So Spirit monsters need a boss monster which is powerful, doesn't return to the hand and overall supports the other Spirit monsters? Here is the card for them.
Lore: Cannot be special summoned, except by it's own effect. If you have exactly 4 Spirit monsters in your graveyard, you can special summon this card from your hand. Spirit monsters you control do not have to have their effects that return them to the hand activated. If this card is destroyed by a card effect, special summon 1 Spirit monster from your hand or deck (except "Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess"), ignoring all summoning conditions. A Spirit monster special summoned by this effect does not have to have it's effect that returns it to the hand activated.
The monster is based off Amaterasu the Sun Goddess, hence the name. It has 2900 ATK, making it the strongest Spirit monster in terms of ATK and cannot be returned to the hand. It gives you the choice of whether you want the Spirit monsters to return to the hand or not. When destroyed by a card effect, you can special summon any Spirit monster from your hand or deck, ignoring summoning conditions (Because most, if not all of them cannot be special summoned) but you cannot summon another copy of this card. The summoned Spirit monster doesn't have to be returned to the hand by it's own effect, but it's optional.
It can be tribute summoned, but the point of it is for you to summon it with it's effect. Speaking of that, you cannot special summon it other than by it's own effect/summoning conditions (You get the idea).
I wondered whether to give it 2700 ATK, or maybe 2800. But I thought that 2900 would be enough to compete with most boss monsters. As for the summoning conditions, it is basically a copy-paste of Kristya but with less support, Spirit monster decks cannot manipulate the graveyard as well as other decks, like Chaos Dragons for instance. Spirit monsters ain't my forte, but I am sure that there aren't too many notable Spirit monsters to run aside from Izanagi, Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi and Yamata Dragon. Meaning drawing this card too late COULD make it a dead-draw in some cases.
