This kinda looks like a Junk Synchro deck, but there's some much here that just shouldn't be in a deck at all...

You seem to just be playing Make-A-Big-Monster.dek in that your entire monster line is either monsters with an abnormally high ATK/DEF for their level, or are Tuners to summon Synchros...
A lot of the better Synchro monsters are missing too, which confuses me greatly - a Junk Syncho deck without Hyper Librarian and Armades is almost unheard of nowadays...

You need to Trade out monsters that are large for monsters that are easier to summon:

Ancient Gear Golem -> Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
White Night Dragon -> Gorz the Emissary of Darkness

Junk Synchro isn't about big monsters, it's about small monsters that combine to make big monsters with powerful effects.

I'd look at something like this as a start:

1 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
2 Quickdraw Synchron
3 Junk Synchron
3 Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
2 Doppelwarrior
2 Effect Veiler
2 Level Eater
1 Dandylion
1 Lonefire Blossom
1 Spore
1 Quillbolt Hedgehog
1 Synchron Explorer
1 Unknown Synchron
1 Treeborn Frog

2 Enemy Controller
2 Tuning
1 Heavy Storm
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Mind Control
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Foolish Burial
1 One for One
1 Reinforcement of the Army
1 Scapegoat

2 Breakthrough Skill
2 Call of the Haunted


1 Formula Synchron
1 Mist Bird Clausolas
1 Armory Army
1 T.G. Hyper Librarian
1 Ally of Justice Catastor
1 Armades, Keeper of Boundaries
1 Drill Warrior
1 Black Rose Dragon
1 Junk Berserker
1 Junk Destroyer
1 Scrap Dragon
1 Stardust Dragon
1 Colossal Fighter
1 Crimson Blader
1 Shooting Star Dragon

Finding Space for Shooting Quasar Dragon may also be a good idea if youre playing in a territory where it's legal.

Give it 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.
