FLIP MONSTERS: TWO-FOR-ONE
The reason that Flip Effect Monsters are so good is that they serve two uses. First, they have a cool Spell or Trap-like effect. But at the same time, they count as a monster.
This gives Flip Monsters a two-for-one effect. Even though you are getting their Flip Effect, they still will stop one of your opponent's attacks when attacked and flipped face-up.
If a Flip Effect Monster is not destroyed by an attack, you can Tribute it during a following turn for a Tribute Summon of a high-level monster. If it is not attacked, you can Flip Summon it next turn, get its Flip Effect, and Tribute it that same turn.
