My first "?" stats card! ...And a rather worthless one, sad to say. The only places I'd ever use this card are in a Lightsworn deck or a Chaos Dragon deck that uses Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress. Getting this monster out is a major undertaking and even then, the stats are up to chance. This is a fun theme deck card only. Way too hard to summon only to most likely bomb horribly.

Traditional: 1
Advanced: 1

Philosophical
Psycho
The only card in our GX line-up that I haven't heard of before. In the manga, it was originally a fusion of Jaden's Winged Kuriboh and Chazz's L&D Dragon, in the anime...it was never seen, and in the real world...it has only recently been released.
 
Now, I have no idea when you will ever run a Deck abundant with Light Dragons and Light Fairies in it. Lightsworns are a possibility, and Ma'at can even help mill for them, but there is definitely no way I'm giving up, say Gragonith or Shire for someone that MIGHT get 3000 ATK.
 
And you really need a card like Fruits of Kozaky's Studies or Big Eye (the latter could make an interesting spin on the Chaos Deck) to really maximize Ma'at's potential. Otherwise, she might as well be a card that sacrifices a Light Dragon and Light Fairy to mill off the top three cards of your Deck.
 
Quite honestly, the BEST chance I can see for Ma'at's potential is deck full of Chaos monsters and the new Light/Dark Dragon playstyle, along with Big Eye, Dimensional Alchemists, maybe splash in some Lightsworns and Shire if you REALLY want to capitalize on that Lightsworn theme. And then if you can't get a good enough attack boost for Ma'at, Xyz her off for Rank 10. Another note of interest is that a second Ma'at can sacrifice an already-played Ma'at.
 
Traditional: 1/5 (it could help with the Makyura OTK, but seriously, HOW wil you summon her??)
Advanced: 2/5 Pretty cool, but in the end, it's not the easiest of cards to summon and when you do, she doesn't do that much.
Aesthetics: 5/5 I can see Millennium Items like WHOA. She deserves to be an Egyptian God more than Obelisk the Tormentor or Slifer the Executive Producer ever would be (but it can be argued Slifer, in its true form, is really Osiris).
