I know my deck list isn't very good due to my limited collection, but thank you for taking the time to evaluate it!

Answer
There's actually quite a bit of stuff here that can be played in Semi-Compeitive decks, the issue is that there's an awful lot of stuff that competitive players wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole weighing it down...

The major place you'll have to spend in order to make this better is in your Extra deck. A Synchro-based deck is only as good as the Synchro monsters it can summon, and monsters like X-Saber Wayne and Red Dragon Archfiend simply don't compare to T.G. Hyper Librarian and Scrap Dragon...

As it is, everything that I'll be adding to your main deck has a common version, making them generally easy to acquire.

We'll keep this:

3 Junk Synchron
1 Sangan
1 Mystic Tomato
1 Caius The Shadow Monarch
1 Gorz The Emissary Of Darkness
1 Dark Armed Dragon

1 Monster Reborn
1 Allure of Darkness
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Mystical Space Typhoon

1 Solemn Warning
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Mirror Force
1 Bottomless Trap Hole

As we have the basics of a Semi-playable Dark/Chaos Synchro deck going on there.

We need to add a few more Mystic Tomato hits, and some monsters for Junk Synchron to summon too, so lets do this:

1 Caius the Shadow Monarch
3 Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
1 Mystic Tomato
2 Spirit Reaper
1 Blackwing, Gale the Whirlwind

That gives us both Junk Synchron targets in Ryko (which will also double as monster/Spell/Trap removal) and a complete Mystic Tomato engine.

Chaos Sorcerer Provides some much needed firepower in the late game, so we'll need another few LIGHT monsters to support it.
WE'll aslo add in Card Trooper to help with milling monsters to the Graveyard to satisfy it and Dark Armed Dragon's summoning conditions:

2 Cyber Dragon
2 Card Trooper
1 Chaos Sorcerer

For this as a monster line:

3 Junk Synchron
1 Sangan
3 Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
2 Mystic Tomato
2 Spirit Reaper
2 Card Trooper
1 Blackwing, Gale the Whirlwind
2 Caius The Shadow Monarch
2 Cyber Dragon
1 Chaos Sorcerer
1 Gorz The Emissary Of Darkness
1 Dark Armed Dragon
(21)

For spells I'll be adding the basics in, things that no deck should be without, as well as a few other things specific to this kind of deck:

1 Dark Hole
1 Heavy Storm
2 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Reinforcement of the Army
1 Book of Moon

For this:

1 Dark Hole
1 Heavy Storm
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Reinforcement of the Army
1 Book of Moon
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Monster Reborn
1 Allure of Darkness
(10)

Lastly, I'll be adding a few more copies of cards yiou're already playing to finish off your Trap line, and dropping in Solemn Judgment too:

1 Solemn Judgment
1 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Solemn Warning
1 Mirror Force

Giving this:

2 Solemn Warning
2 Torrential Tribute
2 Mirror Force
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Solemn Judgment
(9)

Which makes your final deck look like this:

3 Junk Synchron
1 Sangan
3 Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
2 Mystic Tomato
2 Spirit Reaper
2 Card Trooper
1 Blackwing, Gale the Whirlwind
2 Caius The Shadow Monarch
2 Cyber Dragon
1 Chaos Sorcerer
1 Gorz The Emissary Of Darkness
1 Dark Armed Dragon
(21)

1 Dark Hole
1 Heavy Storm
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Reinforcement of the Army
1 Book of Moon
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Monster Reborn
1 Allure of Darkness
(10)

2 Solemn Warning
2 Torrential Tribute
2 Mirror Force
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Solemn Judgment
(9)

Your Extra Deck is OK for the time being, but you should aim to make it look like this:

1 Junk Warrior
1 T.G. Hyper Librarian
1 Ally of Justice Catastor
1 Gaia Knight - the Force of Earth
1 Orient Dragon
1 Black Rose Dragon
1 Junk Destroyer
1 Stardust Dragon
1 Scrap Dragon
1 Thought Ruler Archfiend
1 Leviair the Sea Dragon
1 Number 17 - Leviaithan Dragon
1 Wind-Up Zenmaines
1 Maestroke the Symphony Djinn
1 Chimeratech Fortress Dragon
(15)

Give that a try, see what you think.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
