It depends on the style of music.

But I'd recommend you an EQ and a Tuner one.

I only really need 3

Wah
OD
Tremolo

But if it was five, I would add either an EQ, Delay, Compressor or Tuner.

My two cents.

1.Tuner
2.Overdrive

Those two are really the only ones that are almost universally used. Rounding out stuff I use-

3.Delay
4.Reverb if your amp doesnt have it.
5. Compressor

For me it's
1)tuner (dosn't have to be a pedal but it's the most useful )
2)Distortion (my amp really dosn't get an further then a slight od so i actualy run two dist. both digitech hardwire. the regular gets me more classic tones from night ranger-metallica and then the heavey metal pedal for LoG and opeth tones)
3)od (i use it for O.A.R. types of tones)
4)wah (great for just messing around with solos or i use it alot to play power chords and slowly move the wah up and down create a cool phase sort of sound)
5)chorus (use it for when im doing upper fret licks much like that short thing in the verses of laid to rest)
Yeah i'm bored so i had to explain them
