There are quite a few Xyz monsters now, which are the new staples?

Hello, I have been collecting Xyz monsters lately but... which are the best by rank? Everyone tends to have Utopia as their staple rank 4 but what about the other ranks? I know that Zenmaines, Big Eye, Gachi Gachi an many others will pop up but are they staple monsters? Also, I am having a hard time finding a good rank 3 Xyz monster, any suggestions? I run Prophecy, by the way.

Zenmaines, Leviathan Dragon, Leviair, Utopia, Black Corn, Maestroke, C39 Utopia (debatable though), either Audres or Tiras, Photon Strike Bounzer, and Big Eye.

I think that;s good.

Archtype and Type Specifics usually have pride of place, but apart from them

Rank 1 - Slacker Magician (what happened to ShyNEET T_T)
Rank 2 - Gachi Gachi, Dark Mist
Rank 3 - Zenmaines, Leviathan Dragon, Acid Golem, Giga-Brilliant, and possibly Leviair and Chrononaut
Rank 4 - Utopia, Pearl, Maestroke, Blackship of Corn, Papilloperative, Shock Master and possibly Roach, Shark Drake, Lavaval Chain, Emeral, Cowboy, God Medallion, Disigma.
Rank 5 - Adreus, Tiras
Rank 6 - Ptolemys Messier 7, Bounzer, and possible Exa-Beetle
Rank 7 - Big Eye, Drago-SAC, Gaia Dragoon
Rank 8 - Heliopolis
Rank 9 - uh... both I guess.
Rank 10 - Superdreadnaught Rail Cannon Gustav Max

I wouldn't say Roach is a staple.

I think Volcasaurus and Temtempo are okay staple candidates.

that's weird, I swore I said possibly.
meaning it's an option in those kind of decks that specifically summon only 1 rank of monster.

Only in certain theme, not all. It's not like you can using Pot of Greed in each decks, as you have to missing that card out from Infernity for explain.

Rank 2 Daigusto Phoenix is a staple.
Rank 3 Temtempo is definitely staple.
Rank 4 Diamond Dire Wolf is a staple.

A staple would mean the card is usable in every deck that runs the required levels to make the Xyz monster in question.

Diamond Dire Wolf, while generic taking only 2 lvl 4 monsters, only has a useful effect if you control one of 3 types. It is in no way a staple.

Also Abyss Dweller could possibly go on the list of rank 4s.

Diamond Dire Wolf is a beast type.
