Tribute Fodder

You can tribute these monster to lessen the cost of summoning Simorgh. Additionally since they are both WIND monsters that count as 2 tributes, Simorgh's effect that returns 2 cards on your opponent's field back to hand will be triggered making full use of Simorgh's effect and possibly gaining advantage depending on what you return to hand.


Simorgh, Bird of Ancestry counts as a Normal monster while in your hand, therefore you can use Ancient Rules to special summon him. Or you could use Mausoleum of the Emperor to summon him by sacrificing your LP. Because he was summoned this way Simorgh cannot use his removal effect. But the advantage is that you special summoned a big monster to your field with minimal cost whose effect allows you to summon other high-leveled WIND monsters with reduced cost.

Mecha Phantom Beast

Mecha Phantom Beasts are easily able to generate tokens to be used as tribute for summoning Simorgh. Since these tokens are WIND attribute Simorgh's removal effect can be activated.

Reduced Cost

With Simorgh on the field you can summon WIND monsters for 1 less tribute making level 5 and 6 WIND monsters summonable for no cost. For WIND monsters that are level 7 or higher, you can summon them with only 1 tribute. Here are some good monsters that you can summon with this reduced cost.

You don't get the return 2 cards effect if you special summon with Ancient Rules.

To be fair, the anon doesn't specify which effect. You'd still get the "1 less tribute" effect even if it was special summoned via Ancient Rules.
You can use dynatherium because is wind type.

More like because it is a level 8 monster and thus requires 2 tributes normally.

The normal monster part is just to make Wind Effigy actually has something to work with.
I think this is star for the new EX structure deck
