Galaxy Cyclone is another quality Spell/Trap removal added to the card pool.  It's like Night Beam and Nobleman of Extermination but instead of precluding or banishing the set card it destroys, it allows the player to get a 2-for-1 by also being able to destroy a face-up Spell/Trap card.  It may not be too big of consequence anyway, as Vanity, Warning, Torrential and soon-to-come Notice aren't chainable.  It's a neck to neck battle with Mystical Space Typhoon as to which is the Spell/Trap removal king.  MST has the advantage of being chainable (disrupting combos), being activated during the Battle Phase and destroying a set card during the opponent's turn (so they can't chain it during yours), but it also runs the risk of getting fried by removal when the opponent has no set cards to chain it too.
 
On the plus side, Galaxy Cyclone gets the graveyard effect for free if milled from the deck and can somewhat compensate if its discarded.  With Pendulums around, it becomes more interesting.  If the opponent is in a bad game state, you can use it to destroy one of their Pendulum Zones and leave them unable to complete the scale next turn.  You can also use it to free up a Pendulum space for combos, destroy a floater like Plushfire and give yourself an extra Pendulum monster to summon from the Extra Deck.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Merry Christmas everyone. The final card before the holiday break is the s/t destruction card Galaxy Cyclone.
 
While not as quick as MST, Galaxy Cyclone can destroy a set s/t, then on your next turn take out a face-up s/t. Forcing activation of the set s/t or merely destroying it is good. To be able to banish Galaxy Cyclone to destroy another s/t is a plus over MST. Your opponents Pendulum Zone is the likely target of this banishing, though there are face-up cards like Kozmotown that need to be dealt with.
 
It may be slow, but it is a great destruction option either in the main or extra deck. MST is still better though. The restriction to which position of card to target hurts this card.

We've reached the top 5! When previously reviewed it received a surprisingly low score of 2.8/5. I don't think it will score so low this time. Galaxy Cyclone is in a category that used to be called 'staples.' Is it absolutely necessary in every deck? No. However, every aggressive (not stall, burn, alternate win condition, etc) deck will at least consider this, in multiples, from now until forever. Will it replace Mystical Space Typhoon? No. Does it really do anything for the Galaxy Theme? Sorta, it is searchable with Galaxy Wizard. Just watch, if they ever limit MST again, the price of this card will shoot to the edge of the galaxy.

I debated with myself whether or not to put this on my List. I didn't, only because I had other personal favorites, but I can see why it scored such a high mark on this end of year list. Galaxy Cyclone is, to put it bluntly, a double-MST. It can only target a face-down Trap or Spell, but if your opponent can't triger in response, then that should be enough to wipe out his/her defense. Its second effect is even better; removing this from play lets you kill a face-up Spell/Trap, which means if your opponent is playing with Continuous Traps or Spells (Royal Decree, Level Limit Area B, and Swords of Revealing Light effectively just to name a few), then you've killed half of his strategy.

And also, it kills something else.... hm.... what was it? It was on the tip of my tongue.... something about Pentiums.... Platinum? …...Wait, now I remember: PENDULUMS! IT KILLS PENDULUMS!

Now I forget why I didn't put this on my list. Huh.

Score: 5/5 (I'd give it an even higher score for its versatility alone, but that would be cheating)
