    Hard!

    But I could definitely get by with the following

    Radial Tonebone Trimode for rhythm and lead od
    Timmy for light breakup
    Voodo lab tremolo
    Tech 21 Boost D.L.A.

    I just shortened my pedalboard down in this manner...

    -Boss Tu-2 Tuner...a mainstay for me
    -BBE Boosta Grande
    -Deltalab TO-1 overdrive (for now...but in this place is always an OD)
    -Rocktron Short timer delay.

    IF I needed to add anything else...it would be a toss up between my tonebender clone and a BBE mindbener for chorus.

    1. Compressor
    2. Delay
    3. Chorus
    4. Flanger
    Reverb and tremolo are taken care of on the amp, as is overdrive. The compressor is usually left on during the whole set. Delay is used frequently, chorus and flanger only once in a while. But they're useful, especially the chorus.

    If we're talking types of effects, then:

    -Fuzz
    -Boost
    -Delay
    -Vibrato

    But with actual pedals, I guess I cheat a bit:

    -Celestial Effects WTF
    -Red Llama
    -Two Timer
    -EHX Wiggler

    That seems to cover an unfair amount of ground for 4 pedals...

    For rock stuff:
    Wah (crybaby)
    EQD Bit Commander (for fuzz and synthyness)
    Delay (either a analogy one or a dd3)
    Malekko vibrato

    Alt. Country duo stuff:

    Delay (analogy)
    Octaver (oc3)
    Catalinbread RAH

    Ambient/floaty/experimental stuff:
    Wah
    Harmonizer (boss ps6)
    Delay (dd3)
    4track cassette recorder with loop tapes, not a pedal, but its an effect so I guess it counts, I don't wanna cheat! Hehe
    But usually I play psych-blues rock with a couple more pedals... But not a huge board...

    I kind of laughed when I only saw two guys who had a tuner as one of the four.
    If you be giggin' you better have a tuner in the mix.

    Polytune Mini
    Wampler Black 65
    Timmy
    Wampler Faux Analog Echo

    Which btw is actually what I use live.

    While there are many tuner stompboxes, tuning the guitar isn't really an "effect". By this logic, a powerstrip or Voodoo Pedal Power is an "effect", too.
