Returning from the previous title with the revamped Vault of Glass, Vex is a hot commodity within the Destiny 2 community since it was buffed this September, making it a must-have for high-end PvP activities such as Trials of Osiris or Iron Banner.
What made things even better for Mythoclast users was the Season of the Lost artifact, which boasts an incredible mod, Particle Deconstruction, letting Vex rack up damage over time, hitting a single target, making it perfect to melt raid bosses.
Vex Mythoclast will be nerfed in December
According to the senior community manager at Bungie, DMG, Vex Mythoclast will receive some tuning in December, as it's currently feeling a bit too "hot."
What these changes will entail still remain to be seen; however, DMG put fears of a complete nerf to rest, as they don't want to make the weapon completely useless.

Team is looking at toning down Mytho in the December patch. Goal isn't to nerf into the ground, but some tuning is felt to be in order.
Once we have more info, we'll let y'all know.
The weapon is still relatively hard to obtain, as it's a random drop from completing the Vault of Glass raid, so Bungie will likely make sure Vex Mythoclast remains a relevant weapon in Destiny 2.
On top of this, Particle Deconstruction, the mod that helps the Vex feels that much overpowered, will be gone once Season of the Lost wraps and The Witch Queen rolls around.
