Default The Best 1, 2, or 3 Tribute Monsters?!?

I plan on making a frog engine deck to tribute the best monsters in the game.
I want to put a list together of the best ones of each type.
I'm on a budget so Obelisk won't be in it, but list some others.
I don't want cards with lackluster effects like Kuraz the Light Monarch, just the better ones.

1 Tribute:
Dark Dust Spirit
Caius the Shadow
Mobious the Frost
Raiza the Storm
Zaborg the Thunder
Jinzo
The End of Anubis
Sea Lancer
White-Horned Dragon
Worm Warlord
Kaiser Glider
Dark Ruler Ha Des
Vanity's Fiend
Salvage Warrior

2 Tribute:
Ancient Gear Golem
Light and Darkness Dragon
Jurrac Titano
White Night Dragon
ESPer Star Sparrow
The Supremacy Sun
Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi
Yamata Dragon

3 Tribute:
Obelisk
Slifer
Beast King Barbaros
The Wicked Eraser
The Wicked Avatar
The Wicked Dreadroot
Destiny Hero - Plasma
Arcana Force Light Ruler
Arcana Force Dark Ruler


Alright, so what are some other monsters with nice effects??

If you're running Frognarchs, the best things to run are Monarchs and LaDD. If you run any 3 tribs, it would have to be really worth it, like Obelisk. I suppose Beast King has his uses as a versatile beater as well as he three sac effect, but something like Moisture Creature you'll want to stay away from. You have 3 MST and Heavy Storm and Frognarchs shouldn't be running heavy backrow in the first place.

Dark Dust Spirit and Kaiser Glider are fairly useful.

I forgot about Dark Dust Spirit. I actually pulled that out to put this together. My friend used it the other day and I was like wth?

I know Moisture Creature is dirt.
I'm not paying for Obelisk though.
I really want to run Plasma against my friend's Chaos Dragon's.

And I know Light and Darkness is essentially staple now, but I don't like how it doesn't do well if my opponent already has a high atk monster.

Obelisk is hardly more expensive than Caius and getting a reprint soon anyway.
Unless you mean the cost to summon him, then why even bother asking about three tribute stuff?

If you're worried about your opponent having a bigger monster, then just run stuff like Forbidden Lance or Shrink. Drop it on their monster, summon LaDD, run over them. And that aside, other than Chaos Dragons, not many decks can easily run over 2600, especially considering it has built in protection in the form of negating anything.

Dark Ruler Ha Des as a 1-tribute monster is good. Negates effects of monsters it destroys in battle, including in the graveyard. Vanity Fiend (I think that's the 1-tribute one...) is also pretty solid.

The Wicked Dreadroot and The Wicked Eraser probably aren't worthwhile as 3-tribute monsters, nor is Dark Ruler. The others all have some form of protection from stuff other than battle which is vital for a monster taking so many tributes, and Light Ruler Heads effect is so awesome that losing the targeting protection wouldn't be a bother.

I run Plasma in a Junk Doppel deck as an extra tech, Junk Synchron + Doppelwarrior generates 3 tributes for its special summon easily and it can be a life-saver in the right situation.

Alright, I may be able to get Obelisk, we'll see how everything goes.
Ha Des is pretty cool too.

Ha Des is better in a fiend deck, it's alright on its own, but you can't reborn it.

Obelisk isn't even expensive...

If you want a usable 3-tribute monsters, use Barbaros.

Kuraz is not useless. You can use Call Of The Haunted to summon him, have him target itself and CotH. Both are destroyed and you draw 2 cards. You can also have him trigger effects that can miss the timing safely as drawing and destroying are simultaneous.

As standalone monsters I'd say
- Caius the Shadow Monarch (1)
- Light and Darkness Dragon (2)
- Obelisk the Tormentor (3)

All other tribute monsters require an deck engine built around them. I excluded Nomis and Semi-Nomis from the list since they can't be tribute summoned.

You can go around and play Salvage Warrior, but when they Veiler and you're stuck with a 1900 don't say I didn't tell you the card was bad. Plus he forces you to run a tuner who isn't Effect Veiler.

WHOA. Why are you so good. I might just run 2x Kuraz and 3x Calls just for that in my Lightsworn Warrior deck rofl. Then I can add 3x reckless greedy foor insanity.

Resuce Rabbit is a bad card it forces you to play normal monsters and if it gets veilered you're stuck with a 1000 monster who can't do anything.

When Rescue Rabbit goes off the effect is far more powerful than Salvage Warriors, Salvage Warrior also requires a tribute where Rabbit does not. Rescue Rabbit can be abused with Leviair where Salvage Warrior cannot. Also when they Veiler Rabbit you can set your backrow, if they can't kill Rescue Rabbit in that one turn you can pull it's effect off next turn.

Horrible logic.

I may try a Salvage Warrior for kicks.

I know Obelisk isn't that expensive. I'm just that cheap and have a high level of not care. I will probably get him though cause he is good and the best 3 tribute, but til then I'll run one of the 2 cent 3 tribute monsters.

It wasn't putting any form of logic in it.

It was parodying how a card is worthless because it gets veilered and makes you run non veiler tuners. Even then you can run veiler and make 6's with it easily.

Look at the other cards posted and get a grip on yourself.

You haven't even posted what "good" tribute monsters there are but rather decided to whine about something inane.

Supremacy Sun is actually really good for a double tribute. Once illusionsnatch comes out, both Dark Driceratops and Tongue Twister become very viable since you can summon one, summon illusionsnatch and either bounce illusionsnatch back for birdman and make locomotion r genex to draw 2 with Tongue Twister, or make Evolzar Solda with Dark Driceratops and illusionsnatch. However, it's only worth it for a fun deck.

If you run galaxy queen's light, use Fog King and Beast King Barbaros for your lvl 7's and 8's. They make top decking rank 7 and 8 as easy as possible. You can also use that old Koitsu card with Mother Grizzly to make rank 10's easily.

I'm not sure what Level Six you would want to make with Salvage Warrior other than Brionac. Gaia Knight is inferior to Caius and the other generic level sixes are to my recollection quite awful. It's a bad card because you have to tribute for an effect that isn't worth the inherit neg -1. I don't know it it's been mentioned yet but Vanity's Fiend is the epitome of a good tribute monster.

1 Tribute:

White Night Dragon
ESPer Star Sparrow
The Supremacy Sun

3 Tribute:
Slifer
The Wicked Eraser
The Wicked Avatar
The Wicked Dreadroot

How many of these cards on the list are "better than Caius"

Who said you had to Synchro with Salvage Warrior?

Dsicard Level Eater for Quickdraw Synchron.
Tribute Summon Salvage Warrior and use it to revive Quickdraw.

Some would be debatable if they were easier to summon.

Dark Dust Spirit is better in some situations
Jinzo is better against trap heavy decks
Ancient Gear Golem would be fairly decent if it could be gotten out with Geartown
The Supremacy Sun is much better than people think. Who likes dealing with a recurring 3000 beater every turn? Sure it can be bottomless'd or solemn'd, but so can caius
Plasma would be just as good if it could be reborned after being special summoned like Chaos Sorcerer.

The lack of Vanitys Fiend on the list is dissapointing.
