
 
Traditional: 3/5 (Oh Dear)
Advanced: 5/5 (Lets kill the back-row, one MST at a time) 
 
-The storms picking up!
