Question
Hi there I recently returned back to the game and I'll admit straight away that I like dragons...a lot :L With the imminent release of Rise of the True Dragons structure deck (the new one bieng released this week) I wanted to know:

1. What do you think of the deck in general?
2. Is it sufficiently good that I ought to pick up 3 copies?
3. How this could combine with Dragons Collide structure deck.

My sister and I started playing again recently just for a bit of fun. We're not so bothered about competitive play but we like to buy a structure deck or two and some singles and see where we get. Currently I have Dragons Collide and Master of Pendulum and she has Hero Strike, but I'm thinking I might buy 2 more MoP and maybe 3 RotTD. It looks to me as if RotTD and DC have very similar tactics (well, both have Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon et al.) so I wondered if the two dragon decks would actually combine well?

if they do could you help me out please possibly with a good enough deck for it as well . thank you

Answer
I think the deck's playable, but not competitive. It's just not good enough to displace the current decks in the metagame. It is however good for a fun deck, likened to the Chaos Dragon deck of old, and using similar strategy.
It should probably be combined with the Dragons Collide Structure like this:

3 Paladin of Felgrand
3 Raiden, Hand of the Lightsworn
3 Maxx C
2 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
2 Arkbrave Dragon
2 Lightpulsar Dragon
2 Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress
2 Black Dragon Collapserpent
2 Card Trooper
2 Divine Dragon Lord Felgrand
1 White Dragon Wyverburstar
1 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
1 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
(26)

3 Return of the Dragon Lords
2 Dragon Shrine
2 Charge of the Light Brigade
2 Ruins of the Divine Dragon Lords
1 Raigeki
1 Instant Fusion
1 Soul Charge
1 Upstart Goblin
1 Reinforcement of the Army
(14)

Give that 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.
