Alright, that is my entire deck that I call Burning FIRE. The 2 main focuses for this deck is 1. burn my opponents LP, and 2. summon big monsters in the form of Firedog, Tiger, and XYZ monsters. Here's what I thought of when the word burn came to mind.
"I feel like making a Burn deck, but I don't  want to follow the band-wagon in building either chain burn or stall burn. I want to use burn in my deck but I also want to utilize the monster effects that use the burn ability. I also want to summon out big monsters so that I dont have to focus soully on burn to win. Best of all, I want to fill the monster line-up with almost all FIRE attributes."
So Richie, this is basically how I've formed my idea. The main focus is using Cylinder, Fire Art, Counter, and Solar Flare as my main point for burn power. The back-up portion Is summoning Firedog and Tiger for great xyz plays, as well as tribute fodder for Fire Art. Those 2 and Slicer are basically my big monsters of the deck. Turtle is there to help get counter in the grave or to summon Flare Dragon. Veiler is in here cuz its necessary this format, and Gorz is in here as a last resort if my fld becomes empty during the duel. For spells, I have basic staples except Storm, and I have 3 forms of draw power and consistency in the form of Avarice, Duality, and Upstart. The instant fusion helps me out with an extra xyz material that I may need during the duel and it works perfectly in the deck. The lvl 5 fusion is for if I Mind control or reborn my opponents lvl 5 monster, and as fire art fodder.

Well that's my deck Richie. I know thier's a lot of info on how the deck is suppose to run, and towards its main point "Burn." It was all worth it because I didn't want to follow the popular burn builds but come up with my own varient that makes sense. So with everything I've said and mentioned, are there any suggestions u would make for this deck? As well as what Side deck would work with a deck like this? (Side deck wise, I only have Cyber dargon and Chimeratech inthere for Geargia's) Remember though the main focuses of this deck:
1. Burn my opponent
2. Summon big monsters
Thank you Richie and hope you can help. My budget is around $40.

NOTE: Cards I DO NOT want in the changes are Marshmallon, Lava Golem, Wave Motion, or anything that doesn't relate to my specifications.

Answer
HI, Steven, I'm doing well, thanks, just kind of busy. I'm always happy to help though. So here's the decklist with all the changes I would make.

Monsters - 17
3x Flamvell Firedog
2x Flame Tiger
1x Flamvell Magician (Searchable by Firedog and UFO Turtle, good for access to Lv 8 Synchros, and can be used for Rank 4 Xyz too.)
2x Laval Lancelord (GREAT search with Firedog if you just want ATK power, it's a good tribute for Fire Art especially if you used its own effect to summon it, and you can use it for a Rank 6 Xyz with Rekindling, which I'll also be adding.)

2x UFO Turtle
2x Solar Flare Dragon
2x Effect Veiler
1x Gorz the Emissary of Darkness

Spells - 10
1x Dark Hole

1x Heavy Storm (I'd have to say this card is necessary in the current format)
1x Mystical Space Typhoon
2x Pot of Duality
1x Rekindling (Great card for Xyz plays or as a last resort)
1x Mind Control
1x Instant Fusion
1x Swords of Revealing Light (To get your field set up if you just need a quick moment)

Traps - 13
1x Solemn Judgment
2x Dark Bribe
3x Magic Cylinder
1x Ceasefire
2x Spiritual Fire Art - Kurenai
2x Mirror Force

Expertise

I can answer most questions on card rulings, and I will also do deck fixes to the best of my ability. I am best with X-Sabers, Infernities, E-HEROES, Crystal Beasts, and Dark World, but I will do other deck fixes as well. Please let me know what your price range is. That way I don't go telling you to make a deck that you can't afford a lot of the cards for. If your deck is not meant to run how most decks of its type do, or if it is your own new type of deck altogether, please give a short explanation on how it's meant to work. I can also build you a deck from scratch, but please tell me if there's a specific way you'd like it to work or if there's any combos you want it to make use of. Also, I will ONLY fix/build decks for Advanced Format play. Please do NOT ask me questions about the OCG, pricings on cards, or how much you should sell a card for, as they are not my areas of expertise. NOTE: Sorry guys, I have exams coming up, so I won't be answering any questions for a week or two. Thanks for the patience.
