Continuing our look at Return of the Duelist cards, I'll note we're only looking at cards today and tomorrow, but I wish everyone out there a very happy Memorial Day.  Whether you happen to be working (like me) or not.  Today we look at Temperance of Prophecy, another excellent little Spellcaster for your Spellbook Deck.  This is a Level 3 Monster (obviously a Spellcaster, albeit a bit wicked looking) for some reason an Earth Monster (Spellcasters should about only be Light or Dark) and Level 3, with 1000 attack and defense.  But that's irrelevant as you're likely only using this for the effect.  You can tribute this card during your Main Phase (if you activated a Spellbook Magic card this turn, to Special Summon a Level 5 or higher, Light or Dark type Spellcaster Monster from your Deck.  Dark Magician instantly comes to mind here, but as for others...I mean, Chaos Command Magician maybe, I've seen him pop up occasionally in Spellcaster Decks.  Cybernetic Magician isn't a bad option, Different Dimension Master would be a fun choice, Dark Magician Girl, Prophecy Destroyer (another new Spellcaster from the set), which about wraps it up.  There are other options, but these would be the "best" but I'd say you're probably looking at Dark Magician or Prophecy Destroyer.  Anyway, in addition, you can't Special Summon a Level 5 or higher Monster during the turn you activate this effect.  Balances this card out I suppose, and you can still (obviously) Special Summon below that.
4.5/5 in the Deck (remember what I said about ratings last week)

There is one card that I purposely left out of Friday’s High Priestess of Prophecy review and that is Temperance of Prophecy, saving it for today. In a Prophecy deck, Temperance can easily summon the Priestess from you deck. It can also summon Prophecy Destroyer. As you can see, in a Prophecy/Spellbook deck, Temperance of Prophecy is a mainstay.
Temperance of Prophecy can also be used in many other Spellcaster decks, like Dark Magician, Gravekeeper’s (Visionary), and Spell Counter (Magical Marionette) decks. Some other useful monsters to use with Temperance and Spellbooks are Endymion the Master Magician and Sorciere de Fleur.
Temperance of Prophecy also makes for some good Xyz summoning. Use it to special summon a level 5,6,7, or 8 monster and then special summon Gagaga Magician as she is less than a level 5 monster, and then make her level the same to Xyz for that Rank. In a Prophecy/Spellbook deck, this means that we can Xyz summon Hierophant of Prophecy, Legendary Magician of Dark, or even Number 11: Big Eye. With Gagaga Magician and Temperance of Prophecy in a deck with Spellbooks, Xyz summoning becomes easy and quite fun.
While not powerful in itself and dependant on Spellbooks, Temperance of Prophecy is still a big boon to Spellcasters everywhere.
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5

Miguel Two things. 1: I hope you all are enjoying your Labor day, you slackers. 2: We have a mega short week, only today and tomorrow and shall return next tuesday. Number 6 on the list is one of top reasons why Dark Magician of Chaos will most likely never return. Temperance of Prophecy. A level 3 EARTH/Spellcaster with both 1000 for ATK and DEF. 
During your main phase, if you have activated a "Spellbook" Spell card previously this turn: You can tribute this card; special summon 1 level 5 or higher LIGHT or DARK Spellcaster-type monster from your deck. You cannot special summon another level 5 or higher monster during the turn you activated this effect.
Temperance is one of those cards that can add to a swarm of high level Spellcasters. Simply activate Spellbook of Life to get High Priestess of Prophecy, and then tribute Temperance to get another High Preistess/Dark Magician. Or use Spellbook of Power on another Spellcaster you control and tribute Temperance. If your opponent summons this guy, get ready cause he's not staying on the field too long. The best way to stop him are to use cards like Torrential Tribute and Effect Veiler.
Traditional: 4 
Advanced: 4.5
Tomorrow: Reading is Power.
