  • Great Attack stats.
  • Requires 1 Tribute monster for a tribute summon.
  • Potentially damages your opponent’s Life Points based on the card discarded from their hand.


  • This effect can only be used once, upon Tribute Summoning this monster.
  • The effect of random discarding from opponent’s hand is inconsistent and not highly reliable.
  • Weak DEF stats susceptible to position switching plays.


  • Gemini Imps can be used to negate Thestalos the Fire Monarch’s discarding effect.
  • Thestalos the Fire Monarch’s effect activates upon Tribute Summon, therefore if you activate Floodgate Trap Hole, it is chained to Thestalos the Fire Monarch’s effect but will not negate its effect.

Speed Summon

Treeborn Frog can easily be used as a single tribute to summon this card. Use Soul Exchange to use one of your opponent's monster as tribute. You can also use Enemy Controller tribute control effect to use your opponent’s monster as tribute.


Berlineth the Firestorm Vassal is the direct combo synergy to Thestalos the Fire Monarch, because Berlineth’s effect when it was used to Tribute Summon, will be triggered to banish 1 card from your opponent’s hand until the End Phase (Your choice of card). Pyrorex is able to be Special Summoned when your graveyard has exactly 5 FIRE monsters.





Mmhh... i think it's time to release erebus the underworld monarch and ehther the heavenly monarch toghether with mega monarchs
Really hoping for the rest of the monarchs...the would be way to powerful, but maybe limit them?

Red Dragon Ninja is better than Raiza.

the only advantage of red dragon ninja is that the set card cannot be chained. The choice of either putting it on top or on the bottom of the deck isn't really a big advantage since in most cases you want to place it on top of the deck anyway. Raiza IS BETTER than red dragon because for Raiza you do not have to include ninja cards (grave), and it can target face up cards too (unchainable anyway).

Justification for mobius at 3 guys must be in gold as he sounds like he knows nothing of the meta
I've loved monarchs as a card type for ages and when they got more support in the TCG I was so excited, but then they ended up too strong!
I'd like to see more of them, so far we've had Delg the dark monarch, Angmarl the fiendish monarch, and now Thestalos... if they ever give us mega monarchs we're doomed.

I think thestalos the mega monarch has been datamined , we may see it shortly this month
So I got this dude twice in 5 packs (I'm F2P and reset the box after every pack cuz I own a playset of nearly any SR). Is it worth to build a deck around him? I have no Berlineth, no Treeborn Drog and only 1 Soul Exchange.

If you have no other synergy cards then this is just normal 1 tribute beater, which, just so so; and its effect not so reliable without berlineth
