A Deck based around FIRE Dragons with no Blaster/Burner...  Probably not going to go that far...
There are bits of this that are worth keeping though, so I'd go like this:

1 Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8
2 Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6
1 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
3 Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos
2 Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders
2 Burner, Dragon Ruler of Sparks
1 Reactan, Dragon Ruler of Pebbles
3 Masked Dragon
1 Flamvell Guard
1 Delta Flyer
1 Exploder Dragon
3 Effect Veiler
2 Maxx "C"

3 Gold Sarcophagus
2 Instant Fusion
2 Forbidden Dress
1 Heavy Storm
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Book of Moon

3 Royal Decree
2 Breakthrough Skill
1 Solemn Judgment

The Blasters here help you to get to Horus as Quickly as possible, and the mini-Dragon Counterparts will even provide you with Tribute fodder to summon them.
After that it's all about Defending Horus from Monster Effects and Traps. Traps aren't very common right now, but monster effects have never been better, which necessitates 3 Effect Veiler and 2 Breakthrough Skill to shut them out (Note that if you activate Breakthrough Skill's Graveyard Effect, it's not negated by Royal Decree)
Forbidden Dress rounds out the Protection Line, giving you outs to effects that Skill/Veiler can't negate, like Atlantean Heavy Infantry and Opposing Blasters.

Instant Fusion reprises its original role here, but Gold Sarcophagus is so much better now that it can remove Blaster - as this will trigger Blaster's Effect, allowing you to search Horus directly from the deck, and then get Blaster in 2 Turns anyway. Blaster can also fetch Flamvell Guard, Masked Dragon and Burner this way.

I'm aware that you might not be able to afford an Extra deck like this yet, but this is what you're aiming at:

1 Scrap Dragon
1 Crimson Blader
1 Colossal Fighter
1 Black Rose Dragon
1 Orient Dragon
1 Gaia Knight - the Force of Earth
1 Ally of Justice Catastor
1 Armory Arm
1 Number 11 - Big Eye
1 Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack
1 Maestoke the Sympony Djinn
1 Queen Dragun Djinn
1 Gachi Gachi Gantetsu
1 Darkfire Dragon
1 Alligator's Sword Dragon

A Side Deck might look like this:

3 Electric Virus
2 Puppet Plant
2 Tsukuyomi
2 Droll and Lock Bird
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
3 Imperial Iron Wall

Give that a go, 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.
