Mystra has one portfolio, but her portfolio happens to be one of the most important of all (Magic). That's why she has the potential to be that powerful. Or that's how I understand it.

The Chosen do as Mystra directs, and Mystra wants Thay left alone as a social experiment; how will it play out? See Tyrants In Scarlet (available for free at the DM’s Guild) for why Thay is special and why she leaves it beHer patience with the excesses of any wizard isn’t infinite; she will step in if she believes the actions of Szass Tam or anyone seriously threaten Toril or the Weave as a whole. (There’s a reason the Dread Ring scheme failed.)#Realmslore

You kind of make it sound like in your view, the gods are the “game masters” of the world, setting up villains to test heroes 🙂 The gods want entertainment just as much as the rest of us. Unfortunately for us, WE are their entertainment.#Realmslore
