Tips, Related Cards, Rulings

Bypass protection

This card can remove cards even if they are protected by Card Guard or Magic Reflector, because it will not count as a destruction effect but as a remove from play effect.

Anki OTK

(This OTK is only possible because of a bug that doesn't half Anki's attack when he attacks directly with his effect and Titan Showdown is active.)
Use Cosmic Cyclone to banish a spell/trap card and reduce your LP to make Titan Showdown active, then used masked change to special summon Masked HERO - Anki. Anki is able to attack your opponent directly and because of Titan Showdown he will deal 5600 damage. If your opponent does not control any spell/trap card for you to use Cosmic Cyclone on, you can turn on self-chain. First activate Masked Change on your HERO and then use Cosmic Cyclone on Masked Change, you will still be able to summon Anki with your LP reduced for Titan Showdown.

Banish Key Cards

Some decks require spell/trap cards in their setup to run properly. Cosmic Cyclone is an effective counter against these types of decks because banishing their key spell/trap card usually means they have no interaction with it anymore and would need a to search out a new copy. Here are some spell/trap cards that can be considered key cards in their respective decks.

Set skill

Aside from the skills mentioned below, using Cosmic Cyclone can also get you closer to activating your Draw Sense skill and Bastion's multiple field skills.

Why is this limit to 3 when mystic typhoon is not?

because reducing own LP to certain amount can trigger skills

Tru reason: because before years this card was an instant invoker.
To think MST is now used more than this both in tournaments and according to konami own ranking duel links is a weird place

Well, Pendulums might change that. Or peskier backrow.
Ouchie MST.
Is the limit still necessary?
They literally limit this so decks can't trigger skill that often ( especially the one that add card), but now we had search skill that could be activated on the first turn
If MST was added, would it be better than this? It doesn't banish, but it has no LP cost. I know some decks abuse the LP cost for skill usage, but most decks don't rely on that anymore. What are your thoughts?

I use one of each, means I can banish with cards that are πŸ”₯in annoying to remove but use most where I wanna save lp
I'm not paying 1000 life points to banish a card that even when it's in the graveyard, my opponent isn't getting the card back.

HELLO Mystical Space Typhoon. No LP Cost

If you have 2 Lava Golems on your field, you're doing something wrong.

Bypasses all protections against spell/trap removal other than generic counter traps like Magic Jammer, and STILL makes the user of Brain Research Lab take mass damage despite all the setup made to avoid doing so, by simply activating one card? πŸ”₯.

Brain Lab is trash so lol

It’s not trash, it’s an excellent card, activates a lot of excellent effects. Psychics need to set up a lot of cards, so much bs that one single card takes the entire board down.

One of Konami's biggest mistakes. It is a staple engine for all of the toxic OTK decks in this game. They should errata the Quick-Play status away from it to re-balance it for Duel Links.

The mistake here is the way how skills get triggered just look at those cyber dragon with only 5 monsters in the deck and their pro move of cosmic cyclone their own fusion support spell

The skill mechanic must be reworked completely

I agree that Cyber Style must be reworked completely, but in the far future (again, FAR future), I can see Konami ALSO banned Cosmic Cyclone due to it affecting Skill design. They can't have an easier time designing new Skills if they have to keep accounting for Cosmic Cyclone.

If that happens, then I can see them giving us something like, 1000 gems as compensation, since this is a mainbox UR.

Cosmic cyclone is a balanced card. It is 1 for 1 exchange at the cost of 1000lp. Also, it is in limit 3 list, meaning that most tier decks cant splash it. I dont believe it will ever join banlist. There are far superior cards out there. Also, cc can be utterly useless vs no backrow decks, like lightsworn engine decks.

As for Cyber Style rework, they should have simply made the skill adds 1 copy of Cyber End and 1 copy of Cyber Twin into your extra deck at the start of the duel, but the skill will only activate if your main deck contains at least 10 different "Cyber" monsters.
Ah yes, the ace card of Aster Phoenix.

Yes. He likes to use it especially with his ace monsters, lunalight sabre and cat dancers.
