Yu-Gi-Oh/Blue Eyes Deck Build

Question
Hi Exo,

My younger brother-in-law has recently got into yugioh.  He has a pretty good understanding of the game and is now wanting to start out with a deck of his own.  He was given the Blue Eyes structure deck from a friend and has used it, but wants to improve it.  he is a pretty competetive player, so he's hoping you can make this deck competetive.

So hope you can help him out as much as you've helped me in the past.

Thanks,
Kevin

Answer
The best deck built around Blue-Eyes is Blue-Eyes Ruler, which is a deck that use The White Stone of Legend and Blue-Eyes White Dragon as a Draw-Engine that fuels huge Soul Charge and Dragon Ruler pushes.
While this is not the cheapest deck ever known, the blow should be cushioned by the reprints in this year's Tins.

There are 2 ways of going about this, one focusing heavily on Blue-Eyes, while the other takes a more Traditional Dragon Ruler look:

3 Blue-Eyes White Dragon
3 Maiden with Eyes of Blue
3 Kuribandit
2 The White Stone of Legend
1 Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos
1 Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms
1 Tidal, Dragon Ruler of Waterfalls
1 Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders
1 Debris Dragon
1 Flamvell Guard
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
(18)

3 Dragon Shrine
3 Soul Charge
3 Upstart Goblin
2 Cards of Consonance
2 Trade-In
2 Forbidden Lance
1 Silver's Cry
1 Burial from a Different Dimension
(17)

2 Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Solemn Warning
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
(5)

2 Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon
1 Colossal Fighter
1 Crimson Blader
1 Divine Dragon Knight Felgrand
1 Gaia Dragon, the Thunder Charger
1 Hieratic Sun Dragon Overlord of Heliopolis
2 Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack
1 Number 11: Big Eye
1 Number 15: Gimmick Puppet Giant Grinder
1 Orient Dragon
1 Scrap Dragon
1 Star Eater
1 Stardust Dragon
(15)

And the other:

3 Kuribandit
2 Blue-Eyes White Dragon
2 The White Stone of Legend
2 Flamvell Guard
1 Card Trooper
1 Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos
1 Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms
1 Tidal, Dragon Ruler of Waterfalls
1 Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders
1 Debris Dragon
1 Mythic Tree Dragon
1 Mythic Water Dragon
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
(18)

3 Upstart Goblin
3 Dragon Shrine
3 Cards of Consonance
3 Soul Charge
2 Trade-In
1 Sacred Sword of Seven Stars
1 Burial from a Different Dimension
(16)

2 Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
1 Solemn Warning
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Breakthrough Skill
(6)

1 Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon
1 Colossal Fighter
1 Crimson Blader
1 Divine Dragon Knight Felgrand
1 Gaia Dragon, the Thunder Charger
1 Hieratic Sun Dragon Overlord of Heliopolis
2 Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack
1 Number 11: Big Eye
1 Number 15: Gimmick Puppet Giant Grinder
1 Orient Dragon
1 Scrap Dragon
1 Star Eater
2 Stardust Dragon
(15)

I'd have a play around with these decks, and see which you prefer. The second is much more competitive, but the first sticks a lot closer to the Blue-Eyes theme that you already had going.
Give them 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.
