Why... why it won't work with Tribute Burial. It doesn't even say it misses timing... just doesn't work at all.

Because you don't read the card you mentioned.

Agreed. Just read the damn card effect more carefully.
The last part of tribute burial says this:
"also you cannot Special Summon monsters for the rest of this turn."

yeah burial doesn't let this guy unbanish
plus Giant Rex is not lv 7 or higher so isn't Tribute summoned
This archetype is the most healthy F2P I've seen actually. FAR FROM DUMB OTK, but very competitive and it teaches you how/when to chain your traps.
This guy and evilswarm salamandra must be friends or part of the same gang because the have such insane synergy together man !

Love using them together. I also try to combo with generation shift to send giant rex to the graveyard to get another from my deck while Salamandra is on the field
I love how this guy returns to the field whenever your opponent tries to banish it LOL XD

I even have 11. If I only cards will be available once again, I didn't grind hard last event. Like Flare Resonator, I almost cried before the event ends I got my 3rd one BUT it was available again the next Jack event. Dumb Konami. Lol
This + DD Sprite = turn 1 Armades

Who the hell thinks that skill even needs to be nerfed?
since it's a hard once per turn should I run just 1 copy?

No use 3 if you want to use this it’s still a 2000 Attack monster with little draw back
You can use Gold Sarc from the Silent Magician EX Structure Deck to banish Giant Rex staight from the Deck to Special Summon it and it won't return to hand after 2nd Standby Phase since it isn't banished anymore.

This. It's not a hard counter to Amazoness, at most it only means they have to ram into this thing instead of attacking directly.
Rip banish control and spellbooks. You'd have to defeat this guy by battle with a empowered waifu but good luck about the backrow.
