Putting is different to driving and winds, moisture/rain and temperature influences things so there are so many requirements all year round that any single putter cannot cater for each need. Two is a stretch. OS, straight and US is much better and having that many also allows for some latitude with disc selection based on tackiness when the maximum is needed.
For those with great skill, equipment is a small issue. Any old trash can lid will do. Players like me NEED great equipment to compensate for lack of skill (probably most of you too, btw).
For every category of disc I want at least 3 discs at the different stability levels (OS, Straight & US). Since putters are the most important discs, I carry 3 Magnets. Then at least 2 more Rattlers (only 2 because there are no overstable Rattlers).
I try not to carry any discs which need particular environments to be useful. So all my putters are tacky (none of that slippery candy plastic) and none in bad colors (white, black, tie-dye). So aside from worry that a particular well broken-in disc might be too susceptible to cracking in bitter cold, I don't need to change my bag for anything other than glow rounds (or to add risk discs or testers).
BTW, the latest run of Rattlers is a totally new plastic blend which seems to me to have just a little bit of candy mixed in. It still feels tacky and actually very good. One made it immediately into the bag. This run contains a first for Rattlers: BRIGHT pink. I love bright pink, the easiest color to find.
