Question
Hey Exo, We're about 3 or less weeks away from the new list, and all I want to play are fun decks till it arrives. I'm having a blast with my Batteryman, and now I want to also play my Chaos Dragons. So I can use some help updating my current build to where it incorporates some of the new cards released from Duelist Alliance? I've seen a few CD builds where some had added in some Burning Abyss cards, and some had Shaddols. Anyway here's my current build of Chaos Dragons.

Chaos Dragons 40
Monsters 30
1x Black Luster Soldier-Envoy of the Beginning
2x Chaos Sorcerer
1x Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
1x Dark Armed Dragon
1x Eclipse Wyvern
3x Lightpulsar Dragon
2x Darkflare Dragon
2x Tour Guide From the Underworld
1x Night Assailant
2x Card Trooper
3x Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress
3x Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
1x Blackwing-Zephyros the Elite
1x Honest
1x Gorz, the Emissary of Darkness
1x Tragoedia
2x Maxx "C"
2x Effect Veiler

Spells 10
1x Allure of Darkness
1x Book of Moon
1x Charge of the Light Brigade
1x The Seal of Orichalcos (I feel I don't go into the Extra deck that much, so I thought why not)
3x Mystical Space Typhoon
3x Pot of Duality

Extra Deck 15
1x Armory Arm
1x Armades, Keeper of Boundaries
1x Black Rose Dragon
1x Crimson Blader
1x Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss
1x Leviair the Sea Dragon
1x Number 17: Leviathan Dragon
1x Number 30: Acid Golem of Destruction
1x Abyss Dweller
1x Queen Dragun Djinn
1x Maestroke the Symphony Djinn
1x Number 61: Volcasaurus
1x Photon Strike Bounzer
1x Inzektor Exa-Beetle
1x Gaia Dragon, the Thunder Charger

Side Deck 15
2x D.D. Crow
2x Electric Virus
1x Maxx "C"
1x Dark Hole
2x Nobleman Crossout
1x Soul Drain
2x Breakthrough Skill
2x Face-Off
2x Stygien Derge

Well there you have it. So all I'd like is a fresh update for my Chaos Dragons to where it incorporates some of the new stuff that's been released? Along with that, the budget for this deck is no holds bar for playing this deck on DN/DevPro, but could you also place in some budgetable selections along side the actual cards placed in the new build? Quick example of what I mean.
*EXAMPLE
1x Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss (Budget Selection)

Otherwise it can just be no holds bar for the entire update. Hope you can help Exo, and I await your response.

Answer
I'm honestly not sure how I'd incorporate either of the Shaddoll or Burning Abyss themes here, since those are really completely different decks (since both themes have a core 10-12 cards...

I'd make a modern Chaos Dragon deck look like this:

3 Lightpulsar Dragon
3 Tour Guide from the Underworld
3 Kuribandit
3 Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress
3 Maxx "C"
2 Darkflare Dragon
2 Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
2 Tragoedia
2 Chaos Sorcerer
1 Eclipse Wyvern
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
1 Red-Eyes Darknes Metal Dragon
1 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
1 Dark Armed Dragon
(28)

3 Solar Recharge
2 Soul Charge
2 Forbidden Lance
1 Charge of the Light Brigade
1 Allure of Darkness
(9)

3 Vanity's Emptiness
(3)

As I think this build takes advantage of the metagame the best.

Drabyss doesn't really work, since the Chaos Dragons don't really add anything there.
I suppose I'd do it like this:

1 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
1 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
1 Caius the Shadow Monarch
3 Lightpulsar Dragon
3 Tour Guide from the Underworld
3 Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss
3 Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss
3 Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss
3 Mathematician
3 Destiny Hero - Malicious
(24)

3 Rank-Up Magic - AStral Force
3 Supply Squad
1 Foolish Burial
1 Allure of Darkness
(8)

3 Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
2 Raigeki Break
2 Vanity's Emptiness
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
(8)

And aim to Rank up Photon Strike Bounzer into Felgrand. That seems very inconsistent though.

Draddoll probably looks like this:

3 Lightpulsar Dragon
3 Shaddoll Beast
3 Shaddoll Falco
3 Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress
2 Shaddoll Hedgehog
2 Shaddoll Dragon
1 Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
1 Shaddoll Squamata
1 Eclipse Wyvern
1 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
1 Dark Armed Dragon
1 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
(22)

3 Shaddoll Fusion
3 Soul Charge
3 Solar Recharge
2 Super-Polymerisation
1 Polymerisation
1 Charge of the Light Brigade
1 Foolish Burial
1 Allure of Darkness
(15)

3 Vanity's Emptiness
(3)

Normally I'd put a budget suggestion next to Vanity's Emptiness, but there really isn't anything that's even close - you just need Emptiness in order to play this format.

I'd give those 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.
