My [2005-12-17] Comment to Joe Joyce's 'Two Large Shatranj Variants' proposed some variants with the following replacements. I do not recall the Great Rook or Great Bishop ever having been used in a game. [EDIT] Key McKinnis used a wide selection of pieces in Drop Chess (2000), including the Demon (Great Rook ) and the Pope (Great Bishop).

Marshall/Chancellor replaced by Great Rook = Rook + Afil + Ferz

Cardinal/Archbishop replaced by Great Bishop = Bishop + Dabbabah + Wazir

Queen replaced by Centaur = Knight + Wazir + Ferz
