Covert Demonic Dragon, Magatsu Typhoon
I don't really get this card. I honestly don't. He Legions with Magatsu Storm, and as your reward, on Legion, all your Magatsu rear-guards that were on the field when you performed Legion gain 5k and the ability to boost, until the end of the turn. As his normal skill, you can discard one card from your hand to clone a unit on your vanguard circle, and then the clone goes to your hand at the end of the turn.
He'd be so much better...if it wasn't for the fact he can't really play nice with Magatsu Storm's Limit Break on the turn you Legion. You have to gather the Magatsu units on the board before you can, and to be honest that's not something that can be done optimally all the time. I mean, riding Typhoon on Magatsu Gale doesn't let you reap any of the benefits of the ride chain, for example, and you do have to micromanage your copies because of how it functions, which is a pain in the ass (see my review of Magatsu Storm for details).
He can set up Stride next turn with his normal skill...and that's about it, basically. It's cute, but the best Stride you can go into first is Kagamijishi, which does better when all your rear-guards aren't entirely vanilla, like Charcoal Fox. 
Because of general lack of synergy with your Stride options such as Homura Raider and because he doesn't do anything to solve the temporary advantage problem, I cannot in good faith run this over Yasuie. I'll say why tomorrow.

So apparently there was a mix-up, so I missed yesterday's list.  On the other hand, we now have the next two weeks planned out.  Yay for mixups?
Anyway, Magatsu Typhoon here is a throwback Legion to Magatsu Storm, shockingly enough.  Pretty obvious from the name.  Anyway, what does Typhoon boom do here?
The non-Legion ability isn't bad, if you get to this before your opponent is at grade 3, you can discard anything to fetch a copy of Typhoon and use it for Stride purposes the next turn, so hooray for benefits?
The Legion ability.  Urgh, THAT'S a major disappointment.  If they had just added "during the turn this unit Legion" rather than "When this Legion", it would have been *SO* freaking good!
Why?  Bushi, why?  Murakumo NEEDS good support, this was a GREAT way to give them good support, but you decided "nope, can't let them have it!"
Especially since Magatsu Storm's Limit Break gives him +3000 and calls two copies of himself to the field.
So, to review, had the skill been "during the turn this unit Legion", a CB2 and a discard of 1 would have gotten you three Magatsu units, probably all Storm, to the field, with +5000 power each and the ability to boost?  Yeah, THAT would have been AMAZING!
But, as it is, it's a waste of space, sadly.  Might be interesting, at least it allows for easy Stride.
...Really, don't even bother using it for much else.
