The condition is that exactly one of these cards has to be a Tuner Monster - a new sub-category of card, similar to how Union Monsters are a sub-category of Effect Monsters. For example, if you control a Level 3 Junk Synchron (a Tuner) + a Level 2 Doppelwarrior (who isn't a Tuner), you can send them both to the graveyard to Special Summon Ally of Justice Catastor (a Level 5 Synchro Monster) from your extra deck. Generally, the Synchro monsters are far more powerful than the monsters in your Main Deck, and a lot quicker to summon - Junk Synchron's effect is to special summon a level 2 or lower monster from your grave, so you can summon powerful Synchro monsters with one card, meaning that Tribute Monsters were largely abandoned when Synchro Monsters came out. The other advantage is that since you can never draw a Synchro Monster, you'll never have it sitting around in your hand uselessly - they can never be dead-drawn. Plaguespreader Zombie is the iconic Zombie tuner - not only can it revive itself from the grave, but it can be special summoned by Zombie Master, which allows you to make large amounts of Level 6 Synchro monsters very quickly. Xyz Monsters are arguably either a lot simpler or a lot more complicated than Synchro Monsters. Any time you have two or more monsters that are exactly the same level, you can stack them on top of each other (called 'overlaying') and place an Xyz Monster who's Rank is the same as the monster's Levels on top of the stack. For example, if you control Zombie Master (a Level 4 monster) and use his effect to summon Goblin Zombie (another Level 4 monster), you can stack them together to summon Number 37: Utopia (a Rank 4 monster that needs two Level 4 monsters to summon). Once you've overlayed into an Xyz Monster, the cards that you used to summon it effectively become counters - the Xyz Monster will send them to the grave to activate their effect. They don't count as monsters, and they don't count as on the field - they're more like ammunition for the monster's effects.
