If they're on & connected in series the'll surely affect each other ... If they're off they shouldn't affect the tone if they have True Bypass but most of the dist pedals I've played with affect the tone slightly when they're off .

Here's my main point... Let's say you have the MT-2 and the MM in series , and you're playing rhythm through MT-2's distortion while the MM is off ... To switch to the MM's distortion ALONE for a specific solo or something you'll need to turn the MT-2 off and the MM on , so you'll need to press both pedals for that which would take some time ... If you're the only guitarist in the band , you're in big trouble dude !

To overcome this problem , you can connect both pedals in series with an A/B box that switch between them... But this way you won't be able to play them both On and in series unless you use other more complicated methods for wiring.
Even if you do so , what if you need to change the settings on your pedal during a song for a specific tone? You'll have to get another identical one with different settings and use the A/B box method.

If you want simple tones stick with pedals , if you want different distrotion types from your gear which you obviously seem to like , go for a nice multi-effect processor that will solve all the problems you have in your mind digitaly without having to go through complicated wiring and expensive stuff you'll have to buy with analogue gear.
