New BP03 Reveals - Stegocyber and Typhoon

A new article was posted today detailing some of the thought process behind Battle Pack 3. Here are two of the ten World Premiere cards in the set that were mentioned along the way:

1. "Tribute Monsters were the focus of BP2, so we’re shifting to a new experience this time.The only exception is the new Level 6 Stegocyber card. Stegocyber can revive itself from the Graveyard, though, so you can use it for a discard cost and still get it on the field without Tributing. So it’s only a partial exception."

2. "Typhoon is a Normal Trap Card with this effect:
Target 1 face-up Spell/Trap Card on the field; destroy it. If your opponent controls 2 or more Spell/Trap Cards and you control no Spell/Trap Cards, you can activate this card from your hand.

As a zero-cost Spell/Trap removal card, Typhoon is excellent in sealed & draft play for eliminating your opponent’s Equip Cards and Continuous Spells/Traps (like Miracle Fertilizer and Pyramid of Wonders).

In constructed Duels, Typhoon can be an excellent card to add to your Deck, and is especially effective against the new Pendulum Monster Cards, at the start of a Duel. If you have Typhoon in your starting hand, and your opponent starts their turn by playing a Pendulum Spell Card, then another Pendulum Spell Card, they now have 2 Spells/Traps on the field, and you have zero. You can immediately use Typhoon from your hand (even though you haven’t gone yet) and destroy one of their Pendulum Spells before they get to Pendulum Summon."
