Question
Hi Exo, with the new ban list I was wondering if you could help me out, restricting Soul Charge and bringing back Raigeki sounds fun, but I'm afraid I'll need a little help with my deck. Right now my deck looks like this:

3 Red-Eyes B. Dragon
3 Red-Eyes Wyvern
1 Alexandrite Dragon
1 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
1 Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos
1 Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
1 The Calculator
1 Flamvell Guard
1 Dread Dragon
1 Debris Dragon
1 Red-Eyes B. Chick
1 Baby Dragon
(17)

3 Dragon Shrine
1 Dark Hole
1 Soul Charge
1 A wingbeat of giant dragon
1 Swords of revealing light
1 Solidarity
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Foolish Burial
1 Burial from a Different Dimension
1 Sacred Sword of Seven Stars
2 Silver's Cry
1 Raigeki
(16)

1 Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Breakthrough Skill
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Dark Bribe
(7)

Kuribandit sometimes works against wyvern, so I can't do a good play with both of those. I took out Card Trooper because most of the time I ended up dropping spell or traps in the grave, I put The Calculator because Red Eyes Metal allows me to summon a bunch of dragons, and usually Calculator ends up with a lot of attack. Anyway, you're the expert so I hope you can help me out with this. I have about 30-40 dollars as a budget, and I really want to keep the red-eyes theme, I just really love the red eyes black dragon. Thanks!

Answer
Unfortunately, the Restricting of Soul Charge will lower this deck's playability considerably, since you'll no longer be able to play for advantage with Charges into Huge Fields and then finish with the Dragon Rulers.

I think you need Kuribandit more than ever now, since it helps you dig for the one Soul Charge, so I'd still go like this:

3 Red-Eyes Wyvern
3 Kurbandit
2 Red-Eyes B. Dragon
2 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
1 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
1 Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos
1 Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms
1 Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders
1 Flamvell Guard
1 Dread Dragon
1 Debris Dragon
1 Red-Eyes B. Chick
(18)

3 Dragon Shrine
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
3 Upstart Goblin
2 Silver's Cry
1 Raigeki
1 Soul Charge
1 Foolish Burial
1 Burial from a Different Dimension
1 Sacred Sword of Seven Stars
(16)

2 Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Breakthrough Skill
1 Solemn Warning
1 Call of the Haunted

Try that out.

Expertise

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.
