If this card is in your hand: You can activate this effect; you cannot Special Summon monsters from the Extra Deck for the rest of this turn, also Special Summon this card, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Vassal Token" (Thunder-Type/LIGHT/Level 1/ATK 800/DEF 1000) to your opponent's side of the field in Defense Position. If this card is Tributed for a Tribute Summon: You can activate this effect; you can Tribute Summon 1 monster during your Main Phase this turn, in addition to your Normal Summon/Set this turn. (You can only gain this effect once per turn.) You can only use each effect of "Mithra the Thunder Vassal" once per turn.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Mithra the Thunder Vassal continues our week of Monarch helper cards. Same stats as yesterdays card along with a simiar effect(s).
 
Special Summon her at the cost of giving your opponent a defense position token isn't a bad trade. This monster will always be able to Special Summon itself (with the exception of your opponents field being full). If you Tribute this card for a Tribute Summon you gain the extra Tribute Summon Eidos gives you. Special Summon Mithra, Tribute Summon a Monarch, then tribute that Monarch for a Mega Monarch.
 
Eidos can bring Mirtha back to your hand and offer you two monsters immediately to tribute if you are in dire straights. This kind of synergy can lend its power to other Tribute-based decks like LaDD, though it seems that these were seemingly made to bring back the monarchy.
 
Mirtha may be a better card than Eidos because even in turn one this card is useful and won't waste your Normal Summon. You have your Normal Summon, then a potential second Tribute Summon for the turn. Even the token in defense position could be changed to attack mode via a card effect and open up life point damage, especially if you have more than one monster on the field.
 
Alongside the other helpers we'll go through this week, as well as Treeborn Frog, Monarchs have more than enough support to help make them rise again.
 
Advanced-4/5

These stats are going to get very boring very quickly. Mithra the Thunder Vassal is a Level 2 Light Thunder-type monster with 800 Atk and 1000 Def. Once again, the 800 Atk and 1000 Def stats are what make this monster searchable in the Monarch deck. I wish this was Level 1 to make One for One more useful, but getting Edea is good enough. While both Squires are commonly played in the new Monarch deck, Mithra might be played because her effects include some downsides. 
 
Mithra Special Summons herself and a (Level 1) token of herself to the other side of the field for no cost. Then you can't go into your Extra Deck for the rest of the turn. This effect screams to be abused against Burning Abyss, but Monarch decks don't really OTK and Domain of the True Monarchs should already handle them nicely. Anyway, the second effect is how you dodge Effect Veiler. If Mithra is tributed for a Tribute Summon, you can Tribute Summon one more time during your Main Phase that turn. Her first effect activates in the Hand while the second effect activates in the Graveyard. The usual combo is to summon Edea who summons Eidos who give you one extra Tribute Summon. Edea can be Veilered and will stop the whole combo. If Mithra is Special Summoned by anything, you can tribute her and then Tribute Summon again without worrying about Veiler. 

Monarchs are a new deck and some people are using Quantum cards to help with Tribute Summoning. Mithra is another good option to consider, but is not currently considered necessary, especially in a very crowded deck. 
 
Score: 4/5
Art: 3/5 A little too clowny for me.

So this week we'll be looking at the Vassals. Mithra is decent enough for decks that rely on high-level Monsters, especially Monarch decks (which I think this particular card was designed to support). The downside is that you can't Special Summon any other Monsters but this one on the turn you use its effect. But if you really need that extra Normal Summon to help turn the duel in your favor, then this is your card. 
 
I think the point of summoning a Vassal Token on your opponent's field was meant to serve two purposes: to block one of his/her Monster slots, and possibly to use that Token to summon a high-level Monster to your field, ala Soul Exchange. It doesn't say that specifically on this card, so I'll need confirmation from the experts. If I'm right, then that just makes Mithra even better. But if not, then it seems like a useless effect to me.

Score - General decks: 2/5;  Monarch/Tribute decks: 4/5
