Now we get to a solid Gusto card.  Musto, Oracle of Gusto, is one of the few Gusto Monsters to have a respectable attack score for a Monster of its Level.  This is a Wind, Level 4, Psychic Monster, with 1800 attack and 900 defense.  Once per turn, you can target (note target) a Gusto Monster in your Graveyard, and then another face-up Monster on the Field.  The Gusto Monster is shuffled back into your Deck, and IF successful, the second Monster you target, its effect(s) are negated until the End Phase.  That's fun, IF your opponent has an answer to that, they can stop you, or simply allow you to attempt to destroy the Monster.  I mean, being able to prevent an effect(s) is a great thing, if even only for a short time.  This is the easiest Gusto to use thus far, this week, by far.

The next Gusto monster we will look at is Musto, Oracle of Gusto. One thing I would like to point out is that the Gusto monsters are all Wind monsters so you can use them with Quill Pen of Gulldos. They should have called it Quill Pen of Gustos because it works perfectly with Gustos monsters. It puts two of your Wind monsters back into your deck and bounces one of your opponent’s monsters back to their hand. Quill Pen is a great card in this format with all of the Xyz summoning being conducted now days.
 
Musto, Oracle of Gusto is actually not a bad card. You can use it to negate the effect of  your opponent’s Galaxy-Eyes, Cataster, Utopia, Leviathan Dragon, Tragedia, Stardust, King Tiger Wanghu, Thunder King, Shi En, Vanity’s Fiend, and the list goes on. Then Emergency Call or Call of the Haunted your tuner, Synchro summon and attack those mean old monsters.
 
With 1800 attack, Musto has some decent stats. You could use a Forbidden Lance to help it stay on the field or even Safe Zone to keep it on the field to use its effect for several turns. I really like this card in a Psychic/Gusto deck. I still do not see Gusto type decks being top tier so my rating will reflect that.
 
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 3/5


Angelic Nightmare

Musto, Oracle of Gusto

Wind/ Psychic/ LV 4/ 1800 ATK/ 900 DEF

“Once per turn: You can target 1 "Gusto" monster in your Graveyard and 1 face-up monster on the field; shuffle the first target into the Deck, and if you do, negate the second target's effects until the End Phase.”

This card is very interesting, the “Effect Veiler” of Gustos.  The reason why I say like Effect Veiler is because the monste’rs effect is negated for the turn in any location it may end up in. For example, if the opponent summons a Stardust Dragon or E-HERO Absolute Zero and you target it with Effect Veiler, the opposing monster cannot resolve its effect if it attacks into a Mirror Force. Other cards that can be devastated by this card are Legendary Six Samurai- Shi En, Ally of Justice Catastor, E-Hero The Shining, Naturia Beast, Naturia Barkion, etc.

In short, this card has a great negation effect, but it is very week against cards like D.D. Crow, Transmigration Prophecy, and other similar cards that target the graveyard. Also, because of its typing, Psychic monsters have decent support.

Advanced: 3/5 (Gusto only)

Traditional: 1/5

Psycho

This is the highest-ATK Level 4 Gusto, making him one of their strongest attackers. (In fact, not counting Synchros and Xyzs, he is the third strongest Gusto...which is rather depressing.)

He allows you to recycle a Gusto from your Graveyard into your deck, shouldn't be too debilitating a cost (technically, it's not even a cost at all). This is important to upkeep the Gusto circle of life of using Egul to summon Winda to summon Gulldo and by using Gulldo you can go back-and-forth between Winda or just summon Egul again... Anyway, my point is they summon straight out of the deck and Musto lets you keep on doing that. Alternatively, Musto can return a Synchro or Xyz back into your Extra Deck, which takes little fuss. You should not have problems not being able to fulfill the first part of Musto's effect.

Oh yeah, and Musto can negate the effect of any faceup monster. This only has slightly less utility than Forbidden Chalice, but at least Musto recycles your Gustos and has a sturdy 1800 ATK to work with. Anyway, like Chalice, his effect lets him crush Marshmallon. Alternatively, he can weaken Wind-Up Zenmaines or Stardust Dragon to allow other cards to trump them. More importantly, he can remove Utopia's effect to make the Daigusto Sphreez OTK possible. Furthermore, he can also target your own monsters, but this doesn't have much utility. I suppose if there are no other monsters on the field, he can target himself just for the sake of returning a Gusto from the Grave to deck.

Finally, being a Psychic monster, it is plausible for Gustos to splash many Psychic support cards (such as Mind Over Matter, Psychic Overload, Hyper Psychic Gunner) without being slowed down.

Trad: 1/5 (perhaps if there's ever a FTK combo that involves returning a Gusto from your Grave to your deck)
Adv: 3.1/5 (a good, old-fashioned Gusto supporter)
Aesthetics: 3.7/5 I am MUSTO the PRIEST! Hear me PREACH!
