reason why i said use frogs is simply because they can be reused again, again, and again even without a hand, clear field and top deck a monarch. i understand you want to maintain the monarch image, any cards added to the deck like level eater, tripple trion, advanced devoter old fashioned methods cost valuable time to set up
using swords of revealing (or concealing) and messenger of peace adds weak links to the deck but not a bad idea if running hamond [:thumbu:]. there is not really a way to protect them except
as for dandy lion, marshmallon, spirit reaper, battlefader, for monarch decks those are one-trick ponies that don't comeback pretty much screwed if you top deck, fader is the only one i would use.
biggest and most fatal weakness is the reliance of tribute summoning concept in today's meta standards itself absolutely no guarantee either card be alive next turn if you did not trip any traps same turn you tribute summoned it. either of those things happening is fatal doing it old fashioned way
only thing i would suggest is taking out 1-3 of spells or lancers that are in the sent deck and replace them with what you see fit.
i use frogs for monarchs simply because i don't trust the idea of simply using too many cards can easily be thrown away and stays in the graveyard and cannot be used again
adding token cards is not a bad idea either
[:confu:] i can't find anything wrong with frognarch besides the COMMON weakness of using monarch deck and frogs not suiting really suit the image of monarchs (that i understand) hard to argue if it actually works.
all i can say is wait for more supports and see what konami comes up with, normally they make alot of new gimmicks and surprises when reviving and polishing old decks
