Yu-Gi-Oh/Slifer Deck with a twist

Question
Hi!

This might be a tough one, but I figured I'd ask. I want to build a Slifer deck that uses Slifer as its primary form of offense but I would like to incorporate Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End as a backup plan in case I need to get out of tough spots. I love dragons, but I wouldn't mind going the fairy route since I have tons of fairies in binders collecting dust. If you could give me a few suggestions in that regard, I would appreciate it.

Format: Traditional

Answer
Fairies and Slifer don't really integrate that well - both of the need pretty dedicated engines to make them work, and that doesn't really fit with Traditional's minimalist "It only takes 2 cards to kill you" attitude.

This is full Traditional - a pile of banned cards with a theme tossed in:

2 Slifer the Sky Dragon
1 Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End
3 Master Hyperion
3 Mystical Shine Ball
2 The Agent of Creation - Venus
2 The Agent of Mystery - Earth
2 Herald of Green Light
1 Sangan
1 Witch of the Black Forest
1 Destiny Hero Disc Commander
(18)

3 Upstart Goblin
1 Pot of Greed
1 Graceful Charity
1 Painful Choice
1 Monster Reborn
1 Soul Charge
1 Premature Burial
1 Harpie’s Feather Duster
1 Snatch Steal
1 Change of Heart
1 Brain Control
1 Raigeki
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Delinquent Duo
1 The Forceful Sentry
(17)

1 Crush Card Virus
1 Imperial Order
1 Ring of Destruction
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Torrential Tribute
(5)

This next one is Semi-Trad. That means that it's advanced with Banned cards added in where they directly help (in here that means they're good for drawing cards or making monsters to tribute)

1 Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End
2 Slifer the Sky Dragon
3 Master Hyperion
2 Archlord Kristya
3 The Agent of Creation - Venus
3 Mystical Shine Ball
2 The Agent of Mystery - Earth
3 Tour Guide from the Underworld
1 Sangan
(20)

3 Mystical Space Typhoon
2 Valhalla, Hall of the Fallen
1 Soul Charge
1 Pot of Greed
1 Graceful Charity
1 Monster Reborn
1 Premature Burial
1 Change of Heart
1 Snatch Steal
1 Brain Control
1 Harpie’s Feather Duster
1 Pot of Avarice
(15)

1 Imperial Order
1 Ring of Destruction
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Sixth Sense
(5)

I'd have a go with those, 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.
