I don't really think the LIGHT half of this deck is doing you that much good. If you're going to focus on a engine here then I'd focus on the Rank 4 monsters and a few Level 8 Synchros, since you can use King of the Feral Imps to search for Masked Chameleon.

I'd make it look something like this:

3 Umbral Horror Ghoul
3 Umbral Horror Unform
3 Kagetokage
3 Maxx "C"
2 Umbral Horror Will o' the Wisp
2 Masked Chameleon
1 Secret Sect Druid Dru
1 Dark Armed Dragon

3 Instant Fusion
3 Upstart Goblin
2 Recurring Nightmare
2 Dark Hole
1 Raigeki
1 Allure of Darkness

3 Solemn Strike
3 Mirror Force
1 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Solemn Warning
1 Vanity's Emptiness
1 Time-Space Trap Hole

2 Elder Entity Norden
1 Stardust Dragon
1 Scrap Dragon
1 Crimson Blader
2 King of the Feral Imps
1 Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon
1 Number 66 - Master Key Beetle
1 Number 106 - Giant Hand
1 Castel the Skyblaster Musketeer
1 Daigusto Emeral
1 Abyss Dweller
1 Traptrix Rafflessia
1 Evilswarm Nightmare

3 Mask of Restrict
3 Anti-Spell Fragrance
3 Imperial Iron Wall
1 Macro Cosmos
1 Dimensional Fissure
1 Soul Drain
2 Cyber Dragon
1 Chimeratech Fortress Dragon

Give that 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.
